About the practice…
Each session begins silently. Concentrated on the breath, this moment allows us to aim attention at the present moment, at the practice, and to leave our daily life worries aside, in order to be more focused on the following experience and on ourselves, to make the most of it. In a word, we practice mindfulness.
After some warm-up and sun salutations, the practice is according to the chosen level, or adapted to the students level, and the flow of various poses takes us up to the final asana, Savasana (total relaxation posture).
Built around a theme, the flow will focus on appropriate postures, to support and cultivate the chosen theme.
Yoga is for everyone – if you can breathe, you can do Yoga…

All yoga practices offered evolve around mindfulness (being fully present with what’s going on right now) and flow (also known as vinyasa). Any classes can also be done on private/one-to-one session. Different styles of yoga can be experienced:
Gentle Yoga is for everyone and designed to work on the basic postures. Particularly adapted to beginners or those who want to deepen or upgrade the basics, this practice allows to discover our limits without stress, while working in depth on balance and inner power.
Power Yoga is a dynamic flow, considered to be an intermediate/advanced practice. Some postures will represent a challenge, in a powerful physical & spiritual practice. Exploring our own limits is the best way to acknowledge them, in order to surpass them.
Anti-stress Yoga is a relaxation restorative practice, opened to all. Chosen postures associated with an conscious breath will open smoothly the body to release tensions, and favor the natural flow of vital energies.
Partner Yoga is a double goal practice (also ideal for couple, partners or friends). You will discover that you are much more capable of what you think, by helping each others in some challenging postures. You will connect and open much more by doing postures together.
