Attention Everyone in Europe - 5-Day Retreat in Granada, Spain.

We are going to share 5 days of Conscious Hatha and Restorative Yoga in this beautiful and magical place, El Molino de Zegri.
The purpose of this workshop is to feel good through a safe, effective, and very rejuvenating Yoga practice. And also to visit Granada, to experience its authentic culture, flamenco, delicious tapas, as well as its palaces and cathedrals.

The path of Yoga that we share at Vida Yoga Center is about the process of transformation that begins with practice, determination, and self-observation. These are essential tools to increase awareness, proprioceptive system, and discernment.
We, as the first and fundamental rule, practice asanas while respecting the natural curves of the spine. For this, the primary practice is to strengthen the deep musculature that provides stability and support to these systems, the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. It's the ABC before any movement practice; we need to stimulate good posture. Instead of spending long minutes in passive positions of eternal stretching (as is very common in any asana practice), we emphasize mobility and activation.
In my personal experience as a teacher, bodies that are overly lax and malleable (a typical yoga teacher's body) are not synonymous with relaxation, harmony, and pain-free. In fact, there is a lot of tension in joint instability and over-stretched musculature. The nature of ligaments and tendons is to keep the joint safe, and excessive stretching of muscles can create insecurity in the joint, hence muscle stiffness.
For us, the practice of asanas, accessible to everyone and not necessarily easy, is a tool for well-being. It balances different systems of the body, giving us both strength and flexibility, as well as mobility. Nowadays, we know that yoga can cause injuries, tendinitis, joint instability, etc. For this reason, we take the practice seriously, with anatomical and biomechanical foundations. It's essential to know the muscular structure, the tissues that make up the muscles, as well as tendons and ligaments, fascia, and their relationship with our emotional states.
We turn the page on repetitive yoga, mechanically executed, doing the same thing over and over that someone once taught us. We question why and for what purpose we do what we do. Are we an integrated or disintegrated whole? In this school, we seek methods to integrate mind, body, energy, and emotion. We practice breathing exercises that make breathing more efficient and effective, closely connected to the central nervous system. These techniques of conscious practice bring us well-being, balance, harmony, inner peace, external strength, mobility, self-care, integration, and expansion of being. Curiosity and introspection.
Yoga is the fundamental tool we use to tune our sacred instrument - body, mind, soul.
Marine likes to teach smart "functional" yoga. Every class has a purpose and a logic.
For this she studies and observes the students. She talks to them after class and tries to understand their ways of moving and how they compensate so she can guide them to a new, more ergonomic posture. This is achieved using less vital energy and results in a happy spine, shoulders, etc.
Experimenting with meditation and various styles of yoga, for 12 years she has dedicated her life entirely to the teaching and practice of this philosophy as a way of training the body and mind through consciousness to keep it healthy and achieve constant practice connect with the inner self and find balance in our lives.
