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 refers 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.

Once a month we'll take a journey through the hip openers of a variety of yoga disciplines.

THE ZEN SPECIAL

The Zen Special
A combination of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra as the perfect break in the middle of the weekend.

Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a deep meditation technique that is easy to learn, accessible to all, reduces stress, and is a deeply personal experience. Also called yogic sleep, in this practice you relax in savasana pose while a teacher takes you through the five layers of yourself, known as your physical body, your energy body, your mental body, your intellectual body, and your spiritual body. This meditation will allow you to explore your deeper self in a way that you never have before. 

Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra
For 1.5 hours, we will combine this deep meditation with a restorative yin yoga practice, unlocking some new insights about your spirit, body, and mind. This class will help you charge your batteries and prepare for the coming winter, giving you some new perspective.

hathalivemusic.jpg

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.

hatha & breath work

Every month at The Conscious Club with Ramon Kinkel we have a special Hatha & Breath Work 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 breathing 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 very suitable for all Ayurvedic constitutions.

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!

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.

acu-yin.jpg

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.

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.

yogahangdrum.jpg

Yoga & Hangdrum

Hang drums have been designed after years of research into the percussion instruments. There are a number of notes and tone fields around the surface giving rise to different quality sounds. The sound produced with hang drums is very warm and softer than all other percussion instruments. Due to the richness of the sound produced, it has a healing effect upon the mind and the body.

In this class we’re combining these healing sounds with the healing power of yoga and meditation. The teachers will guide you through this class with nice sounds and a hatha-based yoga sequence followed by meditation. Their goal is to let you leave this class without any tensions or stress, and with a big smile on your face!
