Her yoga practice is both precise and deep, creative and cross-pollinated by symbolism, subtle hints of physiology and an attuned awareness of anatomy. Great importance is given to the integration of movement and breath, the development of self awareness, and having respect for oneself and one’s body as the basis of a practice where every posture is vivified by the light of consciousness.
hatha and pranayama – en
Pranayama is the yogic art of breathing. ‘prana’ means ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’, ‘ayama’ means ‘to expand’, accordingly pranayama is the expansion of the vital energy through different techniques of breath awareness and control, bandhas (locks), asanas and mudras. Pranayama enhances perception, harmonizes the pranic body (network of energetic paths), increases the level of vital energy in the body and develops a steady mind, thus being beneficial in the treatment of a broad spectrum of stress-related disorders. It also prepares the body-mind for the awakening of the chakras (psychic centres), aids in the practice of asanas, and create a solid bridge between the body and the mind, thus opening the doors of meditative state of consciousness.
