Cyclical nature of life-death-life

Description     More info

Hatha Yoga and organic movement This session is a tribute to Nature and its cycles, to the seasons of the year, day and night, Life-Death-Life from a circular conception. At the physical level, it is made up of static and dynamic asanas (yoga postures), which are intended to tone, make and strengthen the body in general in a dynamic and pleasant way. The session consists of a series of asanas, deep relaxation, and a meditative practice: a heavenly communication. This meditation technique comes from the Kundalini Yoga tradition, and integrates the chanting of mantras, mudras and movement.

Another rolled up mat Under the buttocks Close the eyes Watch from inside As your body inhales and exhales How this process occurs naturally Spontaneous you don't have to do anything it just happens let's make a special emphasis On each exhalation In letting go of the body from the inside Tensions of the body On each inhalation Let's try to align a little bit more the spine growing towards the sky as taking an impulse of life From Earth Observe if there are tensions in your body that you don't need at this moment simply letting them go Offering them a small death to open space That something new may arise New spaces in your body New places On your next exhalation, tilt the pelvis backwards rounding up the inhaling spine tilting the pelvis forward opening the chest bringing the hands to the center of the pelvis

heart on the exhalation and on the inhale opening the arms Opening your chest by bringing your hands slightly backwards Exhaling round your spine inhaling take impulse from the pelvis Opening your chest by opening your arms Watching your body contraction and expansion The exhalation and the inhalation And how they follow each other One after the other in constant cyclic nature working hands on knees Continues Doing spinal flexions Opening your chest on the inhalation exhaling while rounding your spine And on your next inhalation align the spine in the center bringing the arms towards the sky And exhaling turn the torso towards the left knee

Lowering the hands to the knee And as a base Your body to make a smooth twist Inhaling carry the arms Towards the sky twisting Your body to the other side Lower your hands, one hand acts as a base, the other one propels your body in the twist And once more inhaling to the center exhaling gently twist your spine and on your next exhalation Put your hands down to your knees Bringing your attention to your shoulders begin to make wide circles inhaling when the shoulders They go in front and up exhaling behind and down with a slight Gentle and comfortable swaying of your torso that accompanies the movement
