YOGA FOR A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
MONDAYS AT 20:45-21:30
ONLINE via Zoom
This class is starting on the 21st of December.
In order for us to sleep better our bodies need to settle into a parasympathetic mode where rest and healing can happen. Oftentimes, especially after a busy day, our minds are racing, our breath is fast and shallow, and we might experience aches and pains in the body which can all disturb our sleep.
We need to free our minds from the constant chatter of the mind so that we can easily fall asleep and our brain can reset itself during the night. Releasing physical tension, calming the mind, and freeing the breath brings our whole being in a parasympathetic mode and prepares us for a restful night. ‘Yoga for a good night’s sleep’ class is designed specifically to wind down after an active day. During the 45 minutes we will meditate to bring calmness in the mind, learn to breath fully and deeply, and release bodily tension through specific yoga poses. Especial attention is given to the hips, legs, and spine. This class is suitable to all level of yogis from complete beginners to a more advanced students.

During this 75 minutes early morning yoga class, we will first gently wake up the body and then continue to a more vigorous yet safe practice that will prepare you to meet your day energized, focused, and fully alive! The class will start with a balanced practice that opens up the body and brings energy and strength. Breath will give rhythm to all movements, keeping your mind focused and helping you turn inwards.
Early morning is the perfect time to practice Sun Salutations and standing poses, because they give you the energy, grounding, and strength to face whatever challenges might come up during your day.
This class will give you the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a yoga practice throughout the whole day!
Suitable to all levels.

2nd & 3rd trimester
All expectant mothers from pregnancy week 14 onwards are welcome to join this class.
The focus of the class is in supporting the preparation for labour, both physically and mentally. Through the active poses and deep relaxation techniques, you will gain a deeper and more meaningful experience of the pregnancy, birthing process, and motherhood. Each pregnancy is unique, which is why each practitioner will be treated as an individual providing personal assistance whenever needed during the class.
You will learn relaxation and breathing techniques, how to connect with the baby to create a feeling of oneness, how to center yourself, and how to get more energized. Physical movements together with deep breathing will help you do the poses mindfully, with full awareness of the breath.
Every class will start with a meditation / breathing exercise session that helps you center yourself and connect with your baby. There will be a balanced flow of active practices and relaxation. The movements are rhythmic and always done pacing with the pace of your own breath. This allows everyone to do the poses as it is best for their body and baby. All movements are safe and carefully designed.
