Yoga stems from Sanskrit, it means “union of the individual consciousness or soul with the universal consciousness.”
Yoga is a 5000-year-old Indian philosophy. In the Western part of the world, most people see Yoga as not more than a physical exercise to stay fit. In fact, though, it offers fitness not only for the body but also for the mind and soul by practicing the Asanas (postures). In your practice, you start to build up strength, consciousness and patience with yourself and others.
There are a lot of different ways how to practice Yoga. I mostly focus on the eight limbs of the Yogasutra of Patanjali – in my daily life as well as in my Yoga practice.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is one of the many different Asana styles. It embodies the dynamic connection between the Asanas (the body movements) and Pranayama (the breath).
My classes are mostly influenced by the original Vinyasa Flow and always include sun salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching.
My Classes will always be adjusted to the students’ individual levels with major focus on alignment and the correct carrying out of the poses.
Whether the class is dynamic or soft, it always includes inversions (adjusted to the students). A usual class starts with warming up the ligaments and joints to make the body and muscles soft and warm to prepare for class. We then continue with a Surya Namaskara variation (Sun Salutation) to come into a perfect flow and then start the Vinyasa practice which ends in Savasana (relaxation), as resting is just as important as the active part of the practice itself.
