Yoga for You

Satyananda Yoga is an internationally renowned system of yoga, which promotes the alignment of body, mind, emotions and spirit. Discomfort, tiredness and mental stress can be relieved by awakening the individual’s awareness and inherent self-healing powers. You don't need to be flexible or fit to start practicing Satyananda Yoga. People of any background and ability are welcome.

Business Description

YOGA for YOU teaches classes in the style of Satyananda Yoga. Classes are held in our studio, which is solely dedicated to the practice of yoga and meditation. The classes are small (10 people max) and the atmosphere is friendly and personal.

A typical class in Satyananda Yoga moves from gross to subtle aspects of our being – from body, to breath, to mind. After a brief centering period, we do asanas (postures) for about ¾ of the class time, followed by pranayama (breathing practice) and end with either Yoga Nidra (deep guided relaxation technique) or a meditation practice. This works extremely well and enables even very restless people to experience a sense of inner peace and expansion by the end of a session. I offer beginners, level 1 and level 2 classes – in this way people are systematically lead into the practices, which is especially important for pranayama and meditation.

Once a month there is also the opportunity to attend a 2 hour session on Saturdays to learn more about yoga philosophy, yoga psychology or other aspects of yoga. And it really goes without saying that in all classes or session, the individual’s needs and limitations are always considered and alternatives or modifications are offered.

We also offer Pregnancy Classes, Mum and Baby classes, and Birthing Consciously Classes, workshops …. and of course our monthly Kirtan evenings (chanting)
