Wednesday 1hr15 classes and Meditation special class!

Hi everyone,

As we decided in last Wednesday's class, from now on Wednesday classes will be 1 hour and 15 minutes, so from 6:15 to 7:30. This should allow us to do a few more poses per class and most importantly to have a nice long savasana (resting pose) after our asanas (physical poses).

In addition, next Wednesday February 4th, there will be an optional meditation session after the asanas. For those who wish to learn more about meditation and give it a try, I'll provide a brief introduction to meditation - what it is, why people practice it, what are some of the techniques - and then people will have the opportunity to try a 10 minute session using one of several techniques. We'll try to wrap up our asana practice a bit early, so I expect the meditation session to run until about 7:45.

If you want to participate, you may want to bring some of the following:
- A tais, blanket or pillow to sit on if you find it uncomfortable to sit on the floor;
- An eye mask or blindfold to help you keep your eyes closed;
- A light shirt to keep your body temperature constant as you cool down after your asanas.

If you have any questions feel free to post a comment here!

Hi there,
I'm an Occupational Therapist in Darwin, Australia. I'm looking for a Private Yoga Instructor in Dili that I can link up with a patient of mine for personal yoga. It is for injury prevention management purposes that will be funded by an insurance company.
Please email me at if you can possibly help with this query.
