To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear -Buddha
Yoga & Meditation practices date back to 300 B.C. and various traditions are found in both Buddhist and Hindu traditions.
We believe the goals of Yoga and Meditation practices are self-realization and keeping oneself balanced and healthy on a daily basis. Health is your greatest wealth. The body’s DNA knows how to heal itself; all it needs is the energy. The energizing, rejuvenating Yoga & Mediation practices can be the source of this energy.
At Navutu you have the opportunity to learn humble practices of Ashtanga, Iyengar, Hatha, Vinyasa and Meditation & Gentle Flow classes. Daily Classes are available.
Ashtanga (also spelled Astanga) means “eight limbs” in Sanskrit, which refers to the eight limbs of yoga laid out in the Yoga Sutras of Patanajali, The Ashtanga method of asana practice was interpreted by T. Krishnamacharya and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois from an ancient text called the Yoga Korunta. The Ashtanga method involves synchronising the breath with a progressive series of postures using ujjayi breathing, mula bandha, uddiyana bandha and drishti. There are six different Ashtanga series, through which a student progresses at his or her own pace.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
In Vinyasa yoga movement is synchronised to the breath. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the fluid way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath is a vital component because movement from one pose to the next follows an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit to mean “connection.” We can interpret this as a connection between movement and breath.
The term vinyasa also refers to a specific series of movements that are frequently done between each pose in a series. This is a variation of the Sun Salutations.
Iyengar Yoga, named and developed by B.K.S. Iyengar is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of asana (posture) and pranayama (breath control). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas.
Mr. B has systematised over 200 classical yoga Asanas and 14 different types of Pranayamas (with variations of many of them) from the simple to the incredibly difficult. These have been structured and categorised so as to allow a beginner to progress surely and safely from basic postures to the most advanced as they gain flexibility, strength and sensitivity in mind, body and spirit.
