Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
Ashtanga vinyasa yoga, usually referred to simply as Ashtanga yoga, is a style of yoga created by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and named after the eight limbs of yoga mentioned in the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali. It's a vigorous and dynamic practice with very specific series of asanas. Mysore Practice is an assisted morning Self-Practice where an Ashtanga certified teacher holds the space for students to come and practice on their own.

HATHA is translated as HA meaning “sun” which refers to the more active postures and the flow we create and THA meaning “moon” which means cooling down becoming passive by adding a deep relaxation and meditation towards the end. Hatha Flow Yoga is great for all students whether beginners who want to start adding yoga to their lives or intermediate who want to go a bit deeper. It is a gently flowing class where we explore asanas (physical postures) with their variations to cater all bodies and needs. We hold each asana for a few breaths, with the focus on proper, deep breathing, alignment and muscular strength. We often end with a meditation or visualisation followed by a deep final relaxation.
You will leave this class energised and relaxed at the same time, creating the balance between mind, body and soul.

Vinyasa Yoga Flow
Vinyasa in Sanskrit means "breath-synchronized movement," and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are creative, smoothly flowing and almost dance-like. Based on the Ashtanga series, Vinyasa Flow is usually a dynamic practice aimed at energising both body and mind. In a Vinyasa class, students awaken their strength, energy, and flexibility in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
Yin Yoga is about relaxing, letting go and has a very meditative quality to it. Yin yoga is a calm and peaceful practice, working on the connective tissues which consist of ligaments, tendons, cartilage, joints, capsules and our deep fascial networks. Yin Yoga helps strengthen your body to become healthier, more flexible and mentally more peaceful. In order to reach the connective tissue which by nature is less elastic than our muscular system, we have to hold the postures for longer periods of time - between 3 and 7 minutes. Yin yoga focuses on opening and unblocking your energy meridians that run through your body. These meridians directly affect your body and your organs.
