As you read all the ways yoga improves your health, you probably noticed a lot of overlap. That is because they are intensely interwoven. When you change your posture, you change the way you breathe, and when you change your breathing, you change your nervous system. This is one of the great lessons of yoga.
Everything is connected, your hipbone to your anklebone, you to your community, your community to the world. This interconnection is vital to understanding yoga. This holistic system simultaneously taps into many mechanisms that have additive and even multiplicative effects. This synergy may be the most important way of all that yoga heals.
Pranayama is the formal practice of controlling the breath. This breathwork is the founding principle behind all styles of yoga taught in order to improve one's yoga practice, staying connected and being mindful.
This style of yoga takes on the principles of the traditional roots of yoga. Asanas (postures) are held for longer periods of time teaching the practice with purpose and mindfulness. The sequence looks at opening all energy points while maintaining a calm and steady pace with the breath throughout this practice. Hatha yoga is grounding and promotes the practice of the union in mind, body, and spirit.
The program includes an excursion to a local historic Italian village, as well as a classical music concert.
