    Yvonne Teuben
    had 16 jaar geleden zeer ernstige RSI klachten en kwam toevallig met Critical Alignment Yoga in contact. “Al na drie weken yoga waren mijn klachten zoveel minder geworden dat het als een soort wonder voelde.” Geïntrigeerd door deze yogavorm volgde zij de meerjarige opleiding tot Critical alignment docent bij Gert van Leeuwen om daarna ook de aanvullende therapi- opleiding te doen. Zij werkt voor diverse yogascholen en zorgt ervoor dat ze zelf zeker twee yogalessen in de week volgt.

    Loviisa Mellin
    beoefent onder andere Astanga Vinyasa yoga en Iyengar yoga. In 2009 kwam ze bij Gert van Leeuwen terecht voor Critical alignment yoga, en ze is nooit meer vertrokken.

    Hatha Yoga

    Hatha yoga is the basis of all physical forms of yoga.  The postures (asanas) will be experienced one by one, alternating between effort and relaxation. The mental component is as important as the physical posture and breathing. You will learn to do thing with acceptance and patience, without pressure.

    Yin yoga

    Yin yoga is the counterpart of Asthanga and Vinyasa yoga. With Yin yoga everything happens slowly and calmly, with time for your body and you feeling ‘in the moment’. Most postures are in seated or lying position, and will be held for 3 to 5 minutes. This affects your tissue, the more rigid area of your muscles and tendons around your joints.

    Slow flow yoga

    Slow flow yoga comes from the same family as Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, but is not as quick. It’s a soft and flowing yoga form, in which you will be taken from posture to another in a natural way. Because of the slow rythm, you will have more focus on feeling ‘in the moment’.
