Ashtanga Yoga self-practice in Koh Samui

Inspired by our recent Ashtanga Yoga workshop, we are excited to start an experimental project in Yoga House & Spa for those who practice this style of yoga (as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois).

Starting this week, you are welcome each Monday, Wednesday & Friday* at 6:30 AM, to join our self-practice classes! It means there will be no teacher and you can do your sequence on your own pace like at home and share a group energy like at Mysore classes.

You can bring your own mat or use one of those we have. Your participation is donation based and no booking is required to join. Please don't be late as we will close the entrance at 6:30 and start to practice regardless somebody has come.

* With an exception for full/new moon days.

P.S. Please note the yoga style in use for these classes is limited to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga (by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois). You need to have at least some basic experience in Ashtanga Primary series and you are the only one who's responsible for what you're doing on the mat and its consequences.

During this process, a magnetic field is created which neutralizes negative energy and reinforces positive energy.

Медитации с поющими чашами и гонгом, среда/пятница в 19:00

Рады представить вам медитации с гималайскими поющими чашами (по средам в 19:00) и с гонгом (по пятницам в 19:00). Приходите попробовать!

Гонг — древний инструмент, используемый для лечебных целей, а также для обновления организма и внутренних трансформаций. Он генерирует сильную звуковую волну, ощутимую практически как прикосновение, и стимулирует физическое тело, проникая в него от поверхности кожи до каждой клетки.

Гонг снимает напряжение и блоки в теле, стимулирует работу желез и нервной системы, увеличивает количество жизненной энергии (праны) и улучшает её циркуляцию. Глубоко работает с ментальным, эмоциональным и духовным телами, очищая их и успокаивая ум.

Гималайские поющие чаши на протяжении веков использовались в лечебных целях и для медитаций. Они генерируют специальный диапазон звуков, которые способствуют гармонизации нашего тела и ума.

Проводимые у нас сеансы не связаны напрямую с какой-либо духовной традицией, продолжаются около 1 часа. Вы будете лежать в расслабленной позе (шавасане), сконцентрировав свой ум на дыхании или звуках поющих чаш и гонга. Стоимость участия — 300 бат.

Как правило, медитация начинается сразу после вечернего занятия по йоге и мы рекомендуем посетить оба мероприятия для лучшего эффекта (но можно приходить и на любое событие по отдельности). Добро пожаловать!
