Cómpeta Yoga has different classes open to everyone, whether you live in Cómpeta or are just visiting.
Yoga, a centuries old vision on life, is rooted in India. The word yoga means union; uniting body, mind and spirit. Although a lot of people think it´s airy, it actually focuses you, and allows you to stand your ground, fully alive, fully present. It is not a religion, and there are no boundaries. Yoga is for everyone and there is no right or wrong, just unlimited possibilities.
Yoga makes you stronger, both physically and mentally. You will gain flexibility and it can also ease the pain of arthritis and stiff joints. Yoga makes you more conscious of yourself and more aware of your surroundings.
Everyone is welcome to join Cómpeta Yoga where one of our aims is to build a happy and relaxed community. Please don’t hesitate to contact me to ask your questions and share any doubts you may have.
Some classes are open to all levels, but if you are new to yoga, or just want to go back to basics, you will be welcome in this class where we work at a slower pace and take more time to give fuller explanations.
Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit as meaning “connection”. This is a style of yoga in which movement is synchronized to the breath. This style is sometimes called flow yoga, because of the way that the poses smoothly run together almost creating a dance. We move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale, which we can interpret as a connection between movement and breath.
This has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular styles of yoga, but can also be your favourite yoga class.
Surya Chandra Yoga
Surya means sun and Chandra means moon in Sanskrit. This class starts with energizing Vinyasa flows (Yang) and ends with deep relaxing and centering postures (Yin). Just like inhalation and exhalation; both are equally important for our physical and mental wellbeing.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga are set sequences of yoga postures. In this dynamic class we practice the primary series, using the breath, which makes it a nice moving meditation.
