Yoga Classes in Hong Kong
Ananda Marga offers yoga classes in Hong Kong at our centre in Kwai Fong. Our yoga practices consist of 42 asanas (yogic postures), 13 mudras (exercise to strengthen muscles and nerves) and 5 pranayamas (breathing exercises that balance our subtle energy centres or cakras). We cover the full range of poses: standing, sitting, forward bend, backward bend, twists and inverted. Our style of yoga also includes a technique of self massage to rejuvenate the immune system and yogic dances which have numerous benefits for the body and mind.The classes are tailored for the beginner and no previous experience is required to learn. Our style of yoga is gentle and restorative, with frequent pauses in deep relaxation to enable the practitioner to assimilate the effect of the pose on their entire body.
In fact the asanas are a means to make the body flexible and subtle so that one can sit and enjoy the higher level of yoga known as meditation. Each class has a short practice of guided meditation to enable you to learn this practice easily and enjoyably. A topic relating to the yogic lifestyle (diet, fasting, use of water, yogic ethics, balancing the cakras) is also explained every week to deepen your knowledge of this esoteric yet totally practical approach to living fully and holistically.
Asanas and More
People tend to think of Yoga as complicated stretching exercises. Yet the most helpful of these exercises, also called asanas, are not very difficult to practice. It only takes a little time to develop the flexibility of our joints. More importantly, asanas also work on a deeper level: by subtle pressure on the glands of our body, they balance our hormones. Hormones play a key role in our overall health and well-being. Almost all physical and mental diseases can be linked to an imbalance in the glands of our body.
