Yoga Wall - Asana Lab (semi-private, IN-STUDIO)
Tuesday, April 11, 6:30- 7:30pm
The Yoga Wall was invented by B.K.S. Iyengar to learn about the perfect alignment in Yoga poses.
In this session you will get a chance to study selected yoga poses with the help of this great yoga tool in a semi-private setting. And yes, you will have many AHHH….moments and you will fall in love with the yoga wall. A friend of mine called the class an “Asana Lab” (asana means poses)…this practice can be seen as well as the fine-tuning of yoga poses that you are familiar with. All levels class!

Restorative Yoga & 5 Elements Shiatsu Acupressure To Welcome the Spring (in-studio)
Sunday, March 26, 5:30 - 7:00pm
The theme of this event is preparing the body & mind for the spring season. This time of the year is not only the beginning of the season cycle, it is as well the time of birth, new beginnings and most importantly it is the energy of the element Wood (according to TCM – traditional Chinese medicine). In nature you can see this energy as renewing energy that is able to push the new grass through the snow and new leaves out of new branches. In the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), human’s are an integral part of nature and the continually changing world. TCM as Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine) views the world and everything in it through the five elements. Spring is as well the time of hope, a season that bursts forward with optimism, offering change after the quiet, still time of Winter. The connected organs for this season are: Liver and Gall Bladder.
Please join us for this 90 minute healing session of Restorative Yoga and hands-on Acupressure.
What to expect?
Katrin will help each student to set up for each long holding restorative yoga pose. Each pose will use yoga props such as yoga blocks, blankets and a bolster to insure you receive the maximum of relaxation in each pose. During each restorative yoga pose, Terry will work on each student lead by her strong intuition. She will work mostly gall bladder and of the liver (partner organ) accupressure points. Beside bringing balance to the whole body (Qi – Life force) and the support of your immune system, it will cleanse these particular organs. Further acupressure sessions after this healing event are recommended. Pre-registration via email: email@example.com required

Group Online Classes - How does it work? (read more)
Sunday, January 1 - Sunday, December 31, check schedule
Since March 2020, the studio offers its group yoga classes in an online format. If you are interested to join a class, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the dial-in information or for further questions. Please read the following information below.
WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU START THE ONLINE YOGA SESSION:
Before joining the class YOU need to download the Zoom Meeting App. on your device. It doesn’t need to be an apple device, however it seems that a laptop or computer (bigger screen) is better than a smart phone for the presentation of the class. If the system ask you for Meeting ID and/or Password, please use the information that was emailed to you or click on the link in the invite.
It would be good if you could join the class 5 minutes before the session starts, in case there are questions in regard of the set up, audio, adjustment of your screen, etc. Also please have your practice space prepared before the class. The following yoga props are recommended for yoga online classes at Katrin Elia Yoga: a yoga mat, 2 same size yoga blocks, 1 strap and 2 blankets. For your first class, alternatives are ok. If you don’t have yoga props and you would like to purchase some, please contact the studio via email for further information.
Costs & Payment: All the online group classes are 60 minutes long (often a bit longer). Each class costs $20 per person. If an extra person joins your session, please let me know. Venmo (using the katrin-elia account) is recommended for class payment if you are a new student. Please send the payment before the class.
