Hatha yoga

Combinations of traditional postures at a moderate pace. Regenerate the spinal column and strengthen muscles. Decrease joint stiffness. Stretching, breathing exercises, mental concentration. Awaken all of your senses in a physical practice that respects your limits.


Vinyasa yoga

Gentle yoga

A slow and meditative practice with postures for everybody, including those suffering from arthritis or back pain. Gentle yoga encourages interiority, concentration on the breath and bodily sensations. Postures are approached more through the lens of release than through effort. Please speak with your teacher before the class if you have any special conditions or concerns.


Meditation

A guided practice either seated or laying down. The use of props will help each person find the most comfortable position in which to explore the various techniques that could be proposed (concentration on the breath, concentration on sensation, use of mantra, visualization...). With regular practice, meditation is proven to help reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep and deepen one's connection to onself and to others.
