ELEMENTARY PROGRAM - WEEK 1 (10-14/07/2023)

Yoga class with Laia Puig Escandell
Unfold & unlock your personal potential
During this time we will be introduced to Yoga as a holistic practice. The five points of the holistic system are: proper exercise (Asana), proper breathing (Pranayama), proper relaxation (Savasana), proper diet (vegetarian), positive thinking and meditation (Vedanta and Dhyana), although we will mainly work on the first 2-3 points.
This Yoga classes will be the moment to unfold and unblock, first physiologically and then into deeper levels of awareness, identifying our unnecessary/not useful patterns and habits, and letting go of them.
Balancing, strengthening and stretching the body, increasing concentration and learning to closely listen, read and explore our bodies for better understanding and efficiency.
This way each of us individually can connect with our own potential, tune into a deeper intelligence, expand ourselves as artists and as humans and share it with the community and the world. I hope you all enjoy the process of unfolding yourselves.
