Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.
Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.

All levels. Yoga Nidra means Yogic sleep; a state of conscious deep sleep where we learn to relax consciously. This class is deep relaxation with an inner state of awareness, which has been found to reduce stress, tension and anxiety. It is beneficial for insomnia and to calm symptoms of chronic pain, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, autoimmune disease and has been shown to help those in recovery from addiction. Yoga Nidra also helps calm and clear the mind and has potential to provide emotional healing--restoring our body senses and mind to their natural functions. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours of sleep.

"Yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between human and nature; a holistic approach to heal and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature." - Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India
