Yoga styles

Ashtanga yoga

ASHTANGA YOGA

Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic style of yoga popularized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, one of the greatest teachers of yoga of the 20th century, who sent Ashtanga yoga to the world and spread it through the West.

Ashtanga is a disciplined, demanding practice that purifies the body and mind and that makes us present, focused, content and happy in a peaceful and grounded way.

YOGA FOR SPINE

Yoga for spine is designed to help improve the mobility of the spine with a preventive approach.

Twisting the spine releases potentially pinched nerves, strengthens muscle tissue, and improves ligament flexibility.

Vinyasa Flow

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic form of yoga that developed from the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga system. Vinyasa is the connection of breath and movement through various positions. Vinyasa's movements are reminiscent of dancing. It has a number of positive effects on both the body and the mind.

The body is warmed up in sequence and the increase in body temperature burns toxins accumulated in the joints and muscles, thus revitalizing the body, and the mind is calmed by the rhythmic sound of ujjayi breath that accompanies the movements. All these interconnected parameters lead to meditation in motion and the release of energy blockages.

 

MEDITATION

Meditation is a simple method of relaxation that helps us to rest and relax completely psychophysically, as during the deepest sleep.

During meditation, the parasympathetic system is activated and increases the secretion of serotonin and melatonin by as much as 300%, increases blood flow by as much as 200%, reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke, reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, reduces lactic acid production and the amount of stress hormones. Through meditation we increase concentration, focus, the ability to better organize and learn faster.

 

 

hatha Flow

HATHA FLOW

In Hatha flow yoga classes, the exercises are performed slowly and in a relaxing rhythm with an emphasis on paying attention to the breath and maintaining yoga positions, which alternate in fluid sequences. The movement is continuous in nature; in everyday life movements are interconnected and are never fragmented or isolated. In this way, exercise sequences are also planned, so that the exercisers progress gradually and have a smooth, uninterrupted sequence of movements.

Asanas have a strong influence on the physical, mental and spiritual level of a person - practicing certain positions increases body mobility, strengthens muscles and increases strength, and relaxation techniques and breathing exercises remove physical and mental tension which leads to deep relaxation.

The positive effect of this discipline on the cardiovascular, respiratory and loco-motor systems has been scientifically proven. Since it is a moderate physical activity, it is recommended for everyone, regardless of age, fitness and health, because the movements are performed to the level of their own limitation.

 

PRANAYAMA

Pranayama is the management of life energy (prana) through breath, breathing techniques and directing prana.

Pranayama is the science of prana and breath and the ancient yogis did them to increase the quantity and quality of prana, purify the nadis (energy channels) and chakras (energy centers) and immerse themselves in the deep experience of bliss and connection with the divine source.
