*YFY – Yin Fascial Yoga
Yin Fascial Yoga is an integration of Yin Yoga, 5 Elements Qigong, Myofascial Release and Mindfulness. These special tools work together on the fascial system in order to release traumatic imprints and to dissolve residual tensions helping to heal and strengthen the body, balance the emotions and calming the mind and spirit.  

The aim of this complete and ancient mixes of practices is to open and balance the 3 bodies – the physical, the subtle and the causal – offering harmony, balance, presence and embodiment, through a somatic experiencing.  

Yin Facial Yoga effectively releases restrictions that are present at the body’s physical and energetic level, reprogram the body’s holding patterns, increasing health on a cellular level and conditioning the myofascial system. It addresses the importance of the integration of Myofascial Release techniques and 5 elements Qigong to their current Yoga practice.  

If we speak from an energetic level, this work opens and balances the chakras, nurturing the organ system of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), detoxifying, strengthening and healing, whilst opening the meridian system.  

The Method   
It combines conscious spontaneous fascia release movements with long held Yin Yoga asanas detoxifying the all the organ systems, strengthens the joints, conditioning the fascia, boosting energy levels, dissolving traumas, grounding and centering the body and the mind. This is the power of the Yin Fascial Yoga practice.  

One of the techniques we use are the Myofascial release balls on specific Myofascial trigger and acupuncture points. That targets and helps to open the fascia, either directly into an organ or into the bands of constricted fascia areas blocking the chakras from opening. The work also employ the balls to release specific points of held tension, such as the hips and the diaphragm, which greatly enhances the bodies´ ability to let go of tensions and traumas achieving deeper relaxation levels.  

By adding specific Daoist energy circulation techniques as ‘Microcosmic Orbit and embryonic breathing’, we can influence the flow of life’s force energy that runs through the body.  

Ultimately, the Art of being present and mindfully being with whatever arises inside our practice, is the foundation to our spiritual journey. Inside the practice we find a place that is outside of judgement or criticism that allows everything to be as it is in the moment. It allows space for old feelings that were forced away and never felt, held deep inside the fascia, to be lived and felt, allowing those parts of us to move on. Dissolving the symptoms of separation, whilst allowing us to experience our completeness as feeling human being, able to be with each breath that life offers us.  

The Fascia World  
When we re-educate ourselves to move from the fascia, we move from a feeling based expression of the body, less from a mind form, that perfect internal picture of what i should look like but don’t.  

When moving from feeling we allow our kinesthetic awareness to become heightened, allowing us to move in our own individual way, regardless of conditions which keeps us in our own center, not looking to the outside for perfect role models to emulate.  

Fascia is the very glue substance that holds all 11 body systems, the meridians, the Chakras, the emotions and thoughts together. It moves as a complete singular expression, where all parts of us are engage at the same time. Nothing is just from the mind or just from the body, but a complete and singular expression. So when using fascia as a foundation to our yoga practice, it becomes easy to understand what is going on within our own body and why when we look at a holistic picture of ourselves we understand ourselves as a complete human being.  

The process of releasing the fascia is fundamentally rooted in unlinking tight adhesive chains of connected tissues, to allow blood flow and Qi back into areas that were holding the tensions and slowly of time creating deeper and deeper problems in the body. Once unlinked and open we can direct the fascia to grow into a more efficient, balanced structural body form, free of tension and trauma, as if re scalping a body form that is more efficient and adaptable for our life journey.  

The Relationship of Trauma and Fascia  
Many scholars believe that pain and trauma are incidents prevented from being completed. These can be single damaging events such as a car accident, continuous bombardments requiring emotional defenses, or over-training of isolated muscles that lock the body into a recognized pattern. Traumas can be considered anything that keep us locked in a physical, emotional, behavioral or mental habit. Recovery from trauma is the process of the body finding balance and freeing itself from constraints. All too often, the recovery process is halted, preventing the traumatic occurrence from completing.  

There are many reasons traumatic incidents cannot be completed, creating stagnation and causing a cascade of physiological protective mechanisms to separate the trauma from affecting everyday functioning. Because our bodies and emotions can only safely handle a limited amount of stress, trauma results whenever an experience exceeds our abilities to handle and cope with its consequences. The energy of the trauma is stored in our bodies’ tissues (primarily muscles and fascia) until it can be released. This stored trauma typically leads to pain and progressively erodes a body’s health.

Sai Calder
Sai has been studying and working with the body and it’s energy system, in relation to health and medicine in movement for over 20 years.

His journey to self-discovery started at a young age of 13 when he as a teenager shared precious time with a Benedictine monk who taught philosophy and planted the seeds for a spiritual practice in Sai. At 17 his star connected him with a Daoist master who introduced him to the principles and techniques of the philosophy. Traveling for the first time to India in 1996, he would dive in the yoga and Meditation world.

This encounters would aligned him at a very tender age with his dharma. «For as long as I can remember I was always watching and feeling the energy patterns of how life was working, of how people communicated to each other and themselves», says Sai. His studies evolved to learn Qigong, Dynamic Yoga, Yin Yoga, Meditation, Martial Arts, Health Coaching, Functional Fascia Training, Chinese Medicine and Resistance Strength Training.

In Sai´s words: “My passion is deepening the unfolding connection to life, through health, awareness, connection to spirit and longevity. I believe our short, precious time on this planet is to be celebrated, by cultivating through, our own personal truth, the light that shines within each of us.”

Beta Lisboa
Beta’s spiritual life purpose began at a very tender age. Inspired by her roots in Brazil, the country she was born, Beta was brought up surrounded by Luso, Afro and Brazilian rituals and worships, all inspired by the spirit of the land, the vibrant tropical nature of the country and its rich History. Beta as a young girl had the perfect constellation to be raised as a spiritual person.

With 9 years old she was connected to her altar, which was full of angels and other shiny beings. Being only 13, Beta started to connect to Allan Kardec’s spiritism and began to understand the cycle of karma and rebirth. Not very long after, a very close family member would introduce her to Osho’s work. «Reading the book of Osho got me intrigued, it was like a whole new Universe opened up to me». The path was set and yoga and meditation came right after and so life took her to India to practice with the biggest yoga Gurus of the contemporary times. After practicing at the recognized Iyengar´s Institute in Pune and in Mysore with Sri K. Pathabi Jois in Mysore, Beta understood the spiritual transformation through the physical mastery of the asanas. Travels took her to Tiruvannamalai, where she became absorbed by the Advaita Vedanta teachings of Ramana Maharshi and other great masters, such as Sri Mooji.

The complement between her South American roots and the Asian travel and studies gave Beta a global understanding about what today is the trend in the conscious world: the fusion of the ancient wisdom from East and West. Due to that Beta has the ability of understanding different worlds and cultures with its feelings and emotions making her healing method efficient, tender and deep.

A refined combination of Yin & Yang Yoga styles, Mindfulness, bodywork, Myofascial Release Therapy, contemporary anatomy studies, Trauma Release breath work, Somatic Experience, eastern and western holistic health perspectives and meditation, they all combine into a complete methodology and transformational tool of Dynamic Spiral and Yin Fascial Yoga.

Beta travels the world with her life companion Sai sharing their teachings and love for a fulfilled and conscious life.
