What is the difference between a normal yoga class and a yoga masterclass?
First of all, time. A regular yoga class lasts between 60 and 90 minutes and a yoga master class lasts longer. From half a day to even a few days. But what more to expect?
Below we explain why it’s nice to immerse yourself in a masterclass in yoga practice and more ….
1. In-depth yoga practice
In a Yoga Masterclass, the yoga postures are broken down very thorough in the classroom. And its deeper meaning is explained. The beauty of this in-depth training is that you will experience this the purpose of the postures in your body. The words, the routine you might expect, will feel different. Which will change your own practice and its significance.
2. Longer Practice
As stated in the intro, a master class lasts longer. You will, therefore, have more time to learn the postures. But also to find out more about it. The ‘ moment of truth ‘ is much longer. And you can, as it were, completely sink into the practice. Often, after taking a regular yoga class you have to go away because you have other obligations. You might be on the way to your next appointment or your work. In a masterclass, there is simply… more time. A regular class takes 60 to 90 minutes and a masterclass is usually 3 hours or even longer.
Because of the time, the theme and space there are for just you as a human being, you literally get the feeling of a retreat. To immerse yourself in a certain theme (of the masterclass). The background information and the yoga postures that you practice. One great source of inspiration. And don’t just think of ‘ yoga on the mat ‘, but especially ‘ yoga off the mat ‘. The real Yoga practice starts when you get off the mat. It is important to have full attention. To be fully aware. So you have the time to incorporate everything that comes by during the masterclass and take it in like a sponge. And especially to let go and relax. You will feel reborn. Powerful, full of renewed energy and ideas.
4. Community Feeling
The great thing about a masterclass is that everyone attending has consciously chosen to be there. The so-called 3 T’s: Teacher, Time and Theme). The people who are there, in any case, share this with each other. You will get to know new people who experience the same as you, the sense of practicing yoga together. That sense of being together. And practicing yoga together at this level gives a sense of belonging and community-feeling. Everyone ultimately wants to feel connected-whether you are introverted or extroverted.
‘ Everyone wants to feel connected-whether you’re introverted or extroverted-in the end ‘
5. Connect with your favorite Teacher
In the case of our motto: ‘ Online is great, in person is Magic ‘, it is of course great to meet your online yoga teacher in the flesh. The vibes you normally get through the screen will now be real. As if you were going to a concert of your favorite artist, but more interactive. The teacher is the person who may have been ‘ taking you by the hand ‘ for many months through a variety of yoga practices. Your coach, therapist, in what might have been difficult times.
Always returning to your mat and the online lessons of your favorite yoga teacher. The experiences of yogis who have felt this at a Seaze the Day Yoga Event are praising and enthusiastic. There is something magical to practicing yoga together with your favorite yoga teacher and yogis.
‘ The Energy and interaction is overwhelming ‘!
