Restorative Yin

It is a slow-paced practice that brings together principles of traditional Chinese medicine and yoga asanas. Unlike other yoga styles Yin yoga is entirely passive. The aim of such practice is muscle disengagement, which allows asana to directly reach the facia improving mobility at a deeper tissue level.

Yin is a great choice for beginners and those who prefer a slow meditative practice. Asanas are held longer and the transitions between postures are gentle. In our classes we use organic spelt husk (dinkelspelzen) bolsters, straps and cork yoga blocks to ensure your practice is pleasant and comfortable.

Norbert and Surya are both Yin Yoga certified teachers. They are accredited by Natalia Kim one of the first students of Paul and Suzee Grilley.

 

Ashtanga Yoga (Mysore & Led)

Ashtanga yoga takes it roots from Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. In his Yoga Makaranda he covers over 40 asanas, closely sequenced to the way we know it. After T.Krishnamacharya the ashtanga legacy was picked by his students among which are widely known B.N.S Iyengar and Patabhi Jois.

Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic sequence where asanas are connected by a vinyasa. All postures are practiced sequentially and continuously. A distinctive feature of this yoga style is Ujjayi breath, a breathing method achieved by narrowing the throat to a thin slit. Besides asana and breath there is another important aspect of the practice – the focus point or Drishti. Only with asana, ujjayi breath and drishti the practice becomes complete.Each practice starts with five rounds of Surya Namaskara A and five rounds of Surya Namaskara B, followed by standing, seated and finishing sequence. Each movement throughout the practice has a fixed inhale/exhale and a Drishti.

Led class is verbally guided and does not require one to know the sequence by heart. Mysore style requires one to be familiar with the sequence, or to be able to follow the asana chart .

Ashtanga yoga is great for those who want to establish a serious practice discipline and those who want to become strong and flexible in a relatively short period of time. While one might find it challenging to practice the same sequence over and over again, the other will see it as an opportunity to bring their mind into order.

Norbert’s and Surya’s lineage of Ashtanga Yoga practice meets Sri Krishnamacharya through BNS Iyengar. They have also completed an advanced teachers training with David Swenson and a three weeks immersion into Pranayama & Asana with Guruji BNS Iyengar.

If you are new to Ashtanga yoga and are planning to attend more than one class with us, we strongly recommend to take one or two individual classes prior to joining. This is necessary for you to get familiar with the sequence, asana alignment and your personal asana variations (if needed).

Mysore vinyasa

We developed this sequence based on Ashtanga vinyasa series and equipped our studio with infrared heaters to provide you with an authentic hot Mysore experience. The room is heated to 30 o-35o as practicing in such conditions has countless health benefits. The most outstanding are: improved blood circulation, pain relief, detoxification, reduction of muscle tension, relaxation, weight loss, skin purification and immune system boosting.

This dynamic class is great for beginners and advanced practitioners. Although this class is based on Ashtanga yoga, it has over 8 different sequences.

You have to approach this class with caution if you have any severe health issues, especially those related to heart and blood pressure.
