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.


Yin-Yang Yoga

In this class we practice together a varied Yoga based on the Yin-Yang principle. We explore the slow and the fast, the gentle and the strong, the letting go and the activating and everything in between. In this way we let our body and mind explore the different facets of life and at the same time explore ourselves. The observation of the inner and outer is practiced, the acceptance and devotion of these states is encouraged and thus the physical and mental well-being is strengthened. We explore, we listen to ourselves, we move and release, we let go and come back to our own life force, the origin of life itself.



In meditation the thoughts are brought to rest. Through mindfulness or concentration exercises the mind can calm down and gather. The goal is a state of "inner peace". It is about the self-control of the mind. Our attention and the activity of the mind should not be constantly distracted or controlled by external stimuli or internal impulses.

Thus we learn in meditation to gain an awake attention and to steer our mind with our will.

From a medical and psychological point of view, meditation makes sense in order to reduce everyday stress and the hectic pace, to find peace of mind and to improve our ability to concentrate.

Meditation can help you to find access to a positive attitude and joy of life. It brings inner peace and creativity. It can also help you to improve your sleep, cope with stress and strengthen your immune system in general.


Yoga 50+

Yoga can be practiced at any age. This course is aimed at everyone over 50 who would like to maintain and promote their health in a gentle way without any pressure to perform. The simple yoga movements gently strengthen and stretch the muscles, ligaments and fasciae. Through regular practice, joints and spine are mobilized and stabilized. All movements are adapted to one's own breathing rhythm. Yoga promotes inner peace, mindfulness, concentration and increases one's own vitality.
