We’re seeing more and more people doing it, Instagram accounts are full of great Yoga pictures, and everyone is talking about it, but why is it so beneficial? What can this practice really bring you?
Practicing Yoga regularly helps to feel better, more peaceful, and more serene. By practicing Yoga, you learn to reduce your stress level and to leave aside all the worries of everyday life. Yoga shares this characteristic with meditation, it allows to refocus and to empty the mind. Regular Yoga sessions help you relax and create moments of serenity in your everyday life.

Aerial yoga is a type of yoga which uses a hammock or yoga swing to allow students to perform postures that they may not ordinarily be able to attempt on the yoga mat. It is often also referred to as flying yoga.
Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement”. Vinyasa (or flow) yoga consist of a serie of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling.
If you have never tried Yoga before this is a great place to start, and for those who enjoy a less strenuous practice a great practice to stay with. Despite being a more relaxed class you will still gain the benefits of creating strength while increasing your flexibility!
Yin Yoga is a slow practice of well-supported seated and supine postures, encouraging softness and nourishment. Each posture is held for 3 to 5 minutes to gently relax and stretch deep muscles and tissue.
When we are well rested, the body heals and regulates itself. Restore the body to its natural state of health and emotional balance with deeply relaxing gentle yoga poses and breathwork. Release tension and ease anxiety in this practice of self-love and self-care. This is a quiet practice, where you really listen to your body and mind.
On some mornings at 10, instead of practising yoga we learn about the history, philosophy, meaning and purpose of yoga. Our teachers introduce you to the fundamentals of yoga. In each session it is highly encouraged to ask questions and seek answers.
Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required.
