Keep it clean!

How are you taking care of your yoga mat? As you sweat in practice while your feet and hands constantly on the mat and so as your forehead, you defiantly want to make sure it is clean before you use. 

What I do for the mat in número 6 studio is pretty easy and standard way you can do quickly.

1) If the mat is lightly soiled,  wipe the surface with tea tree oil water or yoga mat cleaner like stirlen yoga mat spray. You can find various recipes of natural cleansing spray from internet. 


 2 ) If the mat is heavily used, put the mat in your washing machine with mild detergent, wash it in cold water with gentle spin in the end. Dry it naturally, never use dryer!

I tend to do 1) in daily basis, and 2) when it is necessary. to bring stickiness back to your mat, washing is good idea for it too. Most sticky mats are machine washable but check before you actually through it into water. It is usually mentioned on the package of the mats when you purchase them.  Of course the mats available to purchase from número 6 is also machine washable.  Try it if you haven't done that before, practice on the clean mat is simply great.

In the class

it's been weeks since last time i attended a yoga class, i wasn't in the mood (mostly because i practice in the morning and teach during the day, so i'm pretty tired by the evening)  but i went this evening.  the best thing about attending class is even though you are not mentally or physically ready, the atmosphere created by other yogis helps you to lift the energy level. some people go to yoga classes just for that benefit of atmosphere to put themselves in the mood of practice. making a habit of yoga practice takes time. 


Anyway, in that class, the teacher said "if you have a flexible spine, you can stay young forever" This reminds me of this 92 years old yoga teacher. yoga keeps you young, healthy and beautiful.

berlin with Manju P. Jois



what a week with Manju. he changed my perspective towards yoga practice a looooooot. his teaching was the most authentic and traditional way i've ever known but still down to earth and relaxed at the same time. probably what he teaches is the simple truth so everything never gets old-fashion or biased. 


i already taking new things into numero6 classes, which is the set of asana (physical poses), pranayama (breathing technic) and mantra (chanting). asana lift your energy up and then pranayama and mantra bring it back down so your energy after the practice is peaceful and calm. he said "yoga classes in the west usually teaches only asana and creates aggressive people in the class. yoga is not about body but energy flow, unity of body and mind. so we need to practice body, mind, sprit as a set."

I promise to share more of his words and pictures soon again. please keep checking this blog!
