Unite, connect, relate. In Sanskrit, this is what the word Yoga means. Its origin dates back to India, between 10,000 and 5,000 B.C. To this day, it comes not just as a practice or hobby, but as a lifestyle. In this entry we will tell you where you can practice yoga in Valladolid.
A quick guide to practicing yoga
The practice is supported by eight Sutras. We can understand sutra as the common thread that guides your practice of the discipline. That is to say, there are eight concepts that you can and should keep in mind while practicing.
Yamas, the five social ethics. Niyamas, the five personal ethics. Asanas, postures of this practice. Pranayamas, breathing techniques. Pratyahara, bringing the senses inside. Dharana, single focus. Dhyana, meditation. Samadhi, merge with the Being.
You do your posture (Asana). You do it respecting your own abilities at the moment (Niyama) and, while doing it, you breathe (Pranayama). In each session, you focus on one sutra, supplementing it with one or two of the others.
Most people think of Asanas only, when approaching the practice casually.
Different styles for different tastes
There are several types or styles of this practice. For example, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Bikram, Ashtanga, Yin yoga, Restorative Yoga, Anusara, Jivamukti and Acroyoga.
We suggest you try several of these styles until you find yours. The one that fits best with your personality and lifestyle. A good idea is to start your exploration in any of the social networks of your choice. Another path is to participate in a face-to-face class.
