In the language of sanskrit, ha means sun, and tha means moon. The practice of Hatha yoga is the unification of opposites - of the sun and the moon, of the body and the mind. Hatha is the physical component of yoga, practicing body poses or asanas, and the root of all other types of yoga. It’s a quiet, restful practice, incorporating mild physical exercises with breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation.
It allows the individual practicing to learn more about oneself, providing resources to resolve everyday situations, overcoming physical, mental, and emotional limits.
Vi means to go or to move, Nyasa means placing or planting. The union of these two words equals going through movement in coordination with the breath. Vinyasa yoga is derived from Hatha yoga. In this practice, sequences of postures are performed where one movement is harmonious and dynamically linked to the next through breath. It is a demanding practice that increases body heat, muscle strength and stimulates joint structures.
Continuous sessions condition the body for further progress in practice, enhancing performance, strength, and self-efficacy. Vinyasa yoga resembles a moving meditation, increasing consciousness of the body, linking the interior and the exterior, and helping you understand that people are all one.
Ashtanga is a type of yoga based on a series of progressive positions (Vinyasa) synchronized with Ujjayi breathing. This type of breath builds an internal heat within the body, encouraging the body to sweat and detoxify the muscles and organs. Practiced in dynamic and coordinated movements, the Asanas and the breathing techniques aim to purify the body emotionally, physically, and mentally.
The literal translation of Ashtanga yoga means eight-limbed yoga and follows the eight ancient spiritual pathways to internal purification: yama (moral codes), niyama (self-purification and study), asana (posture), pranayama (control of breath), pratyahara (control of the senses), dhahran (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (absorption into the universal self).
In Aero Yoga, you perform traditional (as well as non-traditional) yoga movements while suspended from a safe and strong swing. The swing facilitates movement of the body and allows positions to be done in a smooth and controlled manner, helping to gain a better understanding of our body and its limitations. Aero yoga benefits the whole body. Muscles, joints, spine, and posture, are utilized as you gain strength and flexibility.
Working without the resistance of gravity provides a lifting effect; meanwhile, the swing provides a sense of liberation and creativity. It is a rejuvenating and detoxifying experience that can improve your internal health.
Based on traditional Chinese medicine, these simple stretches stimulate the body, facilitate organ functions, and increase energy. It is, in itself, an exercise and therapy. While stretching the body, you are deeply working the meridians, which are energy pathways that lead life to your cells throughout the body.The practice promotes blood supply to the muscles, improving their tone, and unlocks contractions and stress leading to relaxation.
Meridian stretching helps to eliminate excessive muscular tension and causes a pleasant feeling of expansion throughout the body. This improves joint mobility and body awareness, and reduces the risk of injury.
These are a group of exercises that, if done daily, can act as an excellent anti-age tool. The origin of these exercises is ancient, yet they have prevailed through time and are utilized in several cultures cultures. Practicing the five rites, a treasure from Eastern wisdom, is one of the ways by which any human being can start to develop their internal elixir or as the ancient Taoist alchemists used to call it, the greatness of your soul.

David has always been convinced that his way was to help people find their own external and internal balance, although at first he did not know how. After high school, he looked for a new way to study, where he could find the tools to better understand himself and people around him. Naturopathy has been a revelation to Davide. His life changed and he knew that this was his path and there was no turning back. But he found his real passion in shiatsu (master of the school of naturopathy).
Since Maria was a little girl, equality between people was a matter of vital importance for her. Being able to help the unprivileged has always been the best satisfaction she could get from life. In order to achieve this goal, Maria studied law, embracing the rights of the less privileged. Maria traveled the world, owned a business, but especially and above all, her greatest interest was the human being and his minimum health and wellness conditions. This feeling gets stronger each day and turned Maria to the techniques that accompany her today on her way as a therapist and yoga instructor.

"Toque Holistico has the best ambiance of any yoga studio I have ever been in. Just imagine laying on your mat listening to the crashing waves and smelling salt in the air. It really is incredible. The huge windows are left open during class and the ocean breeze fills the room. "
"The owners of the studio and the instructors are so welcoming and professional. It is clear that they put their hearts and souls in to making the experience inclusive and positive for all yogis. After travelling solo for a month I was really craving community and some serious healing. Toque Holistico helped me restore my body and mind. I am so thankful I went to the studio."

"I am amazed. Not only by the center, but by its founders and classes. What they offer here is truly life changing. Eight months ago I went to my first class and I have not stopped since. They offer an array of different classes and seminars. I couldn't decide which I wanted more so I decide to try them all! I spend anywhere from two to three hours a day here and all I can say is it has drastically and holistically changed my life, my being, my sense of self, and my perspective on life. From yoga to stretching, shiatsu, aero Pilates, aero fitness and aero yoga. I have been able to get in shape mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I have grown as a person and I no longer have difficulty sleeping, I no longer feel stressed at work and I feel more concentrated and empowered in all aspects of life. I highly recommend this place. With its ocean front view and serene wave sounds, you can truly lose yourself and find yourself all at the same time."
