Hatha Yoga: Online classes
Yoga is an ancient philosophy that originated from India, but its practice has continued to evolve and shape over time. Today, yoga practice is popularized through the system of Hatha Yoga exercises.
Hatha Yoga deals with body, mind and prana (vital energy), and serves to better connect ourselves with what we really are, and that is pure energy and love.
Hatha yoga is a set of asanas (postures), pranayamas (breathing exercises) and yoga nidra (meditation). A set of asanas, breathing techniques and meditative techniques have a beneficial effect on the central nervous system and general health of the body because they calm the mind, enlighten mental patterns and clear our accumulated emotions and energy blockages, so that life patterns change gradually and gently with awareness and self-acceptance.
The origin of the name Hatha comes from two words “Ha” meaning the Sun, and “Ta” meaning the Moon. Hatha brings a balance of solar and lunar energy within us. It balances and optimizes the condition of all systems in our body, and places special emphasis on balancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, which results in the optimal work of hormones in the body that regulate the work of our organs.
Hatha yoga benefits practitioners by:
During the online classes of Hatha yoga, you can expect the awakening and cleansing of all aspects of your being. Transformation comes from within, changes take place on a deeper level, through the body, and thus the traps of the conscious mind are bypassed. The body always supports us and our new mental patterns.
With yoga positions, we influence the patterns in our subconscious mind and get to know our hidden potentials better. We connect and communicate with our body as well as become more aware and present. By practicing yoga, the mind becomes more flexible, thoughts clearer and words more measured. We are changing on a deeper level and creating a better and healthier reality, for ourselves and our environment.
Yoga represents a natural path we walk, its results develop gently and gradually. Through yoga, steps are patiently built. In addition to trust, self-confidence is strengthened; willpower, discipline, love and a sense of faith are developed, which are an inexhaustible source of strength for all living beings.
Yoga asanas in combination with breathing techniques open our hearts, so we learn that every movement should be performed with a lot of tenderness and focused attention. We also develop our inner sense of freedom by performing meditative techniques. At a deeper level, Hatha Yoga is a discipline for self-study and self-realization.
Take a look at what our previous members,
have said about Hatha Yoga exercises:
With Željka, I started working on myself through Reiki treatments and later yoga classes.
“The biggest blessing that yoga has brought me is my husband Miloš! I met a wonderful man at a yoga class. With Željka, I did hypnotherapy, Reiki treatments, transformation techniques, massage, and MamaYoga classes for pregnant women.”
Sanja Tomić, Serbian language teacher
I have been practicing yoga online for almost 2 years!
“I practiced Hatha Yoga on-site with Željka, the training is great, I like the part when we do meditation and relaxation. I switched to online mode 2 years ago. I like watching the video outside of the regular class time.”
I started from the initial Hatha group, yoga is therapy for me!
“I had a lot of health problems, I came to yoga because of a herniated disc, and I also had problems with my heart. Željka often had corrections for me, I used to skip exercises, but after a year, I could do the whole lesson. Now I practice the intermediate level without any problems.”
Biljana Tričković, senior citizen
My friend and I areEight graders!
I’ve been training with Željka for 8 years! The friend I go to yoga with has also been a regular for eight years. While at the class, we joke with Željka that we are her “Eight graders”. I started yoga at the age of 52. It’s never too late, but I wish I had decided to exercise earlier.”
Zorica Arsić, 60, payroll clerk
I came to my first yoga class 8 years ago. I had an injured hip and osteoporosis!
“When my friend suggested I go to yoga, I was skeptical, but after the doctor recommended exercise to solve the problem of osteoporosis, I decided to try it. I’ve been a regular for 8 years!”
Vanja Ristovska, 8 years of practice, payroll clerk
When it got stressful at work, I found my valve!
“I heard good recommendations for Željka, but I never found time to attend classes. When the tension at work became unbearable, I decided to do something for myself. It’s the best New Year’s gift I bought for myself!”
Snezana Dobromirović, economist
Yoga helps me overcome health challenges and be mentally strong!
“I started practicing yoga with Željka when I was a student coming home from Belgrade, I tried a couple of instructors there, but I never managed to connect with them as I did with Željka. I like her way of showing the exercises and always giving variations adapted to my health condition.”
Svetlana Nikolić, Professor of the Romanian language
With yoga, I recovered both physically and emotionally!
“Yoga has brought me a lot of health improvements. My knee stopped hurting, and the doctors predicted surgery. When my husband passed away, coming to yoga classes gave me the strength to deal with the grief and move on with life. Now I enjoy being with my granddaughter, sometimes we come to Željka’s class together.”
