Master class directed by Gustavo Ponce, creator of the GPBALANCE method, which combines hormonal yoga with ancestral techniques from India, China and Japan, which makes it a disease prevention system and accompanies the healing of hormonal ailments typical of men and women .
GPBALANCE is a method created by Gustavo Ponce based on traditional yoga, honoring the Indian philosophical heritage, while offering a modern and concrete method. This hormonal yoga technique will allow you to restore your vitality and naturally rebalance your hormonal health and/or that of your students/patients.
This event is open to those who want to teach the method, but also to those who are interested in learning it for their personal practice.
The 5 sections of GPBALANCE:
The study of different breathing and postural techniques: Kaya Stairyam Sankalpa, Bija Mantras, Prana Vidya, Kapalabhati, Bhastrika 1, Bhastrika 2. These techniques work on stillness, stability and concentration of body and mind as well as the channeling of energy.
Preparatory work of simple postures lying on the back, accompanied by visualizations and the various breathing techniques studied in the previous section. This enables us mobilize energy around pelvic region.
Standing postures whose primary objective is to strengthen the flexibility, strength, balance and agility of our whole body. This also enables us to mobilize energy throughout the body.
In this section, the focus is on pressing the pubis to the ground and strengthening the core area of the body as well as the abdominal area. We will also perform a series of inverted postures.
This last seated section will cover different techniques such as Uddiyana Bandha, Agnisara Dhauti, Nauli, Ashwini Mudra, Nadi Shodhana Pranayama. The essential objective of these techniques being to achieve a rebalancing of the hormonal system in a more intense way than during the various techniques and asanas proposed in the previous sections. They also help to cleanse and lighten the body of functional obstacles caused largely by stress. We end this last section of the practice with a brief contemplation (which includes your last Sankalpa), Neo-Tummo and Yoga Nidra.
The whole series uses different techniques and concepts that we be explored throughout the teaching:
- Mudras, especially kechari Mudra (used throughout the practice)
- Bandhas (very frequently used during practice)
- Chakras and Prana
- Visualization and concentration (very frequently used during practice)
As I believe nothing happens by chance, GPBALANCE was exactly what I needed. A lot of broken paradigms, a practice partly very different from the one I have been practicing for years, which is based on Iyengar Yoga, but a practice that energizes me and strengthens my body a lot, I feel really good.Mariana Akamine Bergamasco (Brazil)

Knowing GPBALANCE has given me hope for a strong and permanent health despite the hormonal changes of menopause. The body feels more supple and I feel a noticeable improvement in my mood. In short, youthfulness restored !Noemí Auad (Chile)

If I had to translate GPBALANCE into one word, it would be "health". Despite the fact that I have recently started my first 50 hours of training, I can already perceive the wealth of information it contains, I think that everything I have seen so far leads on the right path to improve our physical, mental and emotional well-being. And I must emphasize that one of the things that has attracted my attention the most and that is still present, is that I am more and more aware of the importance of the breath, its power and its important impact on our body.Caro Loberade (Chile)
