Uniting Physical Fitness and Mental Relaxation
The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root word yuj that means union, or balance. With this concept in mind, Calasanz main objective in creating Pau Fa Yoga™ was to unite the principles of martial arts and yogic meditation to create a dynamic physical conditioning program for men or women that has long been a favorite of both private and group fitness clientele.
Calasanz Pau Fa Yoga™ combines physical fitness exercises and practical martial arts applications, known as bunkai, with the style, grace, and fluidity of yogic stretching techniques and the serenity of meditation.
