agoYoga

The new yoga-plus concept "AgoYoga", i.e. yoga read once forwards, once backwards, a play on words that reflects the flowing dynamics and new functionality in the sequences. Static becomes movement. It's an increase in intensity that gives you more understanding of the yoga practice, but also more stability for movement sequences in everyday life.
I recommend this course for:
  • All Yoga Practitioners
  • Fitness trainer
  • Yoga and Pilates Trainer and Teacher
  • personal trainer

More dynamics on the mat

Good news for all yoga fans: challenging positions (asanas) are now much easier to take. This is made possible by agoYoga.

Together with Laura Biemann, director of the well-known yoga studio OM UND COMPANY in Munich, I have modernized yoga. Classic and static yoga positions become functional and close to everyday life with the help of the elastic PATband and the PATrigger multi-tool. My tools help you to find your way more effortlessly into postures and at the same time target the right muscles. This is a big plus especially for yoga beginners, but also advanced students can make their postures more precise. 

Laura Biemann shows you exercises for your yoga practice: "The stretchy aid gives stability, promotes mobility and enables precise, fluid execution of the sequences. It's almost like you're assisting and helping with a pose as a teacher."

The aim is to optimise certain asanas by pulling the soft, elastic aid in such a way that mobility, coordination and strength building are promoted. "Particularly in twists, hip openings, but also in the forward bend or in balance exercises, the band can facilitate the processes, and through the noticeable counterpressure, the practitioner also understands better which muscle groups need to be used," explains the yoga expert. 

And how it's done: Basically, the band is applied in a supportive manner - usually one foot or hand is in the loop for tension - and is adjusted individually for each exercise. The PATrigger replaces the yoga block and increases the variability of the possible exercises many times over. 

We wish you a lot of fun with the first agoYoga exercises!

Follow my basic rules for a healthy workout:

Make sure you perform your exercise in a controlled manner. Perform them only as fast as you feel safe in the movement. Increase the speed depending on the training goal without losing the quality of the execution.

Basically, exhale through your mouth when exercising against the resistance of the band or moving up from the floor. The inhalation occurs when you yield to the resistance of the band or approach the floor.

Stop the exercise when it can no longer be performed in a controlled manner without evasive movements. This occurs before you feel the typical burning sensation in the muscle, which is not necessary for a purely functional training stimulus.

Pull your belly button inwards and straighten your chest. This will prevent your pelvis from tilting forward and increasing your natural hollow back. Also avoid unwanted head movements, such as pulling your chin towards your chest. These compensatory movements have the effect of worsening your posture through training instead of improving it!

The PATband gives you the possibility to vary the exercise intensity from easy to hard. Shorten the band or double it if you want to train with higher resistance. Depending on the exercise, training goal and performance level, you can adjust the elasticity of the band to suit you. Always make sure that all exercises are performed correctly, regardless of the speed at which you perform them. 

If you don't feel comfortable with an exercise or feel pain, it makes sense to replace it with an alternative. But: Just because you find an exercise difficult and exhausting, it does not mean that you should no longer do it. Because often it is exactly these exercises that bring you further!

The fast track to success is always linked to intensive coaching. Through my guidance in coaching you will better control your exercises and perform them without compensation. Thus, your sources of error are minimized and the effectiveness is increased many times over. Please contact me personally for this.
