What is Yoga?

Yoga is a 5,000+ year old system from ancient India used to enhance the quality on one's life by increasing flexibity, core muscle strength, and awareness by releasing long held stress and tensions kept in the body, nervous system, and mind.  It is also so much more than this, as I've realized to my astonishment over the years since starting in January 2000.

I teach Hatha yoga postures blended with meditation and pranayama (yogic breathing), here in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Yoga taught in this manner enhances the benefits of this wonderful ancient practice, it allows one to go deeper into oneself in a relaxed manner, to feel more centered and at ease.  I have 21+ years of practice and teaching experience, and I have seen this transform myself and many people when practiced consistently.  Every year more and more scientific research confirms the major benefits of combining yoga with meditation. 

One of my students told me this years ago, perhaps it will inspire you: "The other day I went to lunch with my friends and they said I looked so beautiful.  They wondered what I had done.  Then I remembered that I had just taken your yoga class Marcello and I told them about it.  I plan to do yoga more consistently from now on!  Thank you."

Here's how I first realized the amazing benefits of yoga: When I first started playing squash in 1999 I gave myself a personal challenge: to get good enough to beat the instructors.  One day I finally beat one of them.  I felt great.  The teacher was stunned, and somewhat furious.  But the next time I played the same teacher I was trounced.  This time I was the one who was stupefied.  What happened?  Then I realized that the previous time when I was in the ZONE playing perfectly, I had taken my first ever yoga class just before the match.  I connected the dots and immediately understood the incredible potential of yoga.  I have since discovered yoga and meditation help with many aspects of our lives, not just with sports.
