Vinyasa Yoga

VINYASA YOGA

In my Vinyasa Yoga classes I aim to create a fun and playful atmosphere, preferably to some nice music. I like to build some heat through a dynamic flow where you're also free to modify into more or less advanced poses depending on your daily preference and/or individual level.

ABOUT VINYASA YOGA

Vinyasa can be translated into "breath/movement system".

It is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. The Vinyasa Yoga asanas, or poses, are derived from the Ashtanga Yoga tradition. (www.yogapedia.com)

MY ROCKET VINYASA YOGA

If you're looking for a dynamic, strengthening flow where you get to try fun transitions, inversions as well as head- and armbalances, all in good fun and for the joy of moving around, then this is deifinitely something for you!

ABOUT THE ROCKET

Larry Schultz, the founder of It’s Yoga®, created The Rocket® Routines, a series of postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga primary and intermediate series. The perfect marriage of tempo and sequence. These advanced routines are appropriate for all levels levels of students. With plenty of ways to modify the classical poses, the benefits of the poses are transmitted equally to renew vitality and energy. This vibrant routine is called the “Rocket” because, “it gets you there faster.”

Hatha Yoga

MY HATHA YOGA

In my Hatha Classes we slow down the tempo, and take some time to really get into the different asanas, or postures. We focus mainly on breathing, alignment, the connection between breath and movement and ultimately and hopefully that profound connection to self. My aim is to create a peaceful and harmonious space, often with the help of music.

ABOUT HATHA YOGA

Hatha is a Sanskrit word that can be broken down into two smaller words: ha, meaning “sun,” and tha, meaning “moon.” The word may also mean “willful” or "forceful.” Practitioners of Hatha yoga use physical alignment and breathing control to achieve an equilibrium between the active body and its universe. The resulting harmony manifests itself as physical strength, physiological health and emotional well-being. (www.yogapedia.com)

Yin Yoga

MY YIN YOGA

In my Yin Yoga classes I strive to create a space where you can be aware of and in you body as well as your mind. As in traditional yin yoga we melt and soften into positions, stay in them for a longer period of time and let gravity do its work. Letting our fascia stretch out and then slowly, carefully creep back in order to make it soft and elastic. The classes may be with or without soft music in the background.

ABOUT YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga has its roots in China, unlike the more popular and active yoga disciplines, which originated in India. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time, typically three to five minutes or longer. The yin poses, therefore, are passive and performed while seated or in a reclining position. The poses are held with the muscles fully relaxed, allowing time and gravity to deepen the stretch and target the fascia. (www.yogapedia.com)

Yoga Nidra

MY YOGA NIDRA
Through Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep, my intention is to guide you into the state between sleeping and being awake, where a deep relaxation and recovery can take place. I usually guide your focus into your own body, through a body scan, breath work and finish off with a visualization.The destination tends to be a deeply relaxed and peaceful state of mind. Yoga Nidra can be practiced as such or to finish off a more dynamic class. It tends to last for 20-30mins.

OM YOGA NIDRA

Yoga Nidra is Sanskrit for Yogic Sleep. A deep relaxation technique and a form of meditation. It is a state between being asleep and awake. The body is fully relaxed and the practitioner turns their awareness inwards through listening to a set of instructions; a bit like a guided meditation.
