Yoga - for body and soul

Every windsurfer or kiteboarder knows this: Wanting more, but the body just says No! “Core stability”, “Stetching” & "Centering" are used regularly in Yoga. Being warmed up and well prepared increases our time on the water!

MARKUS DUSS
Instructor for HATHA-Yoga, 5 Tibeter and LU JONG (Tibetan Healing Movements)

Born 1958 in Luzern, Markus suffered a severe polio infection at the age of two years with the result of a handicapped right leg.  At the age of 38 his doctors suggested to have a major back surgery. Markus decided to look instead for alternatives to solve his problem. This lead him first to the five tibetans and later he heard from a friend about Lu Jong (Tibetan Healing Movements). During a journey to North India he met a Lu Jong teacher (Tulku Lama Lobsang) who introduced him to the tibetan healing movements and certified Markus in teaching LU JONG 1 and 2. When he moved to Boracay in 2000 he immediately started with yoga classes and after a few years of practice, he joined a  teacher training with Clayton Horton from Greenpath Yoga in 2009 and became a teacher for Hatha-Yoga.   


Hatha Yoga for beginner and intermediate

„Ha“ means sun and represents the vital prana and „Tha“ means moon and represents the mind and the lunar qualities.The main object of hatha yoga is to create an absolute balance of the interacting activities and processes of the physical body, mind and energy (Prana). When this balance is created, the central force (Sushumna nadi) will push impulses upwards and evoluate consciousness. As more as you are aware of your own body, you will be able to overcome stress and cure various negative conditions such as stiff shoulder, back ache, head ache, insomnia, stomach problem, autonomic ataxia, menopause, etc. Your mental and physical well-being can improve your quality of life. Hatha yoga class is conducted according to the student's experience level and health conditions, so that anyone can attend the class. Even those who have stiff bodies or who have never done yoga but want to practice step by step. We take time to hold each posture, practice deep breathing and motion exercises without over exerting the body.

The 5 Tibetean are the best way to keep in shape, even if you have not enough time left to visit regular classes or the next fitness studio isn't near by. After only a short time of practice you will be able to do the whole serie in only 15min. All you need is the space on the floor according to your body lenght with extended arms. To be warmed up before every kitesurf or windsurf session the 5 Tibetans are the fastest and most effecient movements.
