“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit“

B.K.S. Iyengar

Each person is mechanically organized differently and the body has the capacity for self-regulation. Under this premise, Therapeutic Yoga is based on knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body to adapt the asanas or poses (of Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga) to the biomechanical characteristics of the person who practices it, helping with supports or props.

The poses or asanas are holding in a relaxed way between 1 – 3 minutes, or even more, for allowing us to go deeper into the asana, while we give space for emotions to arise, calm the mind and we stimulate the prana (vital energy). These poses are combined with simple exercises to activate the muscles to be strengthened.

The classes are gentle, where the muscles are strengthened and the deeper tissues are stretched, stimulated and rejuvenated: the connective tissues (fascia, ligaments, tendons, joints and synovial fluid).

The yoga pose is not the goal. Becoming flexible is not the goal. Standing on your hands is not the goal. The goal is to create space where you were once stuck. To unveil the layers of protection you’ve built around your heart. To appreciate your body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. To make peace with whom you are.

Geeta Iyengar

The dynamic of Kivnois is a combination of some Vinyasa yoga asanas, or energy yoga, with complementary toning up body exercises, synchronized in a fluid and dynamic way.

Through a conscious and synchronized breathing, the asanas are holding in less time, creating a dynamic movement of the body, becoming a dance: in each inhalation and exhalation a specific movement is created, where the energy flows.

The guided classes are flexible and varied, focused on strengthening muscles, gaining flexibility and balance. I observe and adjust, while we follow the prepared sequence. In all of them, we start with a previous stretching, breathing exercises or Pranayama and Shavasana or relaxation pose, at the end.

The practice of yoga is an excellent tool to gain greater physical and mental strength, to improve our postural hygiene, to reduce physical pain or prevent it and to reconnect with oneself, through a meditation in movement.

It’s a body-mind dialogue, following the principles of: Prevention, Attention and Well-being
