VINYASA Yoga


 

 

                                                    

Contrary to what people commonly think, yoga is not always static: it can become dynamic through changes in rhythm and energetic intensity.

Emphasis is placed on body sequencing, in movement or stasis. The postures create strength, flexibility, mastery, and relaxation in order to avoid the pain and physical problems commonly caused by improper alignment.

A high degree of precision is sought, in accordance with the personal needs of each practitioner.

The retraining of muscle groups, their revitalization and balancing give access to psychological and spiritual analysis of the body.

Dynamic yoga above all aims to connect placement, without neglecting the aesthetic aspects of movement.

Bodily and spiritual harmony can be attained thanks to the constant improvement and adjustment of postures that become stable and firm, tied to natural breathing.

At the end of each class, ten minutes are dedicated to complete relaxation.

 

 


"Détente" Yoga


 

                        

Simple restorative postures reinvigorate and refresh both the body and the spirit, teaching the practitioner how to relax with full awareness of breathing and sensations.

This is achieved by a thorough relaxation leading to the complete release of muscles, skin, internal organs and the nervous system. The body is passive, but the mind remains alert, vigilant, present.

The general 'shut down' of the organism engenders a state of calm and relaxation, which prevents emotional movements from becoming pathological. 

 

                           


Breathing


The practitioner is asked to be permanently aware of bodily sensations and respiration (The Breath).

Vital energy is refined and corrected in each posture and allows for the effective application of PRANAYAMA exercises (mastery of the breath and regulation of energy).

A natural meditation ensues.
