My Hatha Yoga Classes are a combination of Physical Yoga classical positions to release tension and build stamina and Static Stretching and breathing, Yoga Nidra / guided realxation.

Most classes only offer the physical postures, here I offer you specific practices weekly that will improve your overall physical health, mental health and emotional wellbeing. This often leads you to be able to make good life directives, choose healthier relationships and live in harmony with life. On this website you will find classes in Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga.
