Vinyasa Flow – All Levels
Vinyasa Flow – All Levels
Postures or asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect, helping you to de-stress, detox and rejuvenate. We will build heat, endurance, flexibility and strength while incorporating standing and seated postures, forward and backbends, hip openers, twists and balancing poses. You will feel energized, de-stressed and fantastic! Open to all levels of practice but if you are normally not very physically active then please attend Hatha Yoga instead where you can practice the poses at a slower pace.
Are you a beginner to yoga? We encourage you to start with our Beginner’s Yoga class, Hatha or Yin & Yang first to build a good foundation.
Please note that every teacher brings her/his own style, pace and creativity to their classes, so no Vinyasa Flow class is the same. We have purposely not reinvented different class names for each teacher to keep it simple – after all yoga is yoga.
Vinyasa Flow 2 – Intermediate
Open to yogis with 6 months minimum flow practice and without physical limitations. Vinyasa Flow Level 2 classes are like a dynamic invigorating sun salutation dance. Postures or asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect, helping you to de-stress, detox and rejuvenate. Classes build heat, endurance, flexibility and strength while incorporating standing and seated postures, forward and backbends, hip openers, twists and balancing poses. These classes will involve learning arm balances and inversions in a safe environment. Join us for a some fun as we explore the next level of your asana practice. Please note, Wednesday’s 20h15 class will be a more challenging.
This Vinyasa class is intended for those with a solid Vinyasa or Ashtanga practice, see description to the left. Classes are fast paced and invigorating, not for beginners or those with injuries or problems with back, hips, knees etc. If you are unsure please attend the Warm Gentle Flow first to test how you manage practicing with the heat.
Inside Flow & Vinyasa on Beat
Fun new style, Inside Flow taught by Maura Pianaro. For the time being, that class will be 90mins long to allow for a deeper learning about asasa alignment and transitions, as well as techniques to build up strength and flexibility to flow through them confidently in your practice.
The style is a Vinyasa Flow on Beat. Learn how to connect breath, music and movement. Create a healthy and sustainable flow practice that you can do for years to come. Transition more smoothly from asana to asana. Deepen your flow practice.
We recommend to start with Vinyasa on Beat or Inside Flow + Alignment, before you take an Inside Flow 60min class. We recommend for all that you have completed at least 20 yoga classes and not recommend if you have any injuries unless you have good awareness to be careful with what you can and can't do.
What is Inside Flow?
Inside Flow is the evolution of Vinyasa Yoga. Your breath is guided by your movement, synchronised to the music. In Inside Flow, you are singing a song with your body. You transition and move from one asana to another while connecting breath, movement and music. The class starts and you are in the Flow. This practice is a powerful moving meditation.
Open to all levels of practice and abilities, this class focuses on an exploration of basic yoga poses and how to connect them through attention to breathing, proper alignment and mindfulness. These classes will help you increase your flexibility and strength in a safe gentle flow, while relieving and preventing back pain, strengthening the core, releasing stress and and leaving you with a feeling of inner peace. No yoga experience necessary. Great for beginners or anyone that loves a slower paced vinyasa flow yoga class.
Hatha yoga is a class where you will be challenged with more static poses - working the alignment in detail, building heat and stamina. There might be a bit of flow occasionally, but generally this slower class will give you the ability to go deeper in the postures - working your alignment, stretching and strengthening. These movements will increase circulation, improve posture, relieve tension in the body, and create a sense of well-being. Breathing, relaxation and meditation techniques will be practiced to make this a well rounded yoga class. Great for beginners or anyone that loves a slower paced yoga class.
Chakra yoga, a hatha yoga practice rooted in ancient traditions, focuses on the various layers of energy fields surrounding the physical body (the so-called “subtle body” or “energy body”) with the purpose to create a balanced activation of energy flow between the 7 main energy centers or chakras, responsible for different behaviors, mental and physical values in life such as vitality, security, communication, compassion, self-confidence, love etc. Chakra yoga is a slow paced but strong practice, with long holds of hatha yoga poses, with precise physical alignment cues but also energy awareness cues for students to perceive the specific chakra/energy center activation and flow of energy in each particular pose. It takes your practice to a deeper level of energetic or subtle awareness. It brings balance and an enhanced energy flow with a great impact on all levels of your being: physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual, that will reflect in all areas of your life.
Yin & Yang
This class begins with Yin Yoga, a passive form of yoga that helps move Chi through the meridian lines, and over time stretches the deeper connective tissues of the body. At other times we may begin with Myofascial Release that will help you to release tension, knots and break up scar tissue in the fascia system. It is similar to self-massage ⎼ improving your muscular performance and your overall well-being. The class then moves into a strength building practice with a focus on slow flow and alignment. Sometimes we will mix it up and start with a bit of yang before yin, then yang again, ending with a deep relaxation and meditation. Great for beginners or anyone that loves a slower paced yoga class with a bit of flow. This class is also offered in Walferdange in a heated room to help your joints, muscles and ligaments to open further.
Heated Deep Stretch
This class is not Yin, but yin yogis will love it! Ghaith will guide you through many poses to go deep into your muscles, ligaments, tendons, scar tissue and fascia, using long holds and props. Taking a few minutes in each pose allows one to really “sink” into areas of tension in the body. There is deep attention to the breath and exploration of how moving slowly and breathing deeply can de-stress us completely. The class is perfect for the end of the day to unwind the body, mind and soul before bedtime.
Suitable for complete beginners or anyone with issues in the body. Yin is a slow-paced class with postures or asanas that are held for longer periods of time, mainly performed on the floor. Through gravity, the yin poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility which is so necessary as we tend to lose flexibility as we get older. Yin poses open up the nadis channels (energy lines) in the body, improving organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. These classes, to which we will also add a number of meditative, pranayama (breathing) and restorative practices, are perfect for people who feel stiff in their bodies (either from too much sitting – or too much “physical workout”). Whether you are a complete beginner or more experienced yogi, you will leave completely relaxed – physically and mentally. Additional Myofascial Release work will be integrated into classes that are taught by Jennifer Crisman. Myofascial Release will help you to release tension, knots and break up scar tissue in the fascia system. It is similar to self-massage ⎼ improving your muscular performance and your overall well-being.
Yin Yoga + Nidra (sleep yoga)
If you like Yin you will love this class. Edina will take you through 60 min yin yoga sequence which will be followed by 30 min of Yoga Nidra.
What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra also known as “yogic sleep” is a form of relaxing guided mediation.
It’s an ancient Yoga technique used to reset the nervous system, to reduce stress and anxiety and to bring mental clarity.
Neuropsychology has revealed that yogic sleep has a positive effect on our brain, body and the entire physiology and psychology. It calms the thoughts and improves concentration. It also improves memory and learning ability.
During a Nidra meditation you get into a certain state of mind, the so- called alpha state of mind which is an activity of the brain where alpha waves between 8 and 12 hertz are active. This is the particular edge between being awake and being asleep, which is also called the gateway to your subconscious.
How do I practice Yoga Nidra?
This is the best part – you just lie down and have a rest!
The teacher will guide you during the extended Savasana. The practice draws your attention inwards, and you learn to surf between the states of wakefulness and sleep, where the body finds its natural state of equilibrium (homeostasis) – the breath balances and becomes quiet, and you fall into an innate state of deep, blissful awareness.
Our candlelit room will be cozy and warm and will serve as a safe space for you to completely relax and let go.
What do I need for this practice?
To help you feel warm and comfortable we suggest bringing your own blanket, maybe a small pillow and a pair of warm socks.
Therapeutic yoga for lower back, shoulder and neck pain.
‘Therapeutic’ means to support the body’s healing process in a sustainable way. Therefore, a therapeutic class is not relaxing, i.e. it’s not Yin Yoga. If you want to effect sustainable systemic change in the body, it requires effort and intense practice.
This involves movements that you don’t usually do in your everyday life. You will be taken through different asanas, which you will have to hold for a bit longer than usual, to fully challenge and improve your strength and stability.
The aim is to release tension and relieve the body from unpleasant sensations. Instead of flowing through powerful sequences, the focus rather is on static poses that target specific body parts and areas of the body to strengthen and stretch them in order to achieve long-term benefits, increase overall well-being.
BarreYoga is a full body workout, empowering and strengthening both your body and mind thanks to a harmonious combination of the techniques used in Ballet, Fitness and predominantly in Yoga. The class begins with a Vinyasa Yoga inspired floor work on the mat. Once all muscular chains are awakened, Barre workout takes place. This part of the class is mainly inspired by Ballet, as we will be using Barres to work on balance techniques, as well as lower body strengthening.
The class goes on with core work, mainly based on Fitness techniques done either on the mat or with the support of the Barres. Finally, each class ends with stretching exercises on the floor or with the support of the Barres and a lead relaxation.
As we explore the different dimensions of movement, we will build up strong yet lean and functional muscles as well as coordination, balance and grace. It is open to everyone wishing to improve their muscular performance, deepen their flexibility and improve their stamina.
Pre-Natal (please join Yin, Hatha or Yin&Yang)
Due to the irregularity of pregnancy, it is too difficult for us to maintain a Pre-natal class. But this doesn't mean that you have to stop or can't start a yoga practice. We encourage Pregnant and Post-natal women to join any Yin & Yang classes and for something more gentle Yin classes.These classes are slower paced to allow you time to go inward and connect to yourself and your baby.
If you a very physically active woman and your pregnancy is low risk, then you are welcome in the Hatha Yoga classes, except classes given by Samuel. Please inform or remind your teacher that you are pregnant until your sixth month.
Best teachers, cosy/familiar atmosphere, quality and choice of courses. I'm so happy I found and chose this Yoga studio!
Excellent yoga teaching. Good energy. Nice people. Large offer of classes. Hands-on, technical teaching.
Good teachers - lovely place and a lot of different courses.
If you are new to yoga, Jennifer will make you love it - at least this is my personal experience. As for those who have been into yoga for a while, Jennifer's guidance, patience and dedication make them come back for more. I can highly recommend.
I have been practising yoga for more than 10 years. I discovered the barre yoga class at YogaBalance just recently and really love it! It combines the positive effects of yoga, including stretching and relaxation, with some ballet exercises at the barre. You can feel graceful like a ballerina, while training your legs at the same time. And not to forget, Hannelore is a great teacher! So I really recommend you to come and try one of the classes.
YogaBalance is such a great yoga studio! I feel at home there, it is a community as much as a studio. Jennifer is an amazing teacher!
I always have a good time in yoga class. The teachers a awesome and the atmosphere is very positive.
It's so nice to be back on the mat with you again. I'm so glad we can start in September immediately. I also want to thank you to give us all lots of options of the plans to choose from and great rate too!
