Yoga at Thrive

The yoga philosophy originated in India over 3,000 years ago and was originally intended to unite the body and mind through meditation. In modern times, yoga has branched out into many modern forms, focusing on physical postures, movement, conscious breathing and relaxation. 

Thrive opts for authentic yoga whereby every class focuses on these aspects, but where meditation and the yoga philosophy also play an important role. The classes are active and strenuous, yet deeply relaxing and accessible to all levels. Each class is a unique experience and is guided by an anatomical week focus and a monthly theme from the philosophy of yoga. In the yoga classes we work in small groups, so that there is plenty of room for personal attention for everyone's experience and areas of interest.

Welke yogastijl past het beste bij jou op dit moment? Hieronder vind je meer informatie over de specifieke yogastijlen die Thrive aanbiedt.
Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is a flowing, dynamic form of yoga in which postures alternate with the rhythm of the breath. The constant focus on breath and movement brings your attention to the here and now. Recurring elements from the sun salutations are used to connect the postures. The emphasis is on increasing (inner) strength, concentration and endurance. A Vinyasa Yoga class has fixed components. A warming up with sun salutations, standing and ground poses, meditation and a final relaxation.

Yin Yoga

The Yin Yoga classes at Thrive are based on Paul Grilley's teaching methodology. This form of yoga is relaxing and healing. In deep physical stretches, mainly grounding postures, the muscles remain relaxed to reach the fascia layers of the body. The postures are held for a longer period of time (3-7 minutes), which makes the connective tissue and joints supple (again). If you don't feel like an active flow or if you are rehabilitating for example, Yin Yoga is a good choice.

Yin Yang Yoga

Yang is everything that is dynamic. Constantly changing, visible, warm and strong. Yin is everything that is static. Silent, hidden, cold and soft. One does not exist without the other. In our Yin Yang classes we combine the powerful physical aspect of Vinyasa Yoga with the silence of Yin Yoga. The class can start with calm Yin postures and then become more active, or start with Yang sun salutations and end with calm Yin Yoga postures. It results in a nice balance between Yin and Yang.

Hatha Yoga (aroma therapy)

Hatha Yoga is a quiet, classical form of yoga. While we stand in the postures for a long time, the yoga teacher shares instructions on physical aspects of the poses and insights from yoga philosophy. The focus in Hatha Yoga is on alignment and awareness. Hatha Yoga is the starting point for learning and developing yoga postures. At Thrive Yoga you can also opt for Hatha Aroma Therapy. This is a special class where the life force of essential oils is added to the practice. Surrounded by the wonderful fragrances of herbs and flowers, you can relax completely. These classes are generally a little softer than the regular Hatha classes.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, literally means 'sleep of the yogis'. An accessible class to completely relax physically, mentally and emotionally. In Yoga Nidra, we rest in a state between sleeping and waking. Savasana is the only posture we assume during a Yoga Nidra class . Yoga Nidra has a deeply relaxing effect on body and mind. It has the same effect as 3 to 4 hours of sleep. You need no yoga experience for this class.

Aerial Yoga

At our yoga studio on Zeeburg you can also choose for Aerial Yoga. Yoga in the air. This form of yoga is a fusion of aerial acrobatics and Hatha Yoga. A long loop of special cloth hanging from the ceiling supports you during standing postures, balance, forward bends and hip openers. Fear of inversions (e.g. headstand and handstand) can be overcome with the help of the cloth. Strength from your core, flexibility, alignment and balance are further developed. More information about this unique yoga form can be found here.

Other Vinyasa Yoga Styles

A special Vinyasa form on Thrive Yoga's schedule is ' Jivamukti Yoga'. This yoga form offers a powerful flow. Jivamukti originated in New York and was developed by Sharon Gannon and David Life. The classes are especially suitable if you already have some experience with (vinyasa) yoga and are interested in a physically strenuous class with ample attention to the philosophies of yoga. More information about this yoga form can be found here.

You will also find 'Vinyasa Gentle Flow classes on schedule. Here the pace is slower than in a regular Vinyasa Yoga class and there is more attention to detail. This makes it a suitable form for beginners in Vinyasa Yoga and if you feel like a softer movement in a calmer tempo.

Levels

Yoga classes at Thrive Yoga are open to all levels, unless otherwise indicated. Please note that the Vinyasa and Jivamukti yoga classes are tough if you are just starting out because of the pace of successive postures.

We recommend Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga or Gentle Flow Vinyasa as your first yoga class. Always let the yoga teacher know that you are new. We will then keep an extra eye on you. Our yoga teachers adapt the yoga classes to the composition of the group. Do you have any questions? Feel free to call or e-mail us for personal advice. Do you have suggestions on how we can improve our yoga offer? Please let us know!

Thrive works with more than fifty committed and experienced yoga and Pilates teachers. All our teachers have an accredited training and several years of experience in teaching. Together they form the core of Thrive Yoga and they love to share their passion for yoga or pilates.
