Holiztik Healing through Yoga


Yoga is quite a popular practice that has become widely available today. However there really is more to yoga than simply an hour of a workout.

I am extremely passionate about yoga having been practicing for 9 years, I have come to acquire the knowledge in identifying Yoga for what it really is versus just another workout.
I am pleased to support the few professionals within the industry and would love to share the knowledge with you.

Yoga is a spiritual, physical and mindful practice, these elements are combined together through the power of breath, balance & focus. Yoga consists of ‘Yama’ which are restrictions / rules of behavior in order to enable harmony. ‘Niyama’ consists of rules of behavior which enable balance. ‘Asana’ are the actual postures. ‘Pranayama’ is a yogic technique for rhythmic breathing. ‘Pratyahara’ which is the withdrawal of attention within oneself – remaining centered. ‘Dharana’ is concentration. ‘Dhyana’ is meditation. Ultimately we have ‘ Samadhi’ which is the stage of realization of the essential self.
Without going into to much detail ( attend the upcoming workshop to learn more) I just wanted to give you an idea about the true depths which create Yoga, and how it really is essential to explore all such elements within a Yoga practice.

Yoga is a way of life, once you have been enlightened by the many benefits it brings to you spiritually, emotionally, mentally & physically it would be difficult to take a step back.

Being so passionate for what I practice, I was invited to attend a phenomenal ‘Chakra Immersion’ Workshop this past weekend. Holiztik is founded by a lovely couple who have dedicated their lives to giving to others. Living and teaching in Thailand, Elvin and Timothy travel the world to educate and heal the souls of many. Their love for Yoga is expressed through their outstanding workshops which combine a combination of theoretical aspects, practical experiences as well as deep meditation.
I was impressed by the professionalism and passion these two expressed throughout the day, I was enlightened with knowledge I will carry throughout my lifetime.

If you are so passionate about Yoga just like me, or if you are new to the idea of Yoga and keen on exploring.. this workshop is for you !

Elvin & Timothy will be conducting their final workshop for this season this upcoming weekend.. This time they will discuss ‘Self Healing with Yoga’ which will compromise the core Hatha Yoga practice for perfect health.

From a simple flu to more serious health issues like asthma, digestive problems, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, infertility, cardiovascular diseases, or even cancer… Yoga has answers.
Find out these answers this Friday, January 31st & Saturday, February 1st 2014.

P.S – If you don’t want to worry about transportation, Holiztik has teamed up with Uber to offer rides to their workshops. With the Uber service, you will get picked up in a luxurious car, so you can just relax and stay in the bliss of the yoga weekend.

A Fusion you can’t miss.. Yogalates Bliss


I’ve always been dedicated to the practice of yoga, due to it’s many health & spiritual benefits. In an hour of yoga you can target key muscles, joints, organ functions as well as learn about the discipline of silencing the mind allowing it to focus and remain calm. The combination of bodily postures & mental well-being is completed through a spiritual peacefulness which yoga brings.
Pilates has also always been a favorite, where the focal point of the class is to strengthen your core / spine.. in order to achieve lean beautiful muscles.

Yoga is an ancient Eastern practice that harnesses the power of the mind, body and spirit, with meditating, relaxing and flexibility being the main focus. In practicing Yoga, you move from one pose to another, enhancing strength, stamina, flexibility, balance and mental clarity. Through developing a conscious awareness of the body, mind, breath and life force (prana), Yoga has the ability to be deeply relaxing and health enhancing.

Pilates, on the other hand, was invented by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s as a way to build strength in the postural muscles and prevent injury.  In a Pilates class, strengthening the core is the main objective. Each pose is combined with movements of the limbs, improving spinal flexibility, posture and alignment. Pilates is known globally as a system of muscular skeletal exercises that augment sporting activities, assist in injury rehabilitation and supports those with back problems through re-educating the body’s postural muscles to create a very safe and strong foundation for movement.

Now think about the fusion of these two.. Yogalates Bliss comes in offering a middle ground, combining the best of both worlds by fusing principles of core stability with the foundation of Yoga Therapy. It infuses a meditative aspect that is the core of yoga class but not present in Pilates class, yet concentrates on strengthening the core as in Pilates class. Yogalates, fuses the best of both worlds.. where you can achieve the benefits of a yoga practice as well as the conditioning from a Pilates class in one go !

Beginning your day or ending your day with this restorative and revitalizing practice is definitely something to consider. In a soothing ambiance, on a relaxed rooftop amidst the beautiful Dubai city skyline, you are at a complete state of zen when the steady silent sky is closer to you than the city’s hustle & bustle.
