Class types

We consider it important for you to know what lessons you can expect, so here's a short introduction to our class types. Classes vary in difficulty, but you can come to any class, even as a beginner as every asana has a simpler version.

Most of our classes are 75-80 minutes.

Beginners yoga, English beginners yoga

In beginners yoga there are fragments of the basic elements of hatha yoga, as well as their more easily accomplished forms. Beginners Yoga helps you get closer and closer to the actual hatha. Like hatha yoga, exercises don't require excessive effort or above-average flexibility but can move the full body well. Each pose is held for a shorter period, 3-5 breaths, but here it is also true that you only need to hold one pose until you feel comfortable. During almost the full class we use full-lung yoga breathing which raises body heat and promotes detoxification.

We recommend you this class if you are completely new to yoga and want to become acquainted with the discipline.

Hatha the „basic” yoga class, English hatha class

Hatha yoga is the oldest type of yoga. If you start with hatha classes you can easly follow other yoga styles, too. The best news is that the exercises don't require excessive effort or above-average flexibility but can move the full body well. Each pose is held for 7 to 10 breaths, but the truth is that you only need to hold one pose until you feel comfortable. During almost the full class we use full-lung yoga breathing which raises body heat and promotes detoxification.

We recommend you, if you are new to yoga or looking for a form of exercise that is not specifically based on strength, but moves you all over and energizes you all day long.

Dynamic hatha, English dynamic hatha

The essence of dynamic yoga is combining yoga postures into continuous motion. This type of yoga charges you with energy, yet it leaves you pleasantly exhausted. We build the class on a traditional hatha practice, but there is significantly less rest time between the asanas than in a regular hatha lesson. We also keep the exercises shorter and move on to the next one like a flow.

We recommend you this type if you've come across hatha exercises already and you don't mind when you sweat.

Vinyasa flow

This is the most popular type of yoga class in the United States, a dynamic yoga style. The focus is on the continuity of the asanas, the alignment of breathing and movement. In this class, we often use vinyasa (Sun Salutation) as a passage between the individual asanas. There are no pre-made sequences here, the lesson is structured by a trainer around a specific topic, such as hip opening, twisting, bending, balance ... etc.

We recommend you this type if you are already experienced, like challenges and dynamic movement.

Beginners ashtanga

During this lesson, we will discuss the elements of ashtanga in detail, and as the Asanas progress, we will become more and more committed to the actual Ashtanga yoga type.

We recommend you this lesson if you are interested in ashtanga but are afraid of ashtanga challenges and feel like you need some foundation before you start.

Ashtanga

A dynamic yoga type. An intense, fast-paced type of yoga where you have to be in constant motion, so it's physically demanding. You will need a basic endurance for this class.

The exercises are performed continuously without interruption in a specific sequence and the harmony of breathing and movement is important. Ujjayi breathing and proper application of bhandas (muscular locks) while in continuous movement increase the internal heat of body thus helping with purification. Here we hold the asanas for only 5 breaths which are connected by a typical movement (Vinyasa).

We recommend you the class if you are a progressive yoga practitioner and want momentum and dynamism.

Yin yoga

It is a static yoga type with long-lasting asanas, mainly on the ground. Yin Yoga is a very useful supplement to a more dynamic, 'yang' style practice. The challenge lies in long-held asanas, so you can comfortably relax in a particular posture to go deeper and stretching should also be more effective. Here you have the opportunity to relax and slowly release the pace of your busy weekday in addition to stretching your muscles and releasing emotional blocks.

We recommend this to you if you are aiming for total release, conscious muscle relaxation, self-monitoring, and increased self-awareness.

Female yoga

This class is specifically for women. Nowadays, many suffer from imbalances when the male-female energies are disharmonious. Lot of women are struggling with cycle problems, cysts, PMS, IR, etc. During the lesson we use Hatha Yoga asanas to stimulate the lower abdomen and the energy centers there and harmonize the functions of the hormone system. Great attention is paid to opening the hips and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. Through various visualization exercises and reinforcement, we also deal with the processes within us that help to deepen our self-awareness and resolve the emotional blocks that have developed.

We recommend you to activate your body's self-healing processes and to get to know your own femininity through yoga.

Spine-centered hatha

Spine yoga is a system urged to be created by the sedentary lifestyle of the modern age, which uses the tools of hatha yoga and physiotherapy. This is the perfect combination, as hatha yoga has the sole purpose of straightening the spine and physiotherapy is specialized in rehabilitation. Its purpose is to restore the health of the physical body and nervous system through a series of safe exercises based on basic anatomical movements. The physical effects of asanas allow you to develop and stabilize proper posture. But this is the class for you if you want to get started with the right basics as a beginner at yoga.

It is highly recommended for everyone who wants to improve posture, does office work, drives a lot or often has back/neck pain.

Daystarter hatha

It's a hatha based yoga class. We start from a lying position and awaken the body with gentle asanas and then continue to work harder. You don't even notice and we move the whole body while charging it for the day. Finally, we close the exercise with relaxation.

We recommend you this class if you want your body to be fully moved, to start the day fresh and to enjoy the benefits of yoga in the morning, to start your digestive process, to replenish and to help you with your difficulties throughout the day.

Prenatal yoga

Prenatal yoga can be a great way to prepare for childbirth.

If you're pregnant and looking for ways to relax or stay fit, you might be considering prenatal yoga. But did you know that prenatal yoga might also help you prepare for labor and promote your baby's health?

Much like other types of childbirth-preparation classes, prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies.

Prenatal yoga can improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth, decrease lower back pain, nausea, headaches and shortness of breath.

Prenatal yoga can also help you meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the stress of being a new parent.

A typical prenatal yoga class involves:

You'll be encouraged to focus on breathing in and out slowly and deeply through the nose. Prenatal yoga breathing techniques might help you reduce or manage shortness of breath during pregnancy and work through contractions during labor.

You'll be encouraged to gently move different areas of your body, such as your neck and arms, through their full range of motion. While standing, sitting or lying down on the ground, you'll gently move your body into different positions aimed at developing your strength, flexibility and balance. Props — such as blankets, cushions and belts — might be used to provide support and comfort.

At the end of each prenatal yoga class, you'll relax your muscles and restore your resting heart rate and breathing rhythm. You might be encouraged to listen to your own breathing, pay close attention to sensations, thoughts and emotions, or even symptoms of anxiety. You might get to repeat a mantra or word to bring about a state of self-awareness and inner calm. In certain sessions we might also work with sankalpas (positive reaffirmation) and in general try to bond with your inner self - and your baby.

Come join in from week 14 or even 12 if you have a steady prehistory in exercise and sports.

Power hatha yoga

A series of strengthening exercises based on hatha asanas. It is mainly used to strengthen the arm and torso muscles (deep back muscles, abdomen). It strengthens, improves endurance, balance, and flexibility. The result is a strong, lean body with strong muscles and a flexible spine.

We recommend you the lesson if you want to improve your hatha practice while eliminating distractions and relieving your daily stress. The result is freshness, inner calm and pleasant tiredness.

Hip opener yoga

A dynamic type with many hip opening exercises. Bound hips can be caused by unprocessed emotions that are stored majorly in our hips. During the lesson, we practice asanas to gradually stretch and relax the muscles around our hips. With this we will release the emotional blocks and release the tension to be ready to receive.

We recommend you if you want to loosen your hips and get rid of any emotional strain there.
