Yogashala philosophy

Yogashala yogi's testimonials

 Yogashala is a studio where all kinds of people meet and share their interest in yoga with passion. All classes are based on a down-to-earth approach with clear instruction, clarifying yoga as awareness training.

Postures, in stillness or flow, are based on inquiry with an open mind. Within this process we pay attention  to the breath, natural alignment in postures and movement, softness combined with strength and flexibility and the exploration of each person's individual capacity and limitations.

Yoga Introduction course


Partner yoga & massage workshop

 This course is open to everybody who's new to yoga (or Yogashala). We'll introduce you to the basics of dynamic yoga styles and the quietening postures of Yin yoga. We hereby apply an accessible and comprehensive learning method which provides the keys to yoga posture, pranayama and meditation practice.

You'll be guided to learn about the basic principles and techniques in postures and movements to practice yoga safely, effectively and progressively.
Through practical, clear instruction you can discover and learn about the body’s  intelligence, capacities and limitations. The course is a great stepping stone to join our ongoing classes.
* next course, taking place on 3 consecutive Thursday nights:
session 1  09/10 + session 2  16/10 + session 3  23/10; Time: 20:30 - 22:00
   Yoga practiced with a partner cultivates a reciprocal connection through touch, support, playfulness, trust and rhythm. It is FUN to explore poses together that only make sense when you feel each others physical support and trust each other!
You can of course bring your partner in life or a person with whom you want to mutually share this great experience.

Besides the physical practice there will be time for meditation and mutual massage  to spoil each other but also invite tension in the body to be released. Yogashala teacher Chris can look back at 30 years of professional massage experience and will guide you through a yogic full body massage.

* Sunday 05 October; 11:15 - 15:00

Kundalini yoga Intensive

 "I have been devoted to yoga for most of the last twenty years and teaching for the last ten. My principal influence has been Godfri Devereux.

 Over the years I find the practice has simplified. While yoga is plainly rooted in direct, physical experience I have little interest in ability or, so-called ‘advanced’ postures. Of course it can be fun to let the body do all it can but for me each practice is a meditation, a letting go into sensation. It is about spaciousness and feeling connected, not separate. It is an invitation to let the heart open into wild vulnerability and freedom..."

* Sat 01 & Sun 02 November (1 day attendance is optional)
   Kundalini yoga is an ultimate physical and mental challenge and for that a fantastic tool to bring about overall wellbeing. Practicing this style of yoga with its synthesis of strong, dynamic movements and powerful breathing can initiate an immediate change of consciousness. 

 The Intensive will cover a variation of Kriyas (series of exercises), linked with proportional periods of relaxation in silence and meditation. Everybody can of course determine the intensity with which he / she will practice without missing the opportunity to face the challenge!
Prepare to break a sweat and gasp for breath, but also be guided into deep stillness...

Yoga encounter




 All classes on offer at Yogashala are an invitation to investigate your very own being through yoga postures, breathing and meditation.

Yoga practice clears energy blockages in the body by increasing the flow of prana (energy), this improves the health of our organs as well as increasing our energy and promoting a general sense of wellbeing. The goal is to reach a state of relaxation of the breath and the body, which in turn invites the mind to quieten. The resulting effect is reduced physical and emotional stress through the release of tension from the body.
