Gustavo Ponce will give 3 masterclasses at YogaOne Auditorium to present the GPBALANCE method. We recommend attending all three workshops for making the most of Gustavo's visit to Madrid.
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)
Participating in your workshop was a unique, complete and enriching experience. I definitely plan to take your training course next year, if you come to Brazil. In addition to the experience of your method, you are, as a teacher, friendly, calm, super didactic, generous, studious and so on... Congratulations ! Gratitude to the Universe for knowing you personally, and for having experienced this wonderful method, GPBALANCE.Suzy Arregue (Brazil)

Presence and calmness, that's how I could describe in a nutshell what I managed to feel after 1 year of GPBALANCE practice. The tools I assimilated from GPBALANCE helped me to better understand my mind and my body and, in moments of "crisis", thanks to this presence and calmness, I manage to apply them to balance myself.Tania Matamala (Chile)
