Tapas are the third of the niyama (personal observances) from
Ashtanga Yoga (Eight Limbs Yoga) in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
Tapas is based on the Sanskrit root word Tap (तप्) meaning "to heat, to give out warmth, to shine, to burn".
Tapas has been variously translated from Sanskrit into English as heat, austerities, discipline and internal fire.
These translations give meaning that ignites a inner fire inside your heart to burn out the obstacles we encounter in the journey of yoga practice or in our own life.
The Yoga Sutras also explain that through tapas, mental impurities are eliminated and the union of the body, mind and soul can be achieved.
"Life without tapas is like a heart without love.” – BKS Iyengar
We believe keeping an inner fire, not just motivate and discipline us from achieving our life goal, but also give out warmth and love to the people around us and the one we care.
In a busy life, Hong Kong people work long hours everday and are accustomed to multi-tasking. They handle
several things at the same time and the rhythm of life is fast. They carry heavy work pressure every day
when they go to and from work. They always thinks about the "past" and "future", and often ignore the moment
From the structure of the word, the word "念" is formed by the combination of "今" (which means now) and "心" (which means mind). And we founded TAPAS YOGA STUDIO (一念瑜伽), not to train students to do seemingly difficult and difficult movements, but to hope that through the breathing method and practice of yoga, they can practice without confusion and cooperate in breathing and movement let's bring the mind to "the moment". Over time, I hope that they can practice and master "一念" from TAPAS YOGA STUDIO (一念瑜伽), extend "一念" from the practice on the yoga mat to their lives, and live well in the present.
