The “Journey of The Twisted Body and Twisted Mind” continue it’s search for a place to twist. Sad to say but glad to realised, life still goes on and it is great after all. Errr… not really great but then I can make do with anything I had.

I’ve been asking for rates and looking for a suitable place to practice and finally, attended a trial class in Yoga Franchise, Klang. I mentioned to Nava that I was formerly practicing from Yogazone and he instantly snapped. Ya, ya, heard that bla bla bla bla! Seems like the whole world has heard about YZ crisis. Yoga Franchise offer traditional yoga. The flow is so much different from Yogazone as Nava claimed that Yogazone has modified it to make them more commercialized to the public. I know nuts about that so no comment from me.

I find traditional Yoga a bit slow and maybe too relaxing. I am trying to get used to it especially having a total of 6 savasanas (or maybe more cos I gave up counting them!) in between asana. That is way too relaxing and we was practicing in a air-conditioning room. I hardly even perspire. End of the 60 minutes class, he drew out this on the white board.

Disciple #1 to be practice everyday for at least 10 minutes everyday – While he was briefing on Shatkarmas, I kept looking at the clock hanging above him. *yawn*

Disciple #2 is my favourite practice (15 minutes everyday) – Now, this is what I finally understood after attending Yoga classes for a year plus. The sequence of practising asanas!

  • 2 sets of Sun salutation
  • Backbend
  • Forwardbend
  • Twisting
  • Inverted

It snapped me hard after reading disciple #2. No wonder we always do headstand lastly. He explained the reason behind it but all the teaching goes in one ear and out another ear. *blushing*

Disciple #3 & #4 – I started to drift into dreamland again. The only thing I remember is the prana as I adhered to it. Never drink/bath/eat right after class. You will lost all your prana.

After explaining all that, the other yogis was seen jotting the 4 disciples on papers and some was using their PDA. I took out my faithful camera and take a shot. Everyone was amazed including Nava! Aiyah talking about bloggers. Tehehe. We don’t part with our camera. Next thing I know, everyone follow suit and started taking picture using their mobile phone instead of jotting them down on paper. Class dismissed earlier than way too 😉 .

Haha, that’s the reason I bought smaller camera to bring it around.
Anyway, I don’t like traditional Yoga because the pace is really too slow, I prefer something moderate, like Hatha Flow or something 🙂

Hi jess, if you prefer the type of yoga taught by ex-yogazone’s teachers, u may try this Les Yoga Studio at Taman Rashna, klang. I understand that currently there are 2 teachers from yogazone teaching there, u will be surprised to find out who they are anyway. Les studio charging RM99 per month, 3 days a week, all evening classes. No deposit required and can stop anytime if you don’t like. U may contact Les at 012-3359182. i will be joining the class next month as this month is pretty busy. Hope this is an alternative for u…

YogaJess says: Thanks Molly. I just called them. He said they are going to move to Taman Megah, PJ. Not confirmed yet and currently they stop taking in new students. Well, at least they are honest. Not like some people…..

Hi Yoga Jess
I was told by Amit Arya, a very famous yogis from India, who taught me a few lessons in YC Cheras Plaza few months ago,that authentic Hatha Yoga should be relaxing hence savasana after every pose is a must. I dare not to count but I think it was more than 20 times during the 1 1/2 hrs Hatha 2 class.

Wow – they didn’t accept your money coz’ they’re moving? That’s AMAZING! I’d join them if they’re near my office – no, not becoz I like relaxing classes and 20 savasanas in each class but becoz I know they would be honest! Thanks for sharing.

Dear all,

Hari Om,
May I recommand one yoga teacher Ms Parul, she teaches yoga for years in Bangsar and Pantai. Her email [email protected] . She also has classes VEDANTA ( art of living- yoga philosophy) is taught by another Guruji Sri Vijay from India. You get to understand more on life and living in a better way.
Good day to all!
