What is cyoga
cYoga is the dynamic yoga style created by Carmen Aguilar. While the classes are rooted in the essence and the form of yoga, the delivery is adjusted to our world. cYoga helps students get better by accomplishing poses they could not do before, relieving pains and aches in their bodies, improving their breathing and concentration. cYoga also aims at keeping students engaged throughout the class so they can make a habit out of practicing yoga.
The Basic Elements
- cYoga classes are always different. No two classes are the same. Sequences are adapted to the theme and capabilities of the students.
- cYoga classes are always challenging. Regardless of the level, challenging cYoga classes keep the students engaged and focused thoughout the class.
- cYoga classes are always energizing. cYoga classes always aim to accomplish a peak pose difficult for the students so they leave with a sense of accomplishment.
- cYoga classes are always transformational. cYoga classes challenge your believes of what is possible, what you can do and what you cannot.
The teacher plays a key role in cYoga so everyone who teaches at The Lab must complete a teacher training with Carmen. The teacher sets the mood so the class is approachable and enjoyable for everybody, assists and adjusts students to get into more challenging poses and designs the sequence depending on the theme of the class and the level of the students.
The sequence of poses in the class is a key component of cYoga. The class will always have one or several peak poses around which the overall sequence will be created.
The class gives the student the best chance of accomplishing a challenging yoga pose. Often students find that they can do poses in cYoga classes that they cannot do on their own or in any other class.
While basic classes focus on poses and movement, more advanced classes add breathing and meditation exercises along with more advanced poses.
cYoga is for anyone and everyone wanting to work and feel better regardless of shape or athleticism. Our most devoted students are usually people that had never practiced yoga before, had tried but did not like it in the beginning or found themselves stuck, not advancing any more. Cyoga is the perfect style to kick start your practice or add new life and motivation when you are looking for just that.
