VINYASA YOGA

Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term that can be translated as 'to position in a special way'. 

It is a dynamic, vigorous and fluid style at the same time.

Some of its peculiarities are the attention given both to the coordination between postures (Asanas) and breathing and to the transitions between one posture and another.

In this way, the succession of asanas gives rise to real sequences.

Each element is integrated into the other: movement and breathing, attention and alignment of the body, observation and listening, thus developing an awareness of the union between body and mind.

YIN YOGA

The practice of Yin Yoga consists of slow movements.
Asanas are held for a long time, to go deep and gently awaken fascias, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones and to relax the muscles.
It acts on the energy channels (Nadi according to Ayurvedic medicine, Meridians according to traditional Chinese medicine).
Through deep, conscious breathing, the tissues are stretched and space is created between the joints.
This practice wonderfully complements Vinyasa, Asthanga or other dynamic practices considered Yang.

YIN YOGA

RESTORATIVE YOGA 

Restorative yoga developed with Judith Hanson Lasater, a student of B.K.S. Iyengar.

In this style of yoga, the focus is on complete relaxation of the body.

With the help of various props (blankets, bricks, ropes, cushions, chairs), the asanas are supported and maintained for a long time, thus giving the body and mind the opportunity to relax and regenerate at the same time.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

YOGA FOR PERFORMER ARTISTS

Classes and seminars aimed at dancers, actors, musicians, singers, performers in general, companies, dance and theatre schools and anyone involved in working on and with the body.

In yogic practice, emphasis is placed on the union of body and mind.

Yoga is not only an excellent opportunity for performers to prevent injuries by strengthening, detoxifying and making their body, the instrument of their art, more flexible, but also to deepen and creatively practise the dialogue that takes place between body and mind.

INDIVIDUAL CLASSES 

"Yoga is relationship and relationship is peace".

T.K.V. Desikachar

Based on the assumption that every individual is different, the individual class is an opportunity to establish a direct relationship between teacher and pupil through targeted work.

Adapting the yogic practice to the individual needs of people is one of the cornerstones in the transmission of yoga, carried out by great masters such as T. Krishnamacharya, B.K.S. Iyenger, T.K.V. Desikachar.

SEMINARS AND RETREATS

Seminars and retreats are an excellent opportunity to deepen one's practice.

Especially if they take place in locations where the possibility is given to combine study and holiday in a concentrated and pleasant atmosphere.

In this type of meeting, different aspects of yoga are explored in depth, depending on the pre-established theme:

. Vinyasa Yoga

. Ying Yoga

. Restorative Yoga

. Pranayama

.  Introduction to meditation 

.  Introduction to Anatomy  

BUSINESS YOGA - YOGA IN THE WORKPLACE

In the office or in a room provided by the company, yoga can also be introduced in the workplace, during the lunch break or at the end of the working day.

But why yoga in the workplace?

Precisely where tensions and pressures are greatest, yoga helps, giving the tools to strengthen and relax the person at the same time, restoring the physical and mental balance needed to face or continue the working day.

Practice sessions last 30/45/60/75 minutes and can be customised/adapted according to individual needs, schedules and available space.

For further information, please contact me.

BUSINESS YOGA - YOGA IN THE WORKPLACE

TARGETED SEMINARS FOR TEACHERS ON HEALTH DAY

During the seminar we will learn two basic sequences of 15-20 minutes each.
One will be performed on the yoga mat and the other on the chair.
We will do exactly this in order to make the yogic sequence as practical and reproducible as possible so that it can be adapted to everyday conditions of space, time and possible physical problems.
If necessary, we will add or adjust some asanas to further customise the sequence according to the needs of each participant.

Handout
Participants will receive written material with the basic sequence.
We will repeat the sequence together to memorise it better.
Participants will be able to mark the material with notes and small drawings, so that they can personalise their handout and be able to reconstruct and repeat the sequence at home, without the presence of the teacher.

WHY IS YOGA GOOD?
DOES IT HELP REDUCE STRESS AND CAN IT HAVE A PREVENTIVE EFFECT?

The human being is something very complex.
We are made of matter yes, but also of thoughts ideas, emotions, and if we wish, also of spirit. 

We can therefore identify 3 fundamental planes that make up our existence as human beings.

The physical plane, made of matter, consisting of muscles, bones, organs (such as the liver, stomach, pancreas, intestines, brain.....) blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves. Which co-ordinate into systems and apparatuses and work together as one big orchestra.

The mental plane: co-ordinated by the brain and the nervous system, which not only co-operates with the physical body, but also gives life to ideas, thoughts, emotions and states of mind.

And the least concrete plane of all, the spiritual, for which it is said there is a need to believe, to have faith, precisely because it is not tangible.

Yoga embraces all these aspects.
It is a physical practice (the most common and best known in the West).
But it is also a mental, philosophical practice.
It is a spiritual practice.

It is rare to find other disciplines that truly touch so deeply on all these aspects that are part (willingly or unwillingly) of the human being's life.

That is why we can say that fundamentally, yoga is good: it considers the human being in all his 'planes', in all his facets, and it has the means, the tools (tried and tested for centuries and by thousands of masters who have dedicated their lives to doing this) to go and work on precisely all these aspects.

Here we will deal mainly with the physical aspect, with matter, but we will also touch on meditation (which concerns the more mental aspect).

You will see, however, how, even through work dedicated mainly to matter, one can still begin to touch the other two planes, the so-called subtler bodies of the human being.

Words such as acceptance, resilience, inner fire...may come to you even during the 'trivial' execution of physical exercises that in Yoga are called Asana.

Asana, from Sanskrit, sitting. A whole set of seated positions, but also standing, lying down, upside down....

So it goes without saying that it can be said that yoga helps reduce stress and can have a preventive effect.
When we work on the aspects listed above, we are working on maintaining health.

Yes, because even health is not something that remains unchanged indefinitely: it needs to be cultivated and cared for.


WHY IS YOGA A SUSTAINABLE PRACTICE?

Yoga is a sustainable practice precisely because it is a practice that can be repeated throughout life and at all ages.

It is a practice that was created and developed to help the human being, so it is yoga that adapts to the person and not the person to yoga.

This means that the yogic practice can and must be adaptable to each person's needs.

Especially when entering a therapeutic field such as yoga-therapy.


WHEN CAN YOGA BE HARMFUL?

The question that arises even before that is: but then, after all these nice things, this hype about yoga, how can yoga be bad for you?

Yoga can do harm. But when?
When it is practised badly.
Like all things.

So it is not yoga in itself that can hurt, but it is how it is practised, how it is interpreted, how it is transmitted!

It's lack of practice, lack of information, it's abuse and so on, as in all things, that can lead to problems.

It is essential to be aware of what you are doing.
And one way to cultivate this awareness is through constant practice.

Do we practice incorrectly? The result will be 'problematic'.
If we practise consciously, correctly, healthily, and pay attention to perceiving what signals the body and mind are sending us, and accept them, we will have increasingly positive results.

But this also requires training.

Nobody is born learned!
But everyone can learn.

Good practice ;-)
