Yoga styles

Explore and learn

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 mediation. 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.

Yoga Style - Astanga Led

Astanga Led

In the Astanga Yoga Led class the teacher leads the class through a part of the Primary Series of the Astanga Vinyasa Yoga system – attentively, slowly and with focus. The breath connects the body with the deepest part of the mind – the soul. Breath is the soul of Astanga.

Yoga Style - Astanga Mysore

Astanga Mysore

Mysore Style is the traditional way to learn the Astanga practice as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois, in Mysore. The class is not “led” as a whole but rather each student receives a personalized guidance from the teacher, so that the practice is learnt slowly and progressively, virtually one posture at a time, while committing the sequence to memory.

Yoga Style - Hatha

Hatha

In Hatha Yoga classes the emphasis lies on strengthening and loosening up the body and increasing concentration to stable, regular breathing. With Hatha Yoga practice your body will feel open en strong, your breathing unobstructed and your mind calm and quiet – ready for sitting meditation.

Yoga Style - Vinyasa

Vinyasa

Vinyasa Yoga is a vigorous class consisting of asana practice to strenghten body and mind. Vinyasa means ‘connection of movement and breath’. Through a creative series of asanas the teacher prepares you for more challenging poses.

Yoga Style - Yin

Yin

Yin Yoga combines aspects of Hatha Yoga, the concept of the meridians in Chinese medicine, Taoist philosophy and Buddhist meditation techniques. Yin Yoga has a positive effect on your organs, immune system, muscles and joints.
