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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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
YinYang in Synergy
The dynamic ‘Yang’ part of the class offers physically more or less challenging yoga postures in flow, or stillness. Yin – by nature static and meditative – is based on quietening, though intense Yin yoga postures. The mobilization and strengthening of the joints, most of all the connective tissues that holds our joints together, plays a main role in this practice.
Anke teaches this class and developed the content mainly in her private yoga classes. She responded to the request of releasing the neck, back and shoulders adequately as she found the classical yoga postures often not being the most suitable answer to bring about relief. Anke then perfected a variation of subtle and often very detailed movements and postures to meet the expectations of the students. The main focus is relaxation in combination with effort.
All Specials en Sunday morning classes are open to everybody. Would you like to join in?
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.
