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 his own level and pace.
About our yoga teacher
Barbara van der Meer 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. Barbara 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:
Vinyasa is a flowing type of yoga in which all movements are linked to one and other. Every class can be different. Barbara likes to work with themes and often focusses classes on a specific
muscle group or part of the body. Vinyasa yoga helps to build muscles that are strong and flexible at the same time.
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.
