Centered Yoga Practice

CENTERED YOGA BY DONA HOLLEMAN, INTERPRETATION OF THE METHOD OF ITS GREAT MASTER B.K.S. IYENGAR

Practicing yoga is a fantastic opportunity to know oneself through a body which sooths the mind.

The Yoga we teach is a “modern” Yoga that looks to the future, but is rooted, however, in the classic Yoga codified in the Patanjali sutra which is divided in eight parts.

This method is a bridge between East and West, between tradition and innovation, it is the wellbeing of the body and the mind and the re-awakening of the energetic body. The method was born from her exposure to the teachings of her great, first and only mentor, B.K.S. Iyengar, of whom she had been a pupil during the 1960’s and 1970’s in Pune, India.

Dona has given a female body to the Iyengar approach, setting at the centre of the system, care and respect for the body and the laws governing it.

The method falls within the sphere of traditional hatha yoga, and its focus on the execution of the postures of the asana is essential in order to find alignment and balance, just as awareness of breathing will render the asana more harmonious and the practice more fluid.

Suitable for all ages and for whoever wishes to improve their technique, their health and sport performances and relieve physical or mental tensions, rebalance energies and dissolve stress.

We are looking forward to meeting you and practicing together.
