Yoga with Padmini

The spring of joy is always within us, we just need to discover it and remember that its flow is not subject to any external influences or circumstances.

Yoga is more than just perfect asanas to beautify the physical body. Asana is just a slice of what can be experienced through the full practice of yoga.

The essence of Ananda Yoga

In recent years, many yogis have committed themselves to an eclectic approach to Hatha yoga, lumping together techniques and approaches from many different traditions. True yoga, however, is not just a collection of techniques. A genuine yoga tradition holds to a specific ray of divine grace because that ray is the source of its power.

Swami Kriyananda states : “Yoga’s purpose is spiritual, and since Hatha yoga is the physical branch of Raja Yoga*, Hatha yoga must have a spiritual purpose. It can’t be just to give you a good body."

Ananda Yoga practice is about generating and increasing an inward and upward flow of energy in a safe, balanced, conscious way. Therefore, every part of Ananda Yoga — including and especially one’s attitude — should contribute to this goal.

*Raja or “royal” yoga is a combination of several yogas including bhakti (devotional) yoga, gyana (wisdom) yoga, and karma (service) yoga.

Is it really yoga?

Benefits are not only esthetic. The face is our main media of communication, hosting and shaping our speech, gaze, expressions, emotions… our identity. Beyond reducing wrinkles and improving skin condition, face yoga can be considered mostly as a path towards personal wellbeing, and self-confidence. Along with all other types of yoga, it includes deep breathing exercises, increases awareness and consciousness of our own body. The positive impacts are tremendous and numerous on breathing, digestion, relationships, motivation, general mood… but also on preventing some pathologies, singing or theatre practices, and even snoring!

How does it work? For who?

Face yoga is suited for all, both men and women, young and seniors. It is a holistic approach for every person in search for a natural and respectful way to take care of oneself, without any expensive and often inadequate treatments. During the sessions, participants are taught several exercises to tense and relax facial and neck muscles, focusing on a specific part, such as eyes, forehead, mouth, cheeks, cleavage, and so on. This increases blood circulation and lymphatic flow, so that the skin cells are saturated with oxygen, bringing a rejuvenated aspect. In addition, stronger mimic muscles will not be affected as much as before by daily pressures (gravitation, habits, life style…). With at least 10 minutes of practice a day, it won't take long to see visible changes. Often, even after the first practice, there are already noticeable lasting changes.
