  • Ram Das

    As a pro­fes­sion­al musi­cian, Ram­das dis­cov­ered yoga through music with­out even know­ing it, just by being touched by the sooth­ing pres­ence of his then music teacher. Due to reg­u­lar yoga prac­tice, so many changes occurred in his per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al life.
    Day by day, Ram­das dis­cov­ered anoth­er pos­si­ble world: peace­ful, sin­cere, full of life, col­ors and love. He then decid­ed to go deep­er and to take part in the Sam­poor­na Yoga Teacher Train­ing (200h) with Shri Yogi Hari dur­ing the sum­mer of 2013. More involved in his prac­tice than ever, he’s very much look­ing for­ward to share this grow­ing yoga pas­sion with every­one who cross­es his path.

In our stu­dio we teach you to per­form asana, and breathe, and con­nect to the spir­it with­in your­self. With full ded­i­ca­tion, patience and con­cen­tra­tion, of you Yoga prac­tice you be able to form a strength­ened and flex­i­ble body, with increased ener­gy lev­els. The increased sup­ply of oxy­gen and blood cir­cu­lat­ing through your body, and your recon­nec­tion of body, mind and soul can heal your pain; give you more pow­er, joy and true self-knowledge.

Relax­ation is an essen­tial part of approach. Instead of pro­duc­ing lac­tic acid and cor­ti­sol in your body, which fatigues the body and mind, our method is to cre­ate the effect of increased ener­gy and inner peace after the practice.

Through becom­ing One through the prac­tice of Yoga, we are able to expe­ri­ence inner har­mo­ny. This felt Peace is the light that will guide us in also in our pro­fes­sion­al, per­son­al life.

The phys­i­cal effect of Yoga Asanas (Pos­tures)

All yoga pos­tures with­out any excep­tion have ther­a­peu­tic effects. That is why this ancient dis­ci­pline existe since the first civil­i­sa­tion of human history.

Yoga is like a health-guard. It guides you to find your true Health (not illu­so­ry). By reg­u­lar prac­tice the body finds its own orig­i­nal source of ener­gy and it starts to flow in a very nat­ur­al way. Your body will be stronger and full of Prana (life ener­gy). Your metab­o­lism, hor­monal bal­ance, blood cir­cu­la­tion and gen­er­a­tion of cells are optimized.

Find inner Peace at Santidas Yoga, Brussels

Your prac­tice must be devo­tion­al, sin­cere­ly, earnest­ly and with­out Ego. If you prac­tice for a self­ish rea­sons, you will miss the tar­get. Yoga is an atti­tude a life phi­los­o­phy which can make our life hap­py, har­mo­nious and peace­ful. It is not a once off solu­tion to make you look pret­ty. You need to prac­tice reg­u­lar­ly and with full ded­i­ca­tion, not only in the stu­dio but everywhere.

A few min­utes of prac­tice and you will  feel the change. The more you prac­tice, the more you feel the phys­i­cal, men­tal and spir­i­tu­al improve­ment. It is as if you prac­tice your own, deep, psy­chother­a­py. The for­mer­ly cling­ing dis­ap­point­ments, pain, anger, fear and unsolved con­flicts, are being made con­scious, detached and resolved through a heal­ing process­es that comes through your practice.

Instead of focus­ing on neg­a­tive thoughts, dis­ci­ples of Yoga are being instruct­ed to recon­nect to their own divine being.

This is how we prac­tice Yoga. Based on the ancient scrip­tures and wis­dom and truth from the seek­ers, and what we have and are expe­ri­enc­ing in our search, we offer our guid­ance to those who seek the key to a ful­filled and peace­ful life.
