When talking about Yoga we could do it from many points of view. We could say that the practice of Yoga helps us to objectify the mind, the senses, the body, the emotions and the intelligence. And in this process of self-investigation, the cultivation and sublimation of the whole person results.
With the practice of yoga our health remains awake, dissipating tensions, pains, and we gain mobility. The Mind will remain calmer, and as a consequence calm will become and with it peace.
we would eliminate violence in a single generation, Dalai Lama.
On other occasions, it is the children who must enjoy this wonderful and enriching experience, maintain the connection with oneself.
- "Jungle" refers to where we live, a place full of beauty… and danger!
- "Life"; in Spanish, life.
- "Fullness"; in Spanish, plenitud.
The Jungle LifeFullness is a set of techniques and strategies both at the physical and psychological level, to improve our quality of life.
It is like a "toolbox" to cultivate our well-being and our health. The concept of "health" as we work on it can be divided into 5 levels:
- Physical level (the body itself).
- Mental level (the psyche, the intrapersonal part).
- Emotional level. (the affective)
- Social level (relationships, the interpersonal part).
- Spiritual level (the transpersonal part).
In the most physical part, we practice exercises that help improve joint mobility, postural hygiene, breathing, flexibility and relaxation. Digito-pressure and self-massage techniques are also used.
In the most psychological part, we work with visualization, affirmations, conscious autosuggestion and other techniques such as Mindfulness (exercises in full consciousness), based on the latest discoveries in neuroscience, epigenetics and quantum physics.
You can start to practice Life Fullness regardless of age or physical condition. May it be for an athlete who wants to improve specific skills, for a housewife who needs to "do something" to regain a little more health, for the elderly whose skills are diminished, or for anyone who needs effective tools to manage your stress in everyday life.
MEDITATION is an important part of this teaching.
Various types of exercises are practiced on the body part:
- martial arts (oriented towards self defense) and adapted functional training.
- of psychomotor skills that involve: stretching, joint mobility, coordination, laterality, balance, stability and postural control.
In the mental part, the exercises we practice are:
- concentration (visualization).
- of relaxing.
- emotional intelligence.
- transmission of constructive values (respect, sociability, responsibility and personal image).
The intention is to contribute to the mental (intellectual / cognitive), emotional (affective) and bodily (kinesthetic) development of young people to allow them to evolve their knowledge, skills and competencies in their present and future life.
The age for classes is usually between 8 and 15 years old.
It is a training method based on the toning of the deep muscles of the body.
Through the application of essential principles, such as concentration, center, control and breathing, simple movements are executed that help to awaken and develop body awareness in order to enhance the natural mechanisms of self-regulation (homeostasis) of the body / mind set.
It is a very effective technique, however, its learning is not complicated, and with clear and direct instructions you can experience a deep and lasting change in a short time.
The benefits are felt quickly (between 1 and 5 sessions), both physically (strength, balance, flexibility, coordination) and emotional and mental (greater self-esteem, confidence, calm, self-control, concentration and relaxation).
Etymologically, "Hypo" comes from the Greek and means: "low"; "Presio" comes from Latin and refers to "pressure".
Hypopressive gymnastics is a global technique based on postural and breathing reeducation exercises with a specific training methodology. The essential theoretical principles are: axial stretch, cervical elongation, active expansion of the shoulder girdle and rib opening in expiratory apnea.
The application of these principles in a wide variety of postures and movements has the following benefits:
- Tone the abdominoperineal muscles, in addition to offering lumbopelvic protection.
- Improve awareness of posture, breathing, vascularity and the management of intra-abdominal pressures.
- Prevent (and improve) hernias, urinary incontinence symptoms, and prolapses.
- Significant waist reduction.
- Improves sexual function.
The pillars of this school of Tai Chi (school derived from the "Chen" style called "Hun Yuan" - which means "principle of matter") contains 3 parts:
- The martial part (self defense)
- The therapeutic part (part that includes Taoist and Chi Krung exercises)
- The spiritual part (meditative techniques)
It can be started at any age, regardless of physical condition.
Kung = work, development or cultivation.
At the level of strict self-defense, we try to prepare the practitioner for a confrontation in a real situation. So we practice exercises for various distances: legs, fists, knees, elbows, grips, dislocations, throws, hand-to-hand fighting and ground. The use of weapons such as clubs, canes, knives and everyday objects (such as keys, magazine, bottle, backpack, etc.) is also included.
Apart from physical and technical preparation, we emphasize psychological preparation. Not only does fitness (different physical skills and abilities) matter, attitude (emotional and mental predisposition) matters even more
Especially in practice with the youngest (“Kung Fu for children” -from 5 to 15 years -approximately-).
The difference we make between martial art for adults and children is that in the case of children, we insist much more on the issue of moral discipline and emotional control. For them, the objective is not to stimulate aggressiveness, but to promote control of drives and dialogue capacities to resolve conflicts, thus enhancing self-confidence and empathy for others.
CONSULTATION IN PSYCHOLOGY
Among the services we offer we include a support consultation at the psychological level.
This service consists of applying different knowledge and praxis at the level of psychology to help people improve their quality of life.
At Karuna we are oriented towards humanistic and transpersonal psychology. The main characteristic of this branch of psychology is that we are focusing on the resources and skills that can help the person to alleviate suffering at the mental and emotional level.
Although it can sometimes be useful to look into the person's past to inquire about past traumas, in our case we prefer to put more emphasis on their present to design a better future, using the teachings provided by the latest discoveries of the past. new sciences such as epigenetics, neurosciences or quantum physics, since all these new sciences point towards the possibilities and move away from the old dogmas.
Through mutual dialogue we try to present an alternative to the perceptions that prevents the person from being well. We work together to change misconceptions for a more constructive personal image and a relationship towards more positive emotions and thoughts in order to enhance personal resources.
Within the E.P. We include the possibility of forming small groups (in principle up to a maximum of 3 people) as long as the objective is common (such as: Lose weight, improve your physical condition, your concentration, increase your strength, your flexibility, or learn to better manage stress and be more relaxed, etc.).
Both the hours, frequency and duration of the classes and the conditions will depend on the mutual agreement and according to the types of service and timing of the training.
