Traditional yoga & breathing - Gopio

Pranayama is one of the important vital components of Yoga that directly or indirectly affects the proper functioning of different systems of the body.  If you practice pranayama regularly, it shows beneficial impacts upon respiratory system, circulatory system, digestive system and endocrine system. Pranayama ensures more oxygen to lungs and good for hearts too. Pranayama tones up kidney and control the functions of nervous system. Kumbhaka or retention of breath helps supply of oxygen or exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide thus facilitates better work of lungs and helps brain to work more efficiently.  Pranayama affects autonomic nervous system which controls heart rate, glandular secretions, respiration, digestion and blood pressure.

Vilakshan Yog- DJJS

Surya Namaskara is a Yoga warm up routine based on a sequence of gracefully linked asanas. The nomenclature refers to the symbolism of Sun as the soul and the source of all life.

Sri Sri Yoga - The Art of Living

Sri Sri Yoga is a pure and authentic form of yoga. A complete yoga discipline, in Sri Sri Yoga, the wisdom and techniques of Yoga are brought to you in a very joyful and thorough manner. A combination of gentle and vigorous series of asanas is taught for the well-being of the body, while an equal emphasis is placed on techniques for nurturing the mind and spirit.

Sirsasana and Vilakshan Yog (Advanced) - DJJS

Sirsasana is an advanced inversion that exhibits strength, control and the beauty of overcoming the fear of falling through physical and mental balance. Sirsasana is considered the most important inversion and is often referred to as the “king” of asanas. This full inversion returns blood to the heart and the brain, refreshing the cardiovascular and lymphatic system and providing energizing effects for the whole body.

Vinyasa - YogandYou

In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga, and Prana Flow could all be considered vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa is also the term used to describe a ​specific ​sequence of poses (Chaturanga to Upward-Facing Dog to Downward-Facing Dog​)​ commonly used throughout a vinyasa class​.

Yin Yoga - Shri Yoga

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, that are held for longer periods of time - for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body - with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

In winter the earth stills and quiets. To live in harmony with nature means living in harmony with ourselves. With this in mind we can use this introspective season as a time to restore and repair ourselves. In the stillness of yin poses we experience what its like of to let go, to put down all our overdoing, and live more in harmony with nature. Bring warm socks & and a light layer (towel, shawl, blanket). No previous Yin yoga experience required.
