Hata Yoga & Vinyasana Yoga

It consists of body exercises, positions, dynamic and static sequences, guided relaxation and breathing cycles coordinated with the asanas. Asana postures allows to re-educate wrong postures, to correct repetitive and purely routine movements and to acquire greater stability, solidity and flexibility. It also allows to loosen up muscle tension, inner conflicts and to experience a state of unity between body and mind. It helps the development of a deeper sensibility, enhancing the expansion of consciousness and intelligence and the awareness of one’s own resources and strengths.


Shiatsu derives from the Japanese words shi (finger) and atsu (pressure).
Shiatsu considers body, mind and soul in their totality, that is each of these parts integrated with each other. This is why this practice tries to understand the causes of energy unbalance producing physical distress, rather than considering the symptom of the problem alone.
Shiatsu uses different diagnosis and treatment techniques employing the most simple and essential of man’s means: hands. The mere pressure of thumbs and palms acts on localized areas of the body along the paths of energy meridians. In this way organs and inner systems are stimulated and harmonized, thus activating the natural process of self-recovering.

The treatment can take place on the floor on a comfortable futon with the original technique of master Namikoshi. The session lasts about one hour. The treatment is practiced with loose clothes and, above all, not made of acrylic or synthetic fibres, therefore tracksuits, sweatshirts, kimonos.

The Zen Shiatsu practice gives manifold benefits. Though it is not possible to make a thorough list of positive benefits, some of the advantages of the treatment can be mentioned: it gives total psychophysical wellbeing, fights stress, improves and promotes metabolism; it helps to solve hormonal and bowel problems and disorders, alleviates neck pain, backache and headache, improves circulation, improves the drainage of the lymphatic system and the sleep-wake cycle.
