Yoga asanas and relaxation

We offer various modern styles of hatha yoga, our approach is a mindful way of practicing yoga. This means, a quiet, attentive and meditative approach. Remaining in an asana can sometimes be intense and powerful. Yet we will also introduce dynamic flow series and be mindful in action! Everyone can participate at his or her level and there is plenty of room for personal variations and modifications.

Pranayama

Breath and energy practices. Learning to work and play with the physical breath, subtle prana flows and mental energy.

Pratyahara & Concentration & Meditation

To withdraw the senses and the attention within towards focus and meditation, in gradual steps and using different techniques, we’ll explore higher realms of consciousness under professional and experienced guidance.
