The yoga teaching is influenced by the tradition of Sri T. Krishnamacharya and by the teaching of BKS Iyengar and Sadhana School Methods (a Yoga School that combines Indian Classic Yoga Tradition, Vipassana
Meditiation with western somatic approaches).
The classes can be either based on a sequence of asanas guided by the breath or on specific single asanas. These different ways of practicing refer to the teaching of Sri T. Krishnamacharya which changed during his long life. The principle that leads the practice is progression (Vinyasa) both in the sequence of asana and in the specific single asana. That means that there will be a progression to arrive at the focus of the class and a progression to balance the work done and to close the practice.

Every class starts with a warm up related to the focus of the class, leading to the core aspect of the class, ending with regulating/balancing the practice and final relaxation.
The focus of the class will be
– body parts (pelvis, spine, shoulder blades, hip joint…) and the relationship between this part and the rest of the body or
– energetic centers (chakra system of classic yoga) or
– postural principle (axis, plane, alignment, side, front…) or
– specific asana through the Vinyasa approach.

I see the practice mainly as a meditation through the body and in my opinion practicing yoga leads the students to respect themselves as human beings, their history, life moments and weaknesses as well as discovering their potential and power.
Yoga is a process of self-knowledge that leads to a harmonization of body, mind and emotions and I want to create space for the students to discover inner aspects of themselves.
