Hatha Flow yoga classes are for students who like to practice yoga in a less dynamic manner and also serve as a preparation for Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. The classes are oriented towards the foundation of yoga, like building up a practice towards sun salutation through easy warm-up postures, Vinyasa Krama (breathing-movement-system), alignment, awareness, pranayama (conscious breathing), meditation, drishti (mind focus), dharana (concentration), and philosophy.
Hatha Flow yoga with Anouschka represents an integration of a variety of yoga styles like Iyengar, classical Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga, to start your journey into yoga at ease, building up a safe foundation for your personal practice. Postures and techniques are applied according to the practice level of students.
The aim of these classes is a step-by-step building up of a stable foundation for your yoga practice, integrating techniques and developing vitality, flexibility, breathing rhythm, and awareness.
Ujjayi means “victorious” and is the most powerful pranayama technique that, when practiced properly and regularly, has an immense cleansing and profoundly purifying effect on the practitioner. Ujjayi breathing is the foundation for Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and can be applied in any other yoga asana practice or just as a pranayama exercise.
The sound produced in Ujjayi guides the practitioner to synchronize their breath with the movements in Vinyasa (breathing-movement-system) while remaining in the asana. Ujjayi can also be practiced while seated during a pranayama session, as well as before or after any Hatha yoga session.
The technique of Ujjayi should be a prolonged breath which should be smooth, like a prolonged sigh or the sound of ocean waves coming and going. This sound is gained by slightly contracting the epiglottis backward so the breath can flow behind the back of the opening throat while the mouth is closed.
The chest lifts up during inhalation, opening the rib cage and the lungs. During exhalation, the air is smoothly pressed out while the chest slowly moves down. The movements are caused by the diaphragm. In ancient days, it was said that Ujjayi pranayama would melt the snow and even helps you to conquer death. These are some of the benefits of Ujjayi breath:
