My idea is to share with you my own mindfulness explorations and to be leading you, inspiring you smindfully into stillness.
AnapnoeYoga® is a slow, gentle, grounding yet deeply strengthening Yoga practice that encourages the fluidity of the spine and the unfolding of the body-mind into stillness, silence, and presence.
Through deep long breathing, we explore the divine wisdom of nature that lies within our body-mind. Cultivating internal stillness in movement & breath awareness we liberate one’s body-mind from deep-rooted imprints: the body becomes supple and we become more receptive, more aware.
In these ten days, we will focus on the Yin-Lunar aspect of this practice which stimulates and heals the connective tissues. It works the deeper levels of the body-mind the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and balances the energetic channels, meridians, nerves, and blood circulation system.
Yin Yoga is a healing Practice characterised by the long-held, passive nature of the posture which gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, into the meditative aspects of yoga. A bridge to living life consciously. Through this Yin Yoga practice, we become more receptive, finding our body’s natural movement, expression. We explore internal movement in stillness and stillness within the meditative movement.
Anapnoe Yin Rasa Yoga
Rasa is a Sanskrit term meaning “sap,” “essence” or “fluid.” In the spiritual tradition, this term refers to the essence of human experience; the emotions that govern human life. Tantric belief identifies nine basic human emotions. In the practice of yoga, however, only three of these Rasas are considered to be fundamental: the Vira rasa (refers to the power of controlling the breath, mind and body), the Shanti rasa (refers to the serenity of equilibrium) and the Sringara rasa (refers to the spiritual and physical unity achieved through yoga).
Anapnoe Yin Rasa Yoga is a Yin style Yoga practice, mainly mat practice- to release tension-, where we integrate pranayama and concentration. We move slowly through long deep breathing and a wide range of asanas, transitioning gracefully with the breath (like in vinyasa) from one posture to the next. We learn how to surrender into gravity and relaxation to open the body (staying in our limits rather than forcing the body) and move into advanced asanas without tension and much awareness. Through this practice our physical body heals and transforms into a supple one, our breath deepens and our mind becomes peaceful. We become more receptive in nature. We cultivate awareness through the body and stillness within movement.
We will practice Breathwork, joint clearing, and meditation in the morning . In the late afternoon, we will practice Yin Yoga & meditation.
