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.

Since 2006 our Highlight of the Year:
Workshop with Godfrey Devereux; Dynamic & Tantra yoga
Godfrey is a renowned yoga teacher. His work has evolved over a period of more than 40 years. A lot of what he presents in his teachings is based on consistent self-exploration, uncountable hours of teaching yoga to thousands of people and his ever-present curiosity in life. Therefore his teachings are pure and authentic, refreshing and inspiring for people interested in the depth of yoga, existence and even the universe.
17 & 18 May: Dynamic yoga practice; day 1 will prepare you for a complete practice of integration that Godfrey will present on Sunday.
19 & 20 May: Tantra yoga; learn about intimacy and how it is possible not only with others, but also with your self, the world and life.
Both parts of the workshop are open to everyone. Tantra yoga workshops at Yogashala do not involve sex or nudity.
Sunday Morning Specials
Are you tired of neck, back and shoulder pain? You then surely should give this special yoga class a try! We will practice accessible and gentle postures and movements in supine and vertical positions. So that you become aware of the functionality of the targeted areas of the body when exercising and how to relax them.
This is the 1st day of a two-day workshop and open to everyone. Yoga master Godfrey Devereux will teach an exploration of the somatic basis of intimacy. Intimacy is possible not only with others, but also with your self, the world and life. The overt expression of intimacy is being present to what is actually happening. The deep fruit of intimacy is erosion of boundaries that uphold the experience of separation. Visit the workshop announcement webpage for detailed information.
Meditation in variation
This class offers the opportunity to meditate in action & stillness. It consists of 2 parts. Part 1 covers a yoga posture practice in flow whereby Chandra Namaskar is the red thread through. Ullolas (see article) in variation will invite the meditative mind in action. The posture practice prepares your body & mind for part 2, a longer sitting meditation in stillness (min. 30 min).
All Specials en Sunday morning classes are open to everybody.
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.
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.
