Yoga Classes

Yoga for beginners

For everyone who is interested in yoga and its benefits, this is the ideal class to take. The first yoga classes will bring you a little bit further to build up your own body´s strength, find focus and increase flexibility of your entire body. All positions and movements which will be shown in the first classes are linked to different breathing techniques. In this session you will get to know some basic and fundamental yoga postures and principles which create a successful and effective yoga practice. During the session you will feel the energy flow in your body, which is an experience you only face while doing yoga.

Vinyasa Yoga

It is one form of yoga where your breath will synchronize with your movements. Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses controlled by the power of inhaling and exhaling. All different movements or poses are flowing with one after the other; that is why it is often called “Vinyasa Flow”.

As with any other yoga styles, Vinyasa yoga has physical and mental benefits. Sweating during the classes will extrude toxins and re-energize your body. The synchronized breathing in combination with the poses will set the energy throughout your entire body free.

For experienced, as well for beginners, it is a great class to join to take the challenge for yourself and your yoga skills to the next level.

You need to breathe and move smoothly from one position to another, as if you were in a kind of dance. The style, the speed, and the sequence will vary amongst each instructor.

Power Yoga

It is a form of Vinyasa Yoga, but is fitness-based and requires a more active form. This term is mostly used in the Global North as this style of yoga started with two Americans. Originally this kind of yoga was called Ashtanga – to make it more easily understood amongst people, especially in gyms, it received a new name – power yoga. It does not, like many other forms of yoga, include a standard set of series. Every lesson can be completely different and it depends a lot on the instructor and the student´s stamina.

The emphasis during this class is to raise your metabolism, strength and flexibility to new heights. Every major muscle group will be used during this new style of yoga. It is good for anybody who likes to stay and be fit, gain flexibility and sweat together with others.


Taking your practice to the beach can help you challenge yourself, protect your body, deepen your poses, feel better about life and even recover faster.

Breathing in the sea air has many health benefits that are only enhanced with yoga. Your body can actually absorb oxygen easier thanks to the negative ions that are present in the ocean air. These negative ions can also help naturally boost your serotonin, which can help you feel more relaxed and happier during your yoga session.
