Our Philosophy

Our teaching has a spiritual focus, encouraging stillness in the body and mind and connection to the self. We offer our students a safe environment in which to explore:

  • A personally challenging Hatha yoga practice focused on the needs and abilities of each individual and anchored in ahimsa (the yogic principle of non-harming)
  • Connection  to the power of the  breath
  • Meditation, mindfulness and reflection
  • Exploration of the philosophical, spiritual  and energetic practices  of Yoga in a way which engages with and honours all spiritual traditions
  • Connection to the continuing cycles of nature

“Yoga balances, harmonizes, purifies and strengthens the body, mind and soul. It shows the way to perfect health, perfect mind control and perfect peace with one’s own self, the world, nature …” Swami Vishnudevananda

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.” BKS Iyengar.
