The Love Yoga Studio in Tenerife is a warm and inviting space.  Located in the residential area of Puerto de la Cruz, in the comfortable and welcoming tennis club ‘Club Deportivo de Ocio’. There is a wide selection of classes to chose from, all given in English and Spanish and there is no need to be a member in order to enjoy one of the classes or any part of the tennis club’s amenities.

THE AVAILABLE CLASSES:

Flexibility

In this flexibility class we start with an effective warm up to prepare the body for a good stretch. Different props are used; such as elastics, the feetup and the aerial yoga stirrups, which help get into a deeper, and more satisfying stretch. Good flexibility helps a better range of motion and helps muscle strength to prevent injuries. A class for all levels! These classes are taught by Margherita and Chely. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Hatha Yoga

In this perfect class for beginners, you can find the balance between body and mind. The body is worked through the asanas (postures) and all the muscles are toned in a controlled way while you will also learn to control resistance and flexibility in a slow manner. A much less dynamic class than Element Yoga or Warrior Yoga, in this Hatha Yoga class you will learn to control the mind through meditation and pranayama (energy control) through breathing techniques. This class is taught by Teresa, a wonderful, smiley and cheerful teacher. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Yoga Alignment

This class is based on Iyengar yoga and Yin yoga teaching methods. This style of yoga is designed to offer the student a thorough understanding of the postures and to explore asanas on a deeper level. It emphasises correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose. This precision builds strength and stamina–balance and flexibility–and a new sense of self-exploration and well being. Alignment Yoga allows steady progress in the art and science of yoga and provides solid tools to make almost any yoga pose work for you. This class is taught by Sonia, a fantastic French-Austrian yoga teacher who is fabulous at correcting postures. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Warrior Yoga

Warrior Yoga is a dynamic and cardio based yoga that facilitates the elimination of toxins through breathing and challenging sequences. This style of yoga helps you to empower your inner warrior, to step out of your confort zone and to learn how to get rid of unnecessary fears. The mantra of Warrior yoga is “I Can”, allowing you to progress rather quickly in your physical and spiritual practice. This class is also taught by Sonia, an incredible yoga teacher with lots of patience. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Element Vinyasa Yoga

A dynamic class that connects one of the five elements with fluid movements (of the Krama Vinyasa style). The entire body is worked through the asanas (postures) placed in a sequence (flow). The fluid movement strengthens the muscles and improves flexibility while using breathing techniques to control and guide the mind, balancing mind and body. Each class starts with 5 minutes of meditation and ends with 5 minutes of relaxation. A class for all levels, however it is considered to be rather dynamic. Yoga beginners welcome! This class is taught by Marghertia, specialised in Krama Vinyasa. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Strong Asanas

In this strength building class we focus on 2 strong asanas from an intermediate yoga class (the asanas change each week). The class begins with a 5 minute wrist warm up and procedes with a series of shoulder, core and active flexibility exercises in order to achieve the main goal. Please note that this is NOT a yoga class. There is no meditation or relaxation. It is purely to work towards the strength to achieve some of the harder asanas (postures) from a vinyasa yoga class. This class is also taught by Marghertia. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Aerial Yoga

In this class variations of the asanas (postures) of mat yoga are practiced with the help of the hammock. Practising various postures with the help of the suspension of the yoga swing helps strengthen the muscles. Flexibility is also gained in a relaxing way while helping to relieve tension in the spine and cervical area when maintaining inverted postures for a few minutes. It helps disconnect the mind and relieves stress. We begin each class with 5 minutes of meditation and breathing before commencing with the warm up. Although some postures can seem rather acrobatic, the strength to perform them is gained throughout the sessions. Each class ends with a 5 minute relaxation in the hammocks. There are four hammocks, therefore a maximum of 4 people per class. Each hammock is cleaned with an antibacterial spray and then ironed with vapour at 90 degrees. The class lasts 1 hour. This class is also taught by Marghertia. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Pole Dance

Get fit by creating beautiful shapes and spins. By using all of the muscles in the body, Pole Dance is a very complete exercise that tones and strengthens. It is not necessary to have experience or specific strength to learn how to do Pole Dance. Strength and flexibility are worked during each session. We normally start with a 15 minute cardio and fitness warm up. The main portion of the class is dedicated to learning spins and figures on the pole. Finally, we finish 35 minutes of exercise on the pole by doing “combos” (or combining what we learnt during the class with linking moves). The class finishes with 10 minutes of stretching and cool down at the end. There are 2 poles and a maximum of 4 people are allowed in one session (2 people per pole). This class is also taught by Marghertia. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).

Aro Hoop

In this one hour acrobatic class you will learn how to combine movements on the lyra, a circular steel ring (similar to a hula hoop) that’s suspended in the air by rope attached to the ceiling. A similar class to Pole Dance, here you will start with a 15 minute warm up, to condition and strengthen the muscles needed for the class. 35 minutes on the lyra are spent learning different techniques and poses, and the class terminates with a 10 minute stretch and cool down in the end. Two lyras are hung from the ceiling, there fore there is limited space in the class. A total of 4 students are permitted to the class (2 people per lyra hoop). These classes are taught by Margherita and Chely. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. This class is only available to residents).
