Are you looking for inner peace?
Yoga has many healing benefits for your mind, body and soul. Physically, sweat expels toxins and re-energizes your body. Mentally, the synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and helps to release any blockage of energy flow throughout your body.

Yin & Restorative Yoga
Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things.
In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin.
A Yin Yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, whilst I move around using gentle thai yoga massage techniques and I guide you with breath to help you soften in to the pose.
Pregnancy Yoga Flow
These Pregnancy yoga classes are designed specifically for the rapidly changing body and mind of the pregnant mother. I have created my own flow’s, modifying some of my Vinyasa experience.

The morning sickness, achy lower back, and fatigue of pregnancy have passed. But for new mamas, a whole other different set of physical conditions often accompanies the bliss of loving your little creation. Luckily, a few simple yoga poses address the most common concerns. Our bodies are always in transition, so don’t think that you have to be exactly the way you were before pregnancy, but you can expect to be healthy, vital, and strong again. Mum’s aren’t the only ones who can benefit from yoga; a few basic moves for your baby can make your infant more comfortable and calm.
Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
