Our approach has always been the fusion: everything that is useful should be learned and integrated into the body of the theory and the practice of Yoga; We do not reject anything but either we accept anything precisely by the criteria developed from this. From this point, when the road became us coming across these two professors magnificent in its school of Tenerife (reference in the island and the most veteran of the place) only could ask that they travel to the peninsula to bring this knowledge to all our students, Yoga teachers and students from the scope.

We often see that, according to the school that raises it, There are excellences and shortcomings in the teaching of Yoga. This makes that we need to be in permanent research for cover all fields in depth. Here we offer a jewel to change perspectives, deepening of infinitesimal way in alignment and the anatomical knowledge Since an increased sensitivity as well as connect with the wisdom of the body as a vehicle of self.

We will address this seminar exploring our bodies through the ability to perceive and identify the most important bone and muscle actions, within the practice and study of Standing postures and inverting, especially in the actions to be carried out in the girdle and in the pelvic waistby integrating the work within a balanced and full scheme. Designed with the purpose of deepening understanding and technical implementation of actions and adjustments in the practice of Yoga, in its essential aspects, especially to develop the clarity of perception, awareness of the feelings, and the State of serenity and stillness characteristic of the practice of Yoga.

Approach and inspiration from the practice that we will address is the of the Iyengar Yogafrom which we part, integrating in this specific aspects of certain sutras of Patanjali who shine in the teaching. Integrate, along with the practice of asanas, pranayama and meditation practice.

An important practice of asanas intelligent and healthy is enabling a alignment of joints, bone structure and muscles for the correct and efficient operation of all our systems. Turn for a better functioning of the joints and internal organs, the creation of some interior space, it is necessary which is also applicable to the mind. Correct alignment and creation of space, necessary precision in technical details, which requires a high level of care and minimal dwell time at each position.

From this perspective, the objective is to study the positions of foot and reversed most important to focus on those actions of the waist scapular (arms, shoulders, shoulder blades, neck and upper back), the pelvic girdle (legs, pelvis, hips and lower back), along with other positions who complete a coherent and integrated practice.

The aim of Yoga, as we know, is achieve an approach to that secret and sacred part that remains hidden to our eyes and free us from fear, attachment and the rejection, pride and above all ignorance, from which we identify with what is not our essence, to which we cling to build a personality that becomes a mask, in a Cuirass, forgetting and denying our true reality. The practice has lead us towards this process. For this reason, although the work focuses on the study of the correct actions in waists scapular and pelvic, in standing postures and reversed, we must not forget what is the path of Yoga and where we go. So the end result of the practice has always be an approach towards this goal.
