Yoga is a practice believed to be over 5000 years old. Originally, it was only practiced by men (the Yogis) and only later did women (the Yoginis) joined in.

This practice was developed to unite bodymind and soul and can be practiced by anyone of any age and of any physical condition.

Through a combination of asanas (postures) and pranayamas (breathing), you can almost immediately start feeling the benefits of our classes of Hatha Yoga. You become more flexible, less stressed and start sleeping better; you feel yourself more focused and more connected with YOU and with your body.

Pre-Natal Yoga

By Catarina Rolo

Throughout our life our body is always changing, but during pregnancy, a woman’s body experiences an accelerated pace of emotional, physical, hormonal and gravitational change.

Pre-natal Yoga is designed to support the changes of the body by adjusting and compensating. It offers a healthy and safe way to stretch the muscles and strengthen the body, especially the pelvic floor muscles, and ease the process of supporting a growing belly and the consciousness of the birth moment. It can also help minimise the aches and pains of those nine months.

Yoga is also synonymous with union, and during pregnancy there is no more profound time for a woman to explore her potential for union than when her body, mind and soul are devoted to the connection and the bonding between herself and the growing child inside her. 

Kidding Around Yoga

By Karima Juma

Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) is a program based in the USA and taught all over the world by certified KAY Instructors.

KAY is a very well-rounded system that brings in all the elements of yoga – breathing, posture and philosophy, specifically designed to expose and share this ancient practice with children aged 2 to 12 years old.

The elements of Yoga are taught in a creative fun way, using songs, stories and art so children can relate to them and be able to make meaningful connections to continue to practice them outside the yoga class.

Statistics say that the principles of Yoga encourage kids to develop self-discipline, perseverance and patience and, therefore, children who practice Yoga regularly are more likely to be calm and resilient and have the ability to focus better. These are essential tools for a good academic performance and to succeed in life.
