New!!! Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga for deep relaxation and flowing yoga exercises (asana) in harmony with the breathing rhythm form the focus of this course. The constant alternation of focus between strength, flexibility, relaxation and perceptive mindfulness creates a profound sense of well-being, which leads to an elimination of blockages. The flow of  our life energy (Prana) is deliberately stimulated by special breathing exercises, which recharge body and mind with new and fresh energy. Purposefully used relaxation and mindfulness exercises regenerate the autonomic nervous system in a natural way, counteract tension and prepare the body, psyche and mind for the complex demands of everyday life.

Thus yoga helps us find our own rhythm again, reconnect with our own sources of power and learn to respect our limits. The essential exercises of yoga are easily and understandably developed and practiced.

This class will be taught bilingually in German and English. Yoga- Newcomers are welcome, the class will be a mixed level Beginner/ Slow Intermediate.

Starting November 11th the next 10-week round starts. This is a course that is sanctioned by the public health insurance (a partial reimbursement for the cost can be obtained from the health insurance after completing the course).

It takes place Mondays from 8:15 am – 9:45 am

Cost for 10 classes/weeks a 90 Minutes: €160, minimum participants 6

New!!! Reformer – small group classes with the original Pilates Refomer

What is the Pilates Reformer?

The Pilates Reformer consists of a platform (the “bed” or “wagon”) mounted on or sliding over a rail. This platform is connected to the frame of the device via 5 springs and can be moved back and forth. On this platform you can practice Pilates exercises lying, sitting, kneeling, and even standing, strengthening your trunk muscles, stabilizing the trunk, and mobilizing the joints in a variety of ways. Unlike in mat training, we always work with a resistance, sometimes stronger, sometimes less, depending on whether the focus of the exercise is building strength, mobilization or stabilization.

We offer courses for small groups of up to 4 participants.

Our rates are as follows:

Trial Lesson 20,00 €
Single Lesson 25,00 €

Fascia Pilates

Since 2018 we offer Fascia Pilates Training

Fascias are connective tissue tracts that span our entire body, wrapping and connecting every muscle, every bone and every organ. Fascias want to be challenged, otherwise they will stick, matt and harden, resulting in reduced mobility or pain. The Fascia Pilates Training combines the classical Pilates exercises with different training impulses of the fascial-fitness principles according to Dr. med. Robert Schleip. This can be done for example by elastic bouncing, catapulting, rolling or sensing.

Fridays at 4:45 pm with Tanja

This class is suitable for Pilates practitioners of all levels and can be booked online. The cost for Fascia Pilates is the same as for mat classes.

Postnatal Pilates

The baby is there … but while the uterus contracts to its original size after pregnancy, the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles are extremely weakened and need active support. While working our way back to our old figure and form these are the muscles that need the most focus first. The goal is to get back to a stable body center. About six to eight weeks after birth, when the pelvic floor has stabilized a bit, you can start this course. For women who delivered via caesarean section, the wound should be healed well, the suture should no longer be painful.

The course training takes into account any existing rectal diastasis. The rectus diastase is a gap between the straight (vertical) abdominal muscle. It develops during pregnancy and closes in the first weeks after childbirth. During this time, it’s all about re-strengthening the underlying muscle layer in the abdomen, which encloses the trunk like an inner corset …… in the spirit of the Pilates method.

This is a not an open course, so online registration is not possible. If you would like to register for this course, please contact us by email or by phone. In order for the course to take place we need at least three participants.

At this time we do not offer this class.
