The Yoga we offer is Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga and Hatha Yoga. The classes are designed for everyone.
Ashtanga Yoga Inspired
Ashtanga yoga is the traditional way that yoga was taught by Sri Pattabhi Jois in Mysore India, and nowadays by his grandson R. Sharath Jois and his daughter Saraswati Rangaswamy.
In this yoga style students learn the fixed order of postures, building one by one from the previous posture as an assisted self-practice with hand on adjustments.
Our mission in our yoga retreats in Malaga, Spain is to teach yoga to the students individually as part of a group, using the ashtanga yoga method which is characterized by its therapeutic and progressive set sequences of postures. Giving the participants of the retreats the chance to learn this practice of ashtanga yoga whether they are beginner or advance, according to their ability. We believe in going deeper in the yoga poses instead of going faster and doing more.
Please note that we do not teach mysore style, which is the traditional way to learn ashtanga yoga. We teach the class as a led yoga class, following the poses from the primary series but explaining the poses with more detail, so the pace is slower, giving you the time to get all the extra breath you could need to achieve the posture in a correct and safe way to prevent injuries.
After the Yoga Retreat you will be able to understand the connection between the breath and the movement, which is know as Vinyasa, For each movement, there is one breath, and the combination of the asanas with movement and breath will create heat to make your body sweat, and more flexible . Also you will feel more concentration since you will learn the Dristhi for every yoga pose (Dristhi is the place where you look while in the asana) and the Bandhas, that are the energy locks to keep your body light and strong. Finally you will learn the name of the poses in Sanskrit and in English.
If you have been practicing Power Yoga or Vinyasa Flow for several years, you will recognize many of the poses, but you will create an strong foundation to start building your own yoga practice at home, or perhaps joining a mysore program in your city. And if you are a total beginner in yoga this is a great introduction thanks to all the detail that the teachers give to every pose. You will be able to follow any ashtanga yoga class wherever you go, since each class follows this same sequence of poses.
Practicing the same pose day after day will make you gain more insights. The more you repeat an asana the deeper you will go.
Ashtanga means “eight-limbed,” and traditionally the term refers to a yoga practice that includes all eight limbs: yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. You will discover how throught the practice of ashtanga yoga in the mat you will experience not only the asana as a limb but all the other limbs together to complete a yoga philosophy.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of Yoga with poses, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—five minutes or longer per pose is typical. It is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang. In the body the relatively stiff connective tissues ( tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang. A Yin Yoga class usually consist of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body-the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Yin Yoga is a perfect combination with your ashtanga vinyasa yoga classes in the mornings.
This is a more restorative, softer form of Yoga, Hatha Yoga refers to the practise of bringing balance to the two main energies in the body-the energy of the moon and the energy of the sun. Ha means sun and tha means moon, this is a translation from the Indian Sanskrit and refers to the balance of day/ night, male/ female, Ying/Yang. Hatha Yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to the breath,which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment. Hatha yoga is a generic term that refers to any type of yoga that teaches physical poses.
