The Short Version – to empower people – an up to 90min Class
In this version of the Virabhadra Namaskar Workshop, we work on the transitions between the three Virabadrasanas Variation and the reverse warior.
For the preparation, we have a start in sitting position, with some breath and energy work (Pranayamas as usual in all my classes), some stretching and traction for bones and muscles, then we go to straight the point.
The preparation for the Asanas in themselves are the Asanas in itself, with Focus on the needed attitude, we use the very moment of performance. Something very simple, difficult is just the permanence in the posture. Some standing postures in between to allow body and mind not to get stressed with possible challenges of the permanence.
At the end, we all will enjoy a good relaxation, and Breathing Meditation.
For Vinyasa lovers and Gyms addicted, it’s a good sequence to build strength and flexibility in the first line. For those who already has a self-practice routine and like to try, I can encourage you to test it alone even as a short practice.
I’m sure you will enjoy!

Namaste dear readers,
Hatha-Yoga for Strength, Vitalitat and Energy was initially a Yoga Special 90min class, extended to 2h and 2h30. I´ve been using to attend people with different needs since 2012 in Germany. This Class schema becomes a kind of manual I made to those who wanna workout for acquiring these features. This is “the base of all my experiences, made for all of you to experience”.
The concept is a mix of Sukshma Vyayama and Classic Hatha-Yoga, wich breath regulation in each posture and postures transitions, whats encreases the energy produced during the asana performance. Its take us to the level of using energy to concentration, meditation, and visualization.
Committed to transfer what I learn, pranayama becomes a must in all my classes, at least the more basic ones, any class will always start with Adham Pranayama or Yogic breath or the complete breathing, call how its call, its easy to do also for beginners. It`s can be done in sit or stand. Beginners and as well advanced practitioners, its 100% benefits warranty!
When questions coming out has to do with: How to apply those Yogic technics in daily life? We just need to observe and see that, the breath is within us all the time, breath happens without our effort, we just to observe it. Therefore the Pranayama is the easiest and fastest to apply in daily life, its means, as much as you can, remember you are breathing, do it mindfully, do it aware and awakened, do it consciously, better it’s quality. We just need to do it!
There is the reason I am so enthusiastic with Pranayama and Meditation, we just need to do it and we can do it all the time, any time, anywhere, no matter challenge the situation is, and of course, the benefits is there as well to be experienced by each practitioner.
In the more elaborated Pranayama Workshop, we do introduce participants to more pranayama technics like Anuloma-viloma, Agnisarakriya, Kaphalabhati and many others. But nor now we continue with just that one.
We will use that breath technic during the entire class and experience the presence in space, time and activity, entirely aware.
We expand our version of few rounds of Surya Namaskar including modifications and different Asana variations. Pranayama as the sessions begin, in Standing postures most recommended to squeeze mulabandha and when possible also uddhyanabandha. To get better benefits of the postures, we will hold for long periods of time while regulating the breath, we will practice from the basic to a wide variety of postures and transitions.
Inversions are part of this compendium, like long relaxation in between, abdominal as last hard work, and Yoga Nidra. Those who don´t do headstand, can do a shoulder stand, those who both, can do something different. Relaxations everyone needs and enjoy after a peak of 50% of the class time past, start all to be about create space for relaxation.
A combination of work, contraction, and relaxation or expansion, is a key point to use this classes framework as a method for self-development, here we are working to put things in balance. Sides, hemispheres, extremes, organs, glands, elements and energies, are going to get into balance, far that is our work and will be the motivation and dedication of time. More that kind of practice or schema is used, more that balance can be produced, experienced and enjoyed.
After a little bit of small abs challenge, we go into more deep relaxation in Yoga Nidra, where again, the breath will mark important presence as a tool to be used to be present as the breath is, and train our ability to visualize. We travel from the bottom till the lower parts of the body, start with toes, going into the legs, abs and organs, head and face, relaxing each detailed and letting go with the out-breath whats non-deserved and unnecessary.
We will close it with a short session breathing meditation.
Then open a time and space for gratitude, let it go! and say goodbye!
I will be happy to see you there.
In that workshop, we work with the passive Yin energy by holding postures for relaxation for 4 to 5 minutes, between posture, we perform some technics to improve the effectiveness of the asana, which is the Yang characteristic of this practice. By doing so, we are setup the body, to be more receptive in the passive state.
This is a classical 2h Workshop, starting with breath work (Pranayama), going into the flow of Asanas, letting go the body in a passive state. Relaxation (Yoga Nidra) before end the class, and a final closure with the practice of the Om mantra recitation, a short appreciation to the practice, and thankfulness.
Yin-Yang, is a practice for increases your blood flow, and lowering the risk of heart attack, better respiration, improvement of bones health, regulation of adrenal glands, and boost the immunity system.
We do a few rounds of Surya namaskar too, we meditate most of the time lying down on the mat, we use stillness for concentration purposes. Actions like bandhas and particular pranayamas done during these classes are also Yang practices form. According to the level of each participant, particular pranayama can be recommendable, classes schema can be adopted to a particular need, if so I see.
The body needs relaxations as actions is needed, muscles can only relax and contract, the entire body must to be used, diversity in movements, asanas, relaxation postures, and meditation is key to a balanced flow of energy. As much a body is balanced, more the elements are balanced, more that person is near his or her nature. More you use your body to relax and to be active, the more the body performs its natural function.
There is time for all in this classe, to just be and feel joy, as well to do some movement and feel yourself whats ever comes. Feelings are impermanent and whats ever is so, will change from moment to moment according our habitual tendencies. That changes, are our object of attention during this practice as well, to observe how things changes in ourselves, like our body, has been changing through all the years, from the beginning till the end of the practice.
In Yoga, the asana practice has as goal, setup the body in pliable condition, to support the mind be focused in a single object, to seek samadhi, the single point concrentration meditation. For that reason, one needs to perform a long period of time in a particular postures, because of that many benefits become fruits of those practices. We should consider more the practice if we want more results, we do wanna be flexible, youth, strong, for that we need to practice accordingly.
In Yin Yoga we choose the more relaxed and use to put the body static and stable, to perform the 5min of practice in each side or posture, we can use the same amount of time or shorter like 2 or 3min, to a particular postures which require some action, or some breath exercise which will be also done with body movement, after this relax again in on postures, totally passive and allow the body and mind get the benefits of the switch.
Yin Yoga allow us to solve tensions and increasing body ability, we give time to fascia the works to a gradually and deeper work in the deep tissues. This optimize the energy flow in our bodies and allow as well to access these energies, with visualization and imagination. Perfection and mastering the posture is the method we use to balance and self-development during this workshop.
Here we are going to plug into Telluric and Cosmic energy to recharging our being with all the best intentions and authentic motivations, to keep life in balance and continuously develop ourselves.
knowledge about the Chakras System or previous practices using the Chakras is not required, but useful for knows how to use it.
The meditation in this workshop
in that workshop very often I use breathing meditation, the reason for using the breath as the object of meditation, is because the breath is always there, present within all of us, all the time, everywhere. Focus on the breath has enormous benefits, like increase the breath capacity, calming the mind and establish a connection with the subtle energetical body.
The meditation in the 5 senses are done when this workshop can take longer than 2h, at least 30min is required for this purpose. Let me speak in advance with the participants and see if this is wished.
A 2 hours Hatha-Yoga meditative class with breath awareness, postures holded for moderate periods, Chakra concentration and a relaxation at the end.
Ayurveda is to Yoga the foundation for an harmonious lifestyle.These two Ancient Systems, perfectly match to each other and helps you to improve the life to the better! This is a combination to achieve a healthy body and mind.
In this Workshop we set focus on the 5 great elements in the human beings body, which are: earth, water, fire, air and space. The related Yogic technic that support the Chakra of each element is also our focus. We practice a fluid and soft transitions of postures and setup the technics for a harmonious connection of body, mind and emotions.
No previous theoretical knowledge about Yoga or Ayurveda is required. This is a 100% practical class and 100% suitable for beginners. Experienced practitioners and Yoga Teachers can get advantages as well by include this approach in the your own daily practice or teachings. As participants you only need to be present and go with the flow.
We work with basic postures and hold it for a moderate periods of time to increase awareness and provides a deep understanding of the strength, flexibility and the limitations of the own physical and subtle body. The focus on the breath play also a very important and vital role on this practice. You will be guided for this purpose.
This class is suitable for everyone, of any age and body types, no matter the shape or size. Balance being needed and recommended for everyone. The only challange is to bring the attention to yourself.
