Personal classes present a closer, customised view into the practise of yoga. Working with a teacher one on one or in a private group, you can deepen your practice in your own space and time. We carefully design each class to focus on your specific needs such as alignment, therapy, injury rehabilitation, stress relief, relaxation and philosophy
Our disorganised lifestyle sometimes knocks our sense of well-being out of balance, making us susceptible to injury on psychosomatic planes. Yoga, as a practice, fosters a great degree of self-awareness, most of which is directed towards re-align and re-condition the mind to stay balanced and focused on healthier approaches to living
