Brief History of Timani Yoga
The Timani Yoga school was founded in 2019 by Tina Margareta Nilssen. It springs out of the Musicians’ Health and Movement Institute where there has been a certification in the movement system Timani since 2013. Timani provides effective help and preparation to coordinate the body in a healthy and sustainable way while performing other tasks such as playing an instrument or singing.
For several years there was a growing request amongst the increasing number of Timani students to be able to spread the knowledge lying within Timani to a larger group of people. Timani Yoga will be an accessible way to provide this, and also to create a possibility to give a more holistic and systematic way to train the body and mind without compromising any of the principles that are in yoga, nor in the Timani movement system, as these will enhance the practice of yoga in every way.
With Tina’s own background in yoga, the step into founding a yoga school was natural. She has practiced yoga since the age of 16 (since 1993) and took her 200h yoga teacher training at the Nordic Yoga School in Stockholm/India in 2011, as well as the advanced 300h training at Udaya/Jules Mitchell Yoga & Biomechanics in 2018. After working with movement health and mental health since 2002, teaching movement to thousands of musicians, Timani Yoga springs from a foundation of both knowledge and hands on experience.
The knowledge comes from Tina’s background as a Massage Therapist, a Kinetic Control practitioner, a Psychosomatic bodyworker, as an Ishayas’ Ascension meditation teacher and as a mental coach and therapist.
Timani Yoga represents a holistic view of the human body and mind and aims for a transformation through spiritual growth and connection with the higher self. This is attained through meditation, asanas and pranayama. In the first part of the training there is also focus on emotional balance and allowing energy through the body through gentle healing techniques that removes obstacles and resistance, given in one-to-one sessions and in the group. This can help the physical awareness and connection to the body while practicing asanas.
The physical part of Timani Yoga is a combination of dynamic Hatha yoga and slow Timani exercises that prepare the body for an optimal coordination and balance during the yoga asanas. These are attuned with scientific and biomechanical principles. The mindfulness part aims to give a direct experience of the Stillness within and create a physical flow through awareness of the body in different positions. There are instructions connected to applied biomechanical principals, but still leaving a space for exploration to open and expand the body in an individual way.
The students learn about biomechanics, the science of stretching, the history and science of yoga and health, yoga philosophy (guest speaker), Ayurveda and nutrition, Yoga Nidra, Pranayama, Yoga asanas and how to lead and teach a class.
