It is a classical approach to yoga practice through posture, most commonly known today. In Indian tradition there are several more kinds of yoga: Bhakti, Karma, Raja, Jnana. In Hatha Yoga the body is seen as an instrument while the practice is done in order to keep it tuned. Different movements, postures, breathing techniques are used accordingly to personal needs. Aida’s style has formed through the ten years of practice and today has reached a gentle and at the same time strong approach with inspirations of Vanda Scaravelli, Angela Farmer, Elena Brower.
Yin Yoga is often called a “quiet practice” and works as a counter part to dynamic and invigorating practices as well as busy and often stressful living style. In Yin Yoga mostly seated postures are practiced and are usually held for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive ‘stress’ on the deep layers of connective tissues in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees as well as all over the body. While energetically, it emphasises on the body’s energy lines, improving flow of energy while deeply nourishing and releasing and supports emotional equilibrium.
Zen Shiatsu was found by Shizuto Masunaga in Japan and is now known worldwide. Based on Taoist philosophy and Traditional Chinese Medicine and aids to bring natural balance in body mind through the 12 energy pathways (meridians) in human body connected to the main internal organs/functions.
