Junior, senior, beginner or advanced: everybody is welcome! Yogiez offers hatha yoga, yin yoga, Pranayama and meditation. Yoga classes, workshops and retreats.
Hatha yoga is a basic form of yoga. In hatha yoga the focus is on the postures (asanas) and on the breathing (pranayama). ‘Ha’ means sun, the active and the male energy. ‘Tha’ means moon, the inactive and the female energy. The main goal in hatha yoga is to bring the energy (prana) in balance and while we balance our energy we bring our mind and body in balance too. Hatha yoga is perfect for beginners but also for advanced practitioners. I offer more options so everybody can enjoy the yoga.
Yin yoga is a more relaxed form of yoga. It is a kind of meditative form of movement. In the yin yoga the postures will be hold for over 3 minutes with a maximum of 5 minutes. Yin, in contrary of the active yang, is inactive. In the posture you try to do as inactive as you can by relaxing all the muscles, let go of everything and let the gravity do its work. By doing this you reach the deeper layers in the body (joints, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue). Also the focus will be on energy lines (meridians) in the body. The goal is to balance the energy (qi) in the energy lines and in the body. Everybody can practice yin yoga. Every posture can be made suitable for you so you can fully relax and enjoy the positive effects of the yin yoga.
Pranayama & Meditation
Pranayama is a word from the Sanskrit language. ‘Prana’ means vital energy or life force, ‘ayama’ means controlling or extension. Pranayama is the conscious awareness of the breath and controlling the breath. In some of the classes we will practice pranayama and meditation in the beginning/end.

My name is Ezra Goudzwaard. I first made contact with the concept of yoga when I was still studying for my bachelor in Cultural Anthropology and development studies at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. From that first moment, the first yoga class, yoga ignited a passion in me that I could not resist. During my bachelor, I specialized in religion and philosophy of Asia, where I studied the ancient yoga scripts. I then moved to India to conduct field research into the practices of yoga tourism. This lead to my Bachelor thesis ‘spiritual yoga tourism in India’.
After my studies I decided to focus on developing myself as a yogi. I met a lot of fascinating teachers all over the world who taught me valuable lessons. Also, I achieved some certifications: 200 hours Hatha Yoga, 50 hours Yin Yoga and Pranic Healing Level 1.
Today, yoga is a lifestyle for me. Yoga teaches me a lot in life and I enjoy yoga every day. The name Ezra means ‘help’. With Yogiez I hope to help you grow a little more in your own yoga journey, so you can experience the joys of yoga as well!
