If you look at bell-bottoms from the front or the side, they are reminiscent of the shape of a trumpet or bell (hence the English-language name Bell Bottoms).

Bell bottoms are also the trousers that the carpenter wears as work clothing. The impact is supposed to prevent dirt from getting into the shoes. Traditionally, the long trousers of sailors have a "flare".

In the fashion scene and industry, bell-bottoms had their wedding in the 60s and 70s and are considered a fashion symbol of the hippie / hippy movement; At that time they were often additionally equipped with a so-called box pleat in the lower leg area, which was partly held together by a silver chain. The trumpet-like enlargement only began below the knees. By the early 1980s, they had completely disappeared from the streets.

They experienced a resurgence in the 1990s and were very popular, especially among young people. Especially in the techno and rave scene, in addition to the revival of hippie versions, a shape developed that became the standard at commercial raves in particular: pants made of nylon material, often shiny, with one stroke that continuously expands from the buttocks down.

These very wide-cut trousers were particularly popular with men at the time. Usually these bulged loosely around the entire hip area and became narrower and narrower towards the bottom. The trousers reached to the knee / ankle and were "slit" on the sides for a good reason: because at that time it was "in" to be able to let the noble and often very expensive linings of the harem pants glint through. Shortly before the end of the 16th century, the former Pluder became a species Knee breeches.

The Orient also became aware of the harem pants. Here they were worn centuries ago.

YOGA STYLES

In alphabetical order you will get to know a wide variety of yoga styles. Depending on the 'yoga fashion trend', some new hybrid forms are added every year that are difficult for the layperson to understand.

You can find the well-known yoga styles from A-Z, their origins and their representatives here.

Anusara yoga
Yoga style founded by the American John Friend in 1997.
anusara = "to follow, to follow" or "natural state". The goal is a joyful, "heart-following" yoga practice. But the focus is not on the perfectly executed asanas, but on the natural joy with which they are performed. John Friend had many years of experience as an Iyengar yoga teacher and also incorporated Tantra elements into his style.

Ashtanga-Vinyasa Yoga
The Indian Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) developed a very powerful and dynamic form of Hatha Yoga. Predefined, very demanding dynamic series in the Indian style are practiced, and the individual asanas are often connected to one another by jumps. Participants are taught to breathe in a certain way while practicing (ujjayi breathing).

Bhakti yoga
Bhaj = serve or devotion.
Bhakti is love for God, also absolute devotion to a guru (teacher). Bhakti-Yoga teaches selfless action without expectations of one's own. Bhakti is unconditional - I love you whatever you do, say or think. Every action begins with the will to experience divine perfection.

Bikram yoga
Bikram Yoga is practiced at 38 degrees and up to 40% humidity. It consists of a sequence of 24 hatha yoga exercises (asanas) and two breathing exercises (pranayama). These 26 exercises were selected and compiled from more than 800 asanas by the Indian yoga master Bikram Choudhury. It is a sporty and demanding yoga and is supposed to improve physical strength, flexibility and balance and detoxify the body through sweating.

Hatha yoga
"Hatha" = strength, endurance, energy.
Hatha Yoga is a generic term for body-related yoga, i. H. for yogic body and breathing exercises.

Hatha Yoga is the most commonly practiced form in the West and when “yoga” is spoken of in general, Hatha Yoga is usually meant.
Many teachers, who draw their inspiration from different yoga traditions, refer to their courses as Hatha yoga.

Exercise frequency: Most people feel the beneficial effects of yoga, even if they only attend a class once a week. More intense effects are of course achieved if you practice 3-4 times a week under professional guidance.
Every long-term Hatha Yoga practice aims at independent practice at home, where you can adapt the exercise program to individual requirements (time, state of health, stage of life, etc.).

Hormone yoga
The Brazilian psychologist and yoga teacher Dinah Rodrigues developed what is known as "hormone yoga". She combined training cycles with exercises from Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Tibetan energy exercises. The ovaries, thyroid and adrenal glands are specifically stimulated to stimulate hormone production. Hormonal yoga is not only supposed to help with menopause and menopausal symptoms, but is also used successfully in women who want to have children.

In a study at the University of São Paulo, women's estrogen levels rose by up to 254 percent after four months of hormonal yoga. The productivity of the ovaries increased by 75 percent. A US study recently confirmed a long-term hormonal effect of yoga in women going through menopause.

Dinah Rodrigues recommends that women start exercising as a preventive measure from their mid-30s, especially since hormonal yoga also has a positive effect on menstrual cramps or premenstrual syndrome. If you want to get a grip on existing menopausal symptoms, you should ideally train daily and stay on the ball for a long time. Although the first successes can be seen after a week, numerous symptoms such as hot flashes, inner restlessness or depressive mood are only significantly alleviated after one or two months.
The exercises are easy to learn even for beginners.

Integral yoga
This form of yoga developed by Swami Satchidananda, a student of Swami Sivananda, combines postures, deep relaxation, breathing exercises and meditation as well as positive thinking. A more spiritual path, rooted in the Indian tradition, in which more emphasis is placed on a calm, meditative mood than on exactness and accuracy in the asanas.

Iyengar yoga
The Indian B.K.S. Iyengar (pronounced: aiyengar) founded this powerful yoga style. His many years of preoccupation with the execution and effects of postures (asanas) and breathing exercises (pranayama) led to the worldwide spread of this style.
Iyengaryoga also allows individual access to the needs of the practitioner in group lessons. Typical is the use of aids such as belts, blocks, etc. and, if necessary, the exercises are broken down into intermediate steps. Precise observation, instruction, correction and a didactically well-thought-out teaching style bring students into exact positions.

Jnana Yoga
Sanskrit "jnana" = knowledge, insight.
Refers to worldly, scientific, and spiritual knowledge. The way of knowledge (of the highest truth), so to speak.

Jivamukti Yoga
Developed by dancer Sharon Gannon and artist David Life in New York in the 80s. Jivamukti means something like "the liberation of the soul" and is a modern form of Hatha Yoga.
Dance exercises that flow into one another alternate with chants and special breathing techniques. The aim is: to develop mental strength and balance. www.jivamuktiyoga.de

Karma yoga
Sanskrit = do, do.
Karma Yoga is often understood as "Yoga of selfless service", because every action has an effect on the environment, on people, living beings, etc. Karma Yoga teaches you to act neutrally and consciously and not according to your own likes or dislikes. It teaches to neutralize the ego, so to speak.

Kripalu yoga
This style was founded by the Indian Amrit Desai. It is based on gentle physical exercises, supported by flowing breathing. The ultimate goal of this style is to cultivate a detached and conscious awareness of the process involved. Self-acceptance and emotional stability are important. Practical exercises play an important role, the external perfecting of postures or breathing techniques are rather secondary.

Kriya Yoga
A very old Indian exercise method, consisting of special body and breathing exercises, cleansing techniques, meditation with an emphasis on mind training. The most famous representative was the Indian Paramahamsa Yogananda.

Kundalini yoga
Kundalini yoga is about stimulating and strengthening that energy that is seen as resting in the pelvis or at the lower end of the spine (Kundalini). This is achieved through intense breathing exercises, asanas, kriyas (cleansing exercises) and meditation.

Luna yoga
A young style developed in the west in which yoga exercise series are specially tailored to the individual needs of women.

Mixed forms
Many yoga teachers combine different styles of yoga. This results in different focal points with more or less or no orientation at all to Indian worldviews.

Power yoga
A shortened and simplified form of Ashtanga yoga, which is mainly practiced in fitness centers as a fitness and workout technique.

Raja yoga
Today, Raja Yoga mainly means meditation exercises that relate to the "eightfold yoga path of Patanjali". This is then - in contrast to Hatha yoga - understood as a more spiritually oriented yoga path.

Sivananda Yoga
The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers were founded by Swami Vishnudevananda (1927-1993), a teacher of Hatha and Raja yoga and a close student of the yoga master and doctor Swami Sivananda (1887-1963). The following have been taught worldwide for around 50 years: Asanas (postures), breathing exercises, deep relaxation, nutrition, positive thinking and meditation.

Tao Yin Yoga
This is how Chinese yoga, which has elements similar to Indian hatha yoga, is called. In Tao Yin Yoga, the dynamic mobility, inner strength and elasticity of the ligaments and tendons are emphasized. The focus is on breathing control, deep relaxation and strengthening the abdominal area and the spine. Tao Yin (Chinese for "bend and stretch") provides the basis for Tai Chi, Qigong and longer meditations.

Yoga in the tradition T. Krishnamacharya / Viniyoga
The Indian Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888-1989) was the teacher of many yoga teachers who are known in the West today (BKS Iyengar, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and many more). His son T.K.V. Desikachar continues the tradition.
Breathing and movement are precisely coordinated, in flowing processes (dynamic practice) and calm postures (static practice), depending on the situation and the purpose of the practice. Philosophy, reflection, meditation have their place. The individual adaptation of the practice to the needs of the group or the individual are a special feature of this type of practice. Accordingly, one-to-one tuition is very highly valued.

Yoga in Daily Life
The system "Yoga in Daily Life" is a methodically structured exercise path and was developed by Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, who has lived in Vienna since 1972. It combines the millennia-old wisdom and science of yoga with the knowledge of modern medicine.




Fiber hemp in the textile industry - natural textiles

Hemp (Cannabis sativa) is grown in Europe and around the world primarily for fiber production. From an ecological point of view, the fast-growing plant is a good link in the crop rotation, as its dense, high growth completely suppresses weeds and leaves a cooked soil. In contrast to cotton cultivation, plant protection measures against insects or fungal pathogens are not required.
The seed strength of fiber hemp depends on the intended use. The denser the stand, the higher the stalk proportion (straw), the finer the fiber and the lower the seed yield.

In Thailand and Laos, hemp is still harvested and processed by hand in order to obtain the highest fiber qualities, the so-called long fibers, which are used for natural textiles. This also includes traditional, very labor-intensive water roasting.
In the industrialized nations, hemp harvesting and processing technology has not been further developed for 50 years and is now a technical challenge. After decades of outlawing and banning, mowers for straw harvesting and combine harvesters for straw and seed harvest are in use today. These leave shortened hemp straw behind for so-called field roasting, for drying and later pressing into bales. Because of the toughness of the hemp fibers, mechanical harvesting results in high losses of 40 to 50% of straw and seeds in the field. Nevertheless, straw yields of 4 to 10 tons and seed yields of 400 to 800 kg per hectare are achieved. A fiber yield of 30 to 40% is obtained, plus the wood core of the hemp stalk in the form of so-called shives, for which there are also technical uses.
