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.

Led class
During this Ashtanga class you follow the tempo and level of the teacher, who goes through the Ashtanga series with the whole group. This class is indicated on the schedule as ‘Ashtanga yoga’.

In a Mysore class you work through the fixed Ashtanga series on your own level. The teacher is there for support, so you can grow in your own pace. Traditionally, Ashtanga is practiced in this form of self practice. You can find this class on the schedule as ‘Ashtanga yoga – Mysore’.

Ayurvedic yoga

Ayurveda is a holistic wellness system developed thousands of years ago in India. Ayur translates to “life” and veda to “knowledge”. It is the science of how to restore and maintain health in everyday life.
In Ayurvedic Yoga, two sciences come together (Ayurveda and Yoga), allowing you to find your balance and thereby support a long and healthy life.

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.

Rocket yoga

Rocket yoga is a dynamic and uplifting style of yoga, with an emphasis on curiosity and challenge – the so-called Rocket ‘gets you there faster’! Rocket classes involve lots of opportunities to get stronger, and to play with arm balances and inversions. But going upside down is always optional – there is an equally strong emphasis on the Ashtanga fundamentals (pranayama, bandha & dristhi), and a cultivation of focus and mind-body connection.

Vinyasa 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.

Vinyasa core flow

Core Flow is an (even) more dynamic form of Vinyasa, and focuses on strengthening your core (your abs, back muscles, glutes and pelvic floor muscles). During a Vinyasa Core Flow class, you flow from one asana (pose) to the next, building core strength and endurance.

Vinyasa gentle flow

Gentle Flow is a Vinyasa class, with flowing movements but at a slower pace. This allows you to focus more on your breathing and warming up your muscles and is ideally suited for deep relaxation.

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 dance flow

Yoga dance flow is a combination of yoga and dance. Just like in Vinyasa yoga, Yoga dance flow is composed of flows. But with Yoga dance flow you also apply some dance choreography, which you learn during class. Yoga dance flow is a creative and playful way to work on your flexibility and build your stamina.

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.
