What is Yoga?

"Yoga is Sanskrit and means to bind, join or attach to direct and concentrate the attention to use and apply. It also means union. It is the true union of our will with the will of god; the union of all the powers of body, mind and soul to God; it means to discipline the intellect, the mind, the emotions, the will and to look at life in all its apsects evenly. It is a salvation of pain and sorow" (B.K.S. Iyengar The illustrated Light on Yoga, 1).

Yin Yoga

Deep fascial stretch & Relaxation. We are getting into the Asana very gentle and then holding it for a longer time  (~ 1 to 5min) . Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the muscular & dynamic styles of (yang) yoga to release tension.

The Asanas stimulate the channels of the subtle body known as meridians in Chinese medicine and as nadis in Hatha yoga. Yin Yoga poses put moderate stress to the connective tissues, the tendons, fascia and ligaments with the goal of increasing fluidity in the joints and improving flexibility. 

in Yoga follows more a meditative approach with the goal of finding awareness of inner silence. & stillness.

Hatha Yoga

 To unite and balance our both energies Ha (Sun) & Tha (Moon) through Pranayama, (Breathing) Asana (Posture) and Drishti (Gaze).

Practiced more slowly and with more static postures to enhance flexibility and build strength.  Perfect for beginners or individual needs.
