DEEP REStorative sessions

Restorative yoga traditionally targets the nervous system, up-regulating the parasympathetic (rest and digest) response and down-regulating neuromuscular activity to create and maintain a state of equilibrium and optimal health in the body. Through the art of masterful prop arrangement (otherwise known as ‘Bolster Ballet’) you can maximize these intentions, addressing individual circumstances including posture, limited flexibility, hyper-mobility, injuries, and other musculoskeletal concerns.

the HIP OPENERS

Your hips are the connection point of both the spine and the legs. The ‘hip girdle’ and the 17-25 muscles that it encompasses are the central station of the body. We could refer to the hips as ‘the mother of all movement. When they’re open, you’ll be much more mobile above and below them’. So, working on hip mobility improves your relationship with the rest of your body and its overall wellbeing. In yoga, we are able to move our ball-and-socket hip joint through its full range of motion, and move in ways that break our usual patterns, whether those patterns are ones of underuse from a sedentary lifestyle, or overuse of particular muscles and neglect of others from a very active lifestyle.

The yoga disciplines for the Hip Openers class differs every month, which allows you to experience various practices!


Once a month on a Saturday from 14:00-15:30

Note: You can participate in this Special Class with your membership card, 10-ride pass, 5-ride pass or via your OneFit card (limited spots).

Zen Special

Zen Special is a practice that combines two disciplines: Yin Yoga and Body Scan meditation. Both practices aim to increase body awareness. 

The long-held poses of the restorative Yin Yoga effectively stretch the meridians—the energy channels that oversee the energy flow of the body, which increases body awareness. 

The Body Scan practice is a meditation that guides you systematically through various parts of your body, starting from your feet to your face. This meditation helps you to be more conscious about your bodily sensations, reduce stress, relieve tension, and decrease bodily aches. 

With the combination of powerful practices such as Yin Yoga and Body Scan not only the richness of the class is enhanced, but also the effect. The conscious focus on your body can make you aware about sources of pain and tension you weren’t aware of before, such as clenched muscles. This class therefore provides a great opportunity to notice what your body feels and needs, which can help improve your well-being! 

Once a month on Saturday from 16:15-17:45

Note: You can participate in this Special Class with your membership card, 10-ride pass, 5-ride pass or via your OneFit card (limited spots).

 

 
budokon

Budokon Yoga

Mixed Movement Arts Yoga

As warriors we cultivate the courage to change what can be changed. As Yogis we cultivate an understanding and acceptance of what we cannot. As Humans we learn to discern the difference between the two. Learn how Budokon combines martial arts and yogic principles taught in the tradition of our Budokon system – the ‘Way of the Warrior Spirit’. Budokon Yoga style continues to be one of the most influential and important innovations in modern Yoga history.

Once a month on a Thursday from 20:00-21:30

Note: You can participate in this Special Class with your membership card, 10-ride pass, 5-ride pass or via your OneFit card (limited spots).

HIIT yoga


Enter HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) – short, intense bursts of movement with a very high heart rate followed by short periods of rest. In the shortest amount of time, you strengthen the body (including bone and joint health), burn calories and fat, and optimize cardio health as if you had worked out intensely for an hour!


In this class we combine a vinyasa yoga flow with short bursts of HIIT exercises based on yoga alignment and western anatomy knowledge. These HIIT sessions will be sprinkled throughout the sequence in the style of Tabata: 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest for a maximum time of four minutes. You will flow, sweat, stretch and safely experience the most effective, fun and empowering workout there is!
 

Once a month on a Wednesday from 20:00-21:15

Note: You can participate in this Special Class with your membership card, 10-ride pass, 5-ride pass or via your OneFit card (limited spots).

KUNDALINI SEQUENCE

Kundalini refers to a form of primal energy that is located at the base of the spine. Represented as a serpent coiled around your first chakra, the energy of kundalini is known for its transformative power in the process of self-development and spiritual development.

In the Hindu tradition, where these concepts as we currently know them come from, kundalini awakening is both a process and an objective for spiritual development. It leads to the union of personal consciousness and cosmic and divine consciousness.

If you want fresh air, a fresh mind, and a fresh destiny, Kundalini is for you. Within the vast cannon of teachings in Kundalini yoga, there is a practice for everybody—a posture, a breath, a mantra, a meditation, a mudra—that will be practical and powerful for each person and deliver the peace, intelligence, clarity, energy and prosperity desired.

Once a month on a Thursday from 20:00-21:30

hatha

HATHA YOGA & LIVE MUSIC

Traditional Hatha Yoga is an old form of yoga based on the Sutra’s of Pantanjali. It is a gentle form of yoga, where we search for the essence of movement and asana’s from an inner perspective. Traditional Hatha Yoga is rooted in these teachings: Practice yoga in softness, stability and comfort and expand your practice from this place and this place only. Traditional yoga is for every-body and every level. With this Special Class we'll have a super gentle form of Hatha Yoga combined with the beautiful live music from Dana van Breukelen. You can listen to her music here

Once a month on Wednesday from 20:00-21:45

Note: You can participate in this Special Class with your membership card, 10-ride pass, 5-ride pass or via your OneFit card (limited spots).

 

YOGA & breath work

Every month at The Conscious Club with Ramon Kinkel we have a special Yoga & Pranayama class. Pranayama is derived from 2 Sanskrit words - Prana (life force) and Ayama (control). Therefore, in its broadest description, Prananyama would mean the control of the flow of life force. 

During the breathing exercise for Pranayama, inhalation (puraka) stimulates the system and fills the lungs with fresh air; retention (kumbhaka) raises the internal temperature and plays an important part in increasing the absorption of oxygen; exhalation (rechak) causes the diaphragm to return to the original position and air full of toxins and impurities is forced out by the contraction of inter-costal muscles. These are the main components leading to Pranayama which massage the abdominal muscles and tone up the working of various organs of the body. Due to the proper functions of these organs, vital energy flows to all the systems. The success of Pranayama depends on proper ratios being maintained between inhalation, exhalation, and retention.

These classes are suitable for all Ayurvedic constitutions.

Once a month on Wednesday from 20:00-21:15

acu yin yOGA

Acu-Yoga is a practice that combines two disciplines: Acupressure and Yoga. Both techniques aim to improve and rebalance energy circulation. From this perspective, it is believed that when there is a stagnation in energy circulation it will cause imbalance, disharmony and disease. Tension accumulates in the body due to underuse or overuse of muscles, repetitive movements, emotional repression or a poor diet. Accumulated tension can increase body toxicity and weaken the immune system.

Yoga and in particular Yin Yoga with its long held poses is an effective way to stretch meridians which are energy channels that oversee the energy flow of the body. To increase body awareness, the overall process is supported through the use of breath.

Acupressure manipulates the body through the stimulation of meridian points on limbs, the torso, and the head.

When we use Yin and Acupressure together we enhance their effect. The practice helps release energy flow into meridians, and nourishes the organs in all body systems. During the class we will create a balance of emotions and a feeling of overall well being.


Once a month on Sunday from 12:30-14:00

Note: You can participate in this Special Class with your membership card, 10-ride pass, 5-ride pass or via your OneFit card (limited spots).

naturalmovement.jpg

natural movement

In this class we explore our primal movement patterns and discover what our bodies are capable to do through the lens of evolutionary physiology and environmental adaptation.

We work on our flexibility, strength and coordination by creating mobility chains looking at the way humans used to move and animals still do.

Mobility gives us options to move in different ways - the more mobile we become the more options our body has to respond from a muscle and tissue perspective. Organizing our body is more a neurophysiological process. Therefore, building up different and new ways to move leads to more and more neurological connections - what keeps our brain fit and healthy.

Please wear a fitted shirt covering your shoulders due to the floor work we do during the class. There is no movement experience required, only a curious and playful mind-set.
