Zen Essence Yoga

“I whole-heartedly recommend Aniko – she is in a class of her own.”

Zen Essence Yoga draws from the knowledge and wisdom of numerous disciplines and cultures, including that of modern western science to create a common ground. Its aim is to teach the fundamental principles of energy of movement that form the foundation of our daily lives.  

It comprises of a system of interaction and communication. This follows integration of the major paths of self-development and realisation.

Traditionally, these paths are known as:

  • Jnana Yoga – the yoga of philosophy
  • Bhakti Yoga – devotional yoga through faith
  • Raja Yoga – control of mind fluctuations e.g. Zen
  • Hatha Yoga – the discipline of mental & physical control
  • Kriya Yoga – the yoga of chanting & worship
  • Karma Yoga – the yoga of service to others

Through the promotion of this interactivity we can explore and connect with our essential self.

The work involves a series of various exercises and movement experiences such as:

  • Meditative breathing and visualisation that discharges excess energy and improves concentration, sensitivity, body co-ordination and stamina.
  • Re-education of the nervous system and development of life-force energy in the body.
  • Learning exercises, which correct physiological/psychological imbalances and re-align the body.
  • Analysing the source or motive of movement and its expression in daily communication.
  • Diagnosis and re-balancing of the human aura.
  • Exercises for re-balancing the chakras.
  • Healing using sound (breathing vibrations, voice harmonics).
  • Understanding and interacting with the natural laws of movement (gravity, geometry oppositional forces) which are at the foundation of our crystal body
  • Applying these laws and Principles to daily life

Dr Ketan Desai recently ended his speech by extolling the virtues of yoga, a parasympathetic mode of life style. With the expense of medical care rising and the need for preventive medicine, yoga is a proven way to prevent illness and preserve health. It is totally non-invasive, gentle and soothing and is cost effective. And since last year the United Nations has adopted 21st June as the International Yoga Day.
