Besondere Kurse

RESTORATIV

Still and mainly asanas with long timings with emphasis on inversion postures. Not suitable for beginners; if in doubt, seek advice!

PRANAYAMA

Body and mind are attuned to the breath and energy experience. The appropriate sitting posture is practiced. Refinement of natural inhalation and exhalation; training of necessary mindfulness; Ujjayi, Viloma, Brahmari Pranayama, etc. To be taken only as a second class together with a weekly asana class. Not suitable for beginners; if in doubt, seek advice!

GENTLE YOGA

Normal practice incorporating life and age-related limitations. The postures can support aging in a powerful and restorative way.

YOGA FOR WOMEN

Normal practice with special attention to the needs of women.

YOGA FOR PREGNANCY

Adapted to pregnancy, safe, mindful postures are connected to the breath and provide calm, clarity and well-being.

MOTHER-BABY-YOGA

About 8 weeks after the birth, the woman can start again with an (adapted) practice. These are gentle postures that meet the need for recovery and restore stability and strength to the body. As long as the baby can not yet activly crawl, the course “Mother-Baby Yoga” works. A small group of women practice under guidance; the babies lie with them and are (hopefully) content.

YOGA WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS

In the case of a variety of health problems can be practiced without further ado in the normal class. Inform the teacher before a yoga class about existing limitations (pain in the neck, knee problems, back pain, menstruation or similar) and you will be offered alternatives and help in class if necessary.In case of more serious limitations, injuries or illnesses you can arrange a private class (see below). The first step: a personal consultation (by phone if necessary). There we clarify the route and arrange a (first) appointment.

PRIVATE LESSONS / INDIVIDUAL LESSONS

It is entirely up to the practitioner’s concern as to what topics are covered, whether it be detailed corrections of “normal” postures or the creation of a home exercise program that takes into account specific problems or limitations that may receive too little attention in a normal exercise class. Date and price after personal or telephone arrangement.

WHAT IS ONLINE TEACHING IN REAL TIME?

The lessons take place live with teacher and together with other practitioners through the video conferencing software. We use “Zoom”, a free app for the participant:in for Windows, iOS and Android. Optimal is the installation on a laptop. PC, tablet or smartphone can also be used.


HOW DO I REGISTER? HOW DO I PAY?

The link in the button above will take you directly to the “zoom session” currently taking place.

Participation requires that you have also booked the lesson (e.g. with a 10-card, course series, time card). If necessary, see the booking overview.

For single bookings:

– 0 € – for those enrolled in the studio as a follow-up opportunity

WHAT DO I NEED TO PRACTICE ONLINE?

A little effort in preparation contributes to success. Tidy up your space and provide a clean, inviting environment with good lighting and the recommended props. Notes on the web device (laptop or similar) below.

PROPS (IMPROVISE IF NECESSARY)
  • Non slip mat
  • Yoga-Belt
  • 2 Blocks
  • 2-3 yoga blankets (not too soft!)
  • if possible a yoga bolster (“big pillow”) or other sitting support
  • space at the Wall (1,5 or 2 meters)
  • if possible a folding yoga chair, otherwise a stable, simple chair
  • if possible a wall rope set (all tools are available in our store!)
WEB DEVICE AND SETUP

Download the Zoom app to your device (laptop, tablet or smartphone). >> https://zoom.us/download

Place the device across your mat, if possible 2-3 meters away, 50-60 cm above the floor.

Adjust the lighting. Avoid standing in front of a bright window, as the backlight is disadvantageous for the camera and screen.

Sit still and prepare yourself internally for the practice.


Preparation for the CLASS

Please join 5 to 10 minutes before the lesson starts to make contact and check the audio and video settings.

Finally, if everything is correct, check that your audio is set to “mute” (bottom left of the control bar). In Zoom you can switch between “Gallery View” (all present) and “Speaker View” (only who is speaking). In the beginning, it’s probably right to choose the gallery view to “look around” to get a feel for the community. To start practicing, you can then switch to “Speaker View” with the larger view of the teacher.

If you prefer, you can turn off your video, then you will continue to see the teacher, but he will not see you. You can turn your audio back on at any time to ask a question.


PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY / CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION / DATA PROTECTION

As in the normal courses, our general rules of participation as well as the data protection regulations also apply to the online offerings as far as meaningful. These can be seen in full using the links below.

The most important thing in the practice in class repeated here:

Participation in all events is at your own risk. We are not medical professionals. Our instruction, advice or recommendation does not replace the advice of a person licensed to practice a medical profession under German law. When in doubt, consult a physician before beginning a physical exercise program.

Krankenkassenzuschuss

In der Liste links steht bei manchen Lehrer:innen ein ” KK “, das für “Krankenkassen-Zuschuß möglich” steht. The details are available from the individual teachers. The studio manages the booking and issues a receipt. The certificate of attendance and other specific requirements of the health insurance companies are administered by the teacher:in him/herself.
