  1. He goes straight to your heart.
  2. Check Forrest Knutson on YouTube. He has a Kriya Yoga background and has posted many videos on YouTube about breathing and yogic breath. He just released and online course about breathing. It's worth it.
  3. After 6 month of traveling India (mainly Rishikesh and Kerala) I decided to become a Yoga Teacher. Before this journey I was stuck in an office job that was frustrating and boring. So I decided to quit this thing and throw myself totally into the unknown. My body was quite stiff at that time and I was mentally unstable, but I knew intuitively that learning Yoga will be the most important thing in my life. And I was right - in the last eight month since I started this journey I became a totally new person - almost free of any inner distraction, much more calm and in a good mood most of the time. The method I learned is kind of a nice mixture of Hatha and Kriya Yoga. There is a lot of attention on Pranayama and and Meditation (but basically all steps of Patranjalis Yoga Sutras are involved). It is definitely a more spiritual form of Yoga compared to the western fitness Yoga model. This makes it often times more dificult to digest for people who have no clue what Yoga is about. They think it is just a physical activity like stretching. For the next few month I want to establish my own Yoga courses. Luckely there is a possibility to start teaching one course a week in my old Yoga school. The future plan is to have my own Yoga school and to really teach in my own style. I really feel that I can help people becoming more healthy and more conscious and that is my main pupose on this mission. Did any of you guys go this path too? Any recommendations for building a Yoga school or being a Yoga teacher?
  4. @passerby Man, this blog changed my life. I already came in contact with Ayurveda but now I see it under a whole you paradigm. Basically everything that western science "found out" is wrong because all the diets and health advices change over the years. Here the author debunks the western template of health and diet: https://trueayurveda.wordpress.com/2019/04/15/do-we-in-the-west-have-any-clue-what-is-healthy-to-eat/
  5. The videos got deleted. Anyone saved them?
  6. Great stuff. When you think about it - all the mantras have been chanted throughout the centuries by thousands of devotees for the purpose of connecting to the devine. These vibrations are send out into infinite space and they will exist forever. So when you play these mantras or chant them you connect to these frequencies and with that you connect to a higher source. Check also this channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/tunczykowo/videos
  7. I am blown away. You have the abilty to give people a huge motivation boost and I like the way you express yourself.
  8. If you want to become an expert in drinking water this might help ;-) https://food.ndtv.com/health/7-ayurvedic-tips-to-drink-water-that-you-didnt-know-1686718
  9. Ayurveda calls Ecto-, Meso- and Endomorph Vata, Pitta and Kapha. If you dig a bit into ayurvedic literature you can figure out what suites your type the best.
  10. @Leo Gura We love shortcuts. The question is - is this a sustainable way to become your highest self?
  11. Eat fresh regional and seasonal food. Best Nootropic
  12. The Bhagavat Gita interpretation by Yogananda - God talks with Arjuna.
  13. Two good books about living in the Himalayas and meditating in caves are by Swami Rama - Living with the himalayan masters and Om swami - A truth to be told. It's funny that you think about how to go to the toilet when you think about such a drastical lifestyle 😁
  14. @Mu_ What is Meditation for you? Are preliminary practices like Yoga or Pranayama useful to get into Meditation more easy? What advices would you give a beginner starting with meditation?
  15. @Rilles This is why I won't try modafinil. Risk is too high
  16. @Salvijus Yes authentic is the right word. He lived in caves and had several gurus that teached him the vedic yoga life. If you want to know more about the origin of his teaching check out the book: Swami Rama - living with the himalayan masters. I also realized that my body was not at all ready to practice Kriya yoga on my own. My spine is quite deformed and it has to be fixed first.
  17. @Salvijus Yeah I did the 200 hour ytt last month. In conclusion it was a good experience because I learned alot about asanas, yoga philosophy, alignement and so on. But it was also very commercialised and the teachers were rather young and inexperienced. Also the whole group dynamic and instagram culture by the other students was rather annoying for me because I'm searching for true spirituallity. Now I'm blessed to have found a real original teacher - a true yogi who was able to tranform me within 3 weeks of practice. Never in my life I made such a drastic change for the better in all aspects of life- physically, mentally and spiritually. And I will go on with the training for 2 more months. So if anyone is interested to check him out just write me. He has no advertisement. He can also prepare you for a Kriya Sadhana.
  18. Feels bad. I had that reaction too with antibiotics. It's no joke: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevens–Johnson_syndrome
  19. What do you mean with "help me with spirituality"? If you want to learn about yoga and meditation go to Rishikesh. Be aware - today there are thousands of yoga schools and so called ashrams that just want your money. It's hard to find the perls. If you are serious about connecting with your higher Self send me a PM. I found a true himalayan yog teacher who was a disciple of Swami Rama and he will transform your whole life - a no bullshit guru.
  20. What pluto is saying
  21. @llumi Heres the number: +91 135 2433837 and mail: yogastudycentre(at)yahoo.in You can also see him: @Salvijus Doin it right now ;-) Very good decicion so far. Learning from books is not as powerful as I thought. real teachers with a lot of background knowledge will bring you on aother level quick.
  22. What would you do if you were free from financial struggle and just had one more year to live? Here is an app by Om Swami that could help you getting a direction: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rt.pinprickeffect.meditation&hl=de
  23. @ajasatya Living in India is cheap, yes. Doing Yoga and the teacher trainings are quite expensive because most of them are adepted to western people. If you search a bit you will find Yogis that will give you lessons on donation. Look for Rudra Dev in Rishikesh.
  24. @llumi I'm starting my YTT 200 hour in Rishikesh in early December. I'm gonna stay in India till May 2019 and I'm trying to find some more ashrams/teachers that gonna help me on my way. I hope to find a good Kriya Yoga teacher aswell because I'm not sure with some asanas/mudras etc. The Osho center in Pune und Sadhgurus foundation are also on the "bucket list" ;-). If you need help with a Yoga school in Rishikesh just write me a PM
