Yoga in Hong Kong

Namaste friends! Daniel Fonseca and I Jeenal Mehta conducted Yoga sessions on 4th and 5th October 2010 at the Life Management Yoga Centre (which also follows the tradition of The Yoga Institute of Santacruz) by invitation of Smt. Sangeeta Ahuja, during our visit to Hong Kong . Members of the Indian community and Chinese residents of Hong Kong attended the classes.

I conducted a special Yoga class for senior citizens where I taught Asanas following the Yogendra Rhythm of breathing and Simplified Yogendra Pranayamas followed by Om chanting and Shavasana.

Daniel conducted an intermediate Yoga class where he focused on intermediate group of Asanas like the Surya Namaskar and other Yogendra Asanas followed by Pranayamas and Shavasana.

In the above mentioned sessions, significance was given to body, mind and breath equally. Nowadays more and more emphasis is given to the physical aspect of Yoga leaving out the mental aspect. By inculcating the mental aspect during the Asana class reaps maximum benefit. Daniel and I both feel that it is very important to pay attention on the Attitude Training (Bhavas) while performing the Asanas as taught by The Yoga Institute of Santacruz.
Keep up with our blog for latest updates on our various workshops and activities. We'll be conducting a few more workshops abroad in 2011. If you wish to organise or host our Yoga workshops in your country then please feel free to share your ideas with us on
Much light, Namaste - Jeenal
