2019, beginning of creation of objects related to the practice of Yoga. The Yogaterrae label is registered with the INPI to identify all Yoga mats, direct and intimate companions of any Yogi or Yogini wishing to practice this ancestral discipline with quality natural materials. The Yoga mat naturally seems to us to be the very first reference article to launch a whole range of accessories related to the world of Yoga. Others will follow in 2021 such as Bio-environmental cosmetics which are already being studied with future partner craftsmen, essential oils from Provence which are in preparation, simple organic cotton T-shirts which are also currently designed and prototyped for spring-summer 2021...

All these mini creations of objects and accessories all related to the world of Yoga are obviously part of the continuity of creation of more imposing complementary objects like those below billed as Times Square, RockWall, Bel Air California.

ROCKNWALL

FIRST YOGA ART DESIGN OBJECTS

Origin and meaning

Deco style well codified with specific top-of-the-range materials, such as tesserae from Bisazza, the world leader in production in its field and located in Milan, Italy. Each first effigy is each time a unique and charismatic work to the delight of its buyers with special requests. Here as an example, a couple of cheetahs intended to be scripted in a Spa in Annecy. Beautiful, graceful and inspiring according to their owners, they have taken on the appearance of a race in a Yoga environment where Traditional, Spirituality and Intensity prevail.

Principles and Benefits

Unlike Ashtanga, this dynamic style of Yoga is performed freely regarding the asanas and their sequence. It depends solely on your will and your abilities to fully enjoy good physical exercise.

It is nevertheless a pro Yoga which solicits the body, the mind and the breath By intimately linking a regular and almost continuous flow of postures with a well-controlled breath (a good pranayama ), this style allows free and creative sequences. Classes that last approximately 60 to 90 minutes help develop strength, endurance and flexibility. Expect to sweat!

At the end of the session, it is always customary to practice the "Savasana" posture, in other words the corpse position; don't be afraid, it's about lying on your back to clear your mind and relax!

In short, this free style has all the favors to give a well "sculpted" body and will open up a greater dimension of being.

BEL AIR CALIFORNIA

FIRST INNER SIGNS OF SIMPLCITY

Origin and meaning

In Sanskrit, the term means "rolled up or coiled". Its practice is based on mastering our energy.

Initially perceived in the United States around 1890, it was introduced in Europe in the 1930s and then emerged from secrecy during the hippie period in California in the 1970s thanks to the master Yogi Bhajan.

This practice of Yoga is nevertheless very rare in the West because although effective, it can reveal delicate emotional states which can lead to psychological shocks. It is not recommended for fragile people, depressive or bipolar types. True Yogis in whom one has full confidence must instruct the sessions

Imbued with spirituality, this style of Yoga is also called Original Yoga because the classes take place with mantra chanting, sounds (chanting*), meditation and breathing.

The Kundalini claims the existence of the primordial energy present in each of us and evolving in a channel called "Sushumna" located in the spinal column which goes from the first chakra to 'at the highest chakra, the one at the top of the skull.

Sometimes related to tantrism which uses sexuality to merge body and soul, feminine and masculine, to reach orgasm without the emission of fluids, so as not to losing sexual energy.

The truth would be to say that if one masters this energy, one can acquire a true awakening of self-awareness. It is a calm Yoga.

* Psalmody: vocal technique which consists of reciting a text on a single note, without voice inflection, of the monochord type.

Principles and Benefits

The postures are relatively secondary and complete the work on the psyche. Here the style favors the intellect more than the physical.

This practice focuses more specifically on particular points of the body. Asanas which are repetitive hygienic exercises called "Kriyas" require a good mastery of body and mind. This practice is extremely demanding and energizing physically and emotionally.

The style is focused on the inside, the goal being the connection between the different chakras Multidimensional, this practice uses sound, breath and rhythm to circulate energy within throughout the body.

It is also known to release buried emotions or energies from the past that are trapped in the body or wrapped around the spine; this is called the release of the so-called kundalini energy.

Once released, one can aspire to more potential. The technique is so favorable that the effects can be almost immediate and visible.

Recommended mat types

No special mats are needed here. Anyone can fit. A simple turban or even a "Mala" can be enough to help channel the energies.

YIN YOGA

SPIRITUAL AND GENTLE YOGA

Origin, type and meaning

Born in the 1970s, he was initiated by Paulie Zink, an expert in martial arts and Taoist Yoga, then later instructed by Suzann and Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark and Biff Mithoefer.

We speak of this style in Yin to designate the intuitive and the immobility, unlike the other Yogas which are rather Yang ie dynamic.

This so-called silent style of meditation remains in a tradition of neutrality where all judgment is excluded. Invented about twenty years ago, this very gentle practice of Yoga on the floor lying at 45° on a support is intended to help you stay in a seated position for meditation. Muscle stimulation remains at a minimum. This dimension style more spiritual than all the others is a praise of slowness.

Principles and Benefits

The asanas are held for a long time (3 to 5 minutes) and facilitated by accessories for optimal relaxation (blocks, bricks, stretching straps, cushions, bolsters or other ). Ground releases are orderly on focus. The stretching of connective tissues is done in direct connection with a very intense emotional release.

Over 90 minutes, we only do 8 to 10 postures to optimize each one of them. Everything is done to develop inner calm, flexibility and reduce tension due to stress. Being a rather passive practice since sitting or lying down, it allows stretching of the fascias* and aims to restore their length and elasticity, especially at the level of the knees, pelvis and sacrum as well as at the level of the spine.

In this style of Yoga, you don't sweat, you sort of stop time and then start again better.In our ultra-connected society, this discipline is really taking off and that's good

This style allows you to work in muscular relaxation on the meridians which, in traditional Chinese medicine, represent the various interconnected channels of the human body through which vital energy circulates, the famous Chi or Qi.

In Yin Yoga, we learn to refocus, to respect ourselves, to accept ourselves, to bring back our memories, in short, to find calm and to listen to it.. .

Physical activity being at its minimum, it is advisable to have rather warm clothes, yoga socks among others, but also a sleep mask to better distance ourselves from the world around us and get closer to our inner soul.

* Fasciae represent fibromuscular membranes that cover anatomical structures.

Recommended mat types

Rather "cocoon" rugs, soft, thick and warm, those made of TPE do the job very well.

Tapis de yoga Iyengar Yoga TPE liege naturel caoutchouc naturel antidérapant épais écologique YOGATERRAE marque française

IYENGAR YOGA or TH YOGAÉRAPEUTIC

TRADITIONAL AND GENTLE YOGA

Origin, type and meaning

Named after its creator BKS alias Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar who, following an accident, developed this discipline in the 1970s to deepen different postures intended to treat certain areas of the body.

This traditional style has purely therapeutic aims closely linked to a lot of rigor and concentration. This style starts from Hatha Yoga and is based on the divine texts of Patanjali*

* Texts on the general thought of the nature of the origins of the universe, of human life... We are talking about the "Yoga Sutras of Patanjali" which are texts written by the Sage Patanjali 200 years BC comprising 195 aphorisms which themselves are multiple deep thoughts summarized and concise to be easily memorized.

Yoga draws here all its power, its philosophy.

Principles and Benefits

With 90-minute sessions, this practice is accompanied by accessories (bricks, bolsters, straps, ropes or chair) to finalize very carefully organized sequences and perform postures in depth in perfect alignment. Some postures by influx of blood to the brain can really provide real well-being (for example the posture head down against a wall held by straps).

It is a Yoga aimed at perfection and precision and rather intended for those who want to rise from an intermediate level. This style cultivates control, strength and stability for a real awareness of body and mind. Lending itself to a great deal of precision, this style can have therapeutic virtues for people recovering from certain injuries.

Little physically demanding, it is especially so mentally because it requires a lot of concentration.

Recommended mat types

Absolutely non-slip mats made of natural cork or natural rubber are preferred here to perfect the asanas and allow advanced Yogis Yoginis to perfect their techniques.

Tapis de yoga Nidra Yoga TPE liege naturel caoutchouc naturel antidérapant épais écologique YOGATERRAE marque française

YOGA NIDRA or YOGA of SLEEP or YOGA of REGENERATION

SPIRITUAL AND GENTLE YOGA

Origin, type and meaning

Existing for thousands of years, it was developed in the 1940s-50s by Swami Satyananda Saraswati; it has its origins in Tantric Yoga

This practice takes place over 30 to 40 minutes through breathing exercises and plunges us into semi-consciousness. This is called deep relaxation.

According to legend, Brahma, the Hindu creator god, slept between each successive creation of the World..

Sophrology is inspired by this discipline.

Principles and Benefits

It is practiced lying down according to the posture of Savasana ie the one called posture of the corpse. With your eyes closed and still, you recite mantras that encourage you to let go. This unusual situation in the middle of the day aims to better manage one's emotions, take time, evacuate hostile thoughts and reduce stress and anxiety.

By visualizing positive images on which we feel intimately good, we really learn to let go, something impossible in our modern society if the decision to stop time is not action. Nidra effectively treats insomnia and regulates healthy brain function.

The session must be organized on the formulation of an intention and a will, which is called "sankalpa" and which must be your jealously guarded secret at the shelter from the judgment of others.

This sankalpa can also be repeated just before falling asleep or upon awakening when consciousness oscillates between sleep and wakefulness which is called the hypnagogic state.

Yoga Nidra promotes a state of openness that can distance us from a certain rationality, from an overly analytical thought that can confine us to inert and sterile attitudes. This decision, this permission to think about..., can inspire us to take charge of our lives and responsibly adjust our destiny, the one we really want.

In fact, we do everything to get closer to yogic sleep without falling asleep. Without an external disturbing element, we learn indiscriminately to control our emotions.

This technique is often practiced at the end of a Hatha Yoga class to end the session gently and find yourself.

Recommended mat types

A simply thick and comfortable mat is enough. All those presented on Yogaterrae are perfect, materials and colors to everyone's taste. A blindfold can be useful to more quickly let go, isolate yourself and think.

THE POWER YOGA

SPORTY AND DYNAMIC FITNESS YOGA

Origin, type and meaning

Originally from California, founded by Beryl Birch Bendere in the 80s, this dynamic practice of Yoga which is part of a "fun" movement has its origins in Fitness, Ashtanga and Vinyasa. To make the sessions more dynamic, they take place to music, in a studio heated to over 30°C and focus on the proper synchronization of breathing with movement.

This discipline is called Strength Yoga because the sessions are often physical challenges since the postures are maintained over time

Principles and Benefits

The sessions always begin with the eternal "Sun Salutations" and the "Ujai or Ujjayi" breathing synchronized with the movements. "Ujai" which means "victorious breath" in Sanskrit is a technique that regulates the duration of inhaling and exhaling. It can be very beneficial because it increases gas exchange in the blood by deepening breathing and also reduces the cortisol produced by the adrenal glands which is a stress hormone. Ujai also helps regulate the parasympathetic nervous system which is an essential component of the autonomic nervous system which is responsible for the automatic functions of the body.

In short, without going into too much detail, this technique can help slow heart rate and blood pressure with the aim of conserving energy.

Recommended mat types

You can choose for this style of Yoga, a good compromise between thick enough for comfort but not too thick either to ensure good stability. The natural cork mats and natural expert rubber can perfectly match their function.

THE GREEN YOGA

SPIRITUAL AND GENTLE YOGA

Origin, type and meaning

Created by Céline Miconnet, this new style of Yoga is a symbiosis of several types of Yoga and aims to reconnect with oneself but also and above all with Nature. Combining Iyengar, Vinyasa, Reiki, Bioenergy, Hypnosis and Meditation, Green Yoga allows you to feel the energies. Living all, very often, in a world very demanding of energy, Green Yoga makes it possible to find a sense of unity between the human, the animal and the plant.

Principles and Benefits

In principle, the sessions revolve around daily spiritual practices called "Saadhana" and recommend "touching" the different elements of Nature such as the ground, rocks, trees and the flowers. Some classes can take place blindfolded to optimize the 5 senses and only on postures in the name of animals to better connect with Nature, some others focused this time on the sun, the moon and the light for more Earth, Body and Spirit connection. This is called the "Green Sadhana". This style is now referred to as personal development therapy.

Recommended mat types

No real obligation to roll out a carpet if you want to "touch" Nature, for example if you perform postures on a rock or other. However, if the preference is to protect yourself from the ground and still stay in contact with an ideally natural material, that made of natural cork can be quite suitable.
