What is yoga?
The word yoga means union in Sanskrit. At MoaAlm we like to see yoga as the union between movement and breath. By synchronizing your breathing to the movements of your body you enhance your
physical endurance and you learn to better understand your own body. Yoga poses help improve your flexibility and strength. Yoga is for everyone - it doesn't matter how old, fit or flexible you
are! Our yoga classes are always tailored to individual needs so that everyone can participate at their own level and pace.
About our yoga teacher
Nelly Peters is a professional 200h RYT yoga teacher. She loves yoga because it helps her connect to her body - listening to the body and understanding what the body needs and what it is
capable of. Nelly hopes to empower her students and help them build a routine of physical exercise and relaxation in their often busy daily lives.
Types of yoga
At MoaAlm we offer two different types of yoga:
Hatha yoga is a traditional style of yoga incorporating pranayama (breathwork), meditation and asana, the physical practice of yoga as we
would recognise it in the West. Hatha yoga incorporates longer holds in individual postures, with space in between to allow for mind-body integration and returning to the
breath. The practice sometimes includes sequences such as the "Sun Salutation", which consists of several asanas performed as a fluid movement
Restorative yoga is a very relaxing, meditative kind of yoga. It requires no muscle activity whatsoever. In our restorative classes we only practice six to ten poses that we hold for a longer
period of time. Loads of props like pillows, blocks or blankets are used to support the body in it's poses. Restorative yoga is about relaxing the body completely, whilst keeping the mind crystal
clear and present.
MoaAlm yoga studio
At MoaAlm we have a beautiful yoga studio with panoramic view on the mountains. This room invites you to relax, to breath and enjoy life. Our studio is equipped with mats and props to support you
in your poses. Whenever the weather allows, we like to go outside to practice yoga.
Our yoga holidays
During most of our holiday weeks we offer yoga sessions on 5 mornings. We also offer special yoga retreats such as our Yoga
& Meditation week in summer and our Yoga & Detox Retreat in winter.
