Body and Mind

ASHTANGA YOGA  – This dynamic, physically demanding practice synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat designed to purify the body. Ashtanga yoga, with its many vinyasas, is great for building core strength and toning the body. Prepare to sweat as you briskly move through a set sequence.

HATHA YOGA – Learn how to control breathing in a relaxed way in order to provide focus in the different postures. Hatha Yoga is a way to a better health and spirituality. Try to do a body & mind class 2 times a week.

VINYASA OR FLOW YOGA – One of the most commonly practiced styles in the West. The word Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement” – thus movement from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. This technique is sometimes also called Vinyasa Flow, or just Flow because of the smooth, graceful way that the poses run together and become like a dance.

POWER YOGA – A flowing vinyasa sequence based on the robust Ashtanga style of yoga that combines the Sun Salutation with standing poses, forward bends, back bends, twists and arm balances for a complete total-body workout. Feel the power, be the power – get ready to sweat….

SWING YOGA – Allows the participants more freedom of movement and a unique way to stretch and tone the body. Swing is very therapeutic in relieving compressed joints and fixing muscle imbalances in the body. Additionally, hanging upside down can alleviate muscular tension and pain as well as promoting increased joint mobility and flexibility, energy levels and circulation of the blood. All these in turn promote good health and well-being.

YIN YOGA – A perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.  Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the body, the tendons fascia and ligaments with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.

MINDFUL YOGA – Mindful yoga is a gentle yoga focusing on strengthening, stretching and breathing to bring you back to yourself and discover stillness, calm and inner peace. The class is suitable for all fitness levels, it also incorporates laughter yoga (unconditional laughter with yogic breathing pranayama) which has been proven to help people heal from stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, heart disease and hypertension.

GENTLE YOGA – Appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice, controlled pressure, and well-measured stretches, including range of motion exercises. Postures may be approached in gradual steps, with plenty of time to focus on breathing and repetition so that the practice is simple to do and easy to remember.

 PILATES – Builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body. It results in more energy, less tension in your muscles, better stability and flexibility, and a flatter abdomen.
