Yoga opens the way to your true goals
Yoga is a universal system of methods and techniques for personal development.
With regular practice of Asanas (body postures) in combination with conscious breathing, your body becomes healthier, more flexible as well as stronger and your mind calmer and more focussed.
Especially in fast-paced times like these, this can be the key to a balanced life.
In the last few years many surfers have started to practice yoga. This is no coincidence. If you have ever tried surfing you have probably realized that an extra portion of balance, strength and flexibility helps considerably to improve your performance. At the same time the mental aspect of yoga has the potential to free your mind from any kinds of inhibiting doctrines and awake unimagined abilities.

We invite you to participate at a holistic body-mind experience and to feel how intense life can be.
Leila is teaching Hatha Yoga, strongly influenced by the methods of B.K.S. Iyengar and K. Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga). Her lessons are meditative on the one hand and challenging for both body and mind on the other hand.
In a well-structured way she shows you how to energise and balance your body as well as your mind and soul. Leila gives you individual and careful support and always brings your attention back to your breathing. She focuses on a correctly aligned posture but also encourages you to replace a performance-oriented attitude by sensitivity for yourself. By training your awareness you sensitize your perception and learn to focus your mind.

Cri´s first contact with "mind over matter" was already at the age of 14 years where he was introduced to autogenic training. After that he got to know Tao Yoga which brought him closer to meditation and the connection between body, mind and soul. He went further on to Hatha Yoga where he had teacher trainings in Australia, Sri Lanka and Austria.
Classic Hatha Yoga combined with energy exercises from Qi Gong and structures of Vinyasa Flow Yoga build the basis of Cri´s Yoga classes.
Yoga is neither acrobatical gymnastics nor a self fulfillment program for the upper class - it is a way to your self.
