.. the principle of yogic Science ...

Look deep into Nature and you will understand your Self
When we live in alignment with our Inner Nature, which is our true Self, we live in alignment with Mother Earth and each other and we are creating a culture based on respect, support and sustainability, harmony, peace and love. We realize that we are not only creating our own life, but influence Mother Earth and the lives of other Beings with each thought and action we take.
We all know, that this high conscious awareness and way of living has to manifest again to save and retain our Outer Nature and to fulfill our Inner Nature’s unique purpose.
And here we are!
Goal of our Ethno Yoga Program is to raise the awareness and vibration into JOY, PEACE AND HAPPINESS in sharing valuable knowledge and practices, inspiring and motivating in living a sustainable life and supporting and creating meaningful authentic projects.
And for achieving this goal we combine Ethnology and Yoga!
Why … because both are about LIFE itself and they show ways on how to live with life, in alignment with our Inner and Outer Nature.
The Power of YOGA and ETHNOLOGY
YOGA is about Life itself and it shows us how to live with Life, means how to live in union with our Inner and Outer Nature. Practicing YOGA in the ancient tradition means not only the physical practice on the mat yet a whole system which combines body movement and postures asanas, breathing methods pranayama, meditation, positive thinking and a vegetarian/vegan nutrition and a joy- and peaceful sustainable way of living. Practicing YOGA in its wholeness and implementing it in your everyday life cleanses your whole system, means your body and mind and opens up your heart thought, so that you can realize the true essence of life and nature and LIVE your true and full Potential.
ETHNOLOGY or Cultural- and Social Anthropology
ETHNOLOGY is the study of human life with all its creations and its expressions.
From ancient traditional wisdom and medicine systems, small indigenous ethnic groups, to modern discussions regarding migration and globalism, peace studies to preserving material culture and immaterial knowledge. AND SO ON!
It’s the STUDY OF LIFE ITSELF … and therefor it is actually KNOWLEDGE FOR EVERYONE!
Especially in today’s time it is more than important to know about the different ways of living and its effect on each of us and on Mother Nature … to understand, get inspired, connect and take action towards a peaceful and sustainable future.

Ethno Yoga Projects
We believe that raising the consciousness and awareness into Joy, Peace and Happiness > a Nature aligned life in harmony with each other is possible and necessary with spreading the combination of Yoga and Ethnology.
We also believe that it is then our ‘responsibility’ to support those, who are not able to help themselves moving into that frequency because of their especially “outer Nature” circumstances.
And we know that with the Power of YOGA and an ethnological attitude it is possible to not only change their outer circumstances regarding their real needs according to their habiti and tradition yet also to help them shift their Inner Nature towards Joy and Happiness again.
Our Projects focus on supporting …
indigenous ethnic groups to maintain their tradition regarding a Nature aligned life
humans, especially children, who live in circumstances, which are against our “human rights” (means which are out of nature aligned life), like child labor, human trafficking, hunger, poverty, war and conflict
a sustainable life in saving, recharging and using natural resources and avoiding and stopping exploitation and pollution of Nature.
Our actual Projects
The Life of Rishikesh's Mountain Kids
Many villages in and around Rishikesh, the Yoga capital Valley in Northern India, are still practicing a very traditional way of living close to Nature, quite far away and disconnected from the city. Yet more and more this way of living is not “working” anymore because of natural and cultural changes. Like it was common to grow the own food in early times, this is becoming hard, since many of the vegetables and fruits are not growing anymore like before. That means the people are not independent anymore in supplying themselves with food and daily needs. Yet there are almost no opportunities for work so that many families are living in very poor conditions. They cannot afford to nourish their kids properly and send them to school.
We wish to give them Joy and support them for an independent life according to their uniqye Individuality!
Imagine being so close to Nature that you dont want or need anything else. Some of the Moken are still living in their traditional way on and with the ocean.
The word Moken means “people of the water” and refers to an ethnic group of semi-nomadic Austronesian people, who live in the Mergui Archipelago, a group of approximately 800 islands in the Andaman (claimed by Myanmar and Thailand).
Migrated to Thailand, Burma and Malaysia from Southern China approximately 4,000 years ago, the Moken have traditionally lived on hand-built wooden boats called kabang for most of the year. They have historically shunned material possessions and rejected outside technology.
In rainy season, when the south-western monsoon hits the shore, they have traditionally built temporary wooden shelter houses on the eastern side of the island to protect themselves from the strong winds and rainfalls.
The Moken call the ocean their universe! They have not only their own cultural tradition and beliefs, also their own language and within time they established extraordinary abilities to dive and see clearly under water.
Yet today they are endangered and only very few of them live as semi-nomadic families.
Most have been forced to live on the mainland and be integrated in Thai society, from which they are not respected and acknowledged because of their undocumented identity and different cultural habits. That leads many of them into depression and hopelessness, since they don’t find any work and especially they can’t handle this new way of living.
Some of them are selling handicrafts as souvenirs, working as boatmen, gardeners and garbage collectors for the tourist industry.
The semi-nomadic numbers have diminished due to political and post-tsunami regulations, companies drilling for oil off-shore, governments seizing their lands for tourism development and industrial fishing.
The Thai Buddhist Monk Phrakhru Suwattithammarat dedicated his work since the Tsunami 2004 to support the Moken and maintain their cultural tradition and ethnic language. Until today the Moken children are invited in the kindergarden on the temple area in Kuraburi, Southern Thailand, for free, provided with nutritious meals and valuable education.
Julia had been living on this temple area for several times, doing fieldwork about the meaning about the Buddha sculpture, participating in the everyday life and supporting the Moken projects. In the most precious moments she found herself on the Moken Boat somewhere out on the ocean, suddenly feeling the deep connection to Mother Nature this people have and motivated to support and maintain their way of living anyhow possible.
The Moken project focus on:
Support Education for children from 2 years to 14 years
Nutrition for Babies
Maintaining cultural tradition habiti and the Moken language
