Our yoga philosophy
We believe everyone regardless of age, ability, or inclination can benefit from this practice.
“Yoga is for your whole life” means, on the one hand, that one can practice from 2 to 102, and on the other, that its benefits reach far beyond the mat and practice room into every area of one’s life.
A rare opportunity to relax, unplug, and reset. You will contemplate and go deep inside to restore and nourish the mind, body, and soul. This class utilizes props to support the body and decompress the nervous system and combines gentle movements, meditation, and yoga philosophy.

Mindful Vinyasa Level 1-2
This class offers an opportunity to dive deeply into our own being of awareness, stillness, and contentment. It is a mindful flow, integrating the three main components of a well-rounded practice: thoroughly aligned postures, conscious breathing, and focused meditation. While performing sun salutations, standing poses, core strengthening, hip openers, backbends, twists, inversions, you name it... the emphasis is on maintaining the evenness of the mind itself. When needed, we ponder, observe, study, and learn, so that it does not become mechanistic calisthenics. There may be unusual and challenging aspects, but in this synthetic and unpretentious approach, everything is rooted in authentic tradition, which might be broader than you think. Vive la différence!
