On articles about yoga & meditation. Joaquín G Weil. Blog hop--a series of writers answering questions about their writing.

Our fellow in yoga practice, Marta Moreno co-editor of COLLAGE magazine, an independent multilingual online publication, since 200, invited me to participate in a blog hop--a series of writers answering questions about their writing.

1) What am I working on/writing?
Currently, I am mostly writing articles about yoga and meditation. This is the link to my section in
And here’s a link to the English translation of one of my articles:

3) How does my work/writing differ from others of its genre?
Personally, I think that each writer has his or her own style. The scope for yoga and meditation articles in Spanish is not so big. In my case, I try to write from my personal experience, with insight and a sense of humour.

4) Why do I write what I do?
I mainly focus on either original topics or subjects with a universal and eternal quality - but approached from a fresh point of view.  What prompts me to write about a certain theme is finding it unusual or remarkable. With due respect, I try to shake up the reader, which is a way of shaking up myself.

5) How does my writing process work?

In general have three or four ideas for possible articles, with their title and subject topic. Every week I choose one of these topics and I write a first draft  in two or three hours. Then I leave it to rest and I revise it and modify it during the following two or three days. During this revision process I come up with new ideas for future articles. Sometimes, the ideas for my writing are born while teaching at our yoga and meditation centre.

"TIBETAN SOUND HEALING", CONFERENCE and SEMINAR in English translated to Spanish, Málaga, 9th - 11th of May, 2014

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

Five Warrior Seed Syllables with Tenzin Wangyal Rimpoche
Since ancient times meditative practices from a variety of spiritual traditions have used sound and its vibration as an essential tool for healing.

Through the singing and chanting of sacred syllables and mantras, spiritual practitioners, healers, and lay persons are able to purify and restore harmony to a range of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimensions. Guided by the mind and carried by the breath through subtle channels, the power of sound opens the potential to heal illness and dissolve energetic disturbances.
The Tibetan Bon Buddhist tradition is one of the oldest and still-unbroken lineages of wisdom to make use of sound for the well-being of its practitioners. The knowledge of how to sing and chant Tibetan syllables in order to activate their healing potential is contained in a number of Bon texts, including the revered Mother Tantra (Ma Gyud).
During these teachings, students learn the relationship between the sounds of particular Tibetan syllables and their healing qualities, and are guided in the practice of sound-healing meditations.
"Let it support you to become kind and strong and clear and awake.”.
       Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

Yoga Sala is a beautiful and peaceful place in the center of Malaga, and every Friday afternoon at 5pm we enjoy dancing together to the rhythms of the music and our bodies. 

Many times, bellydance has been seen as a seductive dance made for the men, but never far away from the truth. The roots of bellydance are from the ancient cultures 5000 years ago. It was a dance uses to help the women in labor and used during the rituals of the goddesses. The movements were created for the feminine body, to stimulate, relax and strengthen the muscles needed during labor, menstruation and to keep the women’s body healthy.  

Bellydance can help you during your pregnancy and birth, to regulate menstrual disequilibria or pain, relaxing you uterus, strengthening the muscles in your hips and pelvis, regulating your body posture and helping you connect with your lower body.

After the Málaga Fair break, MANTRA CHANTING sessions hosted by Be Pryce resume in Yogasala Málaga on Thursday September 5.

Mantra is a sanskrit word meaning 'to calm or protect the mind'. Mantras are words or phrases which are chanted repetitively and thus a vibration is created that modifies and improves our physical, mental, and emotional state. And the good news are that anyone, regardless of their musical or vocal knowledge, can chant this healing technique, because chanting mantras have nothing to do with singing in the right key. It is more about each of us creating our own vibration. You are all welcome.

Money contributions are voluntary.  Schedule: from 20:45 to 21:30

The session will be hosted by: 
Be Pryce, Singing Therapist, Gestalt Psychotherapist, Mantra Chanter.
