We’ll offer different styles of yoga practice, adapted to your needs and experience and to the time of the day and the season. We are a Raja Yoga School. Raja Yoga is one of the oldest and most complete forms of yoga, where the asanas (physical practices) are considered to be a preparation for meditation. Although we offer various modern styles, 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.
