Our story began in 2012 when we started our practice yoga together, we shared each other story, laughed and had fun together !! We all share the same passion, we love yoga, and experience the benefits from practicing yoga. We want more to share our experience and knowledge, so it can be blessings for others. THis is our vision. This is what bound us together. This is why Yoga Heart is built, because we love yoga, we love each other, we love you and we love what we do.
We know that each of us is unique and wonderful individually, but when we bring the very best of us TOGETHER, we will complete each other weakness, we will support each other strength, we will encourage each other to grow, and together we will be even better.
How does YOGA mean to Yoga Heart?
We believe our bodies are living tissues in a state of constant change. All systems in the body interact with each other. To change any system is to change the whole, and maintaining the proper balance mean a physical health. This is the fundamental of yoga and hollistic health, of where Yoga Heart approach the wellness of being.
The fact is that practicing yoga is not only bring positive impact to the physical health, yoga also relax and bring clarity to the mind, awaken our consciousness, make us see clearly into who we are. Yoga at the same time teach us how to surrender and flow, open our heart, liberate our boundaries and teach us how to harmonize ourselves to the cycle of life. Yoga helps us to recognize and accept ourselves. Only when we are grateful for who we are, secure into ourselves, we can bulid our confidence and ignite the fire to pursue our dream, to transcend our limitations and expand in every direction of life.
The health of body is not only depend on the practice of yoga. Healthy is a perfect equilibrium of the body, mind, intellect, and soul (BKS Iyengar). It is FOOD that nourishes the body, mind and consciousness, and we plant the habit of healthy lifestyle to support our yoga practice. According to Ayurveda, the internal environment of the body is constantly reacting to the external environment. Disorders occurs when these two are out of balance. The climate is one of the important element to maintain our health. How can we say we are healthy if we live in a non healthy environment? The soil we step, the water we drink, the air we breath, are all important aspect of our health. The earth is our HOME. Taking good care to our earth, is our yoga practice off the mat and essential for our health.
Does Yoga Heart adopt any specific style of yoga?
We have experienced different style of yoga, most of us started with Iyengar Yoga to learn the alignment, but then we infused our practice with style of yoga. We can say that all of us embody a flowing practice of yoga with different inspiration. Some of us incorporate Prana Flow, and others bring Vinyasa Yoga, Anurasa Yoga, apply Therapeutic Yoga, Yin Yoga, sparkle with some Tripshichore Yoga, Kapha Yoga, or many other style of yoga into our practice. We respect and grateful for the varieties available for us to learn. All those knowledge blend with our own experiences and personality, that transform us into our teaching today.
We respect the alignment in yoga asanas. We apply physical and energetical alignment in our teaching. But what we most concern is building a good foundation, then each of us can bloom beautifully into who we really are. We understand that each of us has a different physical body and needs, different emotion and mind. We encourage every one to observe and learn about our own body, to get connected more with our own heart, to listen, to feel, to understand more about ourselves. Only then we have the root to empower ourselves, to gather the strength to bloom and to liberate ourselves in the flow of life. By the time we will understand, that even there are many yoga paths available, many teachers we can learn from, we are not looking for the best, nor the most popular. We are looking for the one that resonate with our heart !

through the self
to the self”
