Stretching

Stretching – this is a combination of exercises aimed to develop flexibility and mobility of joints and muscles. Stretching classes include static elements of yoga, breathing exercises, endurance and balance, ground gymnastics, elements of Pilates and ballet. The exercises intensify all muscle groups, so that in time you will not only be able to make a split, but overall, the flexibility of your body will increase and the elasticity of your muscles will improve. Other beneficial effects are the improvement of posture, stress relieving after a hard day, energizing and relaxation.

Body functions over which the stretching influences

  • elongation – refers to the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is the ability of fibers to increase in length under the influence of applied pressure.
  • muscle elasticity – the qualities of muscles, allowing them to recover their original shape after deformation – under the influence of weight or after stretching. When the muscle is shortened elasticity is growing at the expense of extensibility; muscular fatigue increases extensibility.
  • mobility – Quality of the joints, which depends on several factors and refers to their range of movement.Flexibility – this is a person’s ability to perform movements with broad coverage. Flexibility may be congenital or acquired. It depends on both the mobility of the joints, and the extensibility of the fibers, muscle tone and temperature, and muscle elasticity.
  • muscle tone – the state of slight contraction of muscles during resting state. It is regulated by the nerve system and supports the posture of the body. “Good” and “bad” tone are conditional terms, as “bad” refers to two extremes: at low tone there is bad position of the body, lack of coordination in movement. If the tone is too high, it comes to the so-called “rigid” muscles. Good muscle tone gives us freedom of movement and coordination, and delays the moment of the fatigue.

Yoga

Hatha yoga – a system of physical, mental and spiritual practices designed to transform the body and the mind. Yoga is one of six systems of Hindu philosophy, in which it is believed that meditation has a fundamental meaning when achieving exemption of the mind and the spirit.
Hatha Yoga has five pillars:

  • proper exercises (asanas) – the body is meant to move and exercise. If our lifestyle does not provide us whit enough physical activities, over time appear diseases and discomfort. According to Hatha yoga, appropriate exercises must be enjoyable for those who perform them and at the same time good for body, mind and spirit.
  • proper breathing (pranayama) – Yoga teaches us how to maximize our lungs and to achieve breathing control. Proper breathing should be deep, slow and rhythmic. This improves blood circulation and vitality and clears the mind.
  • proper relaxation – through complete relaxation of the muscles the nerve system rejuvenates and this leads us to our inner peace.
  • proper diet – the food we eat affects our mind. Hatha yoga recommends vegetarian food, fresh products and a variety of foods in our daily menu.
  • positive thinking and meditation – this is the most important part. We are what we think. We should try to think positively and creatively, which will help us to achieve health and peace of mind. A positive look at life could be developed by studying and practicing of Vedanta philosophy techniques.

Power Yoga

Power Yoga – body vitality and harmonic soul

There are different types of Yoga, whose role is to relax the body, mind and soul, thereby releasing tension and stress. Each type, however, has various methods of impact.

Power Yoga is one of the latest styles, which is increasingly gaining popularity in our country. The main feature is that there is no exact sequence of asanas. Another thing, which differs it from the classical Hatha Yoga is that individual positions are connected to each other through a smooth transition -. “Stream, overflow – Flow”.

It is also known as Vinyasa and the result is absolute unity and biss.  In the eyes of a person who is not familiar with Yoga, these movements might appear smooth and organic, remindful of dancing in a state of trance.

The combinations can be structured so that they are suitable for people who have never practiced Yoga, while allowing for a complete transformation depending on the individual progress, needs and capabilities of the person.

The style is considered as one of the best ways for weight loss since it combines yoga’s overall benefits, simultaneously consuming a massive lot of energy.

In the Power Yoga classes we will pay attention to the following activities:

  • Warm up the joints and “Surya Namaskar” (Solar exercise);
  • Respiratory Practice “Prana” – full yogic breathing;
  • Short relaxation for an enjoyable and relaxing end of the class.

Handstand /Hand Balance/

Hand Balancing skills are major part of the sport acrobatics – a discipline that beautifully combines strength and flexibility.

The key strength that builds on this type of balance covers the muscles of the arms and shoulders, but also all abdominal and dorsal muscles. The pelvis and legs are strongly involved in the overall performance of the movement (entry into the hand stand, centering and balancing, exit from the vertical line of the body).

Handstand training aims to prepare the whole body and all the active muscle groups to perform a handstand and its more complex modifications. Acro balancing is also part of the process, allowing for many beautiful and impressive figures, done by two and more people. The use of the handstand provides basis for the execution of multiple figures on both the floor and various sports appliances. Acquiring a calm and concentrated mind is a bonus benefit in the training process.

Ultimately, all this leads to higher self-esteem and self-confidence on mental and physical level.
