Ashtanga is the original power yoga. A systematic sequence of predetermined flowing postures linked together with the breath.
Stretch like you never stretched before. Using Yoga asanas, focusing on strengthening and stretching the myofascial connections in your body, creating a more holistic approach to movement. We will use props to release trigger points in our Myofascial Meridians.
A yoga class described as ‘Hatha’ will typically involve a set of physical postures and breathing techniques, practised more slowly and with more static posture holds than perhaps a Vinyasa flow or Ashtanga class.
In this class we will use the asanas to create a strong practice to build stamina and strength.
An uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices, Kundalini Yoga incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, meaning “truth is my identity.” The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.
Medicinsk Yin Yoga
During this class, Medical Yoga and Yin Yoga are united. We will move calmly and consciously to awaken our bodies. Soft physical exercises are combined with breathing, concentration techniques and meditation. We become silent with the help of Yin Yoga; stretching the connective tissue, joints and ligaments. The body slowly softens into the stretch as we stay in each position for a few minutes. Each position becomes like a long wonderful meditation, while being fully present with yourself.
Vinyasa Flow 1
A gentle flow to encourage both strength and flexibility as we move through different asanas and connect it with our breath.
Vinyasa Flow 2
An intense flow, using dynamic movements to transition from one asana to the other. Be prepared to feel a nice sweat as we find balance, strength and flexibility.
Intermediate and up.
Yin/Restorative Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative version of the popular physical and spiritual discipline of yoga. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement.
The yoga shala will be heated to about 28-30 degrees, to create warmth and heat in your flow. Prepare to build up a sweat, open up your pores, increase blood circulation, and help loosen the muscles to create flexibility.
Bring a yoga towel or towel for your mat and a water bottle.
