gilbert-ng-01Dynamic vs static. Soft vs hard. Yin vs Yang.

In yoga, the most important element is to strike a balance between both sides.

According to Gilbert Ng, the former Chief Instructor at Yoga Zone and currently, a well-known international yoga trainer, a yoga practitioner should not always practise just one form of yoga because one favours it but should try to switch between the two to suit the condition of the body.

And what is dynamic and static yoga?

The Perfect World of Yoga

Posted by jean on 27 Mar 09 - 17 Comments

The Perfect Yoga Studio that faces the main road of Bandar Puteri, Puchong was hard to miss as I turned off the LDP. Located on the third floor of a row of shops, the studio sits directly above Ambank, which shines like a beacon with its trademark red logo. As I entered the premises of the studio, I was greeted by the warm smiles of Hoo Chee Heng, Director of Perfect Yoga, and Pradeep G Gowda, the master teacher of the yoga centre.

Joining us soon afterwards was Tracy Chaw, Founder and Director of the Perfect Yoga studios. She was friendly and unassuming; and hardly gave off airs that one might expect from an entrepreneur who had now expanded her business from a humble 2800 sq ft. studio in 2005 to the five studio yoga chain and spa facility today.

The Yogic Lifestyle

Posted by jean on 20 Mar 09 - 1 Comment

Ooooommm… ooooomm… breathe in… breathe out… Yoga is the perfect exercise to release you from all mental stress at the end of a long day. However, serious yoga practitioners and gurus will be quick to remind you that much more than just an exercise, yoga is a way of life; one which encompasses the five principles of yoga that enables you to maintain a healthy body and mind. The five principles are proper relaxation, exercise, breathing, diet and positive thinking and meditation.

Proper Relaxation

Thinking of what groceries to buy after class or mentally reliving a confrontation with your boss earlier at work are examples of two big no-nos during a yoga class. The true benefits of yoga can only be unlocked when you are able to leave all worries at bay and train your mind and body to achieve total relaxation while performing the exercise. Read more »

Yoga and Christianity 3

Posted by admin on 26 Feb 09 - 5 Comments

Continued from Part 2

Health Benefits
There are many people who testify to the health benefits of doing yoga. Celebrity instructor Ninie Ahmad blogged that:

“From the age of age of 13 to 17, I suffered chronically from asthma, requiring me making biweekly visits to hospital for treatment, subsequently inhibiting me from participating in physical activities and sports. After my introduction to yoga at the age of 18, God willing, I have not experienced a single asthma attack since…”

Check out Ninie’s fun post also, it is very humuorous.

Many Christians who practice yoga readily admit to its health benefits. There is no dispute that doing yoga poses makes you feel good. It is interesting that the bible does not mention exercise but remember that at the time of Jesus, people travelled on foot in contrast to our society today. Read more »

Yoga and Christianity 2

Posted by admin on 04 Feb 09 - 6 Comments

Continued from Part 1

The goal of the Christian life is one of character development, to become more Christ-like, and to bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit (which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control).

Character Development & Suffering
Christians know God and develop character through trials and sufferings. So the bible actually says to rejoice in sufferings, eg.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
James 1:2-4 Read more »

Yoga and Christianity 1

Posted by admin on 02 Feb 09 - 5 Comments

Much has been said about Yoga and Islam over recent months. So what about Yoga and Christianity? Is it OK for Christians to practice yoga?

The Bible does not say that you cannot do yoga, but many Christians remain opposed to the practice of yoga. Why is this so? The reasons usually given are along these lines:

1. Yoga has its roots in Hinduism and involves the worship of Hindu deities
2. Certain postures in yoga can be likened to the serpent who is also our spiritual enemy

So against this background I’ve decided to take a closer look at the Bible to see what God really says. Read more »

Aerobic, Anaerobic and Yoga

Posted by admin on 21 Jan 09 - 2 Comments

Have you ever followed an exercise plan religiously only to be frustrated that you still have that extra 10 pounds round your waist?

If so it will be helpful for you to know that health and fitness are not the same.

What do I mean exactly?

Well fitness is the physical ability to perform athletic activity. Health takes it one step further… it is a state where all systems in your body (nervous, muscular, skeletal, circulatory, digestive etc) are working at optimum levels.

Many people think that fitness implies health, the truth is that they don’t necessarily come together. Read more »
