Integral Yoga what type of yoga is it?

 Hatha Yoga to challenge Mind and Body 

Sivananda is a traditional school of Hatha yoga which offers a comprehensive approach comprising philosophy, psychology, spirituality and physiology.  
It is based on breathing (Prayanamas), Asanas (postures), relaxation and meditation including the marma points self-massage. It involves working deeply in the different layers of the body.
The rhythm, speed and the difficulties of the asanas vary according to the strength, balance and flexibility of each individual. The teaching follows a progression of sequences of postures and the benefits are quickly noticeable: toning muscles, sleeping better, losing weight, increasing concentration, managing hormonal levels, re-educating bowel movements... Feeling calmer & happier.

It is your journey, each time on the mat you discover a bit more about yourself!

Working on  the Endocrine system for Men & Women!

Yoga can help in regaining energy and vitality during the various phases of life when the hormone level is changing with age, stress etc. The fluctuation of the hormone level improves with a regular practice of this specific Yoga.
Not only does it have an impact on the endocrine system but also on important organs such as the kidney and liver.
I offer a comprehensive set of sequences which combine asanas and prayanama that I have tested for you (endometriosis, prolapse, but I went through menopause with no problems) 
I have been inspired by the work of Dinah Rodriguez which is well known amongst endocrinologists in Brazil and Europe.

You will gain a happy mind in a healthier body
regardless of what others can see!

Gentle Yoga for temporary or permanent physical issues 
or are you simply feeling unfit and stiff?

It is adapted to your needs. The sequences help you build up strength, flexibility but more importantly confidence and awareness of your body. If necessary it can be done seated on a chair, gentle yoga helps in many ways including with arthritis, poor circulation and weight problems. Your progress will make you feel so much better with less sleeping disorders, less pain and discomfort in your body.  In small groups or one to one.

Let Go

Have you thought of a one to one?

Anyone could have an individual class to assess his/her postures and to be adjusted accordingly and it works on zoom as well!
A 1-2-1 is for building a good foundation to work safely thereafter with a body well aligned and balanced. You develop a deep understanding of your own real possibilities.
A 1-2-1 is a good way to release tension in the muscles and deep tissues after physical and mental trauma because we have more time to take into consideration all your symptoms and injuries. 


 

All classes provide the therapeutic effects of yoga combined with an osteopathic approach

I have deepened my personal practice and teaching by studying a special programme created by yoga teachers and an osteopath who has been teaching yoga for 35 years.

Union of Mind & Body

How to become responsible for your life with Yoga? 
Swami Vishnu Devananda compared our Body & Mind  with a car...

The 5 important points are:

- Asanas are the maintenance practice to keep the body healthy and fit

- Breathing is the engine the lungs are the vital organs in our body

- Relaxing is the radiator keeping cool in order to avoid burn out

- Diet is the fuel food provides the source of energy and gives vitality

- Positive thinking is having a careful and respectful attitude developing a positive way of thinking to be happier
