Every class and private session is prepared individually with weekly new lesson plans; the asanas and the pranayama practices I modify according to the condition, experience and progress of my students.
My Yoga-lessons start with breathing and centring, followed by postures (asanas) and breath-expansion (pranayama), and they close with relaxation and sometimes short meditations. I adjust postures to student’s individual needs so they are suitable for beginners but also experienced students who look for a challenge. My style of Yoga aims to be approachable by most people.
The health and safety of my students is of the utmost priority, this requires consideration, awareness and thoughtful planning. This is why I ask new students to complete a health questionnaire, the results being reflected in my lesson planning.
What to wear
I recommend to wear clothing in which you feel comfortable. It should allow you to move and to stretch and should neither fit too tightly nor too loosely (i.e. avoid large t-shirts as they might not allow forward bends without slipping over your shoulders). You may want to bring a sweatshirt or long-sleeve shirt to wear at the end of class as you are cooling down. Yoga is practised barefoot so that feet have a better contact to the mat and to avoid slipping inside the socks or tights.
What to bring
Please bring a non-slip (yoga) mat. A light blanket or warm clothing is useful for the relaxation at the end of the class.
If you have long hair think to bring a soft hair-band that allows you to lie down without causing pain.
Before your class
Avoid eating heavy meals two hours before the lesson. You might want to bring bottled water, plastic bottles are allowed in the classroom. Plan to arrive 5-10 minutes before the class starts; classes begin promptly.
Remember to turn your mobile phone off. Please do not chew gum and please refrain from smoking, consuming alcoholic drinks or using cologne/perfume before attending the class. Thank you!
Please practice quietly while in the yoga room and refrain from active social engagement with others during the yoga-class to help create and maintain a quiet space.
