In this class we focus on the fundamental aspects of yoga, including asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. We explore yoga with clear, precise instructions so you can see and feel what is happening in your body. Yoga Basics classes are designed for all students that want to understand the basic foundation of yoga and build confidence towards a healthy, safe yoga practice. They are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced students.
Yoga for all levels
All Level classes focus on balancing and stabilizing. They continue to focus on the basics of yoga while creative sequences introduce new poses. All poses are taught in a manner that invites students to deepen their understanding of physical alignment while beginning to blend the postures into fluid sequences that are synchronized with the rhythm of the breath.
Yin Yoga for all levels
Focused on opening the body and soothing the mind, Yin Yoga is a meditative style of yoga that creates space and flexibility through gentle, long-held poses and the use of props. The poses are well-supported and performed mostly seated or laying down as part of a slow sequence. Suitable for just about everyone, Yin Yoga great for both beginners and experienced yogis as it offers something different for everyone and is very accessible and relaxing.
Sunday Yoga flow for all levels
Enjoy a yoga class to finish your weekend with a gentle Hatha flow sequence to cultivate mindfulness throughout the practice, and ride the wave of the breath to align body and mind. All levels are welcome.
Early Bird for all levels
Enjoy a dynamic yet gentle Hatha flow inspired class to boost your energy for an amazing day, mostly based on a series of vitalizing sun salutations. Transform the way you begin your week!
Restorative Yoga for everyone
The term restorative yoga comes from "to restore", meaning to come back to a former, original or normal condition. Enjoy a deep state of relaxation by completely supporting the body in propped-up asanas, or postures. This allows to rest and surrender completely, to gently release and embrace what is and allowing prana or vital life energy to flow and to establish an access to intuition and inner peace. Winding down for 90 min with passive, earthy, restorative poses - an ideal practice after a strenuously week and for anyone who wants to work deeply without force.
Single out your individual needs with Angela. Privates are a great way to focus on your personal goals and get one-on-one attention
and instructions – all based on your unique health, body type, lifestyle, time and
calendar. Angela is fluent in English, French, Portuguese and, of course Swiss German.
Among other good reasons, private classes particularly make sense:
Are all classes taught in English?
Yes. Unless otherwise indicated on the schedule. However, if all of the attending students speak German, depending on the instructor, classes might be held in German. Feel free to ask which classes are most suitable, if you feel your English is not good enough.
What styles do you teach at Younion Yoga?
The more active yoga classes are a mixture of Hatha and Vinyasa flow, the passive yoga styles are either Yin or Restorative Yoga.
Do you offer classes for beginners?
Yes. Yoga Basics classes are in particular for beginners. We want everyone to learn yoga and use it as a way to improve the quality of your life. We also periodically hold workshops that are designed to help beginners step confidently into a yoga studio. Please check the specials tab for workshops.
I am pregnant. Can I still join your classes?
In any case: please inform your teacher about the pregnancy. If you have practiced yoga before, are feeling healthy and have no physical limitations or injuries, you may join any class. Since you are experienced, we assume, you are able to listen to your body and stick to what feels good. If you have little experience with yoga, we recommend a beginners class.
I have an injury. Can I still practice yoga?
If you have an injury or condition that could affect your practice, please inform the teacher before class, so they can recommend suitable modifications. Depending on your injury or if you are recovering from an accident, private classes could be a good alternative since they focuses on your personal needs.
