At Delight Yoga, we offer four main styles of yoga: astanga, yin, hatha and vinyasa. On the schedule you will also find styles that are derived from these main styles or that are a combination of styles.
Furthermore, we offer a few special styles: astanga mysore, prenatal, yoga basics and meditation. To familiarise yourself with the different styles and to make sure you will find a class that suits you best, please check out the style descriptions below. Delight Yoga offers yoga for different levels of experience, from beginners to advanced. All classes that are indicated as Beginner classes on the schedule, are appropriate for beginners (sounds logical, right?).
It is also possible as a beginner to take part in the classes that have a label ‘all levels’. These are classes which are not aimed at beginners because some more advanced postures will be introduced, but when you're comfortable enough you're always welcome to join. Advanced classes are best suited for yogis with more experience.
If you are not sure about what class or level to choose, you can always ask our hosts in the studios to help you pick the right one.
You can also inform about our intakes to develop a custom program together with an expert.
