Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline mainly originated in India over 5000 years ago. With the practice of Yoga, one starts to harmonize the body with the mind and breath through various breathing techniques, yoga postures (asanas) and meditation. Once one is in harmony within, the journey through life becomes calmer and more fulfilled.
The regular practice of Yoga brings remarkable lifestyle changes in the practitioners, reporting a balanced, happier living with reduced anxiety, increased tolerance and mindfulness. Yoga works for everyone, from people engaged in desk jobs, to sport professionals, to people looking for stress release or wishing to connect and balance body and mind.
Weekly yoga classes are supportive. Choose a practice to offer yourself that needed space to heal from within or gain the pause to breathe and be. Classes cultivate a healthy body and mind. Be warmly received by the group. Get to know dedicated practitioners, enjoy sharing time. Notice that we adjust to what is present and to practitioners personal needs.

"When starting to practice Yoga, it felt like a true home coming. Maybe because of many years dancing and gymnastics from a young age. As if the body said 'thank you', for giving me that space and strength again. Physical tensions released and my vision on life changed. It all unfolded through ethical values, awareness and mostly love. Ashtanga and Yin Yoga make me feel balanced. To deepen my Yoga practice with profound studies, I find myself refining what I want to share, from experience and the heart".
