The word Yoga means “union” of the mind, body and spirit; these three fundamental aspects of our human nature, which we perceive separated from each other, are in fact deeply interconnected and “unified.”
Yoga teaches us, through exercise and practice, to consciously focus on ourselves, it teaches us to re-find a “connection” with our deepest human nature, through body movement and concentration of our mind. While practising yoga, over time, you’ll learn to observe the thoughts and as a result the emotions that arise, bringing to the surface the more subtle sensations.
Yoga encourage us to “listen to ourselves” to understand that in reality there is a “union” within us and in the world surrounding us and above all it helps us to remember that nothing is either perfect nor imperfect, and that most importantly nothing ever will remain unchanged.
One of the greatest teachings of yoga is that everything is subject to change, and sometimes, you need to learn to accept that changes will occur and to not get attached to the idea that everything remains unchanged. Yoga encourages us to investigate the deep reality of what happens inside and outside of us … in order to teach us not to act and to become conscious observers of ourselves.
I found that practising yoga is a great source of energy and joy and openness to the new. It stimulates intuition, creativity and curiosity. Yoga helps you to feel good and merge aspects of our lives that do not seem to be. This has stimulated in me the desire to share the practice with others. Thus IndaCo.Yoga Sicily was born, a project about teaching and divulgation of yoga, a community about sharing and confrontation. I chose the name indigo. because it is a special color that communicates calm, energy, change into introspection.
I believe that every yoga class is part of an inner journey, and in creating it I like to coordinate the dynamics of the movement, of the asanas, the breathing and sometimes I like to include a musical journey that accompanies the entire duration of the lesson, like a stream in crescendo that then slowly calms down to the stillness of the final relaxation.
Yoga is for everyone! There are no age limits, every body in each way and each time can approach the practice. To those who approach yoga for the first time: yoga is not a series of exercises in order to reach perfection or physical form (this is a consequence) yoga is primarily a doctrine of life, where the center is the observation of the mind (emotions) and the connection with the listening of your body (sensations) through movement, alignment and relaxation. Therefore it is not important to achieve the perfect pose, this is not the fundamental aim that yoga aspires to, but the path of growth and knowledge of the “self” and the way to achieve it.0
