Hatha Yoga

Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

 

Yin yoga

A slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.

 

Vinyasa Yoga

Also sometimes called "Vinyasa Flow Yoga," this type of practice involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health.  The literal translation of the Sanskrit word "vinyasa" is "to place in a certain way."  It refers to a certain sequence of poses that are performed in a particular order.  Today, it also refers to the style of yoga that focuses on breathing in conjunction with body movement.

 

Aikido

Aikido has been translated as The Way of unifying with life energy, The Art of peace, The Way of centering or Moving Zen. It is a martial art that is performed by blending into the motion of the opponent and redirecting the force of the attack. It is also one particular “Path of Truth” in the Buddhist sense. It is a warrior’s path, yet one which leads us to love our opponent, meeting hostility with peaceful reconciliation and bringing harmony into a hostile situation. Aikido strengthens inner power and deepens your connection with others.

Tai Chi

Tai chi (taiji), short for t'ai chi ch'üan (taijiquan; 太极拳), is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. The term taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions, and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of tàijíquán are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.

 

Capoeira

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art which combines fighting with performance art. It's a very recognizable style with its emphasis on acrobatics, attacks from the ground, feints, and spinning kicks, frequently all at the same time. Its usage dates back at least to the 18th century. Capoeira as practiced today stems primarily from two Mestres in the 20th century and their respective schools: Mestre Bimba, founder of the modernized Capoeira Regional in the 1930s, and Mestre Pastinha, founder of the more traditionalist Capoeira Angola that strove to keep closer to the art's roots.

Janur-yasa-moksa.jpg

Janur has been practicing Aikido since 2003, when he began training at North Shore Tahoe Dojo in Lake Tahoe California. In 2005 he moved to Taos New Mexico and intensively training at Taos Kihon Dojo. He also trained in various Dojo during extensive travel in USA and Asia. Janur combines his background as certified Somatic Coach by Strozzi Institute California with his Aikido training.  He considers Aikido as a spiritual path, and as a metaphor for daily life.

Somatic Awareness

The term Somatic derives from the ancient Greek means the living body in its wholeness. In Somatic Therapy we deepen our whole body awareness through dialogue, movements, and practices. This enables us shift old patterns that no longer serve us well and make choices towards the life we want to live. Understanding the body, mind, emotions and spirit as an integrated whole, or soma, is essential for our health and having a sense of meaning in our life. We teach clients the language of sensations, where they can more easily find presence, calling and change conditioning that is no longer useful.
