Regular practice and disciplined Yoga classes is the way to all achievements.
Hatha Yoga Classes
Hatha Yoga consists of a diverse set of techniques.
In CPYOGA’s Hatha Yoga classes, the focus is on the techniques of Ásana (Yoga postures), Pránáyáma (Yoga breathing techniques), Yoganidra (Yoga relaxation techniques), and Samyama (Yoga meditation techniques).
How a Yoga Class Unfolds
A yoga class begins with coordinating movement with the Ujjayi breath (a basic Pránáyáma technique).
The goal is to bring the breath from a naturally automated process to a conscious one, coordinating body movement with the breath, gradually entering a state of increased concentration and focus, conducive to the practice of Yoga (Samyama).
Throughout the class, various Ásana techniques are developed, which strengthen the body, enhance flexibility, and release physical, mental, and emotional tension.
The class usually ends with a Pránáyáma or Yoganidra technique, promoting a state of deep internal relaxation and mental clarity.
Hatha Yoga taught according to the CPYOGA method is one of the most challenging and demanding, having a profound impact and action on joint and organic levels, contributing to your inner balance.
At CPYOGA, we offer group in-person yoga classes, online classes, and private yoga classes.
Our Hatha Yoga classes are dynamic and challenging.
Hatha Yoga classes respect the individual condition and characteristics of each student, using specific Yoga props whenever necessary, to help you progress safely.
In the in-person classes, you will get to know and learn how to use materials correctly, such as the ‘Feet-Up’, Back Bend equipment, Forward Bend equipment, pelvic belt, kurunda, chairs, bolsters, belts, and blocks.
Duration and Organization
Yoga classes are organized into three levels:
The division into these three levels allows students to learn various Yoga techniques progressively, correctly, and at their own psychophysical pace.
The duration of beginner and intermediate yoga classes is 1 hour, and advanced Yoga classes last for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The teaching method of CPYOGA is characterized by:
- Being dynamic, producing rapid and intense effects on the body and mind.
- Using support materials to allow all students to follow the class, regardless of their condition.
- During the class, teachers provide specific, precise, and understandable instructions for everyone and demonstrate the execution of Yoga postures.
- Yoga classes are conducted at a particular pace – the “flow” of body movement (with or without Vinyasa) follows the continuous rhythm of breath.
- The permanence in the Yoga postures is done with a focus on alignment and postural correction.
