Centered Yoga in Italy

I have met wonderful people from all over the world in Yoga teacher training.  International Centered Yoga with Dona Holleman has eight principles of practice.
One main principle is in the understanding of assisting the student. Using props such as belts and sticks help the body align with the ground.
Setting the intention of the practice, using the intelligence of the mind along with the alignment of the body are interwoven and linked with the assisting partner.
 Yoga is a tool that is used to keep us grounded and teaches us the value of helping others learn more about themselves

Yoga with Dona Holleman

Benefits of Yoga practice are numerous. One of its pearls is the engagement of the mind. Moving the body with intelligence develops the brains neuropath ways, for example in the correct alignment of the standing poses. In our modern day of technology, we spend the most part of our day in front of a computer. To counter this effect on the body we need to move, but not just any movement, there needs to be a connection of the mind to the body. Yoga postures are a tool in directing the mind towards the innate ability to heal, recuperate and […]

Urdhva Dhanurasana

Back-bends are beautiful to look at, such as you see in this picture. Bending the body in the opposite direction of gravity’s pull, takes skill and practice. The body bends like a tree, strong and stable at its roots and soft and bendable in its branches. So is the spine, subtle and strong, yet soft and pliable. Attention to detail is all in the preparation of the pose. Keeping your heels firmly in the ground, the legs follow the gravity’s pull and the mind is into the wave of the spine, much like a big ocean wave, pulling up and […]

Breathe easy with gentle poses

How do we keep a daily practice simple,exciting and beneficial? With a clearness of the mind, directed with a good intention, we simply move in a gentle way that is beneficial and enlightening.

Connect the breath to any movement and your there! Breathing gently, consciously in any yoga pose will get your body and mind where it needs to be.

Tomorrow will come with a clear,steady,soft mind guiding you to another yoga practice.

In Peace

Spring brings new awareness and fresh beginnings.

Spring is a beautiful time of year, bringing new awareness and fresh beginnings. When young and child like, we experience joy and excitement with the new. Our minds are open to possibilities and we embrace challenges. Our spirit is light and free.

To breath freely and rhythmically we reawaken new awareness back into our young and childlike selves.
We feel a sense of space, lightness and joy. there is a “spring in our step” new beginnings are on the horizon.

Pranayama (breath control) is a practice to develop daily, preparing our body to invite the breath is a skill. One […]
