YOGA LOKAH - yoga studio in Brno
Yoga Lokah studio is place. Physical, mental and also virtual. It is place for practice of yoga not only on your mat, but in every day life and situations. Situations which work as mirror, teaches us to know ourselves thanks to different practices and forms of yoga. There are many forms and journeys and each and one of us is unique. There is but one goal. And that is selfrealization, limitless and endless state of joy. State, where our mind stops being as stormy sea and becomes calm, as lake after the strong wind calmed down.
The word YOGA means in Sanskrit UNION. Union of our small self with the endless Universe. This is not sufficient to know on intelectual level, but it is important to experience this state and yoga offers practices how to experience this state. If we talk about asana - poses practices, ahimsa-nonharming practices and compassion with all beings, meditation, chanting mantras, Karma service - unconditional service without the thoughts of acknowledge. Just for the good feeling of it. These practices prepare us, or they remind us, our body, mind and soul to experience the final state - Samadhi.
Our mission in Yoga Lokah is to create place for all, without differences of origin, faith and religion, place for sharing information, for teaching and discovering, for creating the feel of community. In Sanskrit language there is term SATSANG - true and virtuous company, place where averyone can be themsleves. In english there is sayin....You are company you keep
sat-sangatve nissangatvam nissangatve nirmohatvam nirmohatve nishchala-tattwam nischala-tattwe jivanmuktih bhaja govindam bhaja govindam bhaja govindam mudha-mate
Interpretation by Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati: Good and viruous company gives rise to non-attachment. From non-attachment comes freedom from delusion. With freedom from delusion, one feels the changeless reality. Experiencing that changeless reality, one attains liberation in this life. I-AM is the ocean of awareness. Realizing this, one feels,"I am not the body and mind, although I have body and mind." Realize Govinda, Realize Govinda, Realize Govinda in your heart, O wise one!
Interpretaion by Jules-ji Febre(nephew of David Life, co-founder of Jivamukti Yoga Method): Much of our time is spent in a virtual world of computers, phones and many other automated transactions. We are always choosing how to spend our time, which shapes our lives. The power of coming together, of sharing ideas, insights and practicing asana lends one to become more receptive. As we undertake this journey, we may do so together and thus together we come to realize the vastness of our existence.

Project history - HERstory
Yoga Lokah sprouts from the desire to share yoga with those who are interested. This seed was planted thanks to all teachers who influenced my shaping, my forming, coming to know myself, my perceving of the world by teaching by their own example. My greatest gratitude belongs to Sharon Gannon and David Life - co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga Method, who put me on my yoga journey and showed me where my roots in yoga and life are. This style of yoga is taught through spiritual activism. My other teachers were and are up till present moment all beings who I met in my life in different stages and gave me oportunity to learn about myself.
Also great thank you goes to all good souls who are part of the realization of this project of mine, without whome this will never become to be, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
