If you don't speak Dutch and would like to join our classes, then all classes can be giving in English. The yoga teacher is perfectly fluently at teaching a class in English and we regularly have English speaking students in our yoga classes.
Below is a short summary of the website in English.
Hatha Yoga Studio Leeuwarden is not led by commercial interest or popular hypes. It stays true to what yoga is trying to teach us. Yoga is not meant for relaxation or impressive poses and photo's, but for the development of our mind and body.
De classes are very down to earth and informal. We work physically to improve our fitness, strength and flexibility while calming the mind at the same time. You don't need to be strong or flexible to join, you don't need to be 'good' at yoga. In fact, not being strong or flexible is a good reason to start working on that. We never say "I'm not clean so I'm probably not good at taking a shower". So why should we then say "I'm not flexible so I'm probably not good at yoga".
Only teachers who know the traditional and authentic purpose of yoga teach here, so no sports instructors who only practice poses or teachers who have done quick teacher courses.
The studio is not driven by commercial interest and never will be.
If you want to try a class, you can do so for free.

Hatha yoga is an authentic and traditional yoga class. It's a very physical class, working on the strength, flexibility and good alignment of the body while also focusing on meditation and breathing. Hatha yoga is not a relaxation class, but we work to develop a healthier body and mind.
Everyone can join the yoga classes, you don't need to be flexible at all! In fact, yoga is ment for people who wish you develop themselves mentally and physically, not for people who want to look good in an impressive pose.
In yoga there is never a reward for being the best student or how good you are. Also it is never necessary to do every exercise given in a class. So feel free to skip any exercise you feel is too much.
All classes are given by a yoga teacher who has done years of intensive study and practice and knows the true and authentic meaning of yoga. Today many people become 'yoga teacher' because it is a big hype, many of these teachers have only done a very rudimentary training for a few months or sometimes even a few weeks or no training at all.
Being yoga teacher is not considered a job here, but a way of life. It involves constantly trying to develop yourself, both physically and mentally.
For me it is important the classes are not too big, so there is personal attention for everyone in the class.
Making income is not a reason for me to teach, but the wish to share authentic yoga with others.
You can find the studio in this location.
The entrance is at the blue building.
There are yoga mats you can use if you don't have a mat of your own.
It has a dressing room, showers and you can safely park your bicycle inside if you like.
I try to keep the prices low so the classes are accessible for everyone.
