Activities at the Quinta Bamboo


Greetings to the sun in the morning yoga class.

Martina, authorized by Manju P.Jois teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the tradition of Sri T. Krichnamacharya, K.Pattabhi Jois and his son Manju P. Jois.

The āsanas (postures) are dynamically linked in a series with each other. Synchronization of breathing, movement and fixed focus promote key elements of yoga, awareness, alignment, devotion, energy and meditation.

The Vinyasasystem combines postures (asanas) in a flowing, harmonious sequence. Synchronizing special breathing technique (ujjayi) and movement (vinyasa) create a warming flow in the body, physical and emotional blockages can be solved.The circulation is stimulated, the body gets detoxified, strengthened, flexible and relaxed.

Martina's yoga lessons are designed so that each participant can develop an individual practice according to his own potential. She works with students of all levels and creates a personal yoga program, modifying and softening the practice accordingly, to help students to find their own strength and inner light.

Yoga is practiced in the outdoor shala (large outdoor space, covered with a roof), surrounded by soothing nature.

Wing Tsun Flow

Wing Tsun is a concept-based Chinese Martial Art and form of self-defense utilising both striking and grappling while specialising in real world, close-range combat.

Students of Wing Chun learn selfdefense techniques, including multiple attacker defenses.Realistic scenarios are always emphasized in training.

Using basic tecniques in various combinations, students develop an awareness and ability to defend against attacks.

Wing Chun does not exclusively rely on strength or power, from the outset students are trained to striked vulnerable targets rather than trying to match an opponant strength against strength.
