How a lesson procedures?

After a private lesson, if possible for the first contact, the trainee participates in a group. The progress will be strengthened by the group and the teacher. Any competition is excluded.

The course includes a chain of postures and rest time, , depending on the choice of the teacher, suited to the time and the skill of the students.

Postures

By holding your breath, as with normal breathing, each pause is performed only once:MORE

a) Body postures:
Preparations in order to soften the main joints (back, shoulders, hip joints).
b) Postures holding breath:
Some certain postures last as long as it takes to inhale or exhale without force.
c) Postures with continually free breathing:

Breathing

Between each posture there is some time for restoration. The student in neutral position, seated or lying down listens to his senses. This is then followed by the natural rhythm of breathing. That way he offers himself the pleasure of experiencing a full breathing. Full breathing consists of isochrones holding of breath, one after inhaling and the other after exhaling.

At the end of the lesson:
Breathings that alternate the intake of air from one nostril to the other following the rhythm which is slow at the beginning and gets faster afterwards. Then we remain relaxed an at peace with our body.
