Integral

What is it?

Created by the philosophy of Master Swami Vivekananda, who was based at the foot of the Himalayas in India, we must to work with the three dimensions of the human being: body, mind and energy. Integral Yoga pays attention to all these aspects of the person during each class.

Integral Yoga is a practice that combines all aspects of classical yoga, beginning the practice in silence allowing the body to pause and start observing the breathing and the different tensions that may be present. And spending a few minutes at the beginning and at the end for meditation. This scheme of classical yoga allows us to go through the different techniques of Hatha, Gyan, Tantra and Kundalini Yoga.

Then we begin to stretch and activate the body with elongating, twisting and gentle movements to prepare and warm up the body through series of sun salutations and classic standing asanas. We bring awareness to the breathing and to the body during the whole practice, in order to keep us in a state of consciousness during the whole class.

We also perform asanas on the ground and soft invertions and finish with different specific breathing techniques, complete relaxation and silence.
