Join us to experience how Osteopathy & Yoga complement each other and realize your body has the natural ability to heal itself;your mind has the amazing power to create balance. Enjoy the beauty of nature, the purity of the environment and the pleasure of healthy vegetarian eating. 

Osteopathy and Yoga, both, seek to promote balance and healing.Yoga seeks the attainment of consciousness;osteopathy aims for providing support to health.

Osteopathy embraces the philosophy that the body has an innate, natural ability to self-regulate and to heal itself.Any obstruction that impedes the circulation of fluids within the body is the focus of osteopathic assessment and treatment. In order to administer an appropriate treatment plan, the osteopath begins by interviewing the patient, performing a complete osteopathic assessment, assessing the position, mobility and quality of certain tissues, fluids and rhythms of the body.Once the nature of the patient’s condition is determined, treatment is directed toward helping the body regain its optimal ability to circulate the fluids unimpeded and in sufficient quantity. This restoration of circulation leads to the body’s natural ability to regulate and heal itself.

On the other hand, the yoga postures or asanas, exercise every part of the body, stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the spine and the entire skeletal system. Keep in mind that anyone can practice yoga!They work not only on the body’s frame but on the internal organs, glands and nerves as well, keeping all systems in radiant health.The yogic breathing exercises known as pranayama revitalize the body and help to control the mind.The practice of positive thinking and meditation gives increased clarity, mental power and concentration.The whole yoga practice is integral, helping the seeker to find health, inner peace and joy in life.Through Yoga we undo knots, we undo blockages, allowing the energy to flow into the center, we find balance and we discover, sense or feel our true nature, our full potential as human beings.

The cranio sacral therapy is part of the osteopathy treatment. When the osteopath rest his or her hands very lightly on the body and engage on a subtle level, can feel rhythmic motion being expressed throughout the body, as if the whole body were gently breathing – not just the usual breathing of the lungs, but a more gentle, subtle, rhythmic motion.

The osteopath can feel the subtle movements and flow in the dura mater. Life expresses itself as motion. At a deep level of our physiological functioning all healthy, living tissues subtly ‘breathe’ with the motion of life – a phenomenon that produces rhythmic impulses, which can be palpated by sensitive hands.

This interaction enables the patient’s system to respond to the therapist’s gentle contact addressing and resolving any disturbances and resistances to the natural flow of health.

The yoga philosophy states the existence of three bodies: the physical body, the astral body and the causal body. In the astral body there are more than 72,000 nadis (channels where the energy flows). The yoga practice focuses on the flow of energy in three main channels: Ida, Pingala and Sushumna. When energy flows into the center, into Sushumna, we feel healthy, balanced and happy.
The dura mater, is a thick membrane that surrounds the brain and spinal cord.If we have to give and indication of the location of the Sushumna or central channel, in the physical body, we would say along the spine to the top of the head.

These brief ideas can make us understand or sense how yoga and osteopathy complement each other, how both can help us regain our health and balance. And of course go beyond the physical and discover who we really are. Tapping into the core of our being the unbounded potential of pure infinite awareness


This is an opportunity to dedicate our precious time in life to understanding the most sacred ancient knowledge of Yoga, not only from a theoretical point of view, but mainly from practical experience as well as discovering how osteopathy can help us find our balance, enjoying the peaceful environment of our holistic center.
