The 7 chakras

January 29, 2018

Wow, the chakras… There is so much to say about them… I will be writing a few articles soon about diverse energy healing methods and clearly it seemed necessary to go back to the basics and write a whole article about chakras. As you might have guessed or heard, Indians (from India) have discovered their existence, so in sanskrit chakras mean wheel. The wheel of transmission between the universal consciousness and the body and that connects us to the universe…

Kundalini Yoga – Rishikesh, India

December 21, 2017

All these types of Yoga, it’s just always a little confusing even overwhelming at times, isn’t it? And now, we even add the Kundalini, that renown but not always well understood powerful energy. So first things first… Let’s start with what Kundalini is. From the discussions I had on that subject, it is the exact same energy as prana, chi, ki, etc. It is the universal energy It lays in the first chakra and we talk about kundalini awakening when…

Mantras

October 27, 2017

Ahhhh mantras … So much beauty! These sacred chants filled my daily life with divine vibrations since my trip to Bali last year where I discovered the Gayatri Mantra, the most famous Hindu mantra and many others … Since then, I use them a lot during energy treatments on others and for myself at any time of the day. The mantras are at the heart of the Indian Vedic culture. In Sanskrit, the first syllable “man” means manas, the mind…

Malas

October 26, 2017

I met Arun and Shyam, thanks to a beautiful friend of mine, Nadia, who took us (Rosy and I), on a very rainy day, into that boutique, in Rishikesh, to buy malas for her yoga school… And OH MY GOD!!

We had a lot of fun with Shyam, talking about the stones, discovering what stones would be best for us, how to choose them etc. etc. and ended up…

Yoga… what’s to know?

August 17, 2017

As a lot of people, I assumed that Yoga was a nice physical activity, aligning the layers of my being (body, mind and soul), by practicing postures with awareness etc. Well, I could not be farther to what Yoga really is than this. Indeed, the physical part with the practice of postures is such a tiny bit of what Yoga is. Thanks to India & beautiful encounters that allowed me to receive teachings and guidance in my practice, I managed to…

Healing with mudras

August 7, 2017

Mudras are hand gestures that were used in meditation and that are now used in the yoga practice: yoga asanas, meditation, ceremonies, dance etc. It is considered that each finger of the hand corresponds to an element, the same way Ayurveda considers that each cell of our body is composed of the 5 elements: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Ether. The thumb corresponds to the fire element, the index to the air element, the middle finger is the ether element, ring finger is…

June 9, 2017

While I was in Paris, in May 2017, a friend offered me to go to a shamanic yin yoga class. Yin yoga being my favorite practice of yoga and shamanism being a practice in which I am particularly interested, I agreed of course. In order to better understand what shamanic yin yoga means, I did a research on the internet and found only very little info. Here is the presentation of the Tiger Yoga Club: “Asana, Mantras, Music, Gong meditations and Shamanic…
