YOGA BODY CHECK

Often just little adjustments can lead to greater quality of life. Workshops focussing on the shoulders, back and hips show you how to systematically improve your flexibility in the yoga class. A test of the muscles and a posture analysis give the motivation you need to make a change. Yoga offers a broad range of methods for strengthening the nervous and cardiovascular systems: from deep relaxation to resistance training by holding the asana postures. The yogic breathing exercises help you to increase your vital energy. Yogic techniques for organ cleansing (Kriyas) make it easier to detox the body. Guidance in dietary questions.
