Hatha Yoga & Power / Yin Vinyasa
What is Vinyasa ?
Vinyasa is a form of ﬂuid yoga, a link between the movement of the body and the breath, where primary importance is given to pranayama, to the breath, which must support us and lead us to inner perceptions throughout our practice.
It is a recent and modern practice, more and more requested in yoga centers. It is a continuous ﬂow of asanas punctuated by vinyasa, in fact, characterized by 3 main positions around which all the remaining practice is thought in order to deepen some aspects, such as strengthening the core, elongations, arching or providing a continuous ﬂow between the various groups of positions.
The course focuses on how to make the most of the peculiarities of this style of yoga: it can be used to strengthen the body, through asanas of strength and balance or increase ﬂexibility and concentration, through stretching and holding asana.
Of great importance, the attention we’ll bring to breathing ﬂuidly and the signiﬁcance of pranayama to get the maximum beneﬁts from this practice.
Through pranayama we are able to connect completely with the movement and to make our practice a real Yoga practice and not a form of gymnastics or stretching. Breathing allows our body to carry oxygen, this allows the yoga practitioner to continuously oxygenate their tissues, organs, muscles. This connection allows our mind to be oxygenated, to eliminate thoughts and ruminations, to create space and free those who in yoga are called Siddhi (spiritual or psychic abilities), the powers connected to the connection with the self, intuition and clairvoyance. (clairvoyance: vision, ability to have a clear vision of our journey) This makes yoga a practice where you do not feel the fatigue at the end of the lesson but a sense of total energy and contentment.
What is Pranayama?
Pranayama is one of the four fundamental principles of yoga. Prana, our vital energy, which spreads through our body through our breath and ﬁlls us with new energy. That energy that we continuously disperse in our daily life instead of preserving it.
Pranayama allows us to generate new energy, through diﬀerent techniques, increasing or decreasing the ﬁre, raising or lowering the temperature, in support to the moment we are living.
