About me

I am Hadar Hod Ratner, a partner of Itai, a mother of Lior and Zohar, a teacher since 2003. 

Certified teacher of Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa (Dynamic Yoga), focuses on and investigates the poses and movement they combine with ocean breathing = Ojai and body holding that allows proper posture, flow and strengthening = bandages.

I used to teach at Moshav Bnei Atarot in the center of the country and since 2010 I have been teaching at Paran in the Middle Arava.

I see yoga as a way of life and teaching yoga based on experience, exploration and learning acquired over the years as a way to pass on the ancient tradition that began in India more than 2500 years ago.

Persistence in practicing yoga is a key to beneficial change during the lesson and in life itself.

The lessons are delivered from the guiding principles: devotion, honesty, modesty, invulnerability, listening and love.


How did I meet yoga?


When I was 25, a geography student at Tel Aviv University, a serious car accident distracted me, but then I met what I was looking for. I was looking to recover physically and mentally. I found in yoga practice the combination of physical, emotional and spiritual work. Thanks to perseverance in practice and willpower, I got my life back on track and practice became a daily and a way of life.

Yoga practice includes meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and asanas (posture practice).

Yoga for me is a gift that brings me closer to the essence and essence of my being. It allows for moments of presence and honest and powerful coping with the challenges of life. Yoga practice  Flexes and strengthens all the systems in the body and gives tools to bring us back to ourselves, to the potential inherent in us. Practicing is like a compass, reminding me to connect to the center, to the base, to the house. During a dilemma through meditation, the answers are given as to what to choose, in which direction to flow correctly. It is an amazing tool for strengthening in every way and it not only stays on the mat but it allows a meeting between people based on good intentions, since the practice opens the heart and expands it, so that we can  To give and love more, and to realize the potential that lies within us. Thanks to the yoga way, I experience more of my moments  Peace, presence, listening and connection, an energetic, healthy and more balanced life.

On the method

Vaniasa is a yoga style belonging to the Hatha Yoga family characterized by connecting poses through a posture synchronized posture and assembling the 3 main bands: Mulbanda Udiana Benda and Jalandra Banda.

Vinyasa classes offer a variety of poses and sequences so the classes are very varied  Both in the subject of the lesson and in the sequence of the poses, but the framework of the lesson is similar: a short meditation session,  Gentle heating of the joints and spine, holding the bandages, starting to breathe Ojai  Ocean breathing is also called after the sound created as sea waves, as the air passes through the inside of the throat breathing through the nose only and trying to create a constant rhythm and equality in the length of the inhalations and exhalations. Breathing  High to the chest so that the lungs realize their potential. The constant rhythm and synchronization between movement and breathing connects the two outer and inner worlds and causes a feeling of meditation in movement. Drishti - a focused look at one point that helps with inner concentration. "The two actions unite to create a symphony of unity and each action encourages the other. Then we feel unity, the mind is free and the practice becomes a dance that is an expression of the inner energy ... so the physical practice is a corridor for a deep self-exploration of our identity" / David Swanson 2003

So as our external movements that are an expression of our internal movements - the way we think and feel refined.

Blessings to serve his role among other things to awaken the centers of pran energy = life energy, along the spine. Equilibrium postures' Twists and bends forward and backward, standing, sitting on hands, inverted postures and finally resting. There will always be at least one challenging pose. As in life that sometimes challenges us, otherwise if we always stay in the comfort zone we will degenerate.

The changing nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a balanced body and engine injuries. 

As a philosophy, Vinyasa recognizes the temporary and changing nature of things. We get into a pose, stay there for a while, settle in, start to 'feel at home' and then leave and continue to 'wander'.

In the words of the Indian poet  My favorite: Rabindranath Tagore who wrote in the introduction to his book: Ali Guest: "She has two faces to India - her face sits in a tent on one side and the face of a wandering monk on the other.

In the same way, in practice, there is both a longing for home and the familiar, as opposed to a longing for wandering and change. The desire to rest, to establish, to explore  And deepen in one place and the animals in motion.

Sharon Ganun and David Life, the founders of Jumokati Yoga, wrote in their book Giomokati Practice for the Liberation of Body and Mind: "The combination of Vinyasa and the poses reveals the incredible potential of the poses and their effect as a mantra."

Vinyasa's movement practice began with its founding -SRI T  Krishnamacharya (1888–1989)

Which has the greatest impact  In the last 100 years on the way yoga, is now practiced in the West. Many of today's most famous yoga teachers - including his brother - in - law. K.S. Iyengar, son of T. line. Desikshar and Fatabhi Joyce, founder of Ashtanga Yoga, Srivasta Rama Swami Krishnamacharya's oldest student outside his own family - Indira Devi the first Western teacher and more,  Learn with him and shape their yoga styles after practicing and teaching it. 

Vinyasa Karama is an expression of Krishna Macharia that describes the new meaning given to things when they connect  You join together and create a process in stages, step by step and change and then free from the vibrations of consciousness. And create a benevolent conscious intention that runs like a second thread in all our day-to-day activities and relationships.

Practice affects every action in our lives with the intention of moving towards what is sacred, what is important to us in life. 

"The word in Sanskrit Vinyasa comes from the prefix V, which means to walk, to move, to begin  , And an suffix, nyasa, which means to place, to sow 'within the prescribed parameters.' "Srivatsa Ramaswami, a student of Krishnamacharya for more than thirty years.

He goes on to refer to classical yoga, from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, to the specific parameters:

Stability (slap)

Comfort (Souka)

Smooth and long breathing (Prayatna Sithila)

The term vinyasa is derived from nyasa, which means "to the place", and vi, which means "in a special way". It indicates that we are not "throwing our body" but laying it down, bringing awareness to every movement at every moment.

Vinyasa Yoga connects one stable pose to another through the soul. 

The transitions are no less important than the poses themselves. That's why we're getting stronger and more flexible and so is the movement in the aisles of everyday life in Pan  The physical,  The emotional and the mental. When we are sick or injured the ability to move is first impaired. Long-term practice puts us on our feet and gets us back to routine faster and also keeps us from injuring ourselves and then less material damage if we had not practiced at all.

Vinyasa is actually a synonym for traffic. Movement in and out  But is also represented by heartbeat and respiration. Breathing initiates the movement of Vinyasa and therefore the practice is also called "synchronized breathing" practice.

Vinyasa practice produces heat and can add to cardio-pulmonary endurance activity  Which does not always exist  In other forms of practice where only relaxation.  

"It is not enough to climb a tree, you also need to know how to get off it"

Desikshar 1998
