About me and the yoga that I teach
My name is Tomas. I started practicing yoga about 6 years ago, but had been on a search for the one that would suit me best for a few years. I had been to classes that looked more like esoteric sessions than yoga, where we rested more than practiced and i really was not learning much and was not getting anywhere.
All that is written about yoga above and my experience with it changed when I went to India in 2014 and discovered Ashtanga yoga. I started to discover the amazing system and it all started to finally make sense. That was when i thought – so, this is the real thing! Very quickly, I knew that this is something I wanted to practice on a regular basis and really start learning and go deep and practice daily. Later, I wanted to share this great teaching of yoga with other people, so I started attending workshops and teacher training. I am following the old school method, learning from other teachers who are following the same, and when I can I learn directly from the oldest generation of people who teach Ashtanga yoga nowadays.
Ashtanga yoga is a traditional school of yoga that dates back more than 5000 years. It has been taught in a teacher-student setting, called parampara, for ages. This yoga school originated in Tibet. The practice was put together from the old scriptures by Sri T. Krischnamacharya, who taught it to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois – he, on the basis of his own research, developed the system to the form we know today.
Ashtanga yoga is divided into four series. Everyone must start with the first series, which is also called Yoga Chikitsa, or yoga therapy. The first series is designed to purify and detoxify the body, make it healthy, strong and flexible. Everyone gradually learns how to practice the sequence of the first series, so that he/she can practice it also alone and that it suits his/her abilities and limits.
Every position has an alternative so everyone can practice…whether you are young, old, healthy, sick, strong, weak, flexible or not. It is suitable for a total beginner, in fact it is the best, because we start from the very basics! Whatever the reason is that you would like to try yoga – wheteher you have a sedentary job and want to help your aching back, get stronger, more flexible and improve your overall health, or you want it as a tool on your spiritual path, or even both, I will help you – we will work together to develop a practice that will suit you best.
Yoga is based on breath and movement. The cornerstone of ashtanga yoga is vinyasa – synchronization of breath and movement in a set order. It leads us into and out of every position with the movement connected to our breath. Other important aspects are breath ujjayi, bandhas and dristhi. Don’t worry you will learn it all 🙂
This old style of yoga is the last one that teaches us how to build our own yoga practice. And really, that is all it should be about if we really want it to work – be able to practice everywhere, practice consistently, with dedication and correctly.
You don’t have to worry about parking or getting to your yoga class in a traffic jam. Private classes with me can take place anywhere – in your home, office or a rented space wherever it suits you best and we will find a time that is best for you.
