Classes



Restorative
Restorative yoga is slow, calming and nurturing. Perfect for beginners or those with existing medical conditions. It facilitates blood circulation and relaxation by holding gentle poses for a few minutes. Through relaxation, the fascia network is able to 'stretch' and bind the connective tissues and muscle fibers. It's a great way to unwind and de-stress!



Hatha
Hatha yoga is the foundation of all Yoga systems and is the preparation for other styles of yoga. Ha means "sun" and tha means "moon." Thus, Hatha yoga refers to positive (sun) and to negative (moon) currents in the system. These currents are to be balanced and mastered so that vital force, prana, can be regulated, the mind cleared and superconscious states experienced. The ideal way to practice the Hatha yoga poses (asanas) is to approach the practice session in a calm, meditative mood. Sit quietly for a few moments, then begin the series, slowly, with control and grace, being inwardly aware as the body performs the various poses selected for the practice session.



Pre-natal
For ladies that have just passed their first trimester & are looking at yoga for mind, body, soul development in the areas of their well-being, stress relief & bonding with their baby. Pre-natal yoga is of tremendous benefit to the mother for easing pains such as headaches, backaches & recharging low energy levels. It is vital for improving breathing techniques & toning pelvic floor muscles for an easier childbirth. Above all, it is a calming & revitalizing session for mum to bond with her baby at ease.



Post-natal
For mothers who just delivered & wish to regain their strength, vitality & physique. Post natal yoga is very effective for dealing with neck pain & backache commonly associated with post delivery pain & breastfeeding. Lots of hormonal changes right after birth & yoga comes in handily without coercing the body but respecting its needs. A specially tailored program to get you back into shape & cope with motherhood with the inherent goodness of yoga. Expect core abdominal work to tone the waist, hips, thigh area as well as the arms. Effective without being insane!
