Ira Hardjosusono & Elke Brouwers

About Ira

Ira’s yoga classes are characterized by her students as very careful and direct, moving deeply in the energy of the moment, to the rhythm of the breath.

 

Via traditional Hatha Yoga Ira met her teacher and guide Katiza Satya in 2005. Inspired and always listening to the movement of the moment she came in contact with Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, which provided a solid foundation for deepening of her practice through intensives and retreats, including Delight Sva-Dharma Teacher Training / The Body, The Mind and The Heart (all three levels of Delight Advanced studies), and Vipassana meditation.

 

In deep trust Ira allowed her curiosity to lead her organically in the direction of meditation and Buddhism. She has received direct and indirect teachings from a large number of teachers and masters, including Sri Ramana Maharshi ,Tenzin Wangyal, Namkai Norbu Rimpoche, Sogyal Rimpoche, Thich Nhat Hanh, BKS Iyengar , Tsulstrim Allione, Orit Sen Gupta, Kevin Sahaj and Shirley Woods.

 

Ira is a teacher at Delight Yoga. She is a registered RYT / Yoga Alliance Teacher and deeply devoted to the never-ending study of Yoga and meditation in their many forms. With love, wit and mindfulness she shares her dedication in Hatha/Mindfulness/Meditation classes.
Ira inspires her students to move from the breath, with Heart and Soul. A constant invitation to remember who they are, in every posture, in every situation. Again and Again.

 

About Elke

 

Elke is a musician and devoted yoga practitioner. She has been singing from a young age. Music always showed her the door within. 

 

Via Hatha Yoga Elke met her teacher and guide Katiza Satya in 2007. After practising Tai Chi for years, Yoga allowed her to turn inwards even more. Inspired by Yoga, she came in contact with Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga by Katiza Satya and Claudia Pradella. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga provided a solid foundation for her practice. After giving birth to her two children her body asked for a softer approach. Kevin Sahaj guided her into Healing Yoga and Yantra Yoga. She deepened her practice through classes and retreats including The Heart (Delight Advanced studies) and a study of mindfulness. She has received teachings from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Namkai Norbu Rimpoche, Amma and Lama Tsulstrim Allione. She studied the practice of ‘Feeding Your Demons’with Lama Tsultrim Allione.

 

Satya encouraged her to open her heart by singing. Her first encounter with the singing of mantras was with Anand Nigam during an Ashtanga retreat on Bali in 2009. This felt like coming home. Over the years singing became her Sadhana. Sahaj motivated her to open herself to the Bhakti Yoga. She is inspired by Jahnavi Harrison, Kirtana, Krishna Das and Bada Hari Das. Elke sings mantras and writes songs from the heart. When Elke sings her voice invites you to turn within, to light your torch and light all places in your body which need to be touched. 

 

“The first thing we did when we entered this world is we opened our mouth and we took a breath of this air. And when we let this air out we let out a sound, a cry, our voice that was set out. Your voice, that sound, that vibration went out and introduced you to all of nature, all of this world, as well as all the way into the universe. Announcing, you are here in this world. That established your voice”. Mona Polacca
