NEW PACKAGES, YOGA AND SURF

DON’T MISS OUT!

At Paraiso yoga shala, we believe in yoga as a way of living. Each of the yoga styles taught at the studio respond to a particular way of focus in yoga, giving the student the possibility of finding the style that is suited best to his or her own individuality.

To applaud yoga for its physical benefits alone would only diminish what this entire system has to offer as a whole. By practicing yoga on a regular basis, you may be surprised to find that you’re building much more than a strong, flexible body.

Yoga Styles

Hatha Yoga

It acts progressively developing in those who practiced it the principles of Sthira and Sukha (strength and flexibility, consistency and convenience), achieving a healthy body as a whole. Through the practice of asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) Hatha Yoga balances body, mind and emotions returning to its natural state of welfare.

Ashtanga

This form of yoga is intensely physical and athletic. In America, “Ashtanga Yoga” most often refers to the system taught by Indian yoga master K. Pattabhi Jois and comprises a precise series of poses done in sequential order, linked together with the breath, using bandhas (locks), and concentrate on singular points using drishti (gaze) in asanas. In class, you’ll be led nonstop through one or more of the series and you’ll be encouraged to breathe as you move from pose to pose.

Yin Yoga

Much of the yoga that we practice in North America is a Yang in nature. It is active, creates heat in the body, and engages muscle strength. By contrast, Yin Yoga is slow and steady with a sense of calm and surrender. This is not to say it is easy. The yin areas of the body generally targeted in the practice are between the knees and navel, the lower body. Since poses are held for a long period of time (usually at least four minutes) to target deep ligaments and connective tissues , there are fewer poses that one can even attempt in one session, compared to the yang styles of yoga where one pose may be held for as little as five breaths.

There are 3 main principles in Yin Yoga that we apply in the practice:

  • Come to Your Appropriate Edge
  • Be still and allow muscles to be soft
  • Hold each shape for a period of time

In Yin flow class we will start by unwinding the body with breath led movement and drift off into deep yin relaxation… we work on a subtle level to awaken the senses with aromatherapy and music. Beginner and advanced students are welcome!

Vinyasa Flow

Breath and movement are synchronized within and between asanas.

“Vinyasa” comes from the Sanksrit “nyasa” which means “to place” and the prefix “vi”, ” in a special way” – as in the arrangement of notes in a song, the steps along a path to the top of a mountain, or the linking of one asana to the next.

In the Yoga world, the most common understanding of “vinyasa” is as a flowing sequence of specific asanas coordinated with the movements of the breath. In Vinyasa Flow breath is given primacy – asanas form around the breath- and we move into the flow of awareness, internalization, concentration or action within and between asanas, soothing and harmonizing the mind.

Power Yoga

Power Yoga is about working hard sensitively. It’s about feeling good, not just looking good. The tone and shapeliness you attain from this work is a by-product. The focus here is balance and healing, focusing on a deep ujjai breath.

SUP yoga

A different, challenging, yet FUN way to learn to ground while afloat. SUP yoga requires a different quality of focus – not just when you’re doing the poses but also when you’re transitioning between them.
