Practicing yoga in a studio with candles, incense and music is great, but nothing compares to exercising outside and being able to breathe the fresh air, feel the last rays of the sun on our skin and listen to the soft rustle of the leaves.
We ended up testing a vegan pasty and a glass of red wine after the yoga session gathering.
Practicar yoga en un estudio con velas, incienso y música es genial, pero nada se compara con hacer ejercicio al aire libre y poder respirar el aire puro, sentir los últimos rayos del sol en nuestra piel y escuchar el suave susurro de las hojas.
Termiremos degustando una empanada vegana y una copa de vino tinto para socializar.
Hatha Flow is a classic set of Hatha poses that flow from one to the other with a few pauses for further instruction and teacher demonstration. Hatha yoga aims to achieve a balance between male and female energies through the use of postures that seek to find the balance between strength and flexibility.
The synchronization of conscious breathing and body movement promotes stress reduction and purification of the mind. Other benefits of practicing atha yoga include strengthening and toning muscles, facilitating digestion, improving organ function, and promoting sleep. It improves the immune system with the contractions and stretches of the muscles and the movement of the organs, helping the lymphatic system to eliminate toxins from the body.
It tones our spinal column, which connects the nerves with different organs and with the brain system. Increases flexibility by favoring cells that bind muscle fibre. Improve our daily posture with the realignment of our back. Relaxes and centers the mind helping us to be present and happy. And it fills us with energy.
Yin yoga class usually consists 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, while expanding flexibility and invigorating the energy centers of the body (nadis), blockages are released and your energy flow increases. Yin yoga focuses on static movement, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. The primary differences between yin yoga and many others forms of yoga is that you are encouraged not to use your muscles and passive poses are held for up to 5 minutes, sometime longer. This flow of energy through the body in chinese medicine is referred to as chi and in Yin yoga philosophy as prana. This energy travels through pathways in the body referred to as meridians. It is thought in yin yoga the chi runs through the connective tissue in the body (meridians/pathway).
