Internal strength to maintain the balance of opposites: this is Hatha yoga, whose name is composed of "ha" and "tha", that is, sun and moon. The goal is to fortify the body and then relax it with deep stretches. Through dynamic Vinyasa yoga the individual movements are accompanied by correct breathing that allows you to move fluidly from one asana to another (the yoga positions). This restores a feeling of calm for the soul and new energy for the body. This not only stimulates the mind, but also relaxes all the muscles of the body. Experience this at Marlena and participate in Hatha-Vinyasa yoga meetings with Debora Costa, a certified teacher specialized in Hatha yoga and with a deep knowledge of Integral yoga.
"Yoga teaches unity: the measure of all things is not man but nature as a whole."

What is yoga? Yoga is a holistic science that originated in India thousands of years ago. It represents the oldest method in the world to find harmony between body, mind and nature through observation, respect and knowledge of the environment. Action, love and intelligence are the various forms of strength of a healthy body and find balance through the interaction of yoga asana, Pranayama and meditation practices. Yoga must be tried and exercised in order to achieve positive effects. It is a way to understand our true inner self, find out "who we are" and go beyond the false and hollow ego.
The term "Pranayama" is composed of Prana (life force) and Ayama (control) and can be explained as "conscious extension and regulation of the breath". Breath control yoga techniques help dissolve energy blockages in the body and spirit, relax the nervous system and prevent stress, problems with insomnia, high blood pressure ... In addition, deep breaths help you reach inner peace.
"Asana" is the Sanskrit term for position or posture and means "a comfortable position to be assumed for a long period of time". Many asanas derive from natural movements or postures of animals and are therefore indicated by their name. This practice has a positive effect on muscles, joints, breathing, the heart, circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems as well as on mind, psyche and chakra and promotes inner peace and serenity.
The practice of meditation enhances the ability to concentrate, reduces stress and leads to inner peace. The feeling of deep relaxation expands, self-confidence increases, you feel fit and full of vitality, able to face daily challenges with greater serenity.
