Courses

Learn the basics of yoga or meditation from scratch systematically and safely with a small group in a friendly, relaxed setting with one of our Beginners’ Yoga Courses or Meditation Courses. Taking a course is also a way to renew your practice after some time away or to strengthen the foundation of your existing practice. The courses combine practice, theory, and discussion of health and well-being to help you to integrate the techniques of yoga and meditation into your everyday life. The yoga practices are taught step-by-step, including: 12 basic yoga postures, the sun salutation (surya namaskar), proper breathing or pranayama, and relaxation techniques. For an experienced practitioner, our Advanced Courses offer an opportunity to deepen your practice with more challenging variations and a longer holding of asanas to build strength, flexibility, and a quiet mind.
