Breath, flow, let go

Hatha Vinyasa Yoga

 

Vinyasa is a Sanskrit word that means to synchronize body movement with breathing. It is a dynamic and active practice, that combines the flow of coordinated movements and breath (isodynamic postures) with the stillness and the physical and energetic alignment (isometric postures). So we can strengthen and relax the body, calm the mind and achieve balance and peace to enter into an harmonic and transformative “here and now”. With a regular practice, we will develop space in the body, integration and connection of all its parts, flexibility, strength, balance, concentration, relaxation… we will improve our posture and finally our health to all levels (spine, respiratory system, nervous, circulatory, digestive, immune …)

Laura’s Vinyasa classes are fluid and rhythmic, energetic and intense, soft and loving, she suggest sequences from less to more, which prepare the body to enter into a deep connection between breathing and movement, between body and mind. We work from feet and hands, legs and arms, to integrate and strengthen the muscular and energetic chains that connect with the center of the body. During her sessions, Laura offers individual help; she encourages each practitioner to explore her own potential and rediscover strength, flexibility, space and inner balance.

Hatha Yoga

hatha yoga

It is the classic yoga, and the most widespread in the world. It is based mostly on the practice of asanas (comfortable, stable and firm postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) and its purpose is to purify body and mind to be ready for meditation. Through the body we calm the mind. A healthy body and a calm mind generates harmony and connects us with our inner wisdom, turning the yoga practice into a path of inner exploration and growth.

Yin Yoga

It is a quiet and meditative style that is practiced with our muscles totally relaxed. He hold passive postures for a long time (from 2 to 5-7 minutes), allowing deep stretching of muscles and connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia), as well as increasing the range of motion of the body. This slow and deep practice also allows us to access the subtle energies. By stretching the muscles and fascia, we stimulate the path of chi or vital energy through the different meridians (energy channels) in the body. A kind of yoga to travel deep inside, feel, let go and leave out the class floating.

Subtle Yoga

A meditative practice to connect with our energetic body, beyond the physical body. We cultivate attention and mental focus to feel the energy in the different chakras or energetic points of the body. Energy flows where the attention goes.

Partner Yoga

To give and receive, to help and be helped, to care and let the others to take care of us, sharing, trusting and letting go. A beautiful practice to balance our sender and receiver sides, to look us in the eyes, laugh, play, and feel the connection with the partner from being with oneself.

Restorative yoga

Combination of soft asanas (postures) maintained for a long time to rest, refresh the body and release physical and mental tensions.

Breathing

One of the focus of classes and retreats is to learn to breathe correctly, in a complete, deep and conscious way, as a key to our health, vitality and happiness. When we learn to return to the essence, to natural breathing, we are prepared for other more complex pranayamas (breathing control techniques), which help us to increase prana and mental clarity.

Relaxation

Savasana (corpse posture) is the most important posture of a yoga class, which we use to integrate the benefits of the practice. We make long and pleasant savasanas after the Vinyasa classes, and guided relaxations to rest the body and calm the mind.

Meditation

Meditation is a mind training practice that is used to achieve awareness, calmness and mental clarity. We practice different concentration techniques such as observation of breathing, visualization of positive images or attention to bodily sensations. We meditate at the beginning or the end of the class to connect with high vibrations, as gratitude, openness or surrender.
