“Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is what you learn on your way down” – Jigar Gor
 
Yoga is great for increasing your strength, flexibility, for reducing stress and allowing for greater relaxation. You don’t need to be flexible, fit or spiritual to start practicing yoga. All you need to do is to step on the mat and have fun! Starting this September I will teach two classes per week, one 75 minute Yin Yoga class and one 75 minute Vinyasa Yoga class at Cloud/Danslab.
 
In a Yin Yoga class we will hold the postures, asanas, for 3-5 minutes, which makes Yin Yoga a more slow-paced form of yoga. In Yin Yoga we stimulate the organs, immune system and joints, while allowing the muscles to relax. Not only has this class positive effects on the body, Yin Yoga is also designed to improve the flow of energy through the energetic channels (meridians) to improve emotional well-being.
Vinyasa Yoga is a form of Yoga in which the poses, asanas, are linked together to form a flowing sequence. Vinyasa means “connection of breath and movement”, thus in this class we will smoothly transition from pose to pose guided by our breath. As a result we work on our physical strength, flexibility and endurance. Everyone can join this class, the class will be designed for beginners, but more challenging options are available for students who want to deepen their yoga practice.
Would love to meet you on the mat! 
 
Namaste,

Yin & Vinyasa Yoga by Arianna Berardi

In May & June 2018  every  Wednesday at 6 pm
Arianna Berardi will be teaching  Yin & Vinyasa Yoga !

Lab description:

In this Vinyasa & Yin lab we will explore two different worlds of yoga. Literally, Vinyasa means “to place something in a special way”. In a Vinyasa flow, which will be the style of half of the classes, we will coordinate breath and movement, moving into asanas (poses) in a flow-like way. In these classes, you will experience the dynamic and energetic nature of a Vinyasa flow, getting in touch with your body in a fun and challenging way. In the other half of the classes we will explore Yin yoga: a relatively recent style of yoga that combines knowledge from Traditional Chinese Medicine with the more traditional Indian asanas. During a yin yoga class, you will hold poses for 3 to 5 minutes, diving into a meditative state, letting go and releasing of any tension. By finding stillness in a pose for long, yin yoga aids the fluidity of our fascia, a deep sheet of connective tissue that surrounds our muscles and organs. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? The goal of this lab is to make yoga accessible and enjoyable to as many people as possible, no matter the age, physical condition or level of acquaintance with yoga. Everyone can join and enjoy! The classes are based on free donations, which means “give what you like/ what you can”.

The lab will start on May 2 , classes will be every Wednesday at 6 pm. Doors open at 5.45 pm. In the first class, we will begin exploring Yin yoga. Bring your own mat if you have one, there will be four mats available in case they are needed. Comfortable clothes are advised, together with a warm sweater or jumper for the final phase of the yoga practice. I am really excited to embark on this journey, and looking forward to meeting plenty of curious and passionate yogis!

About Arianna:

“I discovered yoga five years ago, when I first moved to the Netherlands at the age of 18. For a good while, I found in yoga a great physical work out, and a way to put my busy mind on hold. It was only after a few years that I started experiencing a more meditative way of practicing yoga, slowly turning inward to get to know myself on different levels. I am currently following a Yoga Teacher Training, and if all goes well, I will be certified in a couple of months! And as you all can imagine, I am really excited to start practicing with teaching at Cloud. Besides my love for yoga, I am also very passionate about singing, expressive painting, art therapies, and some fields of Psychology. I am currently finishing a master in Child Psychology, and excited about exploring ways to combine art, yoga and children.”
