An Integral and Integrated Yoga

The whole is more than the sum of its parts

Anukalana literally means "integration" and embodies practices that are part of ancient and modern disciplines. The basis of Anukalana is Tantra, the ancient culture of India which offers practices for the development of consciousness in every area of ​​human life .

A large part of the integrated practices of Anukalana, especially those related to Yoga, are derived from Taoism. The Tao and Tantra in fact have many common principles and although on certain levels develop in a different way, on many levels you can do an integration that brings concrete results. Also Anukalana incorporates principles derived from the study of the biomechanics of physical education, myofascial anatomy and osteopathy.

The practice of meditation in Anukalana is learned in parallel to a path of personal growth based on the integration of models resulting from modern psychology and neuroscience. This allows you to address harmoniously all phases of the development of consciousness. During this path may in fact emerge unresolved issues that disturb the meditation and that can be addressed easily when the Eastern Philosophy is included also in the light of Humanistic Psychology.

The Yogic Lifestyle leads inevitably to reconsider the way people eat, live, breathe and so on. So Anukalana is also responsible for providing tools to understand oneself in light of constitutional types revealed in the ancient traditions and the most modern health disciplines. The health of the body is also favored by the integration of techniques derived from the world of rehabilitation (physiotherapy, osteopathy, etc.) That are integrated in the practice allowing musculoskeletal maneuvers that can be performed independently during the practice to quickly dissolve, tensions, somatizations and other conditions that prevent you from experiencing themselves in full and pleasant way in everyday life.

The integrated approach

If you are practicing yoga or if you are approaching this discipline, in some ways you are already walking the path of Integration.

Anukalana is the result of a deep research work started in the '90s and is still going on. This work has allowed us to bring the Integral and Traditional Yoga even closer to the needs of the people through the Integration of principles and techniques cultivated in ancient traditions such as Taoism and Tantra and modern sciences related to the welfare development and personal growth.

Anukalana Being an open system of integration, includes disciplines such as dance, martial arts, the Sports Science, The Free climbing, etc. where biomechanical and kinetic aspects are studied more closely, so they can become a source of inspiration for the work of integration by bringing very interesting contributions.

Aspects such as movement, breathing, postural alignment, etc. are studied in detail to be made clear, helping you find exactly the way in which your body needs to breathe, open, move and stop ... This way you can finally free yourself from the deeper visceral tensions and prepare you effectively to practice more advanced meditation.

Meditation is dealt with in a  4 of anga Yoga (Pratiyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi) being so the most important part of the path. The work of Anukalana integration has enabled us to bring light to these branches of Yoga through the integration of traditional principles such as Vipassana, Zen, Taoism and Tantric.

The main feature of Anukàlana is therefore to make possible the integration of disciplines that have common aims and principles giving rise to a practice which allows to obtain benefits on different levels simultaneously.

Anukalans is not a new Yoga style or method: it’s an approach to this thousand year old science based on integration with the objective of making its practice closer to the individual’s needs.

What is the difference between integral and integrated?

One of the popular approaches to the discipline of Yoga is the one called "Integral". The Integral Yoga is in fact Yoga in its complete form, all the eight practices called Asthanga (eight limbs) are contemplated and practiced when one is dedicated to Integral Yoga

The Integration Concept enlarges the area further as it responds to the natural human tendency to always seek new solutions and methodologies to evolve and expand its consciousness.

Anukalana Yoga integrates into the system (formerly Integral) of Traditional Yoga, additional principles that allow you to reach more easily a wide range of benefits that can be achieved with practice. The integration brings Integral Yoga closer to contemporary men and women by responding to their needs in a way suitable to the era in which they live.

Thanks to globalization, many evolutionary disciplines are meeting to find that in every part of the world, people have always sought self-realization, and for this purpose has developed techniques and very valuable experience regardless of culture, creed and religion.
