ABOUT US

Al Jalil Yoga is an Association for Social Promotion. It was born in 2012 with the aim of promoting the culture, philosophy and the techniques of YOGA and to provide a Yoga Shala, available for all the members in order to practice the Asanas and Meditation. The site can hold events for the promotion of holistic and spiritual disciplines from all over the world, for the creation of a bridge and a dialogue between the western and eastern philosophy, describing the latest scientific discoveries and the ancient holistic disciplines; a bridge between the same disciplines and any religious belief and different traditions, not with the aim of making profit but with the objective to organize events for not only the members, but of course for the local community as well.

Members can use the Shala anytime they want, not only during the courses or lessons, but also to meditate, pray or simply to relax.

Members can use the site of the association to organize meetings, seminars and courses related to the objectives and themes of the same association. The events can be for free or with a donation. They will be advertised and supported in the website, mailing list and social networks of the same association.

Members can read the certificate of incorporation and the statute of the Association on the board a tour site or below on this page.

The timetable for the courses is always available on our website in the page Courses, same thing for the Events.

Members can follow the activities on the website www.aljalilyoga.com or on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AlJalilYoga always updated.

  1. becoming daka: donating an offer or a regular or a casual economical contribution;

For four years she has been in retreat in the ancient quarter of Matera, the Sassi. Her aim was to live according to the Yoga style, in complete ascetism, in total isolation and dedicating herself to meditation and the development of the siddhi (mental capacities which can be acquired through meditation). Since 2011 she has been living the state of ‘Awakened’. Since 2012, she has been president of the Yoga and Meditation Research Centre “Al Jalil Yoga”, in Matera, and she teaches courses and seminars about quantum physics and Yoga. In her teaching, she combines the theoretical knowledge of the Yoga with the scientific competences.

Elena ZervopoulouMeditazione
Ciao a tutti. Sono Elena, francese e greca, regista e produttrice di film documentari sociali che giro in posti remoti del mondo per dare voce ai più vulnerabili. Miei film poi viaggiano al loro turno in televisioni, festival e sale cinematografiche internazionali. Vengo da una formazione e pratica a Parigi di etno-psicologa per bambini e famiglie di immigrati. Poi ho collaborato con l’Unesco per l’inserzione socio-educativa di bambini di strada a Madagascar. Amo la saggezza della natura che trascende tutto, le syncronicità, le interconnettività, le esperienze transcendenti, e in quel flusso, mi arricchisco di percorsi olistici, bioenergetici, meditativi, artistici e tutto ciò che po migliorare la vita di/su questo pianeta.
Ultimamente ho iniziato con Maestra Rosalia il corso per diventare insegnati di yoga. Come volontaria a Al Jalil Yoga, mi occuperò di meditazione di mattina, i lunedì alle 10.30. Con gioia vi invito a trovare il vostro spazio interiore e a sentire le vibrazioni di alta frequenza che ci uniscono, rivelandoci la consapevolezza di essere interconnessi con tutto ciò che ci circonda. A partire da Novembre mi occuperò anche di yoga per il risveglio delle energie femminili e delle Feste della LUNA durante le lune piene!!! Spero di conoscervi presto! Un abbraccio

Behavior and good manners in the Yoga Shala

A Yoga Shala is a clean room, isolated and silent in which we practice Yoga. It is not a gym, but a place of retreat and meditation where you can find peace, silence and harmony. It is a sacred place like a church or a temple and it must be fully respected.

It is a place charged energetically. The same Guru charges it with her prayers, with her meditations and vibrations of her consciousness. It is important to keep, inside it and in the close by outer space, a respectful and spiritual behavior. It is compulsory to turn off your cellphones or put them in flight mode and not simply silence them, in order to allow everyone to clean themselves from the influence of electronical waves, interfering constantly with our body and thoughts. It is necessary to keep the silence and avoid discussions about job problems, family issues, economic issues, avoid comments and gossip about absent people. The Shala is a place to distance yourself from the external world, where you can find peace and serenity and allow yourself to rest and regenerate not only your body, but mostly your mind and the emotional body.

All the equipment is available for the members and they must be placed in the place and in the same conditions you found them. The plastic bricks and belts must be placed close to the mat, the blankets must be folded for the members practicing after your turn, remembering that the Teacher or Guru is not the one responsible for cleaning. Moreover, for a Karmic law, all the actions come back with the same energy we used to act in the first place. Our behavior in the Shala must be seen as a Karma Yoga: harmony, politeness, order and grace are something we try to learn in the Shala and to bring outside in the society, in the world and in our daily life.
