OUR CLASSES / JAN-MAY 2019
- FLEXIBILITY AND BREATH
This class is for those who have practiced some yoga before, know some of the basic principles of yoga or want to try out a yoga form that is somewhat physically engaging. There is often a lot of load on arms and shoulders in most dynamic yoga methods and we therefore focus a lot on good technique. If you have injuries or problems with your shoulders, arms, hands and wrists, please mention it to the teacher or you can choose a more gentle yoga form.
Duration: 60 - 90 MIN
- PRESENCE IN MOTION
This is a softer form of yoga where one does not need previous experience with yoga. The class is adapted for all body shapes and health. Mindful yoga is an approach where "mindful" is understood as an attitude and “yoga” as a process. Here, Buddhist mindfulness practices bind yoga asanas (physical positions) and pranayama (breathing exercises). We explore attentively the presence in the body, mind and feelings of the moment. Mindful yoga is a tool that gives us access to our inner lives and increased body awareness and understanding.
Mindful yoga is not about performing but getting to know the body, own boundaries and observing patterns that you add during a lifetime. Yoga gladly mirrors life and can be a tool for changing inappropriate patterns.
Duration: 60-75 MIN
- STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY
This class is for those who have practiced some yoga before, know some of the principles of yoga or want to try out a yoga method that is physically engaging. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is one of the oldest traditions and has inspired a vast majority of other modern yoga today. We follow a certain sequence of different asanas of the Primary Series that will contribute to increase vitality, strength and flexibility of both body and mind.
Duration: 90 MIN
- the power of rest
This is a very quiet and soft yoga method that can be effective against stress and deeper tensions. Yin yoga is a soft therapeutic yoga where most positions are made lying or sitting on the yoga mat while working with deep muscles, connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments. This is an passive way of working. It means that you do not use muscle power, but it's breath that helps the body to release tension and activate the parasympathetic nervous system. We stay a little longer in each postures than in other yoga methods, about three to five minutes. In yin yoga, we are happy to use pillows and other props to support the body and ease into a deep relaxation.
Duration: 75-90 MIN
- care in motion
Deva Yoga is a gentle, simple, profound and therapeutic yoga form. Deva yoga is designed specifically for using yoga and meditation as a therapeutic tool for improving and relieving muscle / skeletal disorders and chronic pain in the muscles and skeletal system, including tension and stiffness in muscles and joints.
We work with the nervous system, to get in touch with the parasympathetic part of our nervous system, the part that helps us to rest and that contributes to the body's own ability to recover. If you experience a lot of stress in your life, Deva Yoga can help you achieve better balance. Deva yoga uses simple exercises with motion, breath, attention and deep relaxation to support the body's physiological systems for recovery and reconstruction.
In Deva yoga we work to free up tensions, change thought and movement patterns, establish functional neurological patterns, strengthen weak muscles and establish functional interaction in muscle groups.
