Program

Vinyasa yoga is a Yang form of yoga. In Vinyasa yoga you take different postures, Asana's, in which all muscles in the body are used. It makes you strong and loan. It makes you aware of tensions in your body. Tension causes an obstruction in motion and reduces blood flow in muscles and organs. By loosening tension and by consciously breathing, you will notice that emotions and stress are left loose. A stronger sense of mental balance arises. Vinyasa yoga class starts with a small meditation.

Yin yoga postures are more passive postures, mainly on the floor. You're asked to relax in the posture for a longer period. It's a more meditative approach with a physical focus. As one age, flexibility in the joints and muscles decreases and Yin yoga is a wonderful way to maintain flexibility. The intimate practice of yoga requires students to be ready to become intimate with themselves, their feelings, sensations, and emotions.

There are 5 days with classes and 1-day excursion.
