DIFFERENT STYLES OF YOGA : Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga
Hatha Yoga is ideal for approaching the world of yoga and for learning the basic positions before moving on to a more dynamic and complex yoga style; Yin Yoga focuses on bodies connective tissues. It aims to balance the free flow of Prana between the chakras of the body, to heal the meridians and organs, while calming moods and giving a state of wellness and peace. Vinyasa yoga, on the other hand, is one of the most dynamic styles of yoga. In vinyasa the movement is synchronized with the breath. This connection between movement and breathing leads the practitioner to be totally present during the practice.
It is a dynamic sequence of 12 positions or Asana, to be performed in a fluid movement, as if it were a choreography, supported by breathing. Each opening of the body corresponds to an inhalation and to each closure an exhalation. Breathing is carried out using only the nostrils, with the mouth closed and the jaws relaxed: inhale through the nose and exhale through the nose.
For yoga fusion we mean a mix of traditional yoga positions incorporated with another form of fitness, such as Pilates or resistance training. This fusion of techniques focuses on combining mind and body exercises with the benefits of strength, aerobics, balance and flexibility involving all major muscle groups. Yoga fusion workouts therefore offer the mental and spiritual benefits of yoga, while working on the strength and endurance of the body as a whole. Unlike traditional yoga, yoga fusion workouts change constantly due to the large amount of exercises that can be created by combining two types of fitness.
Called Chandra Namaskara in Sanskrit, the moon salutation, like the sun salutation, is one of the most famous yoga asanas thanks to its countless benefits, especially because it acts as a rebalancer of the energies of our body, improving the quality of sleep.

Master Shizuto Masunaga was one of the founders of modern Shiatsu. Considering the 12 pairs of main meridians (energy channels), he devised sequences of exercises focused on stretching to keep the energy flow of Qi (energy) flowing throughout the body. The broad vision of meridian stretching is based on the law of the 5 elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), considering the exchanges that take place inside the energy channels while the seasons alternate outside, which in TCM become 5 with the late summer. Stretching the meridians maintains and improves not only physical but also psycho-emotional health of those who practice it. It reduces tension and leads the muscles crossed by the meridians to release blocked energy, the cause of disturbances and disharmonies. In addition, it brings beneficial changes, through the assumption of specific positions, in which you breathe slowly, consciously and intentionally. The immediate result at the end of the execution of each sequence is a sense of relaxation which, bringing balance to the energy channels, translates into greater vitality
Method of body re-organization and self-education through movement that leads to awareness of one's motor patterns. Designed by Moshe Feldenkrais, it offers the possibility to let go of bad motor habits. People suffering from back pain or other painful symptoms often approach this method, as well as those with neurological disorders, and those who want to reduce physical and emotional stress. It improves the interaction between self-image, thought and environment, offering a positive reflection on one's daily actions. Furthermore, it contributes to increasing sporting and artistic performances; for this reason it is chosen and practiced by athletes, actors, singers and dancers. The group lessons "C.A.M. to know oneself or awareness through movement" - performed with slow and pleasant movements - lead students to an organic learning, which takes place through the exploratory and not forced repetition of an action. At the end of the lesson the improvement is perceived with physical sensations - more lightness, length and rootedness, which are transmitted to the emotional sphere and to thought. In the individual lessons of "I.F. Functional integration", the teacher, through the gentle and non-invasive touch, guides the student to learn a new and more functional movement pattern.

MEDITATION IN THE NATURE
Pranayama is one of the eight angas (stages or limbs) of yoga. The term Pranayama literally means "expansion of the dimension of prana", that is the vital energy. The Prana is absorbed through food and drink but above all the breath. So the word Pranayama indicates the breathing techniques used by yoga and the method by which to absorb and direct the vital energy in the body, make the mind stable and reach a higher level of consciousness. Pranayama is also a functional method for preventing and treating many ailments with incredible therapeutic effectiveness (eg. it facilitates the elimination of toxins, improves blood and lymphatic circulation; optimizes the filtering action of the kidneys, etc.).
Iyengar yoga is known for its precision alignments and the use of supports. It was created and developed in the 20th century by B.K.S. Iyengar, who has the merit of being one of the first masters to spread this discipline in the West. The classes of this style are characterized by the execution of a few asanas, but held for a long time. In fact, according to him, in order to experience the greatest possible benefit of a position, it is necessary to maintain it for a long time. Only in this way can the benefits go deep.
