Anapnoe yoga practice is a transforming journey of experience, an approach to yoga as conscious evolution. It is a gentle, yet deeply grounding and strengthening Vinyasa yoga practice that encourages the fluidity of the spine. Through deep long breathing, you will explore the divine wisdom of nature that lies within. The movement and breath awareness liberates the body and mind from deep rooted imprints.
Through this Vinyasa yoga practice, you become more receptive, finding your body’s natural flow and expression as the movement unfolds from your core out in all directions. It is an integral practice that cultivates presence as an embodiment. The teaching of Anapnoe yoga is based upon the ancient Hatha yogic texts, which state that all fixed forms should be practiced with the aim to develop free organic movement, unfolding from within, as a necessary step in the cultivation of longevity.
The set forms and sequencing of Anapnoe yoga, or Vinyasa Krama, contain within them all groups of asana (body positions) and movements, such as standing, pumping, sitting, weighing, lying, and bending in all directions, s well as inverting, spiraling, turning, and twisting for the proper development and fluidity of the spine. All these, combined with suitable rhythmic breathing, bring about the unfolding of inner strength, harmony, and awareness of the self.
