Yoga Banner 1140x520px ENFR

Discover the benefits of classical yoga through a basic routine and be introduced to the five points of yoga that lead to wellness, according to Swami Vishnudevananda: Proper Exercise (asanas), Proper Breathing (pranayama), Proper Relaxation (savasana ), Proper Diet (vegetarian), Positive thinking and Meditation (vedanta and dhyana).

The practice of classical yoga involves a holistic approach. It shows us how to balance and harmonize the body, mind and soul, so that we can have a healthy body, a balanced mind and experience the inner peace that is already within. It also gives us the ability to remain calm and focused when confronted with the daily challenges of modern life.
