Reduce your levels of stress and tension and increase your levels of wellbeing.
The Karmuka Yoga method is a progressively educative way of teaching that helps students to achieve the most from their Yoga practice, independent of age or physical limitations. The physical practice is built upon maintaining the integrity of the 6 main arches of the skeletal structure. The precise and personalized instruction of Karmuka Yoga aims to go beyond the physical practice of Yoga Asana and improve overall wellbeing by applying mindful attention to alignment, traction and internal action via the integration of Iyengar, Yamuna Body Logic, Rolling, Foot Fitness and Critical Alignment methodology. The mission of Karmuka Yoga is to help students take control of their body and mind while improving their overall posture, flexibility, strength and breath from the inside out.
Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR)
Starting work from the bone
The Karmuka Yoga courses, trainings and workshops integrate the foundations of Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) to educate and offer a deeper and more therapeutic experience of Karmuka Yoga. YBR consists of using the pressure of specialized balls and routines designed to activate, release and align all the different layers of both the physical and energetic body. Starting from the bone, the YBR routines follow the structural and energetic logic of the body so that in one session the student experiences greater skeletal alignment, more flexibility and less muscular tension, a relaxed nervous system and more active endocrine system.
Yamuna Body Logic
Realign the body through traction and pressure
Body Logic is the foundation work from which Yamuna Body Rolling was created.The practitioner uses her elbow to apply pressure to bones, going through the entire skeletal system. The practitioner addresses areas of pain, injury, or discomfort in a very personal way, using pressure and traction to realign the whole body. It is suggested, though not necessary, that the client have some prior experience with body work or body rolling.
Yamuna Table Treatment
A personalized treatment
Table Treatment is hands on ball rolling. In Yamuna Body Rolling, the ball provides the pressure, and the body position provides the traction. In Table Treatment, the client lays on a table while the practitioner provides the traction and uses the ball for pressure. Knee and shoulder issues respond very well to this treatment.
Yoga with ropes
In classes as well as in workshops, courses and trainings, when available, Karmuka Yoga works with ropes firmly anchored to the wall. With the ropes of Kurunta Yoga the students enjoy a great sensation of traction and stability during the work of Karmuka Yoga Asana. Kurunta Yoga acts as an excellent support for all forms of Yoga Asana but especially for back bends and inversions because they remove pressure from the lower and cervical spine. With the support of Kurunta Yoga in the activities of Karmuka Yoga students are able to maintain the poses for longer periods of time and deepen their understanding of internal action within the Asanas of Yoga without risk of damage to the skeletal structure.
Vinyasa Yin Yoga
Relieving stress through the flow of Vinyasana and Yin Yoga
Enjoy a Yoga class using the rhythm of breath to guide movement and increase fluidity. Explore how breathing guides fluid movement in order to reach the stable base of asana. These Yoga sessions interlace vinyasa sequences with elements of Yin & Yang Yoga. This mobilizes joints, releases tension from the body, improves flexibility and develops muscle tone. There are modifications for all levels to optimize balance. We ALWAYS end in a sweet deep relaxation. It requires a moderate level of effort and is suitable for any body without severe injuries or conditions.
Taking care of the feet, the base of our structure
Our feet are our foundation and affect the whole body. Knee and hip problems often begin in the feet.Using Foot Wakers and Foot Savers, the student is taught how to better support their body when standing, in Yoga Asana and how to move through the whole foot when walking. Many foot problems such as neuromas, bunions, hammer toes, and plantar fasciitis can be prevented or improved with regular practice.
