Yoga group classes

ARE CANCELLED IN RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ANNOUNCED BY THE DUTCH GOVERNMENT.

We are working on taking some of our weekly classes online. Besides that, we’re working on videos for self-practice support and addressing specific physical complaints. You can subscribe for our newsletter to receive updates from us. Here’s our latest edition.

Sending warm regards to all of you – stay safe & healthy!

Private yoga classes online

In response to the Covid-19 situation, enhancing our RESILIENCE should be on the agenda of every human being. As we are all in LOCKDOWN and SOCIAL DISTANCING is required, REFLECTION, CALM AND PEACEFULNESS are very much needed.

PRIVATE YOGA CLASSES can highly contribute to this. I currently offer all private teachings VIA SKYPE / FACETIME. It is SAFE and yet, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE because of my approach. FLEXIBILITY with regards to time slots is guaranteed. You can CONTACT me via the Contact form, or call / WhatsApp to 06 237 387 51.

I have the ability and years of experience to choose a TARGETED APPROACH based on ACTIVE LISTENING. As a result, each lesson meets your needs and is a “stepping stone” that, most of all, will MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER. I will transform your decision for private yoga classes into “ME-TIME” and even “QUALITY TIME”. My on-the-spot choice for the class content will be based on a short reflection of how you are doing and what you are in need of. You can think of, for example:

  • a guided journey into RELAXATION
  • gain CLARITY about your state of being, thinking and feeling
  • build RESILIENCE for the challenges ahead of us
  • shift your MINDSET when feeling overwhelmed by feelings like uncertainty, chaos, confusion and anxiety
  • simply move, stretch, feel and enjoy your BODY
  • ventilate what’s on your HEART and mind to recognize what FREEDOM feels like.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING AND TEACHING YOU!
Best regards,
Anke

Welcome at Yogashala!

Yogashala breathes purity – no mirrors or frills. The class content rests on stillness in the room. Our group classes are open to 10 – 15 students per class. We know all students in person and by name. If appropriate, verbal guidance can be accompanied with hands-on support. All students are equal and competition is ruled out. We love for our students to really feel noticed.

Yogashala has been a place to explore and deepen your personal yoga journey since 2006. You will meet us, Chris and Anke, owners and permanent teachers who personally take care of all classes. We can look back at a total of 50 years of teaching experiences.

Integrity in combination with motivation for self-exploration is a common thread through all our classes. Everybody aiming for a sustainable result can count on our unconditional support. Our core focus is based on our specific knowledge of yoga, correct and appropriate teachings, the variety of people and their learning abilities. We are aware and take into account the individuality of every body with its possibilities and limitations.

Our classes

Dynamic yoga

Dynamic yoga is based on physical effort and free flow of breath. Posture in flow and stillness require coordination and alertness. Applying sensitivity throughout the practice, you’ll experience joy with and from your body as a result!

Yin yoga

You can expect a quietening posture practice that addresses flexibility, range of movement and resilience. We’ll encourage you to explore the impact of postures: get the most out of it, honoring integrity and your physical abilities!

Kundalini yoga

Do you love to work-out? Then you definitely should give Kundalini yoga a try! Movement and postures in stillness are a synthesis of dynamic, powerful movements and breathing. They immensely impact body, mind and your state of awareness.

Private classes

Yoga taught privately is for anyone interested in a personal approach towards an effective and beneficial yoga practice. Each private class is unique and tailored to your individual needs, goals and abilities. We can offer support regarding a broad variety of requests, e.g. physical complaints, burn out, improving coordination, movement and balance or physical and mental relaxation. Upon request we can design an individual program for your self practice.

Trial class

Would you like to encounter yoga in a comfortable and safe environment? You can attend a class of your choice for trial.

Sunday Morning Specials & Classes – March

Neck-Back-Shoulders
08 March
09:30-11:00

Read this review about an earlier Special: “Today’s Shoulder, Neck and Back Special did the magic for me! I again walked in with irritating tightness in my neck and shoulders and walked out with my neck straight, shoulders down (I tend to  pull them up) and lightness all over. Anke guides us through series of easy moves that result (for me) in pain relief and a great feeling. It is comparable to a good massage, except the result is more sustainable – we learn how to prevent issues in the area and to do help yourself if needed. I appreciate this class so much!”

Waking up with Kundalini yoga
15 March
09:30-11:00

This is a great class if you want to substitute your drag-me-out-of-bed-coffee for an energizing yoga practice! The Kriyas that are the main part of Kundalini yoga practice, will challenge your physical and mental strength just as much as your resilience.

YinYang in Synergy
22 March
09:30-11:00

YinYang in Synergy classes are for everyone who likes the calmness that Yin yoga can bring about, in combination with a flow that will balance stillness and movement. The flow will be based on movement to the rhythm of the breath and vary between standing, sitting and supine postures.

Fun with the Yang Series
29 March
09:30-11:00

We’re talking Dragons, Dogs and Warriors here. A short series of Yin yoga postures is where we’ll take off and eventually complement it with an in-detail practice of one or more of the so called ‘Yang-series’. Click this link to get an impression of this practice, induced by a lot of FUN!

All Specials en Sunday morning classes are open to everybody. Would  you like to join in

Who are we?

Chris Ramkema

Chris

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.
