Yoga is both a physical and a mental practice. On the physical level, yoga is a challenging form of training, where all the muscles of the body work to create strength, agility and balance, and the body is thus harmoniously trained. At the mental level, yoga is a great tool for creating inner peace and balance by emphasizing mindfulness and meditation.
The class will start with breathing exercises (pranayama), where we turn our attention inward. By turning your attention inward, focusing on yourself and what moves within you, it absorbs the concentration and helps you get a relaxed relationship with the surroundings.
The breathing exercises will simultaneously initiate the actual physical yoga exercises (asanas).
Each class will have a theme and an overall focus area in the body and we aim at building a strong and flexible body.
In this basic yoga class we on both strength, stretch and breathing. We build stability, flexibility and freedom in the body through standing and seated positions, sun greetings, breathing techniques, balance, backwards and relaxation exercises.
This class offers the absolute best way to give your mind a little break. Hopefully you will go from the class a little bit happier, lighter and more body-minded from the class every time.
Hatha Yoga is a gentle form of yoga, where we strengthen our body awareness through stretch and classical positions. By using consciousness at the same time, your whole body is physically affected and makes your body relax. Concentration increases and you get a sense of ease in your body and mind. Through calm exercises, yoga focuses on optimizing the muscles around the spine and you learn to use your body more appropriately.
Occasionally, we set the pace a little higher and do some Flow Yoga, where the positions are chained together as pearls on a string and the breaks are shorter. When we make Flow, the breath is synchronized with the movements of what we call Vinyasa, which increases stamina and creates calm in the mind. Hatha and Flow Yoga complement each other. Each yoga time ends with relaxation.
