welcome to yoga gestalten
'Gestalt' in German means figure or form, and 'gestalten' means to shape or create something. So yoga gestalten stands for working with our bodies through yoga.
Everything we experience in life leaves an imprint on our bodies, which may manifest as tension, stress or other psychosomatic conditions. Through yoga we can reverse the process and by freeing physical tension free the mind and emotions.
For me, yoga is a never-ending exploration of the body and mind, and a way of discovering the beauty of life. As we bring the awareness to what is happening inside and where we are in the present moment, the body is encouraged to release where it is holding. That way it can start to work deeper and move more freely into yoga postures. Yoga is not about pushing and pulling but about connecting with the breath and allowing to let go, to let be. Then we can embark on a journey of restoration and transformation.
"Why are we doing yoga? ...No motivation, no aims, only an agreeable appointment for the body to look forward to. We do it for the fun of it..."
