Hatha yoga

Duration: 60 minutes
Intensity: ☆☆
Need: Own Yogamat

Goal: Yoga brings your body in top condition, and with it your mind.
.
Hatha is a Sanskrit word that can be broken down into two smaller words: ha, meaning “sun,” and tha, meaning “moon.” The word may also mean “willful” or "forceful.” In yoga, Hatha yoga is one of many types of yoga practice. The practice of Hatha yoga focuses on total mastery of the physical body, including all bodily functions. It also emphasizes activating the chakras in order to stimulate kundalini and promote spiritual and physical well-being, including the elimination of diseases. In yoga philosophy, Hatha yoga was originally considered to be a preparation for spiritual yoga practice as control over the physical body is believed to assist in developing control over the mind and spirit. Through the practice of Hatha yoga, the individual attempts to balance the mind, body and chakras through specific asanas and controlled, meditative breathing that complements the physical movements of the body. The fundamental text for Hatha yoga is the "Hatha YogaPradipika," and the practice has its roots in Hindu yoga. Hatha yoga has become popular as an exercise that many Westerners participate in for the physical benefits alone, without the pairing of a spiritual practice.

Easy Flow Yoga

Duration: 60 minutes
Intensity: ☆☆
Need: Own Yogamat

Goal: Easy Flow Yoga is a gentler class than the Yoga Flow. Softer poses with less physical strength needed. It builds balance and creates space in body and mind. A great class to relax…slow down….increase flexibility and let go.
.
Flow yoga is a term given to a style of yoga where the practitioner moves gracefully from one pose to the next and the class, or practice, becomes almost like a dance. Generally, each movement in to or out of a posture is made on an inhalation or exhalation, so the yoga unites the breath with the movement in a choreographed sequence. The flowing movements may be combined with some longer holds of certain postures.
.
Classes of Flow yoga will usually begin with gentler movements to warm up the body, then into progressively more challenging flowing sequences. These may include balances, inversions and peak poses. It may end with calmer, deeper stretches, and often floor-based asana practice. Flow yoga classes are perhaps some of the most popular yoga classes in the West. This may be because of the physical workout they can provide. The breath synchronization of Flow yoga is said to maximize the positive benefits of the practice, making it like a moving meditation. The breath works by: Maintaining the pace of the sequence, preventing rushing through postures Keeping the body temperature consistent Giving a greater mental focus Helping block out distractions Assisting in finding the proper form of postures
.
Easy Flow Yoga helps the body to get stronger, muscles become more flexible and improve the condition. It provides physical, emotional and mental balance. It mediates between the dynamics of the effort, and the rest of the relaxation. Easy Flow Yoga is a dynamic form of yoga with the aim of increasing energy levels and vitality. The class starts with a meditation and ends with relaxation (Savasana) Several coordinated postures (asanas) are interconnecting by flowing movements, breathing and focus. The flowing movements create a harmonic energy distribution. It's possible to use of so-called "props" such as pillow, special blocks and blankets so that each attitude can be adjusted and is workable for everybody at a leisurely pace.

Poweryoga

Duration: 60 minutes
Intensity: ☆☆☆☆
Need: Own Yogamat

Poweryoga stems from the traditional ashtanga yoga and focusses on moving into strong postures (asana's) and breathing at the same time. Poweryoga gets you into the body and out of the mind. Poses are done on the mat but also standing up. It creates a strong body and a good balance between body, mind and soul.

Vinyasa Yoga

Duration: 60 minutes
Intensity: ☆☆☆
Need: Own Yogamat

Goal: Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. Inhalation is usually connected to upward, open movements, while exhalation is often tied to downward movements or twists.
.
Vinyasa is often thought of as just one of many yoga types. Some people, however, see it as more essential to one's practice. Without it, they feel the practitioner is merely doing stretches without great health benefits. Regardless of your perspective, the term, vinyasa, has come to encompass a range of general and specific definitions. As a category of yoga, vinyasa includes, but is not limited to, Power yoga, Baptiste yoga, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, and Prana Flow. Because vinyasa practice puts a strong focus on sun salutations, most vinyasa classes will focus heavily on this sequence. In fact, “Take a vinyasa” or “Go through yourvinyasa” has become shorthand for completing a sequence of poses leading from the Sun Salutation, and including plank, chaturanga dandasana, upward-facing dog, and downward-facing dog. The continuous movement of vinyasa reflects the impermanence of all forms and the necessity of accepting change to achieve balance and completeness.

Yin Yoga

Duration: 60 minutes
Intensity: ☆
Need: Own Yogamat

.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time: five minutes or longer per pose is typical. In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang. Initially, yin yoga sessions consisted of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that primarily affect the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues, the "loading" of which is a main focus in this style of yoga. It contains elements of mindfulness and has a soothing effect on body and mind.
