Hatha Yoga classes in English
Classes are suitable for advanced beginners, also recommended for those who wish to strengthen the foundation of their practice. The classes focus on yogic cleansing techniques, proper breathing, body alignment and learning the basic and intermediate yoga postures, strengthening the lower back, abdominal muscles, legs and upper body. This class promotes balance, flexibility and stress reduction.
Yoga means union. The word comes from the root Yuk, which means to yoke, to join or unite. In Hatha Yoga one practices asanas (physical postures) and pranayama (breath control) to find union of body, mind and breath. The body is strengthened and prepared for meditation. Ha-Tha means Sun-Moon, always maintaining equilibrium. In Yoga, you also discover that you are not separate from the Oneness. The connection between Jivatman (the individual soul) with Paramatman (Supreme Soul or Brahman) is realized.
Prenatal Yoga in English
on Fridays (PÉNTEK) at 5:15PM with Zsofia Fischer
Yoga, the ancient practice of body and mind, is adapted to maximize its benefits for the period of pregnancy. As yoga in general, prenatal yoga helps to find balance, physical and mental health while observing yourself, turning inwards. During pregnancy, naturally you turn your attention to the growing embryo, to the baby. By observing the sensations of the body while strengthening and stretching, you tune in to yourself and to the baby.
During prenatal yoga, besides doing yoga asanas (postures) and other exercises, you also learn breathing, relaxation and other mental techniques which can greatly help you during the pregnancy and delivery. Prenatal yoga, besides keeping you fit and healthy throughout your pregnancy, helps to prepare your body and mind for the birth, so it becomes a wonderful experience. Prenatal yoga can be practiced during the entire pregnancy, except for weeks 9 to 12 when only breathing and relaxation exercises are permitted.
