YOGA IN ENGLISH
Hello Expat Yogis,
welcome to Budapest!
We have some great yoga classes in English
for you in the heart of Budapest:
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.
IYENGAR YOGA CLASSES IN ENGLISH
Iyengar Yoga is one of the world’s most widely-practiced forms of yoga. Originally devised by BKS Iyengar, it’s famous for emphasizing the correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose.This precision in approach builds strength and stamina, balance and flexibility, and a sense of well-being. The focus on alignment also causes the mind to penetrate inwards, leading to meditation in action, where the practitioner learns to exist fully and vibrantly in the present moment.
We frequently use props, including blocks, blankets, belts and chairs to make yoga poses accessible for all students.
YIN YOGA CLASSES IN ENGLISH
Yin Yoga postures are more passive postures, mainly on the floor and the majority of postures equal only about three dozen or so, much less than the more popular yang like practices. Yin Yoga is unique in that you are asked to relax in the posture and soften the muscle. While yang-like yoga practices are more superficial, Yin offers a much deeper access to the body. It is not uncommon to see postures held for three to five minutes, or longer at a time.
We are trying to access the deeper tissues such as the connective tissue and fascia, and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint (hips, sacrum, spine). As one ages, flexibility in the joints decreases and Yin yoga is a wonderful way to maintain that flexibility, something that for many don’t seem to be too concerned about until they notice it is gone.
The time spent in these postures is much like time spent in meditation, and I often talk students through the postures as if they were trying to meditate. While in a Yin class you might notice similar postures to a yang class except they are called something else, on a basic level this is to help the students mind shift form yang to yin, active to passive.
Due to the slow and calming pace, the benefits of Yin Yoga are very similar to those derived from meditation and relaxation activities. While holding poses for extended periods, students have the time to connect with the inner self to bring about tranquility from within. Many believe that because of the pace of modern life, particularly with the influence of technology and social media, there has never been a bigger need for programs like Yin yoga, which effectively enable students to unplug themselves from the outside world and recharge their physical, mental and Pranic bodies.
PRIVATE YOGA CLASSES IN ENGLISH
Traditionally, yoga was taught one-on-one. Private yoga lessons are an excellent way to achieve the full benefits of yoga, as they are fully customized. They are held off-site at people’s homes or offices, in which you receive direct and personalized guidance in your Yoga practice.
Each hatha yoga class is specifically designed for you, programs can be built around physical postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation and mantras, based on your individual needs. Learning and practicing asanas and pranayama, taking into consideration your fitness level, your stress level, your personal health and goals is the most effective way to learn yoga.
Private yoga classes can be one-on-one or in small groups (for instance couples, family, friends). They usually last 1.5 hours.
