Stretch/Yin: This class is very relaxing. We hold postures (mostly floor Asanas) usually for 5 minutes with the aim to get deeper into the tissues to stimulates and release the Fascia and joints. We do not push into the stretch but rather try to stay into that "sweet spot" where you may experience a little bit of discomfort but NOT pain. We find that edge where your body starts to resist naturally and learn to breathe into it.
Promotes relaxation, calm and balancing of the Mind and Body. Restores our fascia, increases circulation an improves flexibility.
As the title suggests, we move and transition slowly between each pose linking breath and movements together. You will practice standing and seated postures. Great for strengthening and mobilising the body at the same time. Reduce stress and creates stillness for the Mind and Body.
Hatha is ideal for beginner, but suitable also for the more advanced Yoga practionner. We focus on alignments and breathing comfortably while holding the pose. It is an ideal class for people that want to perfect their practice.
This class offer a mix of standing an seated postures. Great for strengthening an maintaining a strong, mobile and flexible body, improving posture, helping balance, blood circulation and function of your organs. Added benefits include improved focus and concentration, relaxation and happy mind.

A Vinyasa style. Vinyasa means breath and movements linked together.

The Yin portion of this class is a gentle, quiet, and meditative practice that teaches us to relax and accept ourselves just as we are. All poses are done on the floor so that the muscles can relax and allow the deep connective tissues surrounding the hips, thighs, and lower back to be gently stretched. The Yang portion of class allows us to integrate this openness and awareness into a sense of steadiness & alignment. Poses will include gentle flow & strengthening poses held for longer periods of time. This class is suitable for all levels. Beginners welcome!
Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. ... During the long holds of restorative yoga, however, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It's a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. It is based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. Beginners welcome!
