Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated to “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance.
It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body. When a class is marketed as Hatha, it generally means that you will get a gentle introduction to the most basic yoga postures. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation
Vinyasa, like all yoga styles, originated from Hatha yoga. The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next.
Teachers lead classes that flow from one pose to the next without stopping to talk about the finer points of each pose. That way, students come away with a good workout as well as a yoga experience. Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga, and Prana Flow could all be considered vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa is also the term used to describe a specific sequence of poses (Chaturanga to Upward-Facing Dog to Downward-Facing Dog) commonly used throughout a vinyasa class.
If you’re new to yoga, it is a good idea to take a few classes in a slower style of yoga first. Like Hatha yoga to get a feel for the poses.
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia. This practice is designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation by stretching connective tissue around the joints (mainly the knees, pelvis, sacrum, and spine). It is a more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a interconnecting. A passive practice, that gives you the tools to slowly open up and get ready to explore the underlying depths of your physical, mental and emotional being.
Prental classes helps the soon to be moms connect with the baby and her own body. These classes will keep you fit during your pregnancy and it will prepare you for that special day. You learn to connect with your new body and mind. During the classes we pay attention to breathing and relaxation techniques. The various yoga postures are safe to practice and specifically tailored for the pregnant body. Giving you the space to turn inwards and get in touch with yourself and your baby.
Prenatal yoga can also help you meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the any possible stress of being a new parent.
The classes are meant for women from 14 to 36 weeks.
Mama & Baby Yoga
Mommy and baby yoga is meant for mom and baby together. It is a combination of yoga and massage for baby and postnatal yoga for mommy. The lesson is aimed at giving the body attention and strengthening. We do this by activating the abdomen, back and pelvic floor muscles in a safe and gentle way. And all this while your baby is close to you. Throughout the practice you have the option to involve your baby in the movements with you. This way you can strengthen the bond with your baby in a playful way. And sometimes baby’s just sleep all class. That’s fine as well. The baby’s are welcome just as they are.Our classes are very casual, there is always time to feed or even change diapers. Mamas without a baby can also participate the class.
Previous yoga experience is not necessary to fully benefit from the classes, and women who have practiced yoga before will find these classes are a great way to transition back to their pre-pregnancy practice.
The lessons are from 6 weeks after the delivery. Always check with your doctor first if the appropriate time is for you to start “exercise” again.
Babies are welcome until they start crawling
Kids yoga is a form of yoga that is designed specifically for children. It includes poses to increase strength, flexibility, and coordination.

It not only helps kids become more flexible and healthy, but it also increases their self esteem, concentration, and much more.
Classes are from age 6-12 and all in Dutch
