Yoga has the ability to build strength, release tension, and create more flexibility in the entire body.
The benefits of yoga can be experienced on many levels. On the physical level, you will gain strength, flexibility, coordination, and notice an increase in stamina and endurance as your body heals and becomes more balanced.
Emotionally, you will become calmer.
Beginners are more than welcome. Classes are open to everybody, all sizes, all fitness levels!
As a beginner, we advise you to pace yourself and listen to your body. Remember that yoga is not a competition.
The main goal is to improve and maintain your own physical and mental vitality, not to wrap your legs behind your head (although this may occur eventually!).
Please advise us if you have any injuries.
Othélia teaches a fusion of various styles of yoga with an emphasis on mindfulness and guiding you on a journey of self-discovery, using physical postures/asanas to create a fit, supple, healthy and strong body together with pranayama/ breathing techniques to extend and control the breath, creating strong, healthy lungs and a body filled with energy/prana.
Together the asanas and pranayama create a relaxed body and mind forming the basis for meditation:
the true goal of yoga and the ultimate path to self-discovery and inner peace.
Ingrid’s classes are slower paced to focus on proper alignment, while building strength and increase flexibility. Ingrid believes yoga is for every body – regardless of age, shape or fitness level. She focusses on connecting breath movement and bring mindfulness into her practice, so that one can take what you have learnt on the mat and integrate that into one’s everyday live. She combines pranayama, asana and meditation to create an atmosphere of mindfulness, inner peace, compassion and self-love in her classes to order to achieve balance and harmony in the body.
Overall a highly enlightening experience, which improves health and well-being, reducing stress and promoting relaxation rather than a pain induced power-yoga workout.
