Anukalana Yoga, Integrated Yoga

Anukalana in Sanskrit means INTEGRATION.

Anukalana Yoga’s Integral and Integrated approach is the result of an extended reserch on the human anatomy and different discipline integration, that its creator, Jacopo Ceccarelli Yogendra, started in the late 90s in the attempt to find the most natural and complete way to practice Yoga.
There are two different approaches to Yoga practice: dynamic-Shakti (based on Vinyasa) and static-Shiva (Hatha). Anukalana embraces both paths. The dynamic approach harmonize the movement with the breath, stimulating the vital functions and awakening our lost instinct (our natural tendency is to move ).

In the static, introspective approach, the focus is on holding the positions in order to allow the alignments and the openings while developing awareness.

Anukalana Yoga’ s practice follows the physiological and seasonal ‘s cycles: in some phases of our life we need a dynamic and energetic practice to let off stress and hardships or become more active and vibrant, while in other periods we need a practice that bring us within through asanas performed slowly and gently. Both practices favour the flow of Prᾱhna in the body thanks to the alignments and the respiratory techniques developed in Anukalana’s approach: INTRA-ARTICULAR BREATHING and CELLULAR BREATHING.

The asana sequences associated with the Cellular Breathing open up the energy channels and awake, rise and harmonize the vital energy. Asana and Pranayama serve to prepare the practitioner for deep meditation.

“Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God.”
