What is Yoga?
Where breathing & movement are practised in a concatenated series. Balanced exercises that develop strength and flexibility so that you can release mental and physical tension, to become stronger and more flexible.
Hatha yoga focuses on the balance between exertion and relaxation. Poses alternate between dynamic and static positions and improve strength, balance and well-being. Hatha yoga brings the body and spirit in balance by combining physical poses with controlled breathing, which reduces stress and promotes relaxation. Contracting and releasing the muscles helps to purify the body of waste products and other harmful chemicals and reduces the pain caused by strains. The various poses and breathing exercises make the body flexible and supple and have a positive effect on the nervous system, glands and other important organs.
This type of yoga is also known as flow yoga because of the way in which one pose gradually and smoothly flows into another. Vinyasa means 'breath-synchronised' movement and involves moves that are performed to the rhythm of breathing. Vinyasa yoga enhances physical and mental strength, concentration, flexibility and stamina. Classes are available for both complete beginners and advanced yogis.

Unlike dynamic forms of yoga, the object of Yin yoga is not to strengthen muscles but to relax them. Poses are held longer and flexibility is developed at deeper levels. This type of yoga focuses on repairing the back and deep connective tissues and making them more flexible. Yin yoga involves elements of mindfulness and has a meditative and calming effect.

Yoga Nidra or "yogi sleep" is a sleep-like state.
Yoga Nidra is similar to lucid dreaming in which the deepest possible state of relaxation is experienced while still remaining conscious.
During a Yoga Nidra, our body rests completely and after a session of 45 minutes, we feel relaxed as if we had slept for three to four hours.
