Yoga facts and tips


Let’s get in touch

What is Yoga?

Yoga is the science of activating your inner energies to such a vibrant and exuberant state that your body, mind and emotions function at their highest peaks.

The word ‘Yoga’ means ‘union’. Union means you begin to experience the universality of who you are.

For example, today, modern science proofs to you beyond any doubt that the whole existence is just one energy manifesting itself in various forms.

If this scientific fact becomes a living reality for you – that you begin to experience everything as one – than you are in Yoga. When you are in Yoga, you experience everything as a part of yourself.

That is liberation, that is mukti, that is ultimate freedom.

Caroline, South Africa

"I was very fortunate to be part of Giorgia's first ever intake. Their kindness and supportive manner and their gentle and thorough tuition, made Surya Kriya and Yogasanas memorable learning experiences. Quite literally not to be forgotten."

Alexis, South Africa

"I have recently completed my Surya Kriya and I can't believe the benefits it has given me, more energy I feel more balanced, my mind is a lot more at ease and generally better wellbeing, helping me cope with the day to day stresses."

Nitsa, South Africa

"I realized that the asanas given at the Classical Hatha Yoga workshop have been conducive in opening up the way to align my energy and awareness. My gratitude to Giorgia for this gift."

Satish, South Africa

"I have had the privilege and unique opportunity to have been taught the Yogasanas program by the most incredible Yoga teachers. The professionalism, support, dedication, patience, committment and guidance that was shown by the both teachers throughout the program made an intense and challenging program quite a flow for me...

Satish, South Africa

"...It's still recent that I have completed the Yogasanas Hatha Yoga program and by daily practice I am already amazed by the benefits that I have noticed in my mind, body and energy. I love the Yogasanas practice and excited about the changes that are still to come."

Laura, USA

"The experience of the yoga here is very different. It's something that you are feeling - electricity is happening! It's not just the posture, right foot here, left foot there. Experientially, something very different is happening. It's like the seed is put inside of you and it's turned into wild fire. But it's not really something you can touch with words. There is a beautiful complexity to what's happening to me."

Marie, France

"The symptoms of lupus, an auto-immune disease that results in severe joint inflammations and extreme tiredness, which have tormented me for ten years, disappeared as if by magic, telling me that there was much more to yield from this program."


"On the first day of practices, it felt as if energy pathways were becoming activated in my body. My body feels much more alive, as if it knows this is what it should feel like. It feels good."

Giulia, Italy

"Doing Surya Kriya lessons with Giorgia was so emotional. I felt like I was in another dimension. I never forget the atmosphere, the smells and her words. Giorgia is a unique teacher, you see that she loves what she does. Can't wait to attend other lessons with Gino and her."


"I was not all at all a yoga person. But a stay at the Isha Yoga Center has transformed me in many ways. Yoga just happened to me. I never knew I was this flexible and that I could mold into various asanas so comfortably as I am experiencing today. One thing that I have decided is that I will keep practicing yoga till my last breath."
