Yoga classes with views of the sea
Yoga is an activity that connects the body, breathing, and the mind. It involves body postures, breathing exercises, and meditation for improving an individual’s holistic wellbeing. Yoga emerged as a spiritual practice thousands of years ago. Today, most western people do yoga as a weekly exercise and as a way of relieving stress. This age-old discipline involves a lifestyle that heals, cares for, and strengthens the body, mind, and soul through the practice of asanas, breathing, and relaxation.
So what are asanas?
Asanas are body postures or positions designed to strike a balance between mind and body. These postures call for concentration, spatial awareness, and enough suppleness to coordinate each skill and know which parts to activate and relax, as well as the control of breathing with each movement. Asanas have different levels of difficulty, ranging from the most straightforward (for beginners) to the most demanding (for advanced students).

The restorative yoga organised in Getxo is the best way of doing exercise while relaxing body and mind with the finest views out over Ereaga Beach. All the yoga sessions at the Igeretxe end with guided meditation or yoga nidra sleep. For those people that are not familiar with this discipline, Yoga Nidra was developed by the yoga masters Swami Satyananda Saraswati and Swami Sivananda, with the aim being to reach that state of consciousness that lies between waking and sleep. In fact, Yoga Nidra in Sanskrit translates as mental sleep yoga or conscious sleep yoga. It is a passive form of yoga designed to achieve a state of deep yet conscious meditation.
