WHAT IS TALA YOGA?
Tala Yoga is a yoga system, in which the exercises are fluently performed in harmony with your breath and with music specifically composed for it. It came into being based on years of research into breath and movement. Its aim is to keep your breath as even as possible during your entire yoga practice, whether the movement is long or short and whether you are practising an easy or a difficult position. For breathing is the way to harmony and inner calm.
»I have only rarely managed to experience such a unity of breath, bodily movement and spiritual alertness in my practice.«
- Dagmar Heise, ashtanga-aachen.de
The concept of tala comes from Sanskrit and means ‘rhythm’ or ‘musical tempo’. In Indian music, a tala is the basic rhythmic pattern which forms the basis of every piece of music. As is true for every word in Sanskrit, tala has more than one meaning: tala is the essential nature or soul that is present in everything. It is the essence of the world, the basis and cause of all being.
»Precisely because Esh Loh is a yoga master, he manages to find a balance, to provide us listeners with exactly the right measure of wakeful tranquillity and calm zest which is so characteristic of this way.«
- Anna Trökes, prana-yogaschule.de
The special thing about the Tala Yoga exercise sequences is that they are systematic according to the principle "From the possible to the impossible" and, with regular practice, lead to more flexibility and serenity. The conscious and attentive hearing of breathing reduces stress and promotes the ability to concentrate. This makes Tala Yoga a holistic experience for body, mind and soul.

The music, also called yoga talas, is specially composed for breathing and yoga practice. The pulse of Yogatālas corresponds to the pace of the heart's natural resting pulse. It has been scientifically proven that this pace supports the promotion of the so-called theta waves in the brain. The vibrations of the theta waves are the basis for creativity, rest and relaxation, and promote the achievement of a meditative state.
