Pranayama Program Level 1

Pranayama is a profound practice. It has a whole host of health benefits and is probably one of the most effective tools there is for holistic health. It works primarily on the nervous system, and through that, it has an influence on pretty much every other system in the body. It can improve your digestion, give you a slower and more even heartbeat, bring greater mental calm, give you more energy, help you deal with the effects of stress, improve your cardiovascular fitness, improve the health of all your organs and much more.


Pranayama needs regular practice and commitment to start being internalized and genuinely felt. This eight-week program is the perfect place to begin your relationship with pranayama. Helping you develop a regular practice and introducing different techniques at the appropriate times. There is a new class for each week. Ideally, you would do this class every day of the week, but indeed as many days as you can. There is also an introductory video for the start of each week, where we will go over new techniques and themes.

Ladder Fit Flow

Ladder flows are different than a regular Vinyasa class because of their sequencing. We'll begin with two or three postures and then we'll keep on adding one or two new movements per round. Each round is linked by a Vinyasa or sun salutation. We'll do 5 rounds in total, by the 5th one, we'll have memorized a complete flow feeling much more comfortable in every posture and trying to do it better every time, challenging the mind and the body. Ladder Fit Flow is a great full-body workout where we balance strength and flexibility and we get a moving meditation.

Trust Your Foundation

In today’s society, there is a lot of talk about “finding balance,” as if it was some elusive, mystical state in a galaxy far far away, that we can only reach through much effort and experimenting. 


The truth is that balance is our naturally inherent state. If we could remove all the clutter, we have placed on top of the body’s natural wisdom, and become more adept at listening to what it tells us. We would know when something is throwing us out of that naturally present state of ease. Instead of burying that something under more distractions, we would simply let it go. 


Finding physical balance is about learning not to hold on, or grasp, for dear life, but rather trusting yourself enough to expand into the space around you. To live your life fully, with a sense of feeling grounded and rooted, yet infinitely light.

Five Elements

In this Vinyasa Yoga program, we focus on embodying the qualities of Pancha Mahabhutas or 5 elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space) into the vinyasa practice. Each of the 5 elements has certain qualities and we are all an embodiment of the qualities. When these qualities are in balance we experience harmony in our life. Although vinyasa yoga is primarily a fire practice, being aware of the qualities of 5 elements and incorporating them into the practice will help us have a more balanced body and mind. Get ready to get strong, flexible, centered and more open in body, mind, and spirit.


Enjoy your practice!

Ashtanga Para Principiantes

Este programa de Ashtanga Yoga pretende ser una guía para aquellas personas que deseen iniciarse en la práctica de Ashtanga. Se recomienda ir despacio e ir incorporando posturas a medida que se avance en la práctica.


La práctica de Ashtanga comienza siempre con Saludos al Sol (Surya Namaskara en sánscrito). Muchas tradiciones yóguicas creen que el Sol no sólo se encuentra en el Espacio, sino también en el corazón de cada uno de nosotros.

Los Saludos al Sol establecen la base de la práctica, calientan el cuerpo, relajan la musculatura, abren las articulaciones y estimulan el sistema nervioso. Durante su realización, el practicante comienza a ser consciente de la importancia de sincronizar la respiración, el cuerpo, la mente y el espíritu.

From Flexibility to Mobility

When we think about mobility it can be easy to get it confused or mixed with flexibility; mobility is the ability to take a joint to its full range of motion with control.

This program is divided into five classes to help you work through different parts of the body and work on your mobility. To be able to achieve a good amount of mobility, flexibility is a significant prerequisite.

During these five classes, we will try to take our flexibility into mobility, working hard to control our full range of motion and by doing so, find stability in our joints.

Learn to Love Your Hamstrings

When I first began practicing yoga, the backs of my legs were so tight, that forget about touching my toes - I could hardly reach my knees! Over the years, with a lot of time, dedication, and even more patience, these are the postures that have been beneficial in opening my hamstrings and turn forward folds from dreaded to enjoyable. Please stay at about 70% of what would be your maximum capacity, so that you leave a 30% room to grow. It is often when we soften, as opposed to when we push, that transformation occurs.

Hatha Yoga Complete

This class is designed to both strengthen and increase suppleness.  The traditional Hatha approach is slower and we take a resting pose between the more demanding poses.


The slowness and time to digest the poses creates a more meditative environment and we try to do some of the poses with our eyes closed.


You will work your body in all the directions that it needs, while at the same time nourishing your energy and soothing your nervous system.

Balance and Strength

There are a lot of balance poses in yoga, from balancing on one foot to balancing on the crown of the head. And the truth is that all of these poses require some level of balance to perform them successfully. Having stability in standing balance poses requires the coordination and the strength of several different muscle groups. Major groups involved are the hip muscles: the outer hip muscles (abductors), the gluteus muscles (buttocks), the inner thigh muscles (adductors). The shin, calf muscles and the core muscles are also very very important. Come and join on the mat and get balanced!

Twisted Twists

Let's squeeze the body with this yoga flow! Indian yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar describes twists as a "squeeze-and-soak" action: The organs are compressed during a twist, pushing out blood filled with metabolic by-products and toxins. When we release the twist, fresh blood flows in, carrying oxygen and the building blocks for tissue healing. So, twists stimulate circulation and have a cleansing and refreshing effect on the torso organs and associated glands.

Plank to Chaturanga

Let's learn how to do a proper Plank pose and then flow into Chaturanga Dandasana!. The pose is challenging for many students, but its payoffs are great: It strengthens the arms and legs, tones the abdominals, builds healthy shoulders, and prepares students for arm balances, inversions, and backbends. And it's character-building. Correct alignment builds strength for those who struggle in that department and teaches the sturdier student, who often relies on brute force, to refine the pose in ways that prevent damaging the shoulders.

Alleviate PMS

Although the subject of practicing at all while on the first days of your period is a controversial one, and the experience of these days are highly individual from woman to woman, and even from month to month. On request, I share what makes me feel good. Or, at least, a little better, on days when PMS, and perhaps feeling a little more vulnerable, are keeping me from a more dynamic practice. It is slow and soft, but no less valuable.
