Asana - The Elements and Body Movement

The Asana Elements

Body Movement Training

In each class physical positions are executed in a choreographic format, with distinct passages between techniques. This concept was restored from the vestiges of Ancient Yôga during the codification of the DeRose Method. It not only adds a beauty and grace to every class but deepens your strength, flexibility, balance, agility and coordination.



The choreographic format is one of the main features of our practice. When we execute the techniques with emphasis on the movement our body conscience expands, we increased our concentration, and transform a simple practice in a true work of art.

And because life is movement, not staticity, also the practice should be. When we do our daily practice with this consciousness we extrapolate this concept of movement and fluidity to everything we do on a daily basis. We transform the way we move, how we walk,  how we feed ourselves .... everything becomes more aesthetic and delicate, but sharply done. We become so much more delicate with our body and the way we deal with it. We become better persons, to ourselves, and to the others, emphasizing grace, delicacy and power, that only a sadhana can do.

In your next practice remember this: combine focus and improvisation. Focus and stability, having the feet on the ground, while the mind is relaxed and flowing through improvisation. One of the biggest features of learning our practise is you get to live here and now which is one of the biggest concepts of life.

Until then, inspired yourself with the choreographies by DeRose Art Company.
