Welcome at Yogashala!
Someone once said that at Yogashala one can find ‘mature yoga classes’. We consider this a compliment because it expresses the intention with which we teach and present yoga. A great compliment, as for those who have experienced it this way, and for us.
We, Chris and Anke, have been partners for many years of our lives, whereof business partners since 2006. We cherish Yogashala as a place where authenticity rules. Therefore we are the only teachers and take full responsibility for high-quality classes. Chris accompanies his yoga teachings with working in his practice for therapeutic massage, acupuncture and yoga therapy. Anke accompanies her teaching of group classes with teaching all private yoga teachings, coachings and teacher trainings whereby she combines the disciplines of yoga with her ability to ‘read bodies’, active listening and the application of a systemic approach to clients requests and complaints.
All our classes are *taught in the studio *live streamed = you can join (via Zoom) online *replay link available. Open for everyone. Are you new to Yogashala? Register here
Moving into relaxation
Roll out your yoga mat and prepare for a flow that will guide you into a deep relaxation! The series gives you an impression of the purity and effect of Dynamic yoga.
Private yoga classes
In these troubled times, enhancing our RESILIENCE should be on the agenda of everyone. REFLECTION, CALM AND PEACEFULNESS are very much needed.
Private yoga classes can highly contribute to this. I have the ability and years of experience to choose a targeted approach based on active listening. My on-the-spot choice for the class content will be based on a short reflection of what you are in need of at that very moment and what you practiced and learned before. My intuition contributes to a great extent.
Your private yoga classes should feel as “me-time” and be labeled as “quality time”.
I regularly dedicate blog posts to my one-on-one work to inspire growth, share experiences, reduce prejudices about yoga in general and clarify its potency.
I am looking forward to meeting and teaching you!
Expertise @ Yogashala
We are specialized in an individual approach regarding physical complaints (back, neck, shoulders, hips) and Burn out.
Our expertise is based on
* Chris’ knowledge as a.o. therapeutic masseur and movement expert;
* Anke’s knowledge in the practice of yoga in the necessary variations.
The aim is to bring about relief from the complaint and to stimulate the self-healing capacity of the body. Our experience has led to the insight that exercise is very often the best option for this as the body is made to move.
Who are we?
Chris encountered yoga at the age of 13, by that time he practiced postures from a book. For Chris there is no yoga, no life, no love without passion and teaching yoga without passion wouldn’t work either. He transmits his knowledge with pure and heartfelt teachings that define what Yogashala is well-known for.
Anke’s main passion and strength in teaching yoga is intuition. Experience gathered over many years in drop-in classes and one-on-one interaction has helped crystallize her perception and approach of someone’s reality and need. She is one of the few Senior Dynamic yoga Teachers worldwide.
