Taking Breath is a wholistic yoga class that aims at increasing peace of mind while regenerating the body. We address coordination, elasticity, internal alignment (vs outer lines), strength and balance as complementary elements. Through the awareness of the breath in both movement and meditation the practice aims at bridging physical and mental relaxation. Following different lines of thought, the class flows through a series of selected and adjusted body postures and is delivered from a scientific and somatic perspective through the exploration of human kinetics, the subtle body, and a wide range of images.

Results may include a decrease in mood swings, excessive tension, stress, toxins, excess fat, and/or an increase in vitality, connection and positive thinking. The intensity of the class is moderate and suitable for all levels of experience.

Emanuela’s Yoga practice and teaching are weaved into her scientific and artistic background. Initially influenced by the Ken Eyerman Technique of Bodywork and Movement/Yoga with Awareness, her extensive Indian travels, residencies, and the Bangalore SVYASA University/Swami Visharadananda, in the past decade her work has been enhanced by findings from international research on fascial anatomy and her ongoing practice of the Axis Syllabus. She has been teaching Yoga for 21 years.

A series of 9 recorded classes called “Breathing at the Edge “are also available for purchase for those who want to dive a little more into some of the theoretical ideas and images behind this approach to practice.
