Yoga, Zumba & Pilates - Mailing List

Info for new members:
You are welcome to join any of the classes spontaneously, also if you're a beginner!
Zumba is a fitness program that involves cardio and Latin-inspired dance. Haimo Jöhri is our instructor.
Pilates is a system of repetitive exercises performed on a yoga mat to promote strength, stability, and flexibility. Pilates exercises develop the body through muscular effort that stems from the core. Reto Fortunati teaches the classes.
Yoga comes in many varieties, the styles we teach at PSI are depending slightly on your instructor and vary between exercises from classical Ashtanga (active, long holds), Vinyasa (lots of movement, "flow") and Yin (very long, passive stretches). Usually some breathwork (pranayama) and medidation/relaxtion is done as well. The classes are taught by Nicole Hiller, Anna Nastruzzi and Micha Dehler.
Most of our yoga participants have been practicing yoga for several years already and thus our classes could feel challenging and can include rather advanced poses. Nevertheless, beginners are more than welcome to join. Do not be afraid to take extra breaks and skip the poses that you do not yet feel comfortable with.
Price: The first class is free (5 CHF directly to the teacher afterwards) and you don't need to sign up, but please let the teacher know that you are new, especially if you do not have a lot of prior yoga experience, so we can make sure that you are well taken care of.
Equipment: We do have a selection of thicker and thinner yoga mats that you can use (they are in the equipment room in the sports building), so you are not required to bring your own mat. There are also plenty of blocks and straps available that can be used for the classes.
