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.

Traditional Hatha Class

This is a very traditional Hatha Class. The poses are more static, we hold them for longer. Rather than flowing between poses, we rest between each posture. The purpose is to become more meditative and work on allowing the best flow of energy. Less instruction on the breath and more about observing sensations.

Very relaxing, very calming for the body, brain, and nervous system.

Yoga Roll

Build strength on the upper body with this Ladder Flow. We'll energize the arms and the back with postures like downward facing dog, plank pose, and chaturanga. Arms are very important to our practice, and sometimes it's hard to get them stronger, but with this sequence, you'll definetely feel them by the end of the class. 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. Downward facing dog is a crucial posture for every practice and specially for our ladder flows because they're a significant link between rounds and also it engages the all muscles of our body (you'll seel we'll practice it a lot!!). Join me on the mat!!
60 min

Twisted Twist

Challenge the body and the mind with this ladder flow where we'll open the hips, but we'll also build strength in our arms, legs, and core. Hips stock all our emotions and sometimes we forget to give them the right stretch to release tension from them. They're also very important to achieve postures as "Hanumanasana", where we need to have our hips open and relaxed. As in all of our Ladder Flows, we'll do 5 rounds in total, adding one or two new movements per round. I promise that by the end of the fifth round of this Ladder Flow you'll feel your hips much more open as well as the entire body energized and much more stronger.
50 min

Dive to Starfish Pose

Build strength in the entire body with this 50min Ladder Flow. In every round, we'll add one or two new movements that will allow our minds and bodies to get deep into the posture. We'll go from simple postures that will open our hips to fly into vasistasana trying to get our starfish pose with a leg up and finally finding strength in the ankle and leg while seeking for balance in our Half Moon pose. All of this linked by our vinyasas or sun salutations between each round to build heat and get our moving meditation. Have fun and sweaty and join me on the mat!

Shoulder Love

This short class is all about getting your shoulders moving in all directions. Move into protraction, retraction, elevation, depression, internal rotation, and external rotation. Having healthy shoulders means being able to move them with awareness through their full range of motion. In other words, get ready to give some love to your shoulders.
