"Then, the Seer is re-established in its true nature"
Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.3
What have you heard about Yoga?
That it helps with physical needs? It fulfils the wish for a healthier, more flexible and stronger body? Maybe that it helps the mental state? It can help reduce stress, tension, and also symptoms of depression. Or that it might be just about spiritual growth? It encourages a thirst for knowledge about the Self, leading to a sense of fulfillment?
Well, the beauty of Yoga is that it combines all the above, to create a holistic experience.
Working on the physical, mental and emotional level, we acquire tools to develop peace and awareness in our life.
What kind of Yoga is that?
Vini (Vinyasa) Yoga is a soft and meditative style of yoga. The founding father of this tradition is Sri T Krishnamacharya, the teacher of teachers. Among his most learned disciples was BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois (Myisur Ashtanga), A.G Mohan, Indra devi (first western yogini) and TKV Desikachar - the son and hier of T Krishnamacharya.
Vini Yoga entails the student's yoga practice being tailored to his/her own unique characteristics. The practice starts from where the student is right now, taking him/her step by step towards the goal, through a comfortable effort, with breath as the guide. This Yoga references ancient texts such as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the Hatha Yoga Pradipica, the Bhagvad Gita and the Yoga Rhasya. It applies the great wisdom found in the scriptures, to the practical side of the world we occupy.
We hold both the lock and the key - Freedom is in our hands.
Inspired by Vini Yoga, Freedom Yoga is designed to assist us in finding our inner freedom
and a peaceful place through a stable and comfortable body and a calm and clear mind.
The practice combines conscious, dynamic movement with soft breath work and ancient wisdom of Yoga Philosophy. All through a comfortable effort, step by step towards the goal (Vinyasa krama).
Each session include: Asanas (poses), Pranayama (cultivating Prana, life energy, through breath regulation), Shavasana (guided relaxation).
