I am new to yoga, what classes are suitable for me?

  • Vinyasa Joy & Freedom: Back to Basics is our best class for beginners.  Class sizes tend to be smaller so you will get more personal attention.  Classes move at a slower pace and poses are explained in greater detail so you can start off your yoga journey feeling safe and confident. 
  • Deep Stretch Yin, Gravity® Yoga, Restorative Yoga, & Deep Stretch Flow- are also great yoga classes for beginners  as they are on the gentler side and move at a slower pace.   
  • Private 1 on 1 classes are a great way to begin your yoga journey.  Private yoga sessions will offer customized instruction tailored to your body and are particularly helpful if you have a history of injuries. Please fill out or private yoga inquiry form to schedule your session or learn more.     
  • For more detailed recommendations be sure to checkout our class suggestions page.

Do you offer specials for new students?

Yes!  As a new student, you can try your First 21 Days of Unlimited Yoga for only 50€.  This is a great way to try out vinyasa yoga and experience different classes.   After your intro month, if you’d like to continue with unlimited yoga, we’ve got your covered with our our Flexible Membership. 

What should I bring to yoga class?

I suggest you bring a yoga mat, a hair elastic, and some water with you.
Some people like to bring towels.  

Do you offer a referral program if I tell my friends and colleagues about the yoga studio?

  • Yes!  If you refer a friend to the studio and they sign up for our Flexible Yoga Membership, I will add a 50€ credit to your account! Make sure they drop your name when they come in.
  • Want to practice yoga with your work colleagues?  Connect us with your office manager or HR/Benefits team to get the conversation started.
Online or in person one to one sessions, in Geneva and Messery or via Zoom, at a time that suits you

Personal attention to focus on a tailored plan, or a specific issue.

A great idea if:

  • you’re just getting started
  • you have an injury/ niggle or complaint
  • you want to focus on a particular pose
  • Also, if you are a runner and want to have your running gait assessed – and a yoga plan to support your running. 

You will be sent a recording of all sessions and come away with a home-practice plan.

After paying for your session here, you will be taken to complete a short form to provide some background  information, what you would like to gain from the session, and what days and time suit you.

The practice of yoga supports physical, mental, and spiritual development that allows you to create the best version of yourself.
 
Yoga may also be an effective tool to help you lose weight, especially the more active forms of yoga. And you may find that the awareness gained through a gentle, relaxing yoga practice helps you to lose weight as well.

Yoga and calorie burning
While yoga isn’t traditionally considered an aerobic exercise, there are certain types of yoga that are more physical than others.
Active, intense styles of yoga help you burn the most calories. This may help prevent weight gain. Ashtanga, vinyasa, and power yoga are examples of more physical types of yoga. These types of yoga keep you moving almost constantly, which helps you to burn calories.
 
 
 

While restorative yoga isn’t an especially physical type of yoga, it still helps in weight loss. One study found that restorative yoga was effective in helping overweight women to lose weight, including abdominal fat.

These findings are especially promising for people whose body weight may make more vigorous forms of yoga difficult.
 

How often should you do yoga to lose weight?

Practice yoga as often as possible in order to lose weight. You can do a more active, intense practice at least three to five times per week for at least one hour.
On the other days, balance out your practice with a more relaxing, gentle class. Hatha, yin, and restorative yoga classes are great options.
 
If you’re a beginner, start slowly and gradually build up your practice. This allows you to build up your strength and flexibility and prevent injuries. If you don’t have time for a full class on certain days, do a self-practice for at least 20 minutes. Allow yourself one full day of rest each week.
