BREATH WORK
From the start untill the end you breathe your whole life. It’s is a subconscious process which you can influence consciously. When you influence the breath, you instantly influence your state of being and vice versa. Breathe to relax, breathe to energise, breathe to connect, there are many ways to do it.

Although we take around 80% of our energy from oxygen, we don’t learn much about breathing. Besides the physical process there is the movement of the breath, or flow, that can make tensions and stress in the body ‘melt’ or release. We do these breathing exercises lying down. There is no breath work experience required, only a curious and open mind-set. Come join our conscious breathing session feeling renewed!

DEEP GUIDED MEDITATION
Meditation can be defined as a practice where an individual uses a technique, such as focusing their mind on a particular object, thought or activity, to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. Meditation creates a lightness of being. Discover the peaceful realms of your inner self from where you can connect to your deeper layers of love and the quietness of the vast cosmos. There is no meditation experience required, only a curious and open mind-set.

YIN YOGA
Yin yoga is a slow, restorative class that is accessible for all ages and ability levels. In this class you move through asanas at an unhurried pace, staying in each pose for anywhere from 45 seconds to 2 minutes. Holding the poses for longer periods of time applies more pressure to the deep connective tissue, increasing circulation and improving your flexibility. This meditative class is perfect for unwinding after a stressful workday! This class is suitable for all levels and is low in intensity.
