Alquimia Yoga is Victor Varana's personal yoga system of teaching and practice.
It was born out of Victor's life experience with philosophies, arts and practices found in life and through different yoga & martial arts traditions, as well as in different therapeutic & meditation sciences.
It is an integrative fusion, where body and energy channels alignment are as important as breathing consciously, powerfully and deep; using breath as the key of expansion and depth. There's a big focus on the navel point, to center and to extend or squeeze the body & progress in to the posture. In Alquimia Yoga there's an emphatic attention into holding the core power while flowing between the postures and the use of circular movements and the skilled way in which Martial Arts handle the energy.
It’s a moving meditation, within the intensive work of fitness and therapeutics. This practice develops and trains mental and physical balance, coordination, ability, strength and cat skills, purifies the organs and prevents diseases.
Each practice starts with a deep meditation that expands the senses and helps acquiring the capacity of being aware of each part of the body, the mind, the spirit and the energy, expanding the capacity of noticing, followed by warming exercises in which the joints are opened and relaxed to let space, estimulate the circulation, increase the power and get ready for the strengthening and fitness workout that goes between inertia and static.
