Our journey into making our passion a profession started with a Yoga Teacher Training on the island of Nusa Lembongan, Bali. This gave us the chance to greatly deepen our existing practices and to become teachers with a Yoga Alliance Certification. Afterwards we dove even deeper with a 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Dharamsala, India (read about the trainings here). This mixture gives us the chance to find our own path in between modern and traditional, western and eastern, to really dive into what Yoga has to offer.
Yoga promotes not only physical health, it also works on your energy and mind to create an all around positive life. That's why our Yoga goes hand in hand with our sustainability, spirituality and social events. Either join our yoga retreat in Italy or contact us to find out if we come to your region! And if you've never participated in a Yoga class before, here is some useful information for you.
Read on below for a description of the different lessons and workshops we offer!
Yoga lessons should be available to everyone! That's what we believe - at the same time, unfortunately, we also have bills to pay. That's why we offer the following:
Contact us if you want to sponsor a person who cannot afford the money to go to one of our yoga lessons by paying the lesson for them - and because we encourage this wonderful gift, you get a percentage off of the price:
Please, be aware: There has to be some sort of prove of the neediness of that person, e.g. a registration of being unemployed or something similar.
If you are interested in sponsoring somebody, but you don't know anyone who could come into consideration, feel free to contact us nonetheless! You can then choose out of two options: We either publish your offer for someone in need to approach us, or we will inform you as soon as we run into such a person for you to get in contact with her or him.
We're all about spreading the love for yoga and bringing people together! We also believe that it is impossible for all people on earth to be as rich in resources as the people in industrialised countries are at the moment. The wealthy need to give for everyone to arrive on one level. Only then can we all feel as united as we truly are.
When thinking of Yoga how it is practiced in western countries, we mostly mean Hatha Yoga: A physical practice consisting of Asanas (poses), focus and control of the breath. Traditionally though Hatha Yoga was a practice to prepare the body for meditation. In our Hatha Yoga classes we put an emphasis on regaining that spiritual aspect. This way you can not only bring your physical practice to the next level, but also your non-physical.
Vinyasa Yoga is characteristically a faster paced practice of Asanas (poses) that are woven together to a flow of movement with coherent breathing (typically one breath - one movement). We encourage our students to experience Vinyasa Yoga out of a dancer's perspective, making the practice graceful and fluent. Our Vinyasa flows often come with workout elements to strengthen your balance and stamina, the perfect compensation for our modern lives that are far too often seated and inactive.
All our classes are suited for all levels, a Vinyasa class might not be your first choice though if you are completely new to yoga, as the pace gives less chance for assists.
With its longer held and grounding shapes Yin Yoga is the perfect way to unwind. Yin Yoga targets fascia, ligaments and meridians and imposes healthy stress on joints and connective tissue. Hereby it supports the release of physical and non-physical blockades, leading to more flexibility and relaxation. Yin Yoga requires hardly any physical strength and is especially well suited for people recovering from injuries or as a practice shortly before bedtime.
As the name says the purpose of Restorative Yoga lies in the restoration of a healthy and stress-free body and mind. Shapes are held between 5 and 30 min long, giving the body the opportunity to completely relax and calm down. Our days are often filled with activities that stimulate the sympathetic nervous system ("fight and flight"). Restorative Yoga gives you the chance to let the parasympathetic nervous system ("rest and digest") take over and renew your energy. Just like Yin Yoga a Restorative Yoga class is therefore also especially well suited for people recovering from injuries and to guide you into deep sleep.
A Yin Yan Yoga class, also called "Vin Yin Yoga" (from Vinyasa and Yin), combines the powerful flow of a Vinyasa Yoga class with the relaxing recovery phase of a Yin Yoga or Restorative Yoga class. It is the perfect composition for anyone who strives for the balance of strength and flexibility, of challenge and surrender.
We also offer classes that are aimed at gaining strength and balance in a certain way to achieve a certain advanced Asana (pose), a so-called peak pose. The practice strengthens specific muscle groups while lengthening others in preparation of a certain goal. If you have a pose in mind that you always wanted to master, this might be the class for you.
We offer workshops to many different topics and in different time frames. Here are examples of popular workshop topics:
Learn everything you need to know about arm balances in Yoga, among other things history, precautions, bandhas (locks), and shoulder integration. Gain insight into different popular arm balance postures and variations to master them step by step.
The workshop includes a warm-up flow, lots of practice and relaxation at the end.
In our Ashtanga Workshop we discuss the Ashtanga Primary Series with explanations about Ashtanga in general, its history, origin and characteristics. Experience Ashtanga practice, learn about common dangers and how you can modify your personal Ashtanga practice to keep it as safe as possible.
The workshop is two and a half hours long and includes practicing flows, discussions and optional Asanas to balance the body afterwards.
