Yoga basic in the fitness program

At USC Body & Mind we have an extensive yoga program, with numerous styles of yoga. Do you work out at ClubWest, Universum, ASC or Amstelcampus? Then you can join the yoga basic classes, which you can do with a regular fitness membership!

The various yoga styles at USC

Ashtanga yoga

Ashtanga yoga is about discovering and developing your life’s strength (prana), physically, spiritually and emotionally. Ashtanga yoga is an intense form of yoga where asanas (yoga postures) are continously connected in an energetic flow.

Critical alignment yoga

Critical alignment is a modern method, developed by Gert van Leeuwen. With the help of several ‘tools’ we help you align your body. Joints and vertebrae become more mobile, muscles more powerful, the mind more free.

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is the basis of all physical forms of yoga.  The postures (asanas) will be experienced one by one, alternating between effort and relaxation. The mental component is as important as the physical posture and breathing. You will learn to do thing with acceptance and patience, without pressure.

Mindful yoga

Mindful yoga works with gentle yoga postures (asanas), body scans and short meditations. You practise to be attentive, with kindness for your body, breath, thoughts and feelings. In this way, you learn to remain in the here and now.

Restorative yoga

In this class props, like blocks and bolsters, will be used to support you in the postures. The intention of this class is to give the nervous system deep rest and to trigger the self healing system in your body. You hold the poses for 5 to 20 minutes. In the poses you are not aiming to stretch or strengthen the body, but you are looking for effortlessness and deep relaxation for body and mind.

Vinyasa flow yoga

Vinyasa flow yoga is a physically challenging form of yoga, in which static body postures are fluently alternated on the rhythm of your respiration. It similar to Ashtanga yoga, but there is less emphasis on the spiritual component and there is no fixed sequence of postures.

Yin yoga

Yin yoga is the counterpart of Asthanga and Vinyasa yoga. With Yin yoga everything happens slowly and calmly, with time for your body and you feeling ‘in the moment’. Most postures are in seated or lying position, and will be held for 3 to 5 minutes. This affects your tissue, the more rigid area of your muscles and tendons around your joints.

Yin yang yoga

In this form of yoga dynamical postures (Yang) are alternated with static postures (Yin). The Yang part of this yoga form focuses on the strength and flexibility of your muscles; the Yin part more on the connective tissue of joints and your organs.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra literally means ‘yoga sleep’ and you practice it lying on your back. It’s a method that leads you to a deep physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Yoga Nidra can help you sleep better, is contributive for your concentration, and improves your creativity and immune system.
