Mira Yoga: Among other things, mira means "ocean" in Sanskrit. The ocean is a vast, mysterious and powerful element in nature, and plays an integral part in the balance of the Earth. Yoga plays just as integral a role in balancing our life as the ocean does for our earth. Thus, was the name "Mira Yoga," conceived. Mira Yoga is not a 'style' of yoga, as all yoga comes from essentially one and the same place (though referred to by many names). Mira is merely the concept for which our perspective about yoga comes from: Yoga is a powerful, vast and essential aspect of life and when approached with lightness, respect, discipline and joy, can have profound effects on our day to day life.

The word "mira" is Sanskrit for "ocean," Latin for "wonder" and "astonishing." In the Slavic languages it means "peace." In Hebrew, it is a derivative or Miriam or the female equivalent of Meir, meaning "light." In Spanish, it is the imperative for "look!"

The teachings:
Hailing from a classical Hatha Yoga lineage, classes consist of warm-up exercises (sun salutations), breathing exercises (pranayama), yoga postures (asanas), and relaxation (savasana).




Yoga für Kinder in VillachYoga for Kids:


What is unique about Mira Yoga in Austria? Yoga classes are not only offered for adults, but also for children. Much has been written about the benefits of yoga for children, including a report by the "Mayo Clinic" which confirms that there have been many cases in which "yoga can calm children, reduce obesity, enhance concentration and help children manage certain health conditions, such as headaches and irritable bowel syndrome. Studies suggest that yoga may also benefit children who have various mental and physical disabilities. Yoga may even help children who have eating disorders lessen their preoccupation with food." (Mayo Clinic, 2012)

Through exercise, movement and play, your children gain balance, strength, flexibility, relaxation and improved concentration and memory power. Yoga can build self-confidence in children who may be shy or introverted, and can teach valuable tools about chanelling excess energy for children who are extroverted or have a lot of pent up energy or emotions.
