Yoga was created in India, a long time ago, and aims for the overall harmony of the Being. The term “yoga” refers to the idea of a link between two interdependent parties, one of which would be immediately comprehensible, the other one remaining hard to decipher.
Ashtanga Yoga: a lot more energetic than Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga requires strength and stamina since this method works on synchronicity between the breathing and a flow of progressive poses, respecting the sequence’s rhythm.
Yin Yoga : It is the type of Yoga that holds each pose for the longest time, with long moments of relaxation and focus in between each pose. When practiced regularly, it works on breathing, flexibility and strengthening deep muscles.
I settle on my mat, cut off any source of distraction.
I take a moment to ground myself and let go of any thoughts and activities related to the day.
I need to synchronize my movements with my breathing and I can start my session.
I need to be aware of my breathing throughout the flow by breathing through the nose.
You’re ready to start! Practicing yoga is becoming your own artist, it’s taking control over your mind’s energy and putting it at the service of your body and life.
