Welcome to Harmonise


Harmonise offers Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, breathing and meditation taught by Tim Nel, who trained originally in karate as a child. After completing his B. Bus Sci Marketing Honours from UCT, Tim spent 2 years in South Korea, where he furthered his martial arts training, practicing Hapkido* for one year and Aikido** for one year. His love of martial arts soon transformed into a love of yoga.
After 3.5 years in the exhibitions industry, Tim left for India, where he trained in Rishikesh to become a certified yoga instructor. He now operates a small branding agency called Timo Branding Solutions. Tim has also completed two nutrition courses online through the Universities of Copenhagen and California respectively – the knowledge gained from these courses forms part of the holistic approach to yoga and healing which Harmonise offers.

“I am fascinated with psychology and spirituality and am constantly refining my perception of reality – which is a somewhat Buddhist approach. I share insights and observations from teachings that I have studied in my classes and aim to cultivate a sense of presence which students can take away with them. I believe that becoming centered, peaceful and in harmony with life is the true purpose of yoga.  I hope to energize and be part of that shift in awareness.”

What I wondered about recently is the affect that a physical product or system has on ones’ mind. The fact that … Continue reading Thought shapes the environment which shapes thought

Plastic – what are our responsibilities?

Walk into any public building such as a mall, grocery store or movie theater and you will see thousands of products all very beautifully wrapped in shiny multi-coloured plastic packaging. Soft-drink bottles, chocolate bars, yogurt, cereal and even fruit and vegetables wrapped up in plastic. Hard plastic, soft plastic, clear plastic, colourful plastic. Now, there … Continue reading Plastic – what are our responsibilities?

Free your mind

Our society values alert problem solving consciousness, and it devalues all other states of consciousness. Any kind of consciousness that is not related to the production or consumption of material goods is stigmatized in our society today. Of course, we accept drunkenness. We allow people some brief respite from the material grind. Graham Hancock
