|Yoga can produce a marked effect on your body, mind and spirit. That's why it's important for you to choose the class that fits your needs. Because every individual has his own constitution I offer several different classes. Your well-being comes first! That's why I recommend beginners to Jai Ma Yoga to take some Basic classes first to build up on a profound foundation. Classes are taught in english and/or dutch.
All classes take place at the Studio 32, Lage Markt 32 in de Benedenstad van Nijmegen, a two minutes walk to the Centrum and less than one minute away from the beautiful riverside of the Waal.
Jai Ma Yoga
All Urban Yoga classes are Jai Ma Yoga classes which integrate the Universal Principles of Alignment of Anusara Yoga. Correct alignment in yoga keeps you safe and has therapeutic value; it creates strength and wellbeing for mind, body, and soul.
In the Jai Ma Yoga classes, each student practices yoga to the extent suitable for their individual experience level. Jai Ma Yoga enables one's ability to evolve through continued practice, gradually increasing flexibility and relaxing the inner self. Most Jai Ma Yoga classes incorporate Vinyasa, a dynamic flow of yoga postures alternating with holding poses for a longer time. Classes are themed, and adjustments are made by the teacher as a supportive and friendly piece of advice, encouraging the student’s progress by development of posture. Every class is intended to support and uplift both your physical self and your spirit. “Come as you are and leave better.”
As it becomes dusk Late-night Bliss offers first a powerful Asana practice (yang-yoga style). In the second part of the class you will slow down and a serie of long and slow poses to stretch the connective tissues follows (yin-yoga style).
Morning Bliss is an energizing wake up call. You will release tension in tight areas including hamstrings, chest, back, and your mind. A perfect start for your day!
The Moonlight class is for all those who would like to cultivate balance and relaxation and go deeper by slowing down. Gentle and restorative Yoga focuses on opening and relaxing your body and renewing a healthy immune system. The precise and easy to follow lesson is accompanied by music.

Besides its strengthening and relaxing effects, prenatal Yoga is a natural and useful preparation for the birth.
