Certified English Speaking Vinyasa Yoga Private/Group Instructor specializing in Asanas & Pranayama

I am a professional dancer who has completed the 200 Yoga Teacher Training at Samyak Yoga in Mysore, India. My training is focused on the physical & mental state within yoga as well as breathing techniques called Pranayama to assist the practice and improve overall well-being. All of my private and group classes focus on making the yoga practice accessible for all practitioners from absolute beginners to advanced students.

I believe Yoga is a shared experience that requires equal commitment from the teacher as well as the student. I make sure that students have a solid understanding of the postures, their benefits as well as the transitions between then to create a strong practice on and off the mat. I am always prepared to challenge the student as well as adapt to their needs.

About Me

There is never a dull moment in class! Each specific class and lesson plan are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging movement activities, warm-up, and complex movement combinations in all styles includig ballet, jazz, hip hop, stepping, modern, contemporary and social dance. I am an energetic and patient teacher who seriously takes into account the needs and skill level of the student in preparing the lesson plans and material.

My use of dance vocabulary and physical demonstrations allow me to teach the material accurately and effectively. My positive attitude and constant words of encouragement keep students motivated and engaged in the lesson. Students will increase their knowledge and physical vocabulary of the movement style and leave each lesson a better dancer, performer and person.

I encourage students to bring writing materials to each lesson to take notes for any learned vocabulary and each lesson will follow with a recorded video of the movement for the students to refer to until the next lesson.

Bettina
Yoga and Meditation (5 Tibetans), Cours de Yoga, Vinyasa Flow
I'm specialized in Vinyasa Flow Yoga. My classes are dynamic, energetic and focus on connecting the body and mind through breath. My goal is to guide the students to live in harmony with their minds and bodies. I also teach the 5 tibetans in a way, that you will quickly be able to integrate in your daily morning ritual on your own. I teach for students of all levels. Beginners are welcome! The focus is on correct alignment and I recommend private classes for all beginners, before you you pick up "bad habits".

Kevin
Practicing Yoga for You (offering Hatha, Vinyasa, and Iyengar)
I worked as a trainer and private yoga instructor in New York City, and I can guide you through Hatha and Vinyasa-style classes based on what you need or what you want to know. My classes are energetic, rejuvenating, and serene, but they are ultimately focused on connecting your mind with your body through an awareness of your breathing and the strength in your own body.

Marijke
Creating and improving body awareness through yoga
Starting with gymnastics and dance since my early age, it always kept being a really important part of my life. It made me going into a world of performing acrobatics, teaching gymnastics/ yoga to children and adults (private and group classes). To my classes I find it very important to get people into their bodies in a way that it increases your own body awareness. Im able to teach various techniques but more focus will be on listening and being fair, understanding to your bodies needs. As I moved through a world of acrobatics, dance, yoga,.. I will use a blend of them depending on whats best at that moment.

Sania

Courses may vary according to demand and needs. I can adapt the course for people who have health concerns or who have a disability. -Specific courses of NADA Yoga which is a Yoga of the SON by the SONG especially of the song of Mantras (but not only). - Relaxation and meditation classes.

Professional and personal coach through L'Art therapy as a TRANSFORMATION tool of the person.
Goal ? The purpose of these workshops is not artistic production or learning techniques, but the discovery of a link through creation with oneself and others. This bond of life is a guarantee of a better being. These workshops provide a creative space for people wishing to connect with the forces of life. It is a work to find oneself, with its sensitivity, emotions, strengths and weaknesses. Who is it for? Art Therapy is for anyone looking for a process of self-transformation and evolution. For all audiences; children, adolescents, adults, the elderly. The workshops or sessions are addressed to the artist in each of us. The search for pleasure and aesthetic emotion is linked to artistic activity, with the guidance of the art therapist. Art therapy in institutions: children, adolescents, adults with difficulties or margins (hospitals, retirement homes, social reintegration areas, schools in priority teaching areas or with the razed network, class Cliss ...)

Luciana
Costumized Private Yoga Classes to tap into your needs and goals
**Private Hatha Yoga class at your home in the Brussels region (Your place must be accessible by public transport)**. The path of Yoga leads us to self-awarenwess, balance and harmony through breathing techniques (Pranayama), Physical postures (Asanas) and relaxation. As a Performing Arts Teacher and a Hatha Yoga Teacher I have oriented my classes so that students can connect with these foundations of the Yogic philosophy, and also connect with their needs, interests and goals, developing action plans in order to seize them.

Komal
Spiritual mind and body yoga from the beginner to the advanced level.
Most people only understand the physical aspect of yoga, which entails stretching and stances to limber up the body and improve posture. But there is more to it than that. It also has a profound impact on a person’s life because of the way that it changes the mind in three unique ways: * Spiritual Awakening * Mental Focus and Clarity * Self Discipline and Control

Laura
Yoga - Vinyasa Flow and Forrest Yoga, breath work, body awareness
My classes will introduce you to the beauty of flowing sequences and how to connect you breath with your movements. I will focus on energizing your body through core strenghth and dynamic flows or more grounding standing series. Explore your body through movement in a light and playful way and improve your flexibility while learning how to use your breath in a healing way. I'm offering private yoga sessions suitable for one person or small groups. Prices for small groups can be discussed. What I like about teaching: I'm interested in encouraging people to use their breath in an empowering and healing way. Further to that I like the combination of flowing movements and the cultivation of groundedness both with deep Ujjayi Breath. Through hands-on assists I like to support my students to get a deeper sensation of the pose and experience the borders of their bodies. In my classes I like to hold space for my students to experiment, discover their strength and to overcome fears.
