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.

Wrist Mobility

Our wrists are such an essential part of our practice; they support our body weight in many of the postures we practice daily. This short class goes through different ways to strengthen our wrist and find true mobility, especially through wrist extension (the shape they are in during plank pose). This class is an excellent way to start any yoga practice, finding time to prepare your wrist before bearing weight.

Abs Series

This is the traditional Pilates Ab series that was taught in NYC by Pilates Protege Romana. It is a great 5 exercises that improve core strength while giving you a nice stretch in the lower body.


It’s a perfect example of using a two-way stretch from a strong center. Try to work your upper and lower body really long away from your center and you keep that rock solid to the mat :)

¡Twist!

Clase de Vinyasa centrada en las torsiones. Las torsiones tienen numerosos beneficios tanto físicos como mentales: estimulan el hígado y los riñones, mejoran la digestión, favorecen el rango de movimiento de la caja torácica y la flexibilidad de la columna, abren el cuello y los hombros, son purificantes en todos los sentidos, combaten el estrés y facilitan el equilibrio psíquico.


La manera de practicar este tipo de posturas es siempre el mismo: al inhalar creas extensión en la columna y en el torso, y al exhalar giras y llevas esa extensión hacia atrás. Es muy habitual que la postura se sienta completamente diferente en un lado y en el otro; por lo tanto, no des por hecho nada y entra en cada lado como si fuera la primera vez.

¡Disfruta de las torsiones y recuerda: inhala, alarga; exhala, tuerce!

¿Y si me caigo qué pasa?

El equilibrio es complicado. Las posturas de equilibrio son retadoras. Requieren fuerza, no sólo física sino también emocional. La mirada y la respiración tienen mucho que ver con el equilibrio. Tu mirada es tu equilibrio, tu concentración y tu intención, así que utiliza el poder de la mirada para mantenerte en equilibrio de una manera firme pero relajada al mismo tiempo. Y respira, respira profundamente. Una respiración profunda y suave, sin agresividad y sin violencia será la mejor compañera de viaje.


Y sí, puede que te caigas pero ¿sabes?, no pasa nada. Puedes volver a intentarlo una y otra vez, hoy y mañana. Al fin y al cabo, tienes toda la vida para intentarlo.
