Yoga, The Spiritual Side
Mind, body and spirit come together in our advanced spiritual yoga sessions
What is yoga?
Yoga is many things. The root of the word comes from the ancient Sanskrit language and it means union. With the guidance of a yoga specialist, it is a process through which our awareness is driven from the surface, from the more external layers of our perception, to the deepest essence of life which resides within — The Centre of our Being.
What is AYP?
At Human Spiritual Evolution, we practice and share mainly Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) .
AYP is an open and integrated system of yoga practices that takes a safe, efficient and modular approach to the practice of yoga for enlightenment.
The core is Deep Meditation, supported by advanced breathing techniques (pranayamas) such as spinal breathing and other practices, like Samayama, to cultivate 'stillness in action'.

Jattis - Warm-upEach session starts with the release of superficial tension through gentle movements that loosen joints and warm muscles.
Asanas - PosturesThen practitioners dive into a series of traditional postures, which reach and release deeper tensions. All postures are supported by conscious and guided breathing as per Gitananda Yoga.
Pranayama - Energy/BreathingThe class then moves into pranayama techniques which, along with releasing physical tensions, start to address and purify the deeper layers of the nervous system as well as redistribute the energy within in a way that is conducive to meditation. The principal pranayama technique is Spinal breathing, for the cultivation of the nervous system to conduct ecstasy and prepare for Meditation.
Deep MeditationThe end of Spinal breathing marks the beginning of a Deep Meditation, for the cultivation of Inner Silent Awareness and the consequent cultivation of Bliss.
SamyamaThe sitting part of our practice ends with Samyama, an advanced technique to help direct the energy created by meditation in to many aspects/qualities of our life.
RestAfter the practice, we rest lying down to let all the energies distribute within our body and mind.
Theory sharingFollowing the practice session, there will be a short time for some guidance and tips on the techniques, yoga theory and space to ask questions or share experiences. Practitioners are also encouraged to take on the practice at home, during daily life, and adapt it to their own needs, desires and capabilities.
