Living Well Takes TrainingWe are dedicated to helping you be fit in mind and body to
let your soul soar.
It takes a good amount of physical fitness be able to lift your groceries, or kids, to garden, or even to sit for extended periods of time.
It also takes a certain amount of mental training to have good relationships with others and ourselves.
We believe in empowering you to help you achieve your goals, by creating practices and experiences that are:
a) Evidence based
b) Holistic (considers the whole person)
Keeping the intention to capture the purest essence of what Yoga has to offer, we want you to experience it in a way that is more universal and accesible.
¿What do our sessions look like?
We usually start by talking about something that enriches life somehow.
Then we move the body using whatever tools we have available, in order to achieve different objectives, which vary according to the group or the individual. Usually, there is a good amount of strength and flexibility, stability, balance, and cardiac fitness involved.
Then we move towards taking care of the mind, using meditations that cultivate attention, compassion, gratitude, or some other important aspect of living.
Akila means Integral, or Universal.
We are heavily influenced by Yoga, Qi-Gong (the basis of Tai chi), and modern sports medicine approaches to conscious movement.
We do not shy away from being spiritual, and when we say «Integral» we mean the whole individual, and a plethora of practices that support that, be it dance, singing, etc.
And when we say Universal, we mean that we do not profess nor teach any particular religion. Our understanding of Spiritual includes the capacity to be skeptical, curious, open, and looking for the truth.
