Traditionele Hatha Yoga in Amstelveen

Narveet Brar

Hatha Yoga Teacher at Yoga Minds Amstelveen.

For a long time, I was under the impression that yoga was about being flexible and performing complex asanas (yoga poses). However, the more I got into yoga, practicing regularly and studying its philosophy, I realized that this was a misconception and there is so much more to yoga than being able to touch your toes or ‘bending into a pretzel.’

“Yoga is the journey from yourself, through yourself, to yourself.” – Bhagavad Gita. 

Yoga is - as I discovered - a journey of self-discovery, connection, acceptance, patience, letting go, openness, and being present, both on and off the mat. 

Yoga at times can be confronting, challenges you and compels you to ask questions, and holds up a mirror of self-reflection for you. It will make you grow, learn, change and bring you closer to your true self. 

“You cannot do Yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are Yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state” – “Sharon Gannon”

Before I started my Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Minds, I spent some time in India following an intensive Yoga course which consisted of Asana, Pranayama, Mantras, Meditation and Yoga philosophy – after that course I was inspired to delve deeper into the practice, history and philosophy of yoga, and now I cannot imagine my life without Yoga - they say once you start on the path of yoga there is no going back, you must continue further. 

In my classes I incorporate the things I have learnt during my Yoga training and draw upon my own experience; I feel privileged to be able to share what I have learnt on my own journey during my classes at Yoga Minds.
