Flowing with the Prana via Vinyasa Yoga with Inna

Prana means life force. Ancient Sanskrit literature believe that Prana is not exactly breath but manifests itself through the breath. This is an energising, dynamic vinyasa flow yoga class, incorporating breath work for connection with mind, body and soul. This style of yoga is characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. In vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next.

The variable nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day.

This class taught by a lovely Yoga teacher, Inna, who runs regular classes in Eindhoven, will leave you buzzing happily throughout the day. This is a mixed-ability class. Suitable for both beginners and experienced Yogis.

Unblocking the Muladhara Chakra: Yoga for Opening Tight Hips and Hamstrings with Sandra

According to the Yoga philosophy, the seven chakras or energy centers comprise their model of the energetic or subtle body. Each chakra is located along the spine, starting at the base and running upwards to the crown of the head. Just like Pituitary Gland, Pineal Gland etc make up our physical body, the chakras constitute our subtle body.

The word Muladhara is a combination of two Sanskrit words.: “Mula,” which means “root” and “Adhara,” which means “support” or “base.”The seven chakras are all important and interconnected. However, the root chakra is especially important, as it is the base of our whole chakra system. It is the most instinctual of all chakras, the very basis of our survival center. Our “fight-or-flight” response is initiated here.

On an emotional level, the root chakra is associated with grounding, vitality, and stability. But on a physical level, it regulates the lower part of the body – legs, inner thighs, hips and hamstrings. So, in this class, the Yoga guru, Tara, will help you open the blockages in the Muladhara chakra thus helping you develop flexibility in your legs. Keep following the practice and eventually you will be able to slide into full splits.

The teacher, Sandra, will combine a dynamic strong Asthanga based sequence followed by yogic breathing and meditative yin style hip-opening stretches. Be ready to dive deeper inside. Beginners are welcome.

This class is extremely beneficial for runners or if you are into any physical sports.

Om & Bass draws upon the discipline of traditional yoga and combines it effortlessly with modern music. It rejuvenates your energy centres (or chakras), starting gently with ambient music and moving through various genres building up to an energetic “Drum & Bass” climax. It’s OM… and BASS.

Less common in yoga and dance workshops, Om and Bass features an incredibly good teacher, Rach. Rach is both qualified in yoga and dance, with a background in freestyle and hip-hop dance. Om & Bass encourages the participants to “feel” their way through the experience without feeling exposed or intimidated.

Yin Yoga for Stress Release and Ultimate Relaxation with Irtep Petri

Yin Yoga is one of the most relaxing and static style of Yoga that allows you to make a deep connection with your body and release hidden tension. A passive practice, Yin Yoga involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held, accessing deeper layers of fascia.

If you struggle with too many racing thoughts and crave for calm, Yin Yoga is perfect for you. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang.

Led by Yoga teacher, Irtep Petri, the founder of one of the most popular Yoga studios in Eindhoven, this class will make you feel super relaxed.

Yin-Yang Yoga to Blend the Dynamic and Stabilizing Powers Within

The concepts of Yin and Yang originate from China in the ancient Taoists texts. Yin is a feminine, passive, cooling energy. On the other hand, Yang is the masculine, dynamic, warming energy.

It is believed that Yin and Yang complement and balance each other. This class aims to combine the static nature of Yin Yoga and dynamic Vinyasa flow (bringing out the Yang) to provide you with both physical and spiritual practice.

The carefully selected postures in the class will warm the body, stretch and strengthen the muscles, lengthen the connective tissue (fascia) and encourage a balanced chi (energy) flow. The session will improve your energy and fitness while promoting relaxation and healing. What a wonderful combination! The teacher, Rach, is a talented Yoga teacher coming all the way from Oxfordshire, England, to especially teach at the festival.

Liquid Breath: Yogic Breathing with Cora

The breath is the most powerful “game changer” I know. After 8 years of daily practice, I’ve experienced the deepest dept in “the receiving breath.” In the soft, feminine part of it. The deep opening, far beyond breathing techniques. To me it is pure “magic” of the breath. A feeling of “fluidity”, which cannot be described, so come and experience with Cora Verkuilen who has been practising Yoga for over a decade.

Most respiratory movements emphasize on masculine aspects such as boosting yourself, manifesting, strengthening your body, empowering your physical body and health. So cool and important. Next level breathing is experiencing the Liquid Breath. Here you will discover the subtlety of the breath. Far beyond techniques. Far beyond DOING, entering your I-AM presence, in your essence.

Eye Contact Experiment

Hosted by Popup Yoga Eindhoven
Location: Stall Area in Entresol D| Time: 3-5pm

Pop Up Yoga Eindhoven participate since 2015 in the international ‘World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment’. Last year 183 cities in 113 countries participated, with more than 200,000 participants. The Eye Contact Experiment takes place during the International Peace Week in September. The idea of ​​the global project is that people look at each other uninterrupted for a minute.

The idea

Where has the human connection gone? How often do we look someone straight in the eyes for one minute or more? What happens when we try?

The intention of this social experiment is to have eye contact in silence, without speaking. Because we all want to be seen for who we truly are. Drop your guards, your expectations about who you are, who you want to be and how others perceive you. It’s incredible what can happen, if you just open your eyes. Let’s share a minute eye contact with strangers in public to rebuild our sense of shared humanity!
