Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Amaranta
Mondays at 6pm & Tuesdays at 8:30am
Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga
A powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements. This type of yoga makes it a vigorous and revitalizing form of physical fitness. It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina in one session. We’ll finish the class with some minutes of Yoga nidra, which is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.
I’m a Mexican yoga teacher passionate about photography and traveling. Practicing mainly Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga, I decided to take a teacher course in order to deepen into my practice. I went to Rishikesh, India, where I took a 200 hour Teachers Training Course at Vinyasa Yoga School registered in Yoga Alliance. After that, I started teaching Vinyasa Yoga and Power Yoga in Playa del Carmen and San Miguel de Allende, México. I lived in Bali, Indonesia where I taught in different schools and holistic centers. I love sharing my practice with others so they can experience the benefits of Yoga as a healing, strengthening, calming and empowering practice. “Control your breath to control your mind… Control your mind to control your body.”

Es una práctica una vigorosa y revitalizante que incorpora fuerza, flexibilidad, balance, ejericicio cardiovascular, además de una conexión física y mental.

Practicando principalmente Vinyasa, Ashtanga y Hatha Yoga, decidí tomar un curso para convertirme en maestra de yoga con el fin de profundizar en mi práctica. Por tal motivo, viajé a Rishikesh, India, en donde obtuve mi certificado de 200 hour YTTC como maestra de en Vinyasa Yoga School, escuela registrada y avalada por Yoga Alliance. Después de eso, empecé a dar clases de Vinyasa, especializándome mayormente en el estilo conocido como Power Vinyasa, en Playa del Carmen y San Miguel de Allende, México. Así mismo, viví un año en Bali, Indonesia, donde tuve la oportunidad de impartir clases principalmente de Vinyasa Flow y Power Vinyasa, en diferentes estudios y centros holísticos. Mi pasión es compartir mi práctica con los demás para que las personas se den cuenta de los beneficios del Yoga como una práctica sanadora, tonificadora, calmante y que te permite sentir y hacer una conciencia de tu cuerpo. “Controla tu respiración para controlar tu mente… Controla tu mente para controlar tu cuerpo.”

Awakening to Pure Awareness:
Non-Dual Meditation with Phil Roger
Fridays from 11 am to 1 pm
Suggested Donation: 100 pesos
Non- Dual Meditation
Gently guided meditation, contemplation of wisdom teachings and commentary combined with heart centered discussion help us explore the ultimate questions of our existence. These wisdom teachings take us to the edge of the conceptual mind leaving us no option but to jump into the emptiness of pure awareness, into the vast ocean of source consciousness. The focus of the class is not only on meditation but also on the process of releasing the obstacles to our awakening. This is the end of seeking, the prodigal essence returning home to it’s source.
Phil Roger has been following his spiritual path for fifty years. His journey has taken him through Vedanta, Taoism, Mystical Christianity, Jung, Native American spirituality and most recently into the mysteries of Vajrayana Buddhism. He has often been a teacher in most of these. He is now exploring a very clear and direct path to awakening, free of the complexities of traditional approaches. Phil lives in San Miguel full time, exploring the spiritual nature of various art forms and the celebration of creativity.

Taiji (T’ai Chi) is an ancient Chinese exercise practiced for health and self-defense. It is characterized by slow, gentle movements and sometimes described as meditation in motion. It emphasizes balanced, low impact, whole body movements. It positive affects on stress, focus, arthritis and a host of other health issues. As scientific research increasingly shows, regular T’\ai Chi practice can have significant impact on mental, emotional and physical health and well-being. Or as an old Chinese saying goes, “Practice Taiji and you will develop the pliability of a child, the strength of a lumberjack and the peace of a sage.”

This program is noted for its research-based health benefits.
