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.

Los 8 Miembros del Yoga

El yoga se divide tradicionalmente en 8 miembros o aspectos y eso es precisamente lo que significa Ashtanga (Asta: ocho; Anga. miembro). Estos, a su vez, pueden dividirse en 3 grupos:

  • Yama y Niyama son disciplinas éticas sociales e individuales

  • Asana, Pranayama y Pratyahara son aspectos que conducen a la evolución del individuo

  • Dharana, Dhyana y Samadhi son los efectos del yoga, que proporcionan la experiencia de la visión del alma, si bien no forman parte, como tales, de la práctica del yoga

Mantras

En la práctica de Ashtanga se entonan dos mantras, uno al principio y otro al final. Es recomendable que el practicante se aprenda ambos aunque no es obligatorio.


Mantra de apertura:


Om

vande gurūṇāṃ caraṇāravinde

sandarśita svātma sukhāva bodhe

niḥśreyase jāngalikāyamāne

saṃsāra hālāhala mohaśāntyai


ābāhu puruṣākāraṃ

śaṇkha cakrāsi dhāriṇam

sahasra śirasaṃ śvetaṃ

praṇamāmi patañjalim

Om


Om

Rezo a los pies de loto del gurú supremo

Que enseña su saber, despertando la gran alegría del ser revelado

Que actúa como chamán de la selva

Capaz de eliminar la decepción del veneno de una existencia condicionada.

Ante Patanjali, encarnación de Adisesa, que con su color blanco,

Mil cabezas radiantes (en su forma de serpiente divina, Ananta)

y su aspecto humano a partir de los hombros empuña la espada de la discriminación

junto a una rueda de fuego que simboliza el tiempo infinito y una caracola que

representa para él el sonido divino,

me postro,

Om


Mantra de cierre (Mangala Mantra):


Om

svasti prajābhyaḥ

paripālayantāṃ

nyāyyena mārgeṇa

mahīṃ mahīśāḥ

gobrāhmaṇebhyaḥ

śubhamastu nityaṃ

lokāḥ samastāḥ

sukhino bhavantu

Oṃ

śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ


Om

Pueda la prosperidad ser glorificada

Puedan los administradores regir el mundo con ley y justicia

Puedan todas las cosas sagradas ser protegidas

y pueda ser la gente del mundo ser próspera y feliz

Om.

Freeing the Breath

This first class focuses mainly on simple movements.  Which movements correspond with the inhale and which movements correspond with the exhale.  And some stretches to help free the breath. Good posture and proper use of the body are key to an optimum breath.


We finish by beginning our relationship to our own breath, just simply trying to feel it and get in touch with this most vital process.


Free your breath!

Belly Breathing

We are often given the instruction to breathe into our bellies. Why and what does this mean?


If we can breathe with this expansion of the belly, it means we are relaxed around the abdomen, not holding emotional history. It means our diaphragm is moving freely, causing pressure on the abdominal organs and creating this bulge.


Free your belly!


15 min

Use the Earth

This class starts with simple movements, designed with the breath and loosening restrictions around the breath.


Then we move to breathe on the floor lying on our stomachs.  We emphasize breathing into the stomach, using the ground to feel the pressure of the expansion.


Excellent for anxiety!


15 min
Yoga teacher performing yoga posture on green yoga mat on white background

Putting it Together

Developing the work we have started so far, we move between breathing on our backs and then our bellies and then child’s pose.  Although the posture changes the aim is the same, freeing our abdomen, letting go of emotional history.


Letting go!


15 min

Exhale Excellence

A good exhalation has such importance for our health and our mental well being.  After starting with some simple movement we begin to work with exhaling and relaxed pausing of the breath.


Exhale excellence!
