Description of my classes
The group classes are suited to all levels. The hatha yoga class combines meditation, breathing exercises (pranayama), yoga postures (asanas) and final relaxation. Regular practice of yoga asanas in conjunction with pranayama reduces fatigue, releases toxins, soothes the nervous system and helps to keep the body free from disease. You learn how to cope with thoughts and emotions, and it’s not about perfection. It’s about steadiness in the practice, awareness, improvement, presence, and an open, curious heart towards oneself and others.
Yoga kriyas, pranayama, and meditation
This class mainly focuses on kriyas, pranayama, and meditation. Kriya is Sanskrit, and means action, deed. It is the conscious effort of a practitioner to clean his energy field with simple techniques best done early in the morning. Pranayama are breathing exercises which guide and direct the flow of prana, the life force energy, in your body. Both kind of practices prepare you well to go deep into meditation.
Yoga & dance
Sometimes I also teach yoga & dance, which is guided and aligned with the principles of yoga.
