Skillful transformation and loving acceptance

I teach Flow, Vinyasa, Fascia Yoga, Restorative and Yin Yoga. My full schedule is at the bottom of this page.

Or if you prefer to practice when and where suits you, you can subscribe to my Journey Into profile, for long and short practices in all the styles I offer.

For me yoga is awareness of the self in the world, as well as the ability in the moment to act compassionately and skillfully towards oneself and others.

This concretely means a combination of embodied anatomy, self-inquiry, and of course movement/shapes led by the breath to allow the whole body to stretch, strengthen, mobilise and gain mobility, affecting all body parts and systems. Simultaneously, it develops focus and brings attention to what you sense/feel/think do in the moment and how you relate to it.

In this way you realise how you are and what you need, and can build unity between body, mind and emotions, from which to find balance on your terms.

Vinyasa A+ (PAUSED FOR LOCKDOWN)

https://widget.fitogram.pro/yellow-yoga/?w=/list-view
A dynamic yoga class in the Vinyasa Style, with slower and mindful movements and variations, for beginners with some experience, or those wanting a simpler practice. Occasionally we stay longer in poses to let them work deeper or bring small movements in to work holistically at creating space. It's all like a dance, from shape to shape, that stengthens and refines muscles, especially the deeper musculature, that keeps the fascia elastic and that is fun. For those who want to find the balance between strength and flexibility, with a dose of grace thrown in.

This is a slow vinyasa to give you time to feel the body, stretch and play with it according to how you are doing that morning. It will leave you awake, rooted and present. And because the class uses movement as a way to dive into yogic philosophy, through the medium of sensation, exploration and play, you will also integrate lessons for life on and off the mat. The class is based on a theme and base movement sequence that evolve through the practice to deepen your understanding of your body, and a chance to explore what the theme means to you. It incorporates spiral and circular motions, waves and bounces into a traditional asana practice. Structured around a specific body part, movement type or quality, it is based on gentle warm ups, and a set sequence mixing vinyasa, fascia yoga and feldenkrais. The sequence is repeated to find a flow state, and at given points gives each person the chance to find the unique way their body wants to move from there. I offer students inspiration, but encourage individuals to find a way to move that feels good and supportive to them on that day.
We offer a sliding scale of drop-in and memberships prices, as well as class packs. Prices can be found through the Graceful movement Fitogram profile.

Fascia + Yin (EN/DE) ---- LIVESTREAM for Graceful movement collective

Saturday, 10:0011:00 (60 min)

This class can be taught bilingually, German/English. The class combines soft repetitive stretch, rolling movements with yin poses, and often also a focus on easing the breath. This combination helps us regain smoothness and ease in the connective tissues (the fascia specifically). It is also the bridge to rebuilding a sense of our body and to develop interoception (the sense of how and what we feel inside), and with that to become more present and better able to care for ourselves, as well as to calm down the nervous system. The class is accessible to all levels and body types, and you are encouraged to modify movements and poses based on how they feel.
You can either pay me directly via paypal.me/valerieHeartwitch (9 - 10 - 12€ for drops ins or 90€ for a 10 class pack) or to pay the Graceful movement collective which also offers a sliding scale for drop ins and for monthly memberships (see the Fitogram link for details)
