Welcome to hañsa.yoga
A therapeutic movement practice designed to support optimal movement performance and postural function with greater ease. Through Hañsa Flow we will further develop an understanding of human movement and natural biomechanical rhythms.
A methodology and a guided approach that leads us to inquire further in the challenges of maintaining normal functional and dealing with the many aspects of the human condition. Hañsa Therapy combines both Western and Eastern principles and methodologies from developmental movement principles to applied biomechanics and specific protocols of postural assessment.
Vincent Bolletta has spent his yoga journey exploring the many styles of yoga, searching for the essence of the yoga practice and how it applies to the functional lives of everyday practitioners.
Vincent is one of New Zealand’s foremost yoga instructors and teacher trainer with a wealth of knowledge in biomechanics, yoga therapy and much more.

From our Participants
Learning about Hañsa had entirely changed the way I think about yoga asana practice and also inspired some beautiful understandings of life, as well as depended and consolidated some on the world views I have already fostered through other resonant modalities.
Excellent. So good to hear Vincent using words to help us make everyday sense of our yoga connection with our geometrical shapes and physical space, our breathing and finally visualisation to seal the deal.
It was amazing. I knew my T12-L1 connection wasn’t good. But when the class almost finish, I can feel something different in my body. Especially in T12-L1 area. Nice sequence. Love it

The meaning of hañsa yoga
hañsa（हंस）means the swan in sanskrit. The swan represents the liberated ātman (soul).
hañsa yoga is a healing process of self awakening through the practice and observation of human behavioural patterns. Using this as the basis of gaining greater insight to individual function as well as understanding ones physical, mental and energetic needs.
Exploring the subtle aspects of our breath and the hidden language that resides within it we will discover the artistry of internal flow and form. Through the integration of both eastern and western philosophy and methodologies we will unravel and engage our unique stories in a way that will evoke a postural evolution that will only enhance skill, grace and poise on all levels.
The swan symbolizes grace and beauty on many levels. It is associated with love, music, and poetry. In Roman mythology Swan was sacred to Venus, the goddess of love. In Greek tradition, this bird was often pictured singing to a lyre.
