Yoga Styles at the Brussels Yoga Loft
An important guideline for our yoga styles classes is the Ashtanga Vinyasa sequence designed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India to open the body and awaken the spirit. The focus is on synchronization of breath with continuous flow of movement and supported or strengthened by the bandhas. A vigorous practice that builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. Empower yourself and gain mental clarity while enhancing core strength and flexibility.
Ashtanga First Series (short)
The Modified Primary Series is based on the Full Primary Series designed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and made accessible to all. The class begins with sun salutations, standing poses and balancing asanas, and finishes with seated forward-folds, twists, backbends and inversions. The primary focus is physical cleansing, synchronization of breath and movement. This class is open to practitioners of all levels and offers also easy to learn modifications depending on the level of the individual.
Full Primary Series
Experience the full primary series sequence of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, offering further asanas to enhance and round out the Primary Series practice. This class is not recommended for those with little or no yoga experience. This is one of the fast paced yoga styles that includes arm balancing, back bends, and inversions and builds endurance and breath. Modifications are possible for all poses.
Yin Yoga is a great compliment to Ashtanga. It directs the stimulation deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues and targets connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones and joints with the aim of increasing circulation and improving flexibility. Moreover,Yin works deeper muscles that you normally do not exercise much in a more active style practice. Everyone is welcome!
