Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar yoga is a discipline which focuses on alignment of the body to achieve emotional and mental balance and strength. Our YTT program presents primarily Iyengar yoga complimented with various other styles of yoga.

We share these different perspectives and possibilities to facilitate students in cultivating a universal teaching style. This approach provides a strong foundation from which to grow internally and externally, developing a solid, traditional practice and an extensive knowledge of this ancient discipline.

Hatha & Vinyasa yoga

With continued practice, yoga asanas can remove impurities and strengthens the functions of both the body and mind.

Hatha is a method which quickly builds strength, increases flexibility, and clears toxins from the body. This method includes numerous sequences of asanas (yoga postures).

Vinyasa synchronizes breath to movement and links one posture to another in a fluid sequence. This practice stimulates the cardiovascular system and generates heat in the body, which eases the body into the asanas.
