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

   

Yoga Intensive: 
asana - pranayama - meditation

 
 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  04/09 + session 2  11/09 + session 3  18/09; Time: 20:30 - 22:00
   Yoga posture practice based on movement and stillness can be a time of exploring the depth of yoga. We hereby apply repetitive movements to prepare the body for stillness. You will be guided with clear instructions and hands-on adjustments.

 You then can refine accessible movements and postures in order to practice with the least effort possible, protecting the joints and vulnerable parts of your body. We will enter a variety of poses with patience - slowly and step-by-step. Later on we will address more physically challenging poses. 

 There will be sufficient time to explore stability and comfort in postures so that you can relax into them. In so doing you will experience yoga practice as an organic and nourishing event. 
Are you familiar with yoga posture practice? Please feel welcome to join in! 

* Sunday 27 July; 09:30 - 12:30
 
 

             

 

Yin yoga Intensive with Live Harp music

 
 

Partner yoga & massage workshop

 
 Join us in this very special Intensive wherein Yin yoga practice will be accompanied by enchanting live Harp music (musician: Marjatta Fehres). The sound of the music will add to the positive impact of our practice as it helps us to increase focus and relaxation in the postures.

The Yin yoga postures will be sequenced to mainly focus on 'opening' and strengthening the back, in particular the lower back. You'll be invited to explore your body's abilities and limitations in each posture while a soft breath and sensitivity should be your guides.
Prepare for an intense but quiet practice! 

* Sunday 21 September; 11:15 - 14:15
   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 04 October; 11:15 - 15:00
 

 

Yoga encounter

 

Classes


 

 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.
