Due to the ongoing corona crisis I am now running an extremely reduced schedule under strict hygiene standards. The safety of all is paramount. For Yoga Explore only a maximum of 5 people will be allowed, for Meditation 7 participants will be possible. In order to attend you will need to book in advance to reserve a spot. Please do so via fitogram by clicking on this link: : https://widget.fitogram.pro/subtle-strength-yoga-in-fincan-neukolln?w=/calendar
I ask you also to please carefully read and follow these instructions before attending:
- Please bring your own yoga mat/meditation mat plus blankets and cushions if needed
- Please come dressed in your yoga gear/comfortable clothes (we no longer have a changing room)
- Please bring your own water/tee (we can no longer offer these)
- Please maintain your distance to other students and wear a face mask on entering and leaving the Fincan.
- Please use the disinfectant provided
Dispite the rules the last few weeks have proven what a joy it is to be back in the class room together. The Fincan is still a peaceful and happy place to be!
Note on price: Due to the low number of attendees I am asking for you to please pay a minimum of 12 euros/yoga class and 8 euros/meditation session. This allows me to pay the room rent and buy myself an icecream! If this is unaffordable for you please take a look at the self practice guides or email me for personal support.
Yoga in Prinzessinnengärten
From July 1st I am now also able to offer yoga outside in the beautiful Prinzessinengärten! With plenty of space and fresh air we dont have any restrictions on class size, so feel free to simply turn up! I would ask you please to bring your own mat and maintain a safe distance from other participants.
The meeting point for this class is 8.55am at the entrance to the Garden: Hermannstrasse 103-105. Payment is in cash 10-12 euros or via the Urban Sports Club app.
This is an open level class suitable for anyone and everyone!
The class is based around the six basic movement types present in a Hatha Yoga session: backbends, forward folds, twists, inversions, side angle stretches and balancing postures. Students are however encouraged to find their own variations and ways to explore the postures.
This is a class for more experienced Yoga students who want to take their practice a deeper, training peace of mind and physical strength. You don’t have to be an advanced practitioner of the asanas (no need to be able to put your legs behind your head!) but you should be familiar with some basic pranayama exercises and the sun salutation, as these will not be explained in depth. You should also be willing to practice with deep focus and self-care.
This class is an opportunity for all of us to research deeper into our own bodies and minds, thematising subjects such as love, surrender and strength. I will be your guide, holding the space, leading relaxations and suggesting exercises but there will also be room to enjoy silence and your own self-led practice.
Take a break. Take a breath. Step out of the busy week, close your eyes and tune in.
45 minutes dedicated to your own inner reality. Without distraction. Without expectation.
You don’t have to have a regular meditation practice to join us, everyone is welcome. This is a safe space for gently training inner stillness, encouraging the mind to slow down and saying hello to your true nature.
The session will either be led by Ana or Ina. Different simple meditation tools will be offered, from guided relaxations to simple mantras. At the beginning of each session we will take some time to stretch and release the body before finding comfortable stillness in a seated position. Cushions, blankets, chairs and other props are all available.
Breathing exercises, guided techniques and silence will follow.
The spine is our central channel through which information and energy flows and the plum line of our bodies around which everything else revolves. Both incredibly strong and uniquely flexible the spine treated well allows us to negotiated everyday life with elegance and ease.
For a lot of us however back tension and pain are familiar experiences. Whether it’s sitting too long at the computer, walking the hard city streets or emotional difficulties, at some point we all experience stiffness, sagging and tiredness. Which is why in this class we take the time to give our spine and the surrounding back muscles a whole heap of love!
Our focus is on alignment, length, flexibility, non-aggressive strengthening of the core and emotional release. Yoga understands that physical wellbeing is not merely a matter of exercise but an expression of mental and emotional wellness. For this reason we also practice conscious breathing, mental focus and deep relaxation.
Our goal is simple: to be able to sit in elegant stillness without pain, to be able to move with grace and strength.
