Hatha yoga is the foundation of all types of yoga. These classical yoga postures, which are held static for a period of time in order to experience their benefits, form the very core of any practice and participants are encouraged to explore the asanas at different levels.
Vinyasa is synchronization of movement and breath. It was first developed by Rishi Vaman somewhere between 500 and 1500 AD for the Grihastha, meaning a common family man. Vinyasa yoga is a series of postures weaved into each other to create a flowing practice. This beautiful practice aims to increase metabolism and develop focus and awareness through movement and breath coordination. Your teachers endeavour to bring out this potential in each individual through their practice.
Oceanic Yoga also recognizes the importance of pranayama in one's daily life. Pranayama is the science of manipulating and regulating your breath to be able to efficiently balance your prana or vital life force which is important for your physical, mental and spiritual well being. Teachers focus on first helping the participants understand and correct their breathing patterns.
Slowly, as awareness develops, they introduce you to the myriad world of pranayama: cleansing breaths to remove physical, mental, and emotional toxins, cooling breaths to bring about calm, balanced and harmonic breaths along with chanting pranayama to bring about a state of inner and outer equilibrium.
With this awareness of breath, you will move towards the subtle aspects of the mind through meditation. Through dynamic, walking, guided, and silent meditations you will explore the realms of meditation.
Oceanic Yoga expects that everybody should be physically fit to practice yoga, walk, and meditate. Also, anybody who is interested in achieving good health by yoga and meditation is also a good candidate.
