June 2019 : Yoga for Health Series – Backpain and Spinal Health

Complaints of lower back pain are common in today’s modern society, even among those who spend time exercising frequently. If exercise is the key to overcoming health issues, what are we not doing right to ensure that our lower backs are well taken care of? We constantly overuse our lower back daily, putting it into actions beyond its function and range for extended periods of time, such as hunching over the computer or our phones, carrying heavy load on one shoulder and poor posture.  

This workshop aims to look at simple ways we can incorporate changes to our daily habits, performing daily exercises to strengthen this area and how to become more aware of our bodies to avoid repetitive stress injuries. We’ll take a look at this region at a physical and subtle level to address the issues holistically from a yoga perspective.

Pre-requisites:

1. No prior experience of yoga required

2. A genuine interest in learning about lower back health and simple methods for rehabilitation.

3. General good health. Please check with us if you have certain medical conditions before signing up.

4. An open mind and heart.

This Workshop is part of the Yoga for Health Series that Yoga Mala will be offering over the months to come. The aim of these workshops is to revisit the yogic practices and how they can help us manage our daily lives better. Yoga, undiluted, is a practice that is accessible to all. 

Each session will cover fundamentals on posture and anatomy. For practice, there will be relevant asana and pranayama that will help alleviate the health issue. Participants are encouraged to continue the practice at home after the workshops to obtain benefit from the yoga practices.

Doctor’s recommendation is required for participants with chronic issues and it is suggested to contact us before signing up.

July 2019 : Yoga for Health Series – Neck Pain & Forward Neck 

In this Yoga for Health Workshop Series, we explore how yoga can address common daily health concerns and complaints.  

Complaints of neck pain and tight shoulders are commonly seen and heard. Common causes of neck pain could be stress, muscle weakness, poor posture or cervical misalignment. Even regular yoga practitioners are not spared of neck pain if they go about their daily lives with little awareness of their posture, breath, emotions and mind.    

This workshop aims to look at simple ways we can incorporate changes to our daily habits, performing daily exercises to strengthen and realign our neck. We’ll take a look at this region at a physical and subtle level to address the issues holistically from a yoga perspective.

Pre-requisites:

1. No prior experience of yoga required

2. A genuine interest in learning about neck health and simple methods for rehabilitation.

3. General good health. Please check with us if you have certain medical conditions before signing up.

4. An open mind and heart.

July 2019 : 50 Hours Progressive Pranayama Course with Raj

Pranayama techniques aim to develop awareness and control of the breath, which indirectly awakens and expands prana. Through pranayama, we work with prana to enhance vitality, will, strength, manage illnesses, boost capability and efficiency, and to evolve to a higher state of consciousness.

Pranayama’s benefits are not just physical. It works on subtler levels of our body, enabling us to achieve higher levels of ourselves. Every practice should be treated with respect and under an experienced teacher. The teacher offers suitable counts, length and duration for the practice and within the capabilities of each practitioner.

Pre-requisites:

1. No prior experience in pranayama required

2. Dedication, discipline and genuine interest in learning pranayama.

3. General good health. Please check with us if you have certain medical conditions before signing up.

Each session is progressive and builds upon the previous.

The sessions will cover fundamentals on sitting, theory on pranayama in yoga, bandhas relevant to pranayama and types of pranayama. 

The course will focus on teachings and techniques during the contact hours and the non-contact hours will be home-practice. 

Participants may sign up for just 1 level at a time or all levels. However, participants must complete 1 level before progressing to the next. Should the participant miss a level, they will have to wait till the next round of 50 Hours Pranayama Course to continue with subsequent levels. 

This course is non-examinable. 

1. To develop an independant Pranayama practice.

2. To increase one’s breath capacity. 

3. To expand one’s awareness of prana and pranic storage.

4. To attain calmness and clarity in daily life through the breath and dimension of prana (life force).
