Yoga is a very ancient Indian science that claims, trains and promotes body and mind at the same time.

Yoga - What does the word actually mean? The term "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit root "yuj" and this means "union". Yoga offers you more than just exercise, it is the union of body, mind and soul.


The physical exercises (asanas) strengthen the entire musculature, improve the flexibility and mobility and train the sense of balance. The careful execution of the exercises teaches us the conscious presence in the body. In addition to physical exercises, yoga also includes breathing and meditation exercises.

Regular yoga exercises / asanas bring many benefits, such as:

- better health and a better immune system

- it can relieve back pain and helps to better sleep

- It strengthens the bones and muscles

- and gives more energy and joy of life.



Pilates is a systematic whole-body workout, in which above all the deep muscle groups of the trunk (pelvic floor, abdominal and back muscles) are addressed. These muscles are responsible for a correct and physiological posture. Starting from the middle of the body, a strong center (Powerhouse) should be formed in order to erect the spine optimally. As a result, different complaints in everyday life, such as back pain, can be prevented.

Pilates training combines strength exercises, stretching exercises and relaxation exercises with conscious breathing.


Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Flow is a fluid and dynamic form of yoga. Sun Salutations and postures (asanas) are practiced dynamically and also with soft movements. Successive postures are repeated, resulting in one flowing vinyasa flow. Asanas strengthen the muscles and promote endurance, balance and flexibility. By bringing together breath and movement, body and mind are brought into harmony. Regular exercise increases your vitality and energy and leads to an inner balance. The lessons are suitable for all levels and there are also advanced courses in this style.


Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a very calm form of yoga. By holding positions for long periods, mainly while sitting and lying down, by sinking into a gentle stretch, you find inner peace and a deep breath. The positions are held for three to five minutes, so the deeper layers of your body (fascia) are awakened and stretched.

It also addresses connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, and joints, the yin elements of your body.

This class provides a good balance with active, muscular (Yang-element) body exercises.

It helps in an active, hectic, maybe stressful everyday life, to balance out and to find your inner peace.


Yoga Basics

In this class, you can take time to get in touch with your body, your breathing, and individual base asanas (postures). Slow and flowing sequences will be created piece by piece.

Suitable for yoga beginners as well as people of all ages. Even with many physical limitations, this class will not overstrain you.

A careful approach will ensure that you feel comfortable in your body with everything you bring with you.


Ashtanga Yoga Innovation

Ashtanga is the root of many of today's vinyasa practices. Each breath is synchronized to a specific series of movements or asanas that increase in intensity as you move through the practice.  It is a moving meditation focusing on the internal experience and challenges.

Ashtanga Yoga Innovation offers alternative vinyasas and Asana modifications enabling all levels and ages to practice together in the same rhythm. 


Elemental Yoga

Yoga based on the meridians, which internally balances and activates the organs. In this way, reactions and existing complaints of the body can be gently balanced. The well-being in the body is strengthened, mental peace is promoted and the deep connection to one's own nature is created. The fundamental natural principle of the five elements, earth, water, fire, air and ether, serves us here as a clear system of how we can develop ourselves through the Asanas / body exercises ("Yoga on the mat") healingly and intuitively in our lives ("Yoga off the mat").
