Techniques

the different styles you will experience during your yoga retreat

Hatha Yoga

In the language of sanskrit, “Ha” means sun, and “tha” means moon. The practice of Hatha Yoga is the unification of opposites – of the sun and the moon, of the body and the mind.

Hatha is the physical component of yoga, practicing body poses or “asanas”, and the root of all other types of yoga. It’s a quiet, restful practice, incorporating mild physical exercises with breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation. It allows the individual practicing to learn more about oneself, providing resources to resolve everyday situations, overcoming physical, mental, and emotional limits.

Pranayama

The Prana, or life energy, nourishes both body and mind. At the physical level, it manifests as our breathing while mentally, it is the psychic activity. Through pranayama, you can re-orient and consciously channel this vital energy, allowing it to flow freely throughout the body system.

During practice, the powerful boost of the universal energy that flows through our breathing is brought into our consciousness, a process that many consider involuntary. Science has shown that the pace and quality of breath is altered according to one’s emotional state. Through pranayama you will notice the profound relationship between breathing and mental activity.

Stretching of the Meridians

Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, these simple stretches stimulate the body, facilitate organ functions and increase energy. It is, in itself, an Exercise and Therapy. While stretching the body, we are deeply working the meridians, which are energy pathways that lead life to our cells throughout the body.

The practice promotes blood supply to the muscles, improving their tone, and unlocks contractions and stress leading to relaxation. Meridian stretching helps to eliminate excessive muscular tension and causes a pleasant feeling of expansion throughout the body. This improves joint mobility and body awareness, and reduces the risk of injury.

Meditation / Relaxation

Through meditation, we learn how to create silence inside our minds and discover innate peace, harmony and happiness.

Meditation is an ancient practice that allows us to explore the vast capabilities of the mind. It is practiced by sitting or laying in a comfortable position without distractions and focusing on one’s mind and how it functions, taking the position of “observer.” This is a practice that can be achieved through patience and perseverance.

AeroYoga®

In Aero Yoga, you perform traditional (as well as non-traditional) yoga movements while suspended from a safe and strong swing. The swing facilitates movement of the body and allows positions to be done in a smooth and controlled manner, helping to gain a better understanding of our body and its limitations.

Aero Yoga benefits the whole body. Muscles, joints, spine, and posture, are utilized as you gain strength and flexibility. Working without the resistance of gravity provides a lifting effect; meanwhile, the swing provides a sense of liberation and creativity. It’s a rejuvenating and detoxifying experience that can improve your internal health! These and many other benefits of AeroYoga® are at your disposal.

Yoga Nidra®

The Aerial Relaxation. At the end of each aerial yoga class, experience a unique final relaxation where your swing becomes a chrysalis. With your legs inverted, you are promoting blood and lymph circulation and the equilibrium of our body systems. In this restorative position, you will experience a mineral stone and aromatherapy treatment, closing your unique experience with a golden seal.

    Yoga Alliance (RYT200) - AeroYoga® Institute

    About Maria Testillano

    About Me

    Since I was a little girl equality between people was a matter of vital importance for me. Being able to help the unprivileged has always been the best satisfaction I could get from life. In order to achieve this goal I studied law, embracing the rights of the less privileged. As licensing, I traveled the world, owned a business, but especially and above all, my greatest interest was the human being and his minimum health and wellness conditions. This feeling each day stronger, turned me to the techniques that accompany me today on my way as a Therapist and Instructor. The first one was the Universal Energy channeling, from where I found meditation and developed my intuition. Then Applied Kinesiology (Reflexokinesia®), the Structural Activator and Polarity Therapy followed. At this point I started as a Polarity Yoga Teacher, awakening my interest for the deeper meaning of Yoga.

    So I became a certified Yoga Instructor Alliance (RYT200) at The International Yoga School of Madrid. The study and practice of AeroYoga® has opened a new perspective on the awareness of the potential of this great and innovative discipline.

    Quotations

    Water is the element softer yet its firmness manages to break the hardest rock, so be water my friend, relaxes your mind and movements. That would say if they spoke together Lao Tse and Bruce Lee.

    Every day do something you did not do before. Break your routines. Just doing different things recover the surprise and spontaneity, perfect impulse to move forward and evolve.

    Shiatsu Instructor (600+)

    About Davide Sciortino

    About Me

    I have always been convinced that my way was to help people find their own external and internal balance, although at first I did not know how. After high school I looked for a new way to study, where I could find the tools to better understand myself and people around me. Naturopathy has been a revelation, my life changed and I knew that this was my path and there was no turning back. But I found my real passion in Shiatsu (Master of the School of Naturopathy).

    Every time after any treatment, I came out refreshed and more aware about the world that surrounds us. I felt the great universal knowledge go through my hands. The practice led me to experiment with various techniques and styles, learning from several teachers I understand the essence of listening.

    A important part of my journey has been to be a part of the birth of the Shiatsu in cammino School, founded by my Master Massimo Noe.

    Shiatsu is more than a digital pressure technique, it is a perception of the individual as a whole. It is the ability to converse with the profound essence in each individual's unfiltered mind. It is unconditional love. The Moxa and Stretching of Meridians are complementary disciplines, more complete in its phenomenology which is linked to the symptom and active stimulation of the body's energy aspect.

    The need for new experiences and overcoming my limits has led me to travel. At the end the Dominican Republic has welcomed me and I found my family here and my destination.

    It’s amazing!

    Maria Postell, Singer and Photographer

    After participating in the 3-hour retreat with yoga, stretching and my first attempt at Aero Yoga, I completely forgot what day it was! What a treat! The setting was absolutely perfect with floor to ceiling windows over-looking the crystal blue water, a balmy breeze passing through, a beautiful flower placed on my matt and two knowledgeable teachers guiding us on a calming journey. Maria and Davide are very dedicated to their professions and it shows - they are lovely people as well as consummate therapists. I recommend this center to anyone who needs some introspection and balance in their life.

  • Great!

    Fatima Alvarez Cofiño,

    Great three hours experience; the host, material placement and details during breaks. The place made me fall in love, music was perfect because you can still hear the ocean waves which gives you much concentration. I wish that the AeroYoga part was longer, but I understand that it is important to warm up plus I appreciate having practiced all the postures and exercises and all the love I received. Depending on the level of the group also (if people are doing yoga regularly) I think it's good to slightly increase the level of the yoga class in the first hour. As such, all great. Thanks again.

This is a perfect venue for those looking to bounce the stress and for athletes seeking to develop psychological and emotional level in the high yielding. Relaxation techniques and breathing excercises are a real mental and physical journey that make you feel at Zen state after the sessions. Practicing yoga is showing me results in strengthening the lower part of my back, which receive a lot of  wear and tear due to my sports practice.
