Yoga blocks and their superpowers

The bricks are used to “raise the floor”, bring it closer to the student and thereby facilitate the presence in the asana.

And now more specifically: what gives the use of yoga blocks?

1. The correctness of the detuning

Often, when we really want to touch the floor, for example in Parshvottanasana (link), and the flexibility is not enough, we end up sacrificing safety and bend the back.

Ambitions-1, the right fulfilling asanas-0. Is it worth risking the lower back? Hardly.

Placing the blocks under the hands changes this situation: we get a stable support and carefully work out the asana without forcing events. Continue reading

About the destruction of the consciousness of men and about alcohol

About the destruction of the consciousness of men and about alcohol.
Let’s look at specific life examples. Namely, what we can now observe in our society.

For certain reasons, for certain purposes, some forces invented alcohol and introduced it everywhere, all over the world.

Yoga Nidra – magical yogic dream (part 1)

Do you agree with the statement that relaxation for modern Westerners is an art that needs to be learned? Or are you convinced that relaxing means coming home, leaning back in an armchair, closing your eyes … Maybe splashing something relaxing in a glass or turning on a relaxing TV / computer? Many believe that it is enough to go to bed and relaxation will come automatically. But why, then, having overslept a seemingly sufficient number of hours, do you wake up tired and broken? Stress becomes habitual, we stop noticing it until it “shoots” with increased pressure, asthma, an ulcer or other bad sore. Thoughts, anxieties and worries are brewed in the head even at night, burdening dreams. Yogis call this dream “Nidra.” But there is another type of sleep, free of burden – this is YOGA NIDRA or yogic dream or “dream without dreams” as it is also called. Continue reading
