Sufi is the celebration of the heart, it is the taste, it is the fragrance of love. If you once got drunk with the wine of Love, if you felt - even once - silence to sing softly in your heart, then come in this caravan of untold, silent love story. Every session would have an unique flow with assorted sufi awareness practices coming from various Sufi Mystics and Orders. These techniques were practiced by different Sufi mystics in different times. Here we practice together in a group and create an experience for all.”

Zen Yoga has announced a course on Backbending by Laura Farrier. Their words, “full body bending, as we often use much more than just our spine, is an integral part of any asana practice. Those of us who experience tightness in the back often either skim this part of our practice or avoid it altogether. Others, ignore the practice of Yamas and Niyamas, those attitudes and behaviors that epitomize the spirit of yoga, and refuse to listen to the bodies wisdom while grasping for a ‘deeper’ opening. The result of both is that we stop practicing with awareness and breath. In a backbend focused class we will look at various poses and explore how to come into them in safe and mindful way. With particular attention of using the yogic breath to create both comfort and control in any backbend. Essentially the goal of the class is to find value the health and integrity of your body more than the glory of a deeper backbend by highlighting the primary function of the pose—the opening—more than the final shape or form of the posture.”

One of the fundamental commands of God is to do dhikr as often as possible until continual awareness of the Divine Presence is established. Through dhikr, Sufi masters train students to purify their hearts and souls. We do some selected Sufi Dhikr(Zikr). Among the practices of the Sufis, “Zikr”, or the breathing exercise has the central importance. The Sufi Breathing Exercise is the first step of some Sufi Orders. Their breathing technique’s can have life-changing effects, they appear to be simple to practice, but its effects can be miraculous. We do these techniques to become more awareful of our actions and being and also heartful in our relating with ourselves and higher consciousness/ divine self.”

This is because the mind is only a tool that we can learn to control. By meditating we can consciously bring our brain waves into the theta state, one level below that of sleep and so rejuvenate the body. The different forms of meditation all have the same outcome, the important thing to remember is to find a way that suits you, one that you are comfortable with. It is difficult to learn to meditate on your own. Too often there are distractions that will interrupt your meditation time, or it’s just too hard to have the dedication to do it on your own regularly. What is a guided meditation? Quite simply, it means that you will be guided throughout the meditation on what to do. From relaxation techniques so that you can enter the meditative state easily to an actual meditation, where you are guided through visual imagery to release stress and tension. Meditation topics vary depending on what is wanted or required. <<< BACK
