Tibetan and Hatha yoga

Tibetan or Hatha yoga is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing us for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.

At La Casa de Loto we focus a lot on the breath, trying to create a flow of energy during the classes to help release mental and physical blockages. Yoga here is on the spiritual side of it more than the physical one. It is instructed mostly by Mauricio. He teaches yoga for more than 20 years and lives on a solitary mountain retreat dedicated to practicing for ten years.

Noble Silence

You will allow silence and the calmness to penetrate your flesh and bones. You will allow the energy of mindfulness to penetrate your body and mind. You will walk, meditate, read, write, study, or do anything else that pleases you, in silence.

All will be done with pure awareness of just this one task. You will breathe deeply and enjoy the stillness and the freshness. You will stay alone outside with the trees, the river, the lake, and the animals, go for walks, or use the rooms to relax. It is needed that everyone participates in this practice for it to be deep and joyful.

Single pointed Lamrim meditations

The lamrim or the “graduated path” is a presentation of Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings that details the stages in the complete path to enlightenment. In the single-pointed Lamrim meditation, you will focus your mind on one single object at a time and walk through the various stages to liberation. Lama Zopa Rinpoche has recently given new advice suggesting that students follow a lamrim outline and meditate on each subject for two weeks or one month until all subjects have been completed.

Rinpoche advised “The amount of time for meditation is up to the individual, but the general advice is to finish the lamrim in one year”. Depending on the duration of your stay, you will be introduced to one or various meditations and teach you how to continue this beautiful path.
