Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic, powerful and effective form of yoga that stimulates the nervous system, glandular system and the immune system as it centres the mind and opens the spirit. Benefits include weight control, relief from stress and insomnia, enhanced creativity, lymphatic cleansing, liver detoxificationbalancing the heart and mind, and developing will-power.

Hatha Flow strengthens, stretches, tones and relaxes the body and mind while synchronizing breath with movement. Hatha yoga is the classical form of yoga postures and breathing that revitalizes the body physically and mentally. It is an uplifting practice that increases muscle tone, improves flexibility and concentration, detoxifies the vital organs and allows you to experience a state of deep relaxation.

Restorative Yoga is a gentle class focusing on breathing, relaxation, gentle movements, and supported poses. The slow pace is the perfect remedy to a stressful daily life. Restorative Yoga helps lower blood pressure and heart rate, increase flexibilityimprove sleep and to create a balanced and grounded feeling.

Yin Yoga is a slow paced and therapeutic yoga practice that targets the connective tissues around the hips, pelvis and lower spine. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. Most yin poses are done on the floor and held for 2 – 10 minutes. Yin takes a more meditative approach than Hatha Yoga and is a very passive but deep practice.
