NALU Yoga Studio in El Cotillo, Fuerteventura we focus on private yoga classes, both for closed groups and individuals. We also offer one weekly open class which changes every week. The way we teach is deeply rooted in the tradition, but it is also based on the encounter between different disciplines that we have cultivated over time. These range from freediving breathing techniques, myofascial release and mindful movement, to more spiritual practices such as traditional Hatha Yoga. Our approach to personal flowering includes the body, the mind and the inner world: the practice of yoga embodies them all.
Yoga classes are taught with the deepest respect for the tradition, honoring the cultural roots of yoga and meditation, which will always be shared with an open mind and heart. Every class is deeply thought through and balanced according to energy and bodily differences, so that it becomes accessible. We offer a variety of possibilities to work on your existing practice or creating a new one: from deepening a specific aspect of yoga to learning how to use yogic techniques to improve your surfing, breathing, mental state and stress management.
Carolina’s yoga practice is based on traditional Tantric Hatha, a lineage deriving from Shri Vidya. It includes an in-depth study of the body, breathing, meditation and the nature of prana, the life force energy. This is synthesized in the archetypes of the moon, sun and fire. Carolina’s teaching combines both the traditional aspects of yoga and the use of breathing techniques from freediving and breathwork. This allows you to practice consciously, but also to work on practical goals, for example: fighting anxiety, improving breathing and resilience in water sports or cultivating mindfulness as a lifestyle. Carolina is an experienced yoga teacher, with 12 years of personal practice and 8 years of teaching practice. She holds more than 800h of teacher training hours.
Tantric Hatha Yoga practice works with three elements: the moon, the sun and fire. They are three symbols, archetypes and energies that allow the practitioner to set up a clear, effective and precise intention. The practice is invigorating, but always accessible. Each class always includes both asanas (postures), breathing exercises and meditation. Below you find a more in depth description of each one. We also teach Yin Yoga, Restorative and other ways to practice yoga, but this traditional methodology still informs them on an energetic level.
The lunar practice represents the basis of hatha yoga. You learn and deepen practices to develop awareness of mental activity and master non-reactivity. Through a specific use of asanas (postures), the ideal mental space for meditation begins to be created. The emphasis is on long holds in the poses, increasing the duration of the exhalation, and on stilling the mind through an introduction to meditation.
Sun is primarily concerned with the management and development of Prana, the life force. These practices are designed to balance between cultivating the energy we need to thrive, and developing the sensitivity needed to connect with the subtler layers of reality and the body. The practice therefore includes different tools such as asana, prana dharana, bandha, pranayama and meditation.
Fire practice is designed to convey the main methodologies related to the tantric practice of hatha yoga. These practices draw on all subtler elements of the tantric path, including bandhas, mudras, mantras and prana dharana, to access the very heart of Yoga. Your practice here becomes a deeply spiritual ritual. The real emphasis is on building the inner, spiritual fire, located in the center of the body, while directing awareness and energy into the spine (Kundalini practice).
