For more than 15 years I have taught Yoga according to B.K.S. Iyengar© and was able to witness the wonderful effects bodywork can have on coping with stress and increasing wellness. People practising hatha yoga often report their experience of greater joy, not to mention of vitality and resilience. Increasingly, medical research supports these more subjective experiences.

The method: Hatha Yoga according to B.K.S. Iyengar© offers an approach to both strengthen and mobilize the body by way of systematically composed, progressive series of exericises and precise instructions on each posture (so-called 'asanas'). Regular practice leads to a vibrant awareness of the body. This, then, will help you to detect — and counteract — the beginnings of stress. More than that: you will experience increased mental balance and joy in life.

People are never too old to take up yoga. Even if you may feel stiff and heavy now, you will soon notice the beneficial effects of this practice.

In my courses, I tend to complement yoga practice with some meditation. This, too, helps develop an appropriate approach to yoga practice as well as an emotionally positive attitude. You can then work according to your personal capacities.

In this way, beginners as well as more experienced students receive plenty opportunity to open to the ever new experience and enjoyment of its unpredictable effects. Thus, every exericise will be new and fresh.

After a series of yoga postures, most sessions will end with a guided exercise of deep relaxation, called 'shavasana'. As a culmination of the series of 'asanas' leading up to it, this will refresh body and mind on a very deep level indeed ... and prepare you re-emerge into the world and everyday life with body and mind being quiet, yet vibrantly alive.
