Yoga is a discipline to unify the body, mind and spirit, with the ultimate goal for the practitioner to realize their true potential. To reach this aim, regular and balanced practices of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing) and meditation are required. All of our classes are designed to heighten awareness in every practice. However, some classes focus more on body awareness, through asana (posture) practices and consciously to feel their effects. These asana classes are categorized into 3 levels of physical aptitudes; beginners to all levels, intermediate and higher, ranging from suitable for absolute beginners to those whose bodies have been trained for postures requiring higher level of technique. Asana classes promote physical fitness, as well as preparing the practitioner to sit still for more advanced yoga practices.
Advanced yoga practices encompass Pranayama (breathing), Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses in complete relaxation), Dharana (absorbed concentration on a single point) and Dhyana (stilling of the mind in meditation), with the ultimate goal to reach Samadhi, the highest level of awareness where the practitioner reunites with the source of the divine essence. We offer a wide range of advanced yoga classes in conjunction with asana practices. These yoga practices for the mind free practitioners from daily stress, foster cognitive clarity and aid to get in touch with their inner wisdom. Unlike higher level asana classes, students of all physical aptitudes can, and are encouraged, to attend classes with advanced yoga practices, indicated with a OM sign 🕉in the class description below.
