HATHA YOGA

Hatha Yoga is an Indian spiritual discipline that, with great scientific rigor, aims to break painful emotional fluctuations and to liberate the mind and the body from reacting to outside forces and pressures. This “liberation process,” or the overcoming all physical, emozional and physic attachments, is called SAMADHI and is the purpose of a practitioner of Hatha Yoga. To accomplish this, the human body is used as a fundamental tool, starting from its organic physiology to the subtle energy layers, through the practice of:

ASANA
Stable positions, adjusted to the degree of strenghts and flexibility of the practitioner, maintained over time. The length of the aisle allows the body to understand the vitality of the specific position, to open it by purifying and stimulating the most subtle energetic components.

MUDRA
Literally "seals" or "gestures" of the head, hands, feet, of the whole body that specifically activate sensitive energy areas, essential to allow the passage of "vital breaths".

BANDHA
Literally "contractions" or "closures" of the 3 fundamental diaphragms (perineum, thoracic diaphragm, larynx) in order to enhance the fundamental energy passages.

PRANAYAMA
A combination of respiratory and postural techniques that stimulate and regulate the flow of PRANA or vital "spirit" that gives birth to the subtle body and sustains the body.

MANTRA
Mantra's acting is crucial to making practice effective from a technical point of view (mantra vibration is intended to enhance physical-energetic work promoted by positions). It also provides a foundation for meditation or the process of "sedation" of active thinking.

RELAXATION
Through the established posture of the "corpse" (SHAVASANA), full awareness of the psycho-physical- energetic work done during practice allows it to penetrate into deeper levels of being.
