Yoga is an ancient system with roots in India. However, even nowadays we can achieve well-being, health, personal & spiritual development, healing and freedom from our busy minds through the many different tools of yoga and through understanding the wisdom, philosophy and psychology of yoga as explained in the main text of Yoga, the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali.
Everybody, no matter what kind of body, personality, age, gender, religious belief, cultural background or situation can practice yoga. Classical, individualized yoga is suitable for both beginners and more experienced practitioners, for those who need to heal and strengthen and for those who just want to stay healthy.
Whether you book a private session or a small group class the content will be varied and adjusted to the situation, the person or the group. Different props like blocks, belts, bolsters, blankets or chairs can be used if needed. The yoga classes and the individualized yoga practices often contain a centering followed by different suitable standing, sitting or lying movements (asana) in coordination with the breathing as well as the important relaxation at the end. When the student/group is ready for other breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation (dhyanam) and other yogic tools souch as sound/mantra/chanting or affirmations, also these aspects will be taught. Yoga therapy consultations always bring symptoms, prerequisites, wishes and goals into consideration.
Every lesson is based on the knowledge and wisdom of the main classical yoga text, the Yoga sutras of Patañjali. You can learn more about what yoga is and get to understand the depths and width of the yogic system during specific yoga workshops. Examples of workshop themes: yoga theory (important principles and concepts from yoga psychology and philosophy), pranayama, meditation, ayurveda, yogic mindfulness or yoga & stress reduction.
