Ease of movement

Yoga is a powerful tool to create space in the body & mind. It brings ease of movement, provides comfort, strength & vitality to the body.

Peace of mind

Yoga gives us peace of mind, guides us back to our centre, helps us reach our full potential & lightens our hearts.

Energy balance

We work with the Haṭha yoga method, which encompasses body-based practices to balance the energies in order to harmonise the mind.
