Relationship Tips from a Yoga Master #1

In recent times we have been hearing of people or couples (celebrities or common man) falling to prey to failed relationships. The latest in this saga is Tiger Woods who was hammered by his wife with a golf iron and later being admitted to the hospital. You may even encounter someone within your family who has undergone or is undergoing a failed relationship.
Most relationships which fail will go through a legal process called divorce or separation. This causes hardship for both couples as well as their children (if any) or their close relations (like parents).
In an effort to stamp this growing trend of failed relationships without becoming a slave to it, we have designed a program to help couples harness their potential within and live peacefully.
In this 10 day program, we design steps to help you get out of the rut and back to action. Please look out for this blog in the upcoming days to seek help.
Good day see you again tmr.

Sutra Neti (Nasal Cleansing)

Sutra Neti demonstration by Master Paalu Ramasamy from Tirisula Yoga during a 200 Hr Yoga Teacher Training Course in Singapore. Sutra means thread and Neti means nasal cleansing. Neti is one of the six purification techniques known as Shat Kriya as documented in the literature, Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Neti helps to clean the nasal passage ways, removing excess mucus and stimulate the nerves to make the brain more alert.
Do not practice this on your own without guidance from a Yoga teacher.

Our very own Yoga Retreat Resort in Malaysia

I just came back from Johor, Iskandar, about 10 min from Tuas Checkpoint. Leisure farm is the place where our resort is going to be. I simply fell in love with that place and knew that our Yoga Retreat resort will be there. True enough, for realization, future thoughts (dreams or plans, however you want to call it) must become the present thought for things to be materialized. We bought a piece of land and are currently making plans to design and build it — Balinese style.
Leisure farm is so organized and clean – very Singaporean, that’s way we see so many Singapore cars there and we were told majority of the buyers are from Singapore. Smart choice. How long do you need to save up to buy a bungalow in Singapore? Probably in Johor, you need less than half the price.
It is so quiet, peaceful and tranquil, ideal location for Yoga retreats. In about 1 year’s time, we need not organize Yoga retreats in Bali after our Balinese resort is built.
By then, we would have many retreats within a year, as it is just a stone’s throw away from Singapore! Our very own Bali Villa in Johor.

About Mysore's environment

Hi all,
I just came back from Mysore, India where I’ve stayed there for a month. It is a small ‘city’, well, it’s not like a urban city with tall and glassy buildings you would have imagine if you have not gone to India.
The thing that struck me is that in urban cities, where we are trying to save the environment by reduce, reuse and recycle, but ironically, we are contributing to a lot of trashes consciously and subconsciously. We use disposable wooden chopsticks, plastic spoons and forks, styrofoam boxes for takeaways, plastic boxes for soups, etc. Talk about reducing waste. In India, just the banana leaf is disposed off, which is organic and bio-degradable. No cutlery required as we use hands to eat.
The climate in Mysore is wonderful (in Dec). It is slightly cold in the early mornings and late evenings, but during the day, it is dry and not too hot. The quality of air is quite good at places with green trees. Although in places like the bus stand, Deveraja market area is quite polluted.
Mysore could be much better off if there is a device which can convert or reduce the smelly fumes emited by the rickshaws (like tuk-tuks in Thailand).
Without the air pollution by the traffic, I thought there is a higher oxygen content there. 2 examples to proof my point:
1) The matchstick stays lighted for a longer time
2) I feel much more energetic and lighter practicing the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary series there compared to in Singapore.
Or have I put on weight after eating too much of high carbohydrates Indian food?
