Yoga traditions

In the course of the history of yoga, various yoga traditions have emerged, which accordingly have their focus more on the physical or on the spiritual-philosophical level.

 

I offer mainly classic Hatha Yoga with flow elements, Yin yoga and Yoga as therapy.

They are a fusion of what I have extracted as the essence from the different traditions I have studied. 

 

My approach is very alignment-oriented. My yoga classes are characterized by the attention to good physical alignment.

Breathing practice and meditation are included in my classes.

As a foundation, I lean on the precious philosophical foundations of yoga.

 

Each lesson is individual and depends on what the group dynamics require.

A lesson can be static or more fluid.

For my classes it is important that there is no must and no hardship, but that yoga is used as a mindful practice in such a way that it is based on what the individual needs.

It is not the practitioner who adapts to the practice, but the practice adapts to the practitioner.

Hatha Yoga

is the play with the forms: the classic yoga positions (asanas), which give the body strength and flexibility. By focusing on healthy movement and breathing and present mindful practice, the tangle of thoughts finds a new order and the mind experiences more and more stillness. A state of meditation arises naturally.

Everyone is supported in their body structures in such a way that healthy external and internal postures can be experienced.

Body and mind find a harmonious balance, which causes deep relaxation.

Flow elements bring a soft component to my way of teaching Hatha Yoga.

Yin Yoga

caresses your nervous system.

It is a calm, passive and meditative style of yoga that is a counterpoint to the everyday often rushed movements and activities (the yang).

The positions are mainly lying and sitting and are accompanied by breathing instructions. 

Unlike in classic yoga, the postures are not performed with muscle power, but supported by props, so that the positions can be held for a long time without any effort. This can be 3-5 minutes and sometimes even longer.

Body and mind experience soothing silence that has a regenerative effect and builds up inner resources.

Patterns of tension are transformed into softer and more open structures that create space and leave a feeling of freshness and relaxation.

takes up the  very personal topics and needs of the client through a targeted yoga practice and creates an individual exercise program with asanas, breathing practice and meditation.

Yoga looks at the human being as a whole and incorporates ailments into a larger system of our original health, so that inner potentials can be explored and limitations can be changed.

Not only the development of a healthier posture is the goal of the yoga therapy approach, but also the finding of a meaningful and affirmative attitude towards life.

It's very much about alignment with resources and opportunities.

Dealing with chronic pain also finds its place in yoga therapy.
