What is Yoga?


There are many definitions of Yoga. Philosophically we find many interpretations of old texts and Gurus. Literally the word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root "Yuj" that means "to join" "to unite".

Nevertheless one thing is for sure. To practice Yoga is not just to practice Asanas. Yoga allows us to transcend the physical body in order to understand and learn about our minds, our emotions, values and everything that defines us. Not only at an intrapersonal but also at an interpersonal level.

Vinyasa Yoga with Mark (in Englisch)

Yoga Leipzig

Vinyasa is a Sanskrit name composed of the terms "Vi", which refers to the positioning of the body in a particular context, and "Nyasa", which is one of the meditative states that promote concentration on a point and subsequent "liberation". Vinyasa yoga thus focuses on movement and transitions.

Hatha Yoga with Jeannine (in German)

Yoga Leipzig

Hatha Yoga is one of the most famous and traditional styles. One interpretation of its meaning links the concept of sun with "Ha" and moon with "tha". According to this, the practice aims to balance our most powerful, fiery body level with the softer, watery, emotional level.

Yin Yoga with Rebecca (in German)

Yoga leipzig

Yin Yoga is a softer, slower style of Yoga where each asana is held passively and for a longer period of time.
According to taoism (rooted in Chinese philosophy) everything in the universe has a yin and a yang component: yin being everything that is stable, passive and slow and yang involving changing, active and moving aspects.
In Yin Yoga you can expect to let go of tensions and give time and space to each asana to truly engage in a relaxing journey for your body and your mind.

Shakti Yoga Flow with Rebecca (in German)

Yoga Leipzig

Shakti describes the divine power of femininity in all beings, thus this yoga style is definitely not only for female. It flows: we want to get out of the mind, into the body. Sometimes faster, sometimes slower - always intuitive and the way it feels good for you. Elements from both Vinyasa yoga and Hatha yoga come into play. In combination with music (from melodic techno to wonderful mantras) you come more to yourself, more into the now, through the movement of your body. Breathing, meditation and the final relaxation (Savasana) will not be neglected.

Visit Rebecca's classes every Friday 17:30 - 18:45

Yoga und Meditation mit Ingrid

Yoga Leipzig

Asking the mind to stop thinking is like asking the heart to stop beating. Through yoga and mediation, we learn how the body works in conjunction with the mind. And the other way around.
