The Ashtanga Pilgrimage: Journey to Mysore

Mysore. It’s the name of both a style of Ashtanga yoga practice and the place in which it originated. While the individualized, supervised self-practice that takes its name from this South Indian city is practiced world over, every year hundreds of practitioners make the pilgrimage to study in this mecca of Ashtanga yoga. Some return year after year, making the effort to spend time in this special place a central part of their lives. What draws yoga practitioners from around the word to make the long journey to Mysore?  A Return to Roots...

Seva Project with It’s Yoga Nicaragua

Reforestation on the Pacific Coast An important part in building our Yoga Community in Nicaragua is the Seva projects. Using the yogic term Seva as in selfless service, service without expectations of return or giving back to our planet is a part of the yoga practice and we believe we can help restore and conserve the eco environment in Ostional, Nicaragua where we also have our yoga base. In 2012 It’s Yoga Nicaragua started a collaboration with Paso Pacifico to replant a very sensitive and unique river bench area in Ostional. Through this...

Ashtanga Yoga and Scoliosis

Can scoliosis  be healed with Ashtanga Yoga? The answer would be both yes and no depending on what type of scoliosis we are talking about and what we mean by healing. There are generally two types of scoliosis: Functional scoliosis which is a structural normal spine with a lateral curve often caused by muscular spasm or a difference in leg length. If the curve is caused by muscular spasm this type could be entirely corrected by yoga. Structural scoliosis involves a lateral curve with a rotation and it is irreversible. This type of...

Ashtanga Yoga Myths

There are some misleading myths circulating about Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga discouraging people from taking on the practice.  We always stress the importance of keeping the practice clean and connected to the roots and at the same time make it accessible for more people. I do believe that Ashtanga Yoga has gotten a reputation of being something it is not and maybe we can help clarify a little by looking at some of the myths. Myth #1: ASHTANGA YOGA IS POWER YOGA This is a letter from Sri.K. Pattabhi Jois (the guru of Ashtanga Yoga) to Yoga...

The Point of Yoga

The misconceptions about yoga – Mysore practice with Peter Samson The Mysore Style is the traditional way of practicing yoga as it was taught in Mysore, India, by Sri K Pattabhi Jois.  The student is taught a sequence of postures through one-on-one instruction which allows each student to practice and learn in his/her own pace. The yoga-shala is packed with students, several waiting outside for others to leave the room so that they, in their turn, can start their practice. The room is hot with steamy windows and you can hear the sound of...

Living In The Question

Living In The Question

In our yoga school we encourage our students to look within and pay attention to any questions arising during the practice or during the daily life as these questions are of great importance for our wellbeing. We want to learn how to stay with the question, not necessarily finding an answer or getting all stressed out about not knowing the answer, just observing what feelings and thoughts are brought to the surface. A dynamic way towards self realisation and being conscious with what questions arising is asking the question what is true...
