Yoga is a technique of breathing, concentration and physical tension and relaxation developed in India thousands of years ago. Beginning with exercises that help you forget everyday life and calm down, various postures (asanas) and breathing exercises (pranayamas) are subsequently combined. In all exercises, the attention is on the physical sensation. Finally, exercises for deep relaxation follow. The Hatha Yoga offered at the Sächsische Staatsbäder GmbH is recommended above all for inner balance, stress reduction, improvement of coordination and mobility, as a relaxation technique as well as for concentration and sleep disorders, and can be performed up to an advanced age.
In this easy-to-learn relaxation method, you lie or sit in a quiet, warm environment and consciously focus on the alternation of tension and relaxation under the guidance of an experienced therapist. In this process, the individual muscle parts are first tensed in a specific sequence, the muscle tension is held briefly and subsequently released. This results in a state of deep relaxation of the whole body and lowering of muscle tension due to improved body awareness. Especially suitable for high blood pressure, muscle tension, insomnia, headaches and psychological problems.

Exercise in the fresh air not only stimulates the fat metabolism, but also trains the cardiovascular system and lifts the mood.
