PrANin Yoga

 

‘Having Breath or Life; Living Creature, Man or Animal.

 

“What distinguishes yoga asana from any other system is it’s focus on attaining stillness. This begins with the strength and discipline to still the body in any asana. Holding an asana expands the consciousness and level of awareness through observation and concentration.  Asana is a way of becoming ‘seated’ in consciousness, so that the postures are executed with the intention of uniting (breath), body and mind…. This practice gradually deepens the effect of pratyahara, thereby preparing the yogi for the sublime practice of meditation.”   (Mas Vidal)
Vinyasa Krama is the art of intelligent sequencing of yoga postures. Connected harmoniously by the breath.
PrANin Yoga is the passion of Fernando Alvarez, a certified yoga teacher trained in various traditions of yoga, to include, Iyengar yoga, Anusara yoga , and Vinyasa Krama. He has incorporated these into his teachings resulting in a dynamic alignment and breath based method designed to advance students progressively, while teaching them to stay safe in their own practice.
The benefits of a consistent yoga practice are numerous and can include:
  • Increased flexibility,
  • Increased muscle strength,
  • Weight loss,
  • Cardiovascular and respiratory health,
  • Improved sleep and
  • Energy throughout the day.
Fernando teaches classes in various centers in the Palm Springs area. In addition he will work with you to build a custom yoga practice that meets the needs of your body, mind and spirit. Please review the Bio Page for more information about Fernando’s background and certifications.
