Small classes (max. 12 students) allow for this individual attention.
Sabine´s teachings reflect the ISHTA philosophy to tailor the yoga practice to the individual rather than fitting the individual to the practice. Instead of aiming for the "perfect posture", poses are selected, sequenced, and modified to suit individual abilities, needs, and goals and accommodate different and changing levels of strength, flexibility as well as personal histories of stress, injury etc.
Sabine's style is profound and challenging for body, mind and soul. She combines vinyasa (flowing with breath) and holding asanas (postures) to build strength and flexibility with pranayama (breathing techniques), visualization, and meditation.
The science of Ayurveda, the traditional system of health and longevity, is the backbone of Sabine's teachings. Ayurvedic wisdom inspires the class sequence in order to restore the student's prakriti (individual inherent state of homeostasis). As part of the Ayurvedic science, Marma - balancing the flow of prana or subtle (electromagnetic) energy by applying pressure on specific vital pionts in the physical body - is also integral to Sabine's classes.
ISHTA has a two-fold meaning: In Sanskrit, the word Ishta means "personalized", or "individualized" or - in the rich connotations of the Sanskrit language: "that which resontes with the individual being". Recognizing the uniqueness of the individual, ISHTA yoga helps you to find your own unique practice that will best fit your individual needs and development.
ISHTA is also an acronym for Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda. Hatha is the physical practice of asana, or yoga postures, Tantra is the yogic philosophy acknowledging our inherent perfection, while Ayurveda emcompasses the Indian science of healing.
Yogiraj Alan Finger and his father Mani Finger, who had been initiated into yoga by Yogananda, created ISHTA yoga, blending the ancient and contemporary sciences of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda to give each student an understanding of how to incorporate aspects and tools from various yoga styles and practices in a way that best suits their individual paths.
