Free Floating Aerial Yoga

with Claudia Lederer

 Learn to fly, to let go and surrender yourself to your partner, the hammock, and see the world from new perspectives, literally. Aerial Yoga is becoming increasingly popular because exercises that appear impossible in classical Yoga suddenly become easy, without putting a strain on the joints, while still being demanding and powerful. The morning class is dynamic and powerful; the afternoon class quiet, relaxing and restorative.

Attentive Practice for Your Back, Neck and Shoulders

with Anna Trökes

Hardly any other area reacts as sensitively to loads, stress and pressure like our shoulder girdle. This is because this area is streaked with a network of nerves, that react quickly under pressure, and the fascias, that surround our muscles, when stressed, contract, harden and sometimes even become matted. Our shoulders are then hard and tense, and we are limited in our movements.

An attentive, slow yoga practice with many gentle stretches and rhythmic movements help us make our fascias softer and open, so that our muscles can relax again. The breathing exercises loosen tensions in our mind and soul, so that we can act longer against the stress and tensions.

Yoga Shanti & Yin Yoga, Level 1

with Sona Sondhi (in English)

Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concept of Yin and Yang; opposite and complimentary principles in nature. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body using passive traction and gravity. Yang Yoga is any dynamic practice that develops muscular strength and stamina by using repetition and movement, whilst Yin Yoga improves range of motion and health of deep tissues and joints. 

Yoga Shanti (Restorative Yoga)
Yoga Shanti is a restorative yoga practice. A restorative yoga sequence typically involves five or six poses, held for a long time. The poses are held for between 5-10 minutes, fully supported with props, combined with breathwork, hands-on healing and guided meditation techniques, so that you can completely relax and rest. This is a therapeutic and gentle yet effective practice for bringing the body into balance.
