Following our philosophy, we want to offer a place where guests can regain their whole being. All forms of Yoga practiced in the West can be classified as Hatha yoga. Hatha, simply put, encompasses all Yoga positions. Thus, all Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are part of the Hatha Yoga category. The term "hatha" can be translated in 2 ways: "the determined and strong" and "the natural balance between the sun (ha) and the moon (tha)". Hatha techniques are specially designed to align and calm your body, mind and soul, they precede meditation.
