CLASSES

I teach Vinyasa (fast-paced, fluid – 1 breath, 1 movement) yoga in private sessions to all levels from beginners to advanced. Classes can be 30, 60 or 90 min long (you decide) and include: a theme supported by yogic texts, a short meditation, asanas (poses) practice and some pranayama (breathing exercises).

Yoga is for everybody and as a teacher my mission is also to make yoga available to everybody. My intention is to provide a safe, judgement-free space and practice for my students. In my classes everyone is and will always be welcome regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, political opinions or health status. I feel grateful and honored to guide and help anyone on their own yoga journey.

Classes are given 1:1 in the Amsterdam area. Please note that I don’t welcome students at my place. Classes can also be given online on Zoom.

I create personalized classes , based on your physical abilities and limitations and according to what you wish to practice. We will discuss this prior to our first class. Each class has a theme and focus.

I offer classes in English or French.

All classes can be requested via the book a class form and are donation based.

What to expect:

All my classes are influenced by my own practice. I teach what I practice myself.

We start with an intention setting and centering practice followed by asanas (poses). I will teach you a variety of asanas: standing postures, balances, backbends, inversions, arm balances, twists… We finish the class with a cool down and relaxing Savasana (laying meditation). We will also practice some breathing exercises, I will help you use your breath to move. I like to use yogic texts, quotes, poems and music during our practice.

Useful information FOR ONLINE CLASSES:

  1. Download Zoom (zoom.us) preferably on your desktop and login with the meeting ID and password. The credentials will be sent to you prior to the class.
  2. Set up your practice space in advance: Have a yoga or fitness mat ready and some space to practice. I encourage you to use props such as blocks, cushions or straps. I will always inform you about which props are needed prior to the class. If you have sensitive knees it might be useful to have an extra blanket available as well.
  3. If you have questions please send me an email at hello@melyalicia.yoga
