Yoga

The word yoga means union or unity. This union is described in spiritual terms as the union of individual consciousness with universal consciousness. Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonizing body, mind, and emotions. This is done by the practice of asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, shatkarma, and meditation.

It is necessary to achieve union with the ultimate reality. The control and discipline will take you to that state when atman (individual soul) merges with paramatman (supreme soul).

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a self-healing system and has been practiced in India for more than 5,000 years. Yoga, Tantra, and Ayurveda are mentioned in the scriptures of the Vedas and Upanishads.

Ayurveda means knowledge of life, and its purpose is to help the individual to achieve longevity, rejuvenation, and self-realization. In proper balance, the process of physical deterioration and disease can be reduced. Ayurveda focuses not just on healing disease but even more so on prevention and maintenance of a healthy life in harmony with existence.

The ayurvedic literature is based on the Samkhya philosophy and is the source of all life. It is a science of truth as it is expressed in life. This sacred knowledge evolved from the Rishis. These seers of truth, perceived a close relationship between man and the universe, how cosmic energy manifests in all living and nonliving things.

The existence is cosmic consciousness, which manifests as male energy, shiva, purusha, and female, shakti, prakruti. The union from these two energies forms the entire universe. From the Gunas (the three humors), sattva, rajas, and tamas, the five great elements are formed: ether, air, fire, water, and earth, from them, you get the tridoshas: vata (air and ether), pitta (fire and water), kapha (water and earth).

The five elements manifest in the five senses of man, they are related to hearing, touch, vision, taste, and smell. Ayurveda regards the human body and its sensory experience as manifestations of cosmic energy expressed in the five elements. Health is possible only when the doshas are working harmoniously together.

The eight pathways (Ashtanga yoga) are not attributed to a specific style of yoga, as all yogis follow the universal laws:

  • Yama - Social discipline
  • Niyama - Self-discipline
  • Asana - Posture
  • Pranayama - Breath control
  • Pratyahara - Inward direction of the senses
  • Dharana - Concentration
  • Dhyana - Meditation
  • Samadhi - Union with God

The practice of yoga corrects disorders in the body, helps maintain health, and increases mental and intellectual capacity and emotional balance. Therefore, yoga therapy is used in:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma and bronchitis
  • Back problems
  • Circulation and heart problems
  • Diabetes and obesity

Make a commitment before you come that you will not be judgmental or critical, either of yourself, anyone or anything. Knowledge is within you and this course is just a door for you to learn and experience. The teachers can stimulate, motivate, and inspire you but you also have to do the work.

Tenerife

Tenerife is of volcanic origin and the largest of the seven Canary Islands. It is located around 300 kilometers from the African coast and about 1,300 kilometers from the Spanish mainland. It has an area of 2,034 square kilometers with the gigantic Pico del Teide rising up in the center to 3,718 meters, making it the highest point of Spain.

Tenerife is known throughout the world as the island of eternal spring. The traditional architecture of the Canary Islands takes its inspiration mainly from the traditional architecture of Andalusia and Portugal although it also has a strong personality of its own.

Tejina

The small resort Tejina lies on the rocky coast in the northeast of Tenerife. It is surrounded by the foothills of the Anaga Mountains. The village and the surroundings are very rural and idyllic. The climate is extremely pleasant as temperatures do not sink below 17 degrees Celsius, even in winter.

A harvest festival is an important event and the people of Tejina have a rather unusual way to celebrate it. The festival is called ''The Hearts of Tejina'' and is held in August. Hearts are decorated with flowers, fruit, and cakes, and each heart is around 12 meters tall and weighs about 1,000 kilograms.

When the three main neighborhoods in the town bring out the hearts that they have been working on for a month, an entertaining ritual begins, in which each neighborhood mocks the others' hearts. The festivity dates back over a hundred years.
