Our numerous classes in classical hatha yoga include sessions adapted for intermediate and advanced students, pregnancy, kids, and for those wishing a more gentle practice. Each class emphasises proper breathing, flexibility, strength and vitality in the body while calming the mind. Most classes follow a structure of: initial relaxation (Savasana), breathing exercises (Pranayama), sun salutation (Surya Namaskar), 12 basic postures (Asanas), and final guided relaxation.
Our classes are based on the traditional teachings of Yoga and Vedanta which aims to naturally achieve the goal of self-realisation and peace through creating a healthy body and mind that leads to spiritual evolution.

Satsang is at the heart of yoga practice. It is the gateway to inner peace and spiritual growth. It means ‘association with the wise’. It starts with half an hour of silent meditation followed by devotional chanting and an informal talk on the practical philosophy of yoga and vedanta. Here is an opportunity to share the wisdom of our Masters, Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda, through their books and other writings. The group energy of Satsang helps in accelerating the personal growth of the aspirants; meditating together creates a strong spiritual atmosphere which allows for a deeper experience of meditation. People of different levels come together, from newcomers to experienced yoga teachers—it is free and all are welcome.
Please be in touch with the centre for festivals and other spiritual gatherings.
