The yoga classes are rooted in the method of B.K.S. Iyengar. A central aspect in this active yoga form is technical refinement in performing the yoga posture, which calms and energizes the body-mind system. Props like belts, blocks, blankets, chairs and pillows are used to make such a practice possible.
Each yoga class starts with a short sequence of about 6 asanas (see book). Every week the short sequence is different, traveling the asana groups and key ingredients, providing opportunities for the development of crucial actions, directions and movements.
(…) what do the Italians do so well? What they do is they think how can I respect the ingredients in the best way I can? Therefore I am interfering the least but having enough of myself that I’ve put my heart into this. It’s not really about knowledge, it’s about passion. And it’s about an attitude.
