Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The term yoga nidra is derived from two Sanskrit words, yoga - meaning union or one-pointed awareness, and nidra which means sleep. During the practice of yoga nidra seems that man is asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness.

Bagua Jian
Bagua Jian is one of three orthodox "inner" styles in Chinese martial arts. It aims at forming an axis in the body and balancing and balancing the energy in the body.

The movement in a circle is characteristic of ba-gua, as the form is practiced in three modes - land, sky, rhythm, according to the practitioner's purposes.
Dance meditation
Dance Meditation "Beyond Constraints" is a dynamic meditative practice that allows us to experiment, observe, realize, expand, and connect to a deeper level.
"Beyond Constraints" helps us to connect with our creative nature. Let us release this creative energy that is so often suppressed. It helps us to connect with the feminine and masculine beginnings, to become more balanced and complete.
It helps us to get rid of stress, to move the blocked energies in the body, saying YES to your emotions and moods right now. It gives us the freedom to be authentic, beyond the limits we set ourselves.
It allows us to break the studied frames and models to the right and wrong, beautiful and ugly. To merge with the dance, following only the impulses of the body, without choreography.
It gives us the opportunity to start exploring the unknown. It helps us connect to a deeper level with our inner wisdom and intuition. Let's begin to trust life and follow it at our own pace and direction. To be present in the present, breathing consciously.
Therapeutic yoga
"Therapeutically yoga" is modified yoga practice for people after traumatic conditions, operations, disorders of the muscle-skeletal system or for all who want to protect themselves from such. Prevention is the best treatment and it is exactly yoga therapy that could give us a good basic idea of what our own body is and how to use it in everyday life. The therapy is especially appropriate for many chronic diseases, which persist despite conventional medical treatment. The practice consists of specific variations of postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs.
Yoga and meditation
The mind and the body are not separate entities. The gross form of the mind is the body and the subtle form of the body is the mind. The practice of asana integrates and harmonizes the two. Asanas release mental tensions by dealing with them on the physical level, acting tomato-physically, through the body to the mind. The yoga asanas are techniques which place the physical body in positions that cultivate awareness, relaxation, concentration and meditation.
Meditation is something that we all should and are able to experience spontaneously, but it is difficult because of the way we live. We are in a state of tension because we don’t know ourselves, our inner nature. There is a conflict between that which is and that we want. If we could bring about a unity between what we are and what we want, then meditation would occur spontaneously.

Ayengar yoga
What is Ayengar yoga? It is a style whose roots are the beginning of hatha yoga, enriched with very detailed and precise work in asanas, as well as in the performance of pranayama.
BKC Ayengar, whose name is the method, gave his life to the deep study of the yoga philosophy and the application of its principles in practice. The distinguishing features of Ayengar yoga are:
• Accuracy and alignment - Asana precision is not just designed to bring the relevant body parts in order, but to achieve the proper functioning of the whole being. If the body is aligned with accuracy, then breathing becomes more correct if the breath is balanced, then the mind, emotions and senses are also balanced.
• Longer posture - this desire to hold the posture leads to the development of the will and enables detailed and precise work to be achieved. Only with longer retention in posture the body and the mind can enjoy the real profound benefits of practicing it.
• Use of additional stiffness in the performance of asanas - these are different types of props such as blocks, belts, special chairs, bolts that are placed in the appropriate places to facilitate stay in the posture and minimize the risk of injuries. These supports allow all people, regardless of the age and condition of the body, to perform asanas safely and correctly.
• Sequence of asanas - a different sequence of asanas can lead to different effects in the body and mind of the practitioner.
• The concept of hierarchy always starts from simple asanas to more complex, from more general to more detailed work in the asana itself. This allows the body to develop in the right direction with a slower but sure pace.
• Pranayama begins to practice after the body has become healthy - it is believed that while the muscles are not healed, the body's posture is not stable, the nervous system is not sufficiently strengthened, the pranayama should not be practiced because this can have an adverse effect on our entire system.
