MY ROCKET VINYASA YOGA
If you're looking for a dynamic, strengthening flow where you get to try fun transitions, inversions as well as head- and armbalances, all in good fun and for the joy of moving around, then this is deifinitely something for you!
ABOUT THE ROCKET
Larry Schultz, the founder of It’s Yoga®, created The Rocket® Routines, a series of postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga primary and intermediate series. The perfect marriage of tempo and sequence. These advanced routines are appropriate for all levels levels of students. With plenty of ways to modify the classical poses, the benefits of the poses are transmitted equally to renew vitality and energy. This vibrant routine is called the “Rocket” because, “it gets you there faster.”
MY VINYASA YOGA
In my Vinyasa Yoga classes I aim to create a fun and playful atmosphere, preferably to some nice music. I like to build some heat through a dynamic flow where you're also free to modify into more or less advanced poses depending on your daily preference and/or individual level.
ABOUT VINYASA YOGA
Vinyasa can be translated into "breath/movement system".
It 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. The Vinyasa Yoga asanas, or poses, are derived from the Ashtanga Yoga tradition. (www.yogapedia.com)
MY YIN YOGA
In my Yin Yoga classes I strive to create a space where you can be aware of and in you body as well as your mind. As in traditional yin yoga we melt and soften into positions, stay in them for a longer period of time and let gravity do its work. Letting our fascia stretch out and then slowly, carefully creep back in order to make it soft and elastic. The classes may be with or without soft music in the background.
ABOUT YIN YOGA
Yin Yoga has its roots in China, unlike the more popular and active yoga disciplines, which originated in India. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. The yin poses, therefore, are passive and performed while seated or in a reclining position. The poses are held with the muscles fully relaxed, allowing time and gravity to deepen the stretch and target the fascia. The time spent holding these asanas is similar to meditation.Yin yoga poses tend to resemble poses used in other disciplines, but use different names. Despite the similarity of the poses, the yin versions are performed differently from their active, or yang, relatives.(www.yogapedia.com)
MY HATHA YOGA
In my Hatha Classes we slow down the tempo, and take some time to really get into the different asanas, or postures. We focus mainly on breathing, alignment, the connection between breath and movement and ultimately and hopefully that profound connection to self. My aim is to create a peaceful and harmonious space, often with the help of music.
ABOUT HATHA YOGA
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.” Practitioners of Hatha yoga use physical alignment and breathing control to achieve an equilibrium between the active body and its universe. The resulting harmony manifests itself as physical strength, physiological health and emotional well-being. (www.yogapedia.com)
