YO – Hatha Yoga
Hatha Yoga is the most popular westernized traditional yoga and can be taken as deeply as desired by the individual. Hatha yoga is designed to balance mind and body via physical postures, known as “asanas”, breathing techniques, and the calming of the mind through relaxation and meditation. Asanas teach poise, balance and strength to improve the body’s physical health and clear the mind.
Hatha Yoga is for students who are looking for a traditional yoga style that focuses on proper alignment, breath connection and focus with mindfulness. The basic yoga postures are combined with regulated breath and performed in a systematic and accessible manner.

YO – Yin Yoga
Yin yoga is a quieter, introspective meditative practice, which consists of floor based poses held for a longer duration. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues in order to stretch and rehabilitate them. Connective tissue slowly shortens and contracts with ageing, from injuries or neglect, and this is turn affects our joints.We explore long deep stretching to enhance flexibility and joint mobility while encouraging healing and realigning the body’s connective tissues to create spaciousness and stillness in the mind.
OMYO – Yin/Yang Yoga & Meditation
Yin/Yang Yoga & Meditation blends two styles of yoga and meditation into one practice, bringing together the benefits of passively holding (yin) yoga poses with active standing poses (Hatha) and reflective topics to encourage inner peace and harmony with others. Reduces tension, promotes relaxation and flexibility, with insightful direction.
