Yoga

Originating in India, yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that creates a union of the body, mind and spirit. Yoga helps you to relax, relieve stress, and build strength and flexibility through physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques, and meditation. All classes are well suited for beginners. If you are not familiar with yoga, you will be able to participate in the exercises. Mats, straps and blocks are provided.

Hourly description: Hatha Yoga (Gentle & Relaxing)

Together we do gentle, stretching and relaxing yoga exercises. The therapeutic effect of yoga will treat you holistically. Each hour is a slightly different whole and breathing exercises are also included. The asanas vary according to the theme, i.e. they are done while standing, sitting and lying down, with back and forth bends, rotations and pelvic openings. The lessons begin with silence and final relaxation.

Hourly description: Yin Yoga (calm & restorative)

Feel the vitality in your body and enjoy restorative yin yoga. In this exercise, you get rid of all the exercise and move on to a more passive yoga exercise. In this exercise, you consciously slow down and yin yoga is especially good when you want to recover from stressful things in your body and mind. The positions are for several minutes (3-5 minutes), during which the body stops and calms down properly. Physically, the exercise goes deeper into the body (connective tissues, ligaments, joints, bones, fascia), at the mental level it allows you to stop and at the energy level it stimulates the circulation of Qin / prana in the body, removing any blockages.

Yoga practitioners of all levels, including beginners, are welcome. According to your own yoga mat or other platform and for relaxation you can book a blanket etc. If you have yoga aids like bolster, blocks, belt etc. then you can bring your own equipment.
