Hatha Yoga: is an open class that anyone can attend, although students of different levels are gathered, those who have never attended a yoga class before will feel comfortable.
The word hatha means willful or forceful. Hatha refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely.
Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine aspects—active, hot, sun—and feminine aspects—receptive, cool, moon—within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose.
Yoga Nidra : Yoga Nidra aka psychic sleep is a powerful relaxation technique that induces complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation, with the ultimate goal of increasing self-awareness.
Whatever impression you plant within the subconscious mind during the practice of Yoga Nidra cannot be rejected, it will grow and the fruits will enrich every aspect of your life.
The session includes the practices of gentle asanas (physical postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), long Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) and meditation.
Vinyasa Yoga : Vinyasa yoga is a discipline that utilizes postures and breathing techniques. This form of yoga offers a range of health benefits to those who practice it, as it encompasses all areas of mind, body and spirit.
Derived from hatha yoga, Vinyasa yoga differs in some important ways from its predecessor. Vinyassa yoga is often faster paced, and the assanas (postures) are linked together in a series of movements that are synchronized with the breath. Much emphasis is placed on the breath and the transition in and out of the assanas. Generally speaking, upward movements correlate with inhalations of the breath, and downward movements with exhalations.
The continual movements, from one pose to another, gives you an addedcardiovascular benefit, which more traditional forms of yoga do not have. The routine practice of vinyasa yoga can increase muscle strength, endurance and flexibility, and reduce levels of stress.
Ashtanga Yoga: is a vigorous yoga practice based on the notion of vinyasa which means breathing with movement. Students come to gradually memorize a sequence of postures that are practiced traditionally in Mysore India following the tradition of Krishnamasharya and his student Pattabhi Jois.
Workshops and guest teachers : are to be announced during weekends. Workshops emphasize in depth work on a specific posture or a group of postures as well as the wisdom of yoga condensed into 5 principles for physical, mental and spirtual well-being .
