People often call it the yoga of awareness. We’re combining dynamic physical exercises, breathing techniques, mudras, meditations, chanting and relaxation to balance body, mind and soul. Kundalini yoga it is aimed to awaken and develop our vital energy. Each Kriya – sequence of postures – is dedicated to a specific subject. Almost all the current yoga postures are present (cobra, triangle, bow, wheel, etc.) Headstands and extreme stretching poses are not part of the practice.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. The poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body - the tendons, fascia, and ligaments - with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
The way of breathing is strongly related to our life force and the joy of living. For this reason our attention is driven to a correct and profound respiration. There are numerous techniques of pranayamas - breath control - with a countless list of benefits.
Meditation is often related to sit still without thinking. Since it is quite difficult to stop the thoughts on demand we use words, mantras and other techniques to focalise our attention and calm our minds. Meditation helps to change our brain waves, clears our minds and promotes general well-beeing.
