Yoga Therapy tailors traditional yoga practices to help meet the health needs of individuals. Run in small classes or individually suitable for all ages and levels of experience, it is taught in a safe manner with participants taking control of each posture. This allows them to pay close attention to how their body feels at any given time and learn to listen to its signals.

Yoga Flow captures the fluidity of Ashtanga yoga and the precision of Iyengar yoga. It is a dynamic method of yoga, connecting poses smoothly and fluidly, harmonizing breath and movement through enjoyable flowing sequences. The practice builds strength, flexibility, balance and breath control, connecting mind and body gracefully.
Yin Yoga is the oldest form of Hatha yoga. Typically it is practiced in order to open the hip, chest and shoulders preparing for a seated meditation practice. This is entirely a "passive" more gentle form of yoga where postures are held for several minutes to open up the muscles, joints, ligaments and lengthen the connective tissue.
