Deep relaxation Soma Yoga online is specially designed for deep relaxation, energy recovery, natural breathing, and the release of physical and mental tensions. The pace of the class is slow, which gives you the opportunity to develop body awareness and thereby learn to recognize and release deep-seated tensions in the body.

Deep Release Soma Yoga includes: 


Restorative Yoga 

Restorative yoga is a slow and gentle form of yoga that has the intention to bring you into a deep state of relaxation and rest. I use various props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks to support the body in various yoga poses, allowing the whole system to enter into a deeply relaxed state. Being in these postures has a rejuvenating effect on the body and mind as it allows you to drop down from a fight-and-flight response into the parasympathetic nervous system triggering the so-called “relaxation response", through which your body can heal and renew itself fully.


Mindful Embodied Hatha Yoga 


Mindfulness is a common term that has its roots in Buddhism that means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the surrounding environment. Embodiment is a state of being fully present and connected to your body. Also called ’embodied awareness’ this is a practice that helps you experience a state of full connection to your body, a state in which you feel present and a whole. Embodied Awareness is a term that is being used in the fields of somatic psychotherapy, somatic movement education, and dance. Mindfulness and Embodiment are an important part of Soma Yoga. During my lessons, we practice bringing awareness to each pose. We are going deeper into the sensations of body and breath. That means going slower and staying longer in each pose. This kind of approach to yoga has a profound immediate effect on your mental and emotional state.


Breathwork is an essential part of Soma Yoga classes. We apply breathwork with the intention to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. There are many forms of breathwork therapy that involve breathing in a conscious and structured way.  Breathwork promotes deep relaxation and helps you feel more energized. In Soma Yoga, each pose is an exploration. Through mindfulness and embodied awareness you are creating more connections between your breath and your body. You learn to recognize and release blockages in the body. With this, you learn to recognize and free your natural breath. 



There are endless studies done on the benefits of meditation on our health. Research shows that meditation can help us handle better negative feelings and emotions. While there are many forms of meditation, the ultimate goal is a feeling of relaxation and inner peace, which can improve mental health. In Soma Yoga classes we are learning to focus deeply on the sensations of the body. Being present, observing the breath, becoming aware, in connection with your body are some basic components of meditation an essential part of each Soma Yoga class.
