“Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life” – B.K.S. Iyengar


Yoga Practice – Power Flow Yoga

Power Flow is our vinyasa style yoga, where movement and breath are connected, creating a dynamic flow. The focus is on breathing into each posture, calming the mind and focusing on each movement and how it feels in your body. It is a faster paced class, perfect for the morning to awaken and enliven the body after sleep.


Yoga Practice – Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a restorative style of yoga, focusing on softening into the body, melting away tension through longer held postures. Yin yoga works into the fascia, connective tissues, ligaments and joints of the body, encouraging you to surrender into each pose. Yin yoga is a quieter practice with a more internal focus.


Pranayama / Meditation / Savasana

Pranayama is the control and release of the breath. ‘Prana’ is breath or vital energy in our body, ‘yama’ is to control, and ‘ayama’ is to release. With pranayama practice, you will learn how to breath consciously and fluidly, calming both body and mind.

 Meditation is the art of slowing down the tumultuous ‘monkey mind’. Meditation can bring focus, clarity, emotional positivity and a true sense of calm to your being.

 Savasana is a state of full relaxation for the body and mind. Savasana often occurs at the end of the yoga class, where the body can completely relax and integrate everything that has occurred during the physical practice of yoga.
