Yoga and climbing share many aspects.
Practicing yoga improves your breathing, concentration, flexibility, balance and strength. You develop a deep physical and mental awareness.
I teach these classes with a double dose of passion.
Climbing and yoga do not go seperate for me.
I have been climbing for 8 years, and doing yoga for about double the time. However now I cannot imagine the one without the other.
These classes provide a space to experience and explore your body ‘on the floor’ and in turn provides you with tools and insights that you can take with you on the wall.
The classes consist of one part breathing, one part self-practice and one part 'play time'.
We dedicate a moment of the class to breathing not only to center our minds but to tonify our breathing organs, which we also use during climbing. As you might know, your quality of climbing, depends on the quality of your breath which in turn influences the quality of your concentration. It is all interconnected!
Self-practice means that you learn a sequence of excercises step by step, that over time, you are able to do independently. The advantage of this, is that you do not need a class or a teacher to practice yoga, and you can integrate this into your climbing training.
Play time is a moment during class that we come together as a group and explore new movements and techniques. These may vary during each class.

Good to Know:
- Please bring your own yoga mat. There are a minimum amount of mats available.
- When you embark on a yoga self practice, it is recommended to commit to at least 3 days of practice per week. Even if it means 15-20 minutes per day. Therefore, permit yourself at least one day a week of home practice. This is a wonderful opportunity to integrate what you learn/experience in class, to establish your home practice time and space and helps to develop discipline and consistency, all which will allow you to really experience the great benefits of yoga practice.
- Should you have any injuries or sensitivities in your body, please inform the teacher at the beginning of your practice.
- During your menstrual cycle (ladies holiday), it is highly recommended to rest from physical yoga practice on the heaviest days (1st to third day) You are free to take rest on this day, or come to class and do a more restorative/meditative practice.
- I will be available by phone and email, should you need extra support or advice in your practice.
- Please note, yoga is not a substitute for medical or psychological treatment or therapy. If you have any (recent) trauma, injuries, chronic pain or disease please contact me directly to discuss if yoga can be an additional tool towards your healing.
