A yoga group class with a mix of hatha- and vinyasa yoga.
Hatha yoga, a quiet traditional form of physical yoga, consisting mainly of non-moving asanas. It is a great way to get to know the asanas and their alignment and awareness.
Vinyasa is a fluid, dynamic form of yoga in which different poses alternate with the rhythm of the breath. The constant focus on breath and movement brings attention easily into the now. Elements from the sun salutations are a recurring part and are used as a connection between the postures. The emphasis is on increasing (inner) strength, concentration and endurance.
Each class has fixed components, such as a gentle warming up, (a variation of) sun salutations, standing and ground postures, meditation and relaxation.
Every body is different, so the postures will be different for every person. We will explore together what is functional for you, for your body.
An individual yoga class has many advantages in addition to your personal growth.
On a physical- and mental level it can give more deepening and understanding of the postures and how they can help you.

Yoga is great for focus, concentration, and emotional wellbeing. Seniors can benefit tremendously from the practice and it gives them a place to quiet their mind and start to slow down in life. Group classes are also wonderful for an older population because it gives them a sense of purpose and community.
