THE MAJESTY OF BREATHING IN THE FLUID YOGA PRACTICE: VINYASA AND PRANAYAMA
“… pranayama is the heart of Yoga, Since pranayama lengthens the time taken by each inhalation and exhalation, thus slowing down the aging process, its practice gives a longer and healthier
life …. Pranayama helps to normalize the size of the pulmonary alveoli that tend to absorb less oxygen in the course of life.Pranayama helps to normalize its size and circulates the red blood cells in all parts of the body, infusing life and vigor, helping to delay the process of senescence … “B.K.S. Iyengar
Pranayama is one of the four fundamental principles of yoga. Prana, our vital energy, which spreads through our body and fills us with new energy. That energy that we continuously disperse in our daily life instead of preserving it.
Pranayama allows us to generate new energy, through different techniques, increasing or decreasing the fire, raising or lowering the temperature, in support to the moment we are living.
VINYASA is a form of fluid yoga, where primary importance is given to pranayama, to breathing, which must support us and lead us to inner perceptions throughout our practice. Through it we are able to connect completely with the movement and to make our practice a real Yoga practice and not a form of gymnastics or stretching. Breathing allows our body to carry oxygen, this allows the yoga practitioner to continuously oxygenate their tissues, organs, muscles. This connection allows our mind to be oxygenated, to eliminate thoughts and ruminations, to create space and free those who in yoga are called Siddhi (spiritual or psychic abilities), the powers linked to the connection with the self, intuition and clairvoyance. (clairvoyance: vision, ability to have a clear vision of our journey) This makes yoga a practice where you do not feel the fatigue at the end of the lesson but a sense of renewed energy and total contentment.
In this training we will work on the importance of always introducing the control of pranayama into one’s own classes or practice.
The program includes:
The vinyasa par excellence: Surya namaskar A / B / C and the correct breathing in their execution How to create a vinyasa starting from the Surya Namaskar
Vinyasa for beginner and intermediate classes: the most used asanas
The importance of pranayama: 12 pranayama techniques
Learn to coordinate the breath with vinyasa: listening to the self
Philosophy of yoga, the last four stages of the Ashtanga philosophy according to Patanjali: Pranayama / pratyahara / dharana / dhyana and samadhi (that is, what moves from pranayama onwards to the connection with the self)
Philosophy of yoga: history of modern yoga and history of the origins of samkhya yoga Philosophy: the powers of the mind through the nun yoga of Patanjali and samkhya yoga
