Yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, shape and size. Men, women, kids, and seniors, mothers-to-be and new mums will all benefit from regular yoga practice. Your first step onto the yoga mat is the start of an exciting journey to building a solid yoga foundation.
The benefits of yoga include greater flexibility, improved strength, reduced stress levels, relief from chronic disease, pain, premature aging, and generally a feeling of enhanced wellbeing.
Our yoga practice is rooted in the Akhanda yoga tradition.
It was started to help others to lead a more holistic, balanced and healthy lifestyle, providing time away from the busyness and stress of many current lifestyles.
Through regular holistic yoga practice, many students have found that they are able to better cope with stress and day-to-day demands and activities.
Classes are based on traditional yoga, offering a balanced sequencing of asana, pranayama, relaxation, and meditation.
When practiced and understood holistically, yoga becomes even more beneficial and helpful in bringing harmony and balance to our lives, families and society.

Meditation is a tool for rediscovering the body’s own inner intelligence. It is about finding the silence that exists within and is part of every one of us, and bringing it to conscious awareness. This awareness leads the way to greater compassion and inner fulfilment in life. It allows us to find our creativity and freedom. Meditation is a journey to the centre of our very being; a journey to emotional freedom; and a journey to the reawakening of our unconditioned self.
Utilizing proper breathwork is an extremely important tool in yoga. Mindful breathing facilitates the connection between body and mind, improves focus and attention, more energy and greater oxygen supply to the body, thus reducing the effects of aging on the body. The benefits include reduced stress
levels, improved sleep patterns and a greater sense of wellbeing.
