Ashtanga Yoga (Led)
During this guided class you will be led through the Ashtanga Half Primary Series, guiding you up to Navasana’s half way point of the sequence. The class consists out of a fixed series of postures, and Desirée will count and talk you through the practice. We focus on increasing strength, flexibility, and a tranquil state of mind. Expect to get sweaty, both because of the physical practice and a focus on the free breathing technique with sound that heats up the body.
Ashtanga Led Classes are open to students of any level, although a medium level of physical endurance is recommended.
This 60 minute class is a nice flow that is accessible for everyone. We take on different postures during this class, with many possible variations of the same posture, making sure everyone can enjoy.
Between every pose we connect the postures with a flow of movements, so the entire sequence becomes one enjoyable flow. We move on the rhythm of the breath, using every inhalation and exhalation in perfect harmony with the movements.
This 60 minute Yin Yoga class has a focus on calming the mind and body.
It is a slow paced, restorative practice that offers stillness and relaxation. It is the opposite of the styles of yoga that are know as “yang” styles, which are the more fast-paced styles like Vinyasa and Ashtanga.
During Yin Yoga classes we practice restorative poses that we hold for a couple of minutes to completely relax.
During this practice we use props like yoga blocks, bolsters, and pillows.
During this 60 minute class we create a safe space, a non-judgemental space for healing. This is a mindful, restorative yin yoga practice where we hold poses for a longer time to really be with and explore sensations that come up. During this practice we use props like yoga blocks, bolsters, and pillows.
We incorporate gentle flows (vinyasas) during class and you are invited to take time for intuitive movement. This class is all about your own experience, feeling what’s right for you and your body. Yoga is a somatic, body-based approach to healing.
