My name is Andy Aungthwin. The first part of my last name (Aung) is as Burmese as it gets. I was born in Yangon, Myanmar but grew up an “Aussie” in Melbourne and now living in Slovenia! Yes, long story.
Some 20+ years ago I practiced yoga back in Australia but in 2001 I stopped.
In 2018 I started again, firstly with basic Hatha Yoga asanas but my body was completely rigid. But slowly it started to become more flexible. I then completed a program called Inner Engineering and was initiated into Shambhavi Mahamudra kriya. Please visit the Isha website for more details.
In 2019 I completed Surya Kriya, Angamardana, Yogasanas and Bhuta Shuddhi which are all Isha programs (Isha yoga practices are essentially Hatha yoga but some movements are different). Correction programs as well as Jala Neti have also been completed. Full details can be found at Isha.
In April 2019 I finished a one month Hatha yoga teacher training program in Rishikesh, India.
My daily yoga routine is made up of some or all of the following:
Up between 3:40-5:00am
- Bhuta Shuddhi
- Upa Yoga
- Surya Kriya
- Shambhavi Mahamudra
During the day
- Easy stretches before bed
There are literally hundreds and thousands of yoga instructors around the world, so what is that I offer that they don’t?
Firstly, I live in a most beautiful and unique part of the world called Bohinj. This is already enough incentive for you to come.
Secondly our home – Rustic House 13, is a favourite place for those who are looking for a boutique style accommodation set in quiet surroundings. Perfect place to relax and recharge your tired bodies.
Most importantly, I have plenty of real life experiences to know of the struggles to find well being. I am also very careful in my explantations so that you avoid any possible injuries. It is quite frequent that minor injuries do occur when asanas are not properly demonstrated and practiced.
Yoga is not a set of stretching exercises. It is a path. I will show you this path or at least share with you the path that I am on. This path has been set by my teachers, their gurus before them, and going back – 15,000 years. All the way to Shiva, the Adiyogi or the first yogi.
It is my wish and the blessings of my teachers that you come and join with me – in yoga!
