CLASSES

I teach Vinyasa (fast-paced, fluid – 1 breath, 1 movement) yoga in private sessions to all levels from beginners to advanced. Hatha classes (slower-paced, traditional) are also possible upon request. All classes are 30 min or 1h long (you decide) and include meditation/centering, asanas (poses) practice and 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. I feel grateful and honored to guide and help anyone their own yoga journey.

Classes are given 1:1 in the Amsterdam area, either at your place or outdoors. Unfortunately I can’t welcome you at my place. Classes can also be given online on Zoom. In addition I organize occasional outdoor group classes and advertised them in advance via this website and my personal Instagram.

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

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 a centering practice and gentle warm up. We continue with sun salutations and some flows mixing a variety of asanas: standing postures, balances, backbends, inversions, arm balances, twists… We will finish 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 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

NOTES

If you’re a new student, I will offer you to meet in a public space to discuss your motivations, needs and wants but also to see if I can meet them.
