  • Opening meditation with Sevinc
    Image: Unisport Jena

    Meditation can have many forms. In this meditation we want to arrive, just be there, in the place, in the moment, with everything that is. Perceive, feel, breathe.

  • Power Vinyasa Flow with Vlad
    Image: Tobias Findeis

    After the meditation, the following session will bring some dynamism and variety. This hour will start with the sun salutations, then move into various standing and sitting sequences and end with deep relaxation. All are welcome - beginners as well as the more advanced.

  • Yoga Dance Flow with Mandy

    Yoga Dance Flow combines breathing, movement and music. The movements are choreographed. The atmospheric music is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

  • Warrior Workshop with Florence
    Image: Florence

    Warrior I, II and III, Peaceful and Humble Warrior. You may know many of these asanas or will get to know them at the latest at the warrior workshop with me. We will look at the physically correct execution as well as the different modifications you can do depending on your level and constitution. Besides the effect of the asanas on the body and mind, you will also learn more about the history of the warrior. In addition, we will also look at the different ways you can modify each warrior depending on the thematic focus.

  • Twisting/ Twist and Shine Flow with Marleen

    Twists are true all-rounders. They strengthen the abdominal and back muscles, release tension and blockages, stimulate digestion and bring you peace and clarity.

  • Yin & Sound with Mona & Milena

    In Yin Yoga, positions are mainly held in a sitting or lying position for an extended period of time to work on our fasciae and meridians. The calm and meditative Yin practice meets in this workshop with therapeutic sound instruments such as singing bowls, gong & Koshis. Like gentle touches, you can experience the sounds in the yin postures and find relaxation, clarity and regeneration through this interplay.


  • Slow Hatha Flow with Florence
    Image: Florence

    Sometimes gently flowing, sometimes powerfully grounding: in Slow Hatha Flow you can get in touch with yourself through the connection between body and breath. Free of performance thoughts, you can determine your own level thanks to the variations offered here and thus strengthen your awareness of your body.

    In addition to asanas, the class is complemented by stress-reducing pranayama and a short meditation, which you can also incorporate into your everyday life at any time. So you can also take a bit of this practice home with you.

  • Laugh Yoga with Lukas
    Image: Unisport Jena

    Do you want to get to know a completely different kind of yoga? Then come to Laughter Yoga and let yourself be fascinated by a unique method! Here there is pure joy, fun and laughter!

  • Pranayama with Vlad
    Image: Tobias Findeis

    This workshop is about breathing in yoga. Different breathing techniques (such as abdominal breathing or alternate breathing) will be practiced, with variations for beginners and advanced students. Participants will discover how certain breathing exercises affect them.

  • Front Splits with Irena (English)

    In the front splits workshop (alternativ "Hanumanasana Workshop") by Irena we will both strengthen and stretch the muscles to increase body awareness for the front splits, known in Yoga as the Hanumanasana. Complementary to traditional passive stretch we will use facilitated stretch and isometric engagement techniques. The goal of the workshop is to learn a biomechanically reasonable alignment as well as techniques to progress safely towards the front splits from any starting point. The workshop takes place in English but the important parts will be explained in German as well! (Make sure you are well warmed up for the Hanumanasana Workshop.)

  • Acro Yoga with Tommy & Christina

    Acroyoga combines a wide variety of asanas with therapeutic flying and connects them through dynamic transitions. The almost unlimited number of different figures and their juxtapositions opens up a wide spectrum of flows, which can be very varied.

At our yoga festival you can relive the energy of real live concerts. Listen, chill or dance. Our varied music program has something for everyone - solo singing by Markus Mascher, atmospheric handpand sounds by Christoph and relaxing sound music between our individual yoga classes.

    The sounds of the handpan can be sometimes powerfully percussive, sometimes gently touching, and always harmonious. When Christoph plays it, he lets himself be guided by the environment and the mood. There are no prefabricated pieces of music, or distance to the audience. Sitting at the hall he invites everyone to explore the sounds of the handpan with him.
