Description

Kinam is an ancestral technology from ancient Mexico, its defined as “an art to harmonize body and spirit”. Kinam consists of power postures, conscious breathing, hand gestures and techniques to expand perception. It’s origin traces back to the birth of civilization in Mesoamerica thousands of years ago, its intent is to connect, balance and strengthen mind, body and spirit. The term Kinam is an abbreviation of the Nahuatl verb Kinitia that refers to an applied force to find balance. In the Mayan language Kin is the name of the Sun. Kinam has a meditative and introspective essence that allows us to connect with our internal self while supporting us to open a perception channel that stimulates dream states of consciousness. “Neither above, nor below, neither to the left, nor the right, only in your center you exist ” -Se Akatl Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl Practitioner Bio: Adrian Flores Barajas Born in California and raised in Mexico, Adrian has spent his life bridging two worlds together. He discovered Yoga on a backpacking trip through Europe and immediately felt a strong connection. He completed a Yoga teacher training in 2019 and has been intermittently teaching Vinyasa Yoga since then. More recently he came across Kinam, known by some as Toltec Yoga, and felt an even more profound connection with the practice and cosmovision. With Kinam, he knew he was going to immerse himself in the practice for life. After a short time, Adrian travelled to Mexico to train as part of the second generation of certified Kinam instructors of our time. He feels a strong calling to share the wisdom of his ancestors to serve our collective and holistic evolution journey. Adrian spends his time moving his body with dance, slacklining, highlining, Yoga and Kinam. He is most interested in applying tools from Yoga, Kinam, and a blend of other schools of thought to deepen his experience and understanding of the complex biosphere we live in.
