The hardest part can often be
just getting on the mat

All classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted. All classes can be adapted for all levels. Talk to the teacher before class if you have any limitations and be sure to practice at your own pace and in a way that is sensible for you.The temperature for hot classes is between 30° and 40° – usually around 38°. Morning classes are held at room temperature, around 22° – so make sure you have a sweater and warm socks and warm classes are held in a gently heated room  around 28°.



A yoga class described as ‘Hatha’ will typically involve a set of yoga poses and breathing techniques. These are often more slow and with more static holds of the poses than a Vinyasa flow or Ashtanga class.

Hatha is for you who likes a yoga class where you have a little more time in the poses, but still gets to sweat. You will leave the class feeling longer, looseer and relaxed.



Vinyasa is a style of yoga where you go from postures to postures, seamlessly, following your breath. These types of classes are often the ones where you sweat the most and do a lot of chaturanga flows. Two classes are ever alike. The variable nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day.



Yin yoga is a slow, deep and more meditative practise. Yin works deeply into our body with longer-held poses and targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia. The slow movements gives you space to turn inward, breath through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.

Yin yoga is for you, if you need to really come down and connect with yourself after a long and stressfull time. Yin is perfect for creating a good mindspace and for a better sleep.



Bikram classes are always the same, so they are perfect for you who love routines. Bikram is always a repetition of the same 26 poses in set cycles over a 90-minute class. The poses were chosen by Choudhury, the founder of Bikram,  from the classic hatha poses and are designed to "systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to 100 percent of your body, to each organ and fiber," according to the official

Bikram yoga site.
