Yoga class schedule
Our small groups allow personal attention for every student. Most of our class are 90 minutes to allow a deeper practice with a more profound effect on the body and mind.
This is the classic dynamic Sampoorna hatha yoga class suitable for everyone. Beginners are guided and more advanced students provided with suggestions to deepen their practice. The class includes breathing exercises, warming-up and strengthening exercises, yoga postures and a deep final relaxation.
This class is slightly slower-paced and offers more detailed instruction than the All Levels class. The practice concentrates on the 12 basic yoga postures of the Sampoorna/Sivananda tradition, and includes breathing exercises, warming-up and strengthening exercises, yoga postures and a deep final relaxation.
This dynamic Sampoorna Hatha Yoga flowing class is faster-paced and includes more challenging variations of asanas than the All Levels class. To enjoy this class you should already be familiar with the breathing exercises and asanas practiced in the All Levels class. This class also includes breathing exercises, warming-up and strengthening exercises, yoga postures and a deep final relaxation.
Dynamic Vinyasa Flow
A dynamic flow and creative asana sequence, inspired by the ashtanga vinyasa primary serie. This class is designed to help you strengthen your body and will combine various body movements with breathing techniques. This class is aiming to improve your flexibility, balance and core strength and you will feel energized and relaxed. Music might be played during the class to encourage students to go deeper into their flow. Prior yoga asana experience is recommended (but not necessary).
Yin & Yang Sampoorna
This class combines the classic dynamic Sampoorna hatha yoga class with the slow moving, deep stretching and meditative Yin Yoga. This class is suitable for everyone. Beginners are guided and more advanced students provided with suggestions to deepen their practice.
Hatha Yoga and Sound Bath
Want to unwind, slow down and relax at the end of a busy day? A brief sequence of gently flowing hatha yoga postures will help to release tension and stress from your body. A healing sound bath with Tibetan singing bowls at the end of the session will bring you in a state of deep relaxation.
A perfect complement to a more dynamic practice. The slow moving, deep stretching and meditative Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes.
Using props (blankets, blocks, bolsters) to support the body, positions are enjoyed for longer periods, sometimes up to 15-20 minutes to allow the body time to release tension. This allows the mind to settle into deep stillness and the body to restore itself.
The Prenatal classes are an adaptation of the basic Sivananda class (Sampoorna Yoga is based on Sivananda) for pregnancy special needs. In this way the future mum can benefit of the physical aspect of yoga, as well as preparing breath and mind for labor.
