Dojo

Dojo is the place where a martial art is formally taught is called a dojo ( dojang, wat,  kwoon, heya), the term dojo is translated from the Sanskrit bodhi-manda  which is translated as "seat of wisdom". The  word dojo is itself  a Japanese term that literally means " place of the way" or " place of enlightenment".

Moksa Dojo is a space for yoga practice, martial art Aikido, meditation, music, Ikebana flower arrangement, culinary class, kids activity, special events, special dinner and community gathering.  

 

Hatha Yoga

Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

 

Yin yoga

A slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.

 

Vinyasa Yoga

Also sometimes called "Vinyasa Flow Yoga," this type of practice involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health.  The literal translation of the Sanskrit word "vinyasa" is "to place in a certain way."  It refers to a certain sequence of poses that are performed in a particular order.  Today, it also refers to the style of yoga that focuses on breathing in conjunction with body movement.

 

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga teaches us the importance of alignment and inspires us to use our intellect as we stretch in the Āsana/ posture. Through our practice we become more aware and present in the body. As our awareness penetrates deeper the body becomes balanced and energy can move more freely. The teaching of the technique is precise on how to get into the Āsana step by step, how to rotate, lift, press, stretch and extend the different parts of the body – the muscles,  bones, joints and skin. The practice of Āsanas gives us strength, flexibility and stamina. It brings balance to the inner organs and nervous system. On a deeper level, this will also affect us psychologically in a positive way and over time, also contribute to a spiritual development.

This class will be taught according to the level of the participant students of the day.

Iyengar yoga is a fun way to develop a healthy body and mind and at the same time we get to know ourselves better.

 

Sattva Yoga

Join us for a Sattva Yoga Journey, the Himalayan Tantric-Kundalini Kriya Yoga tradition created by Anand Mehrotra. These practices involve breath kriyas, mantra chanting, moving meditation, yoga asana with radical alignment, dance, freedom movement, laughter, and a safe space to release all energy blockages. This practice specifically works with the nervous system in preparing it for kundalini experiences and guides us to master our own shakti energy.  

Kriyas work to generate electricity by combining repetitive movements and mantras in a moving meditation. This movement of electricity helps to awaken and transform ones' energy to create a physical, psychological, and spiritual shift in one's being. Combined with Iyengar-Style radical alignment, suited for your personal body-type, this practice transforms the individual on every level. Whereas yoga asanas (postures) take a minimum of 30 minutes to create an energetic shift in consciousness, kriyas take only a few minutes, while strengthening the physical body and energetic body simultaneously.

Our facilitator empowers practitioners to heal themselves by creating a safe space for releasing trauma by encouraging the practitioner to deeply feel the experiences that arise. Sattva yoga is suitable for practitioners of any physical body type, age, ability, and health, as it works on our personal energetic environment, healing all blockages at the cellular level. Come laugh, cry, scream, dance, and transform while practicing yoga and connecting with other yogis.

 

Aikido

Aikido has been translated as The Way of unifying with life energy, The Art of peace, The Way of centering or Moving Zen. It is a martial art that is performed by blending into the motion of the opponent and redirecting the force of the attack. It is also one particular “Path of Truth” in the Buddhist sense. It is a warrior’s path, yet one which leads us to love our opponent, meeting hostility with peaceful reconciliation and bringing harmony into a hostile situation. Aikido strengthens inner power and deepens your connection with others.

 

Qigong

Qigong alternatively spelled chi gung or chi kung is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space.

 

Tai Chi

Tai chi (taiji), short for t'ai chi ch'üan (taijiquan; 太极拳), is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. The term taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions, and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of tàijíquán are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.

 

Capoeira

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art which combines fighting with performance art. It's a very recognizable style with its emphasis on acrobatics, attacks from the ground, feints, and spinning kicks, frequently all at the same time. Its usage dates back at least to the 18th century. Capoeira as practiced today stems primarily from two Mestres in the 20th century and their respective schools: Mestre Bimba, founder of the modernized Capoeira Regional in the 1930s, and Mestre Pastinha, founder of the more traditionalist Capoeira Angola that strove to keep closer to the art's roots.

Acarya Vibhakarananda Avadhuta "Dada Vibha" (Yoga & Meditation)

Dada Viba

Dada is an enlightened spiritual teacher inspired by the philosophy and teachings of Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, a Tantric Master, a philosopher, author, social reformer, humanitarian and spiritual leader. The basis of his teaching weaves continuity with the ancient spiritual science of Tantra.

Dada was searching for spiritual answers since childhood, and finally introduced to wholistic practices of yoga pose, meditation and Tantra and Rajadhiraja Yoga in 1993. In 1999, after several years working in the corporate world, Dada’s strong vision for spirituality led him to a major turning point in his life when he decided to leave his job and immerse himself fully in a devoted path of yoga. He went on to pursue training in India as a sannyasin, senior yoga monk. From then, he spent most of his time teaching yoga and meditation in Taiwan and Australia and eventually returned to his native island of Bali, bringing his devotional work home.

Tantra Yoga Meditation

Science of Tantra Yoga views that perennial happiness, or Ananda (bliss) is achieved by illuminating the spirit with the radiance of Divine Love within, which also permeated the whole creation, reconnecting the mind with that Supreme Spirit, the source of absolute peace. Tantra means, “science of self-transformation to expand the mind and liberate it from bondage of ignorance”. This wholistic practice was originated in India and perfected 7000 years ago by one of the greatest spiritual giant ever lived on this earth, Shiva, the embodiment of peace.

In this Tantra Yoga Meditation session, Dada will unveil powerful, practical teachings based on the ancient practice of Tantra, one’s expansive journey into perennial happiness. Tantra yoga meditation will create harmony as well as strength that invigorate the mind and soul with compassionate love and devotion. At the same time the power of concentration and the ability to control the thoughts and emotions will be awakened. He will also share practical insights for creating peace and harmony in our daily lives, leading a gentle transformation within and around us.

Somatic Awareness

The term Somatic derives from the ancient Greek means the living body in its wholeness. In Somatic Therapy we deepen our whole body awareness through dialogue, movements, and practices. This enables us shift old patterns that no longer serve us well and make choices towards the life we want to live. Understanding the body, mind, emotions and spirit as an integrated whole, or soma, is essential for our health and having a sense of meaning in our life. We teach clients the language of sensations, where they can more easily find presence, calling and change conditioning that is no longer useful.
