Various styles bring together individual and group sessions that allow students to explore alignment in asanas (poses), pranayama (breathing techniques), philosophy and meditation. Students learn and practice these techniques at their own pace and within their own limitations, attentively guided by verbal instruction, imagery, demonstration, and hands-on direction. Focusing on physical health, emotional balance, mental clarity, and freedom of spirit, a regular practice of yoga builds strength, flexibility, self-esteem, discipline, concentration, focus and also improves mood and tones the body. Also includes key principles of yogic philosophy to enrich your spirit and invite you to a deep contentment and connection to your inner strength.
The restorative practice is designed to restore the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. We use props to support the postures, while gently stretching and strengthening the body. This class is appropriate for students recovering from sickness or injury, wanting to de-stress, or just take it a little easy!

Through the practice of yogasanas the skin becomes resilient and various disorders of the skin can get gradually restored. More importantly with the daily movements the skin is prevented from dehydration. Yoga also helps in toning the facial muscles and the muscles of the neck.

One particular breathing exercise known as the Shitli Kumbhak Pranayama has the ability to cut down facial wrinkles. This technique of Pranayama is also known to enhance the circulation of blood and the purify it thus bringing down toxins and the buildup of acidity.
