Originating in India, yoga is a practice that dates back thousands of years.Its aim is to promote physical, mental and energetic well-being.
Body and mind are harmonized through a combination of physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation and life philosophy.
Yoga is a practice that encourages the circulation of vital energy or ''prana'' for greater inner balance, serenity and vitality.Whatever the reason, yoga invites us to honour our bodies, our needs and our limits.
Hatha yoga is one of the traditional branches of yoga, emphasizing the union of body and mind through physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation. The term “Hatha” is derived from the words “Ha” meaning sun and “Tha” meaning moon, symbolizing the union of opposing energies.
Hatha yoga is distinguished by its balanced, gentle approach. It emphasizes stability, strength, flexibility and relaxation. Hatha yoga sessions are generally slower and more static than more dynamic styles of yoga. They offer a careful, detailed exploration of postures, with an emphasis on alignment, conscious breathing and body awareness.
Hatha yoga aims to harmonize body and mind by cultivating presence, concentration and mindfulness. It promotes relaxation, mental tranquility and energetic balance. Practitioners of Hatha Yoga learn to develop inner strength, emotional stability and mental clarity.
Yoga Hatha is a solid foundation for exploring other forms of yoga, and can serve as a foundation for developing a more advanced practice. It offers a holistic approach to well-being, encompassing body, breath and mind.
Yoga Flow, also known as Vinyasa Yoga, is a dynamic style of yoga characterized by a sequence of movements synchronized with the breath.
The postures (asanas) follow one another fluidly, creating a continuous, rhythmic movement.
Unlike other more static styles of yoga, where postures are held for longer periods, Yoga Flow is distinguished by its constant movement, creating an energizing and meditative experience, strengthening the body, improving flexibility and promoting concentration.
This fluidity of movement creates a sense of harmony between body and mind.
Yoga Flow can vary in intensity and rhythm depending on the teacher. Some Yoga Flow classes may be gentler and more accessible to beginners, while others may be faster and more demanding.
Restorative yoga is a gentle, soothing practice that aims to promote deep relaxation, healing and renewal of mind, body and soul. Unlike other more dynamic styles of yoga, restorative yoga focuses primarily on rest and restoration, allowing the body to relax and regenerate.
Restorative yoga sessions are generally characterized by gentle postures, supported by props such as cushions, blocks, blankets and straps. These props help to create a supportive environment where the practitioner can relax deeply and let go with a sense of letting go.
Restorative yoga postures are designed to relax muscles, open joints and promote better blood and lymph circulation. By adopting comfortable positions for long periods, the body releases accumulated tension and can enter a state of deep relaxation.
Restorative yoga also emphasizes conscious breathing and mindfulness. By focusing on slow, deep breathing, the practitioner connects with body and mind, putting aside stressful thoughts and everyday concerns. This promotes a state of inner calm and attentive presence.
Like Flow Yoga ,Hot Flow Yoga is a dynamic, fluid and energizing style of yoga, characterized by a sequence of movements synchronized with the breath.
The difference is that we practice in a room heated to 32 degrees. The heat relaxes the muscles and encourages sweating.
The combination of fluid movements, heat and deep breathing helps stimulate the cardiovascular system, eliminate toxins and promote an overall sense of well-being.
The heat creates an enveloping, comforting sensation.
It’s important to be well hydrated before, during and after the class.

Yin yoga is a style of yoga that focuses on gentle, prolonged stretching of the body’s connective tissues, such as ligaments, tendons and fascia. Unlike other, more dynamic styles of yoga, Yin Yoga involves holding poses for an extended period of time, usually 3 to 5 minutes or more.
Yin yoga is based on the principles of traditional Chinese yoga and Taoist philosophy, emphasizing deep relaxation, patience and awareness of the present moment. Yin yoga poses are often performed on the floor, and are designed to open up and release accumulated tension in the body.
The practice stimulates the body’s energy meridians, promoting energy balance and the free circulation of vital energy (Qi). It also helps to improve flexibility, restore joint mobility, calm the mind and promote deep relaxation.
Yin Yoga is often considered an ideal complement to more active styles of yoga, as it targets the deeper tissues of the body that may be neglected in other practices. It is beneficial for people with hectic lifestyles, for athletes seeking to improve recovery and for anyone wishing to find inner balance and deep relaxation.
Yin yoga requires a gentle approach that respects the body’s limits. Poses should be held comfortably, without forcing or creating excessive pain.
As its name suggests, this form of yoga is specifically adapted to the needs of people over 60, although anyone of any age can come and take this class. This form of yoga focuses on maintaining flexibility, strength, balance and mobility, taking into account physical particularities and possible age-related limitations.
This class respects each individual’s pace and capacities. Postures (asanas) are adapted to take account of stiff joints, less flexible muscles and the sensitivity of participants. Breathing exercises (pranayama) are integrated to promote relaxation, improve concentration and enhance vitality.
As well as helping to improve flexibility, joint mobility and muscle strength, this practice can help prevent falls and maintain physical independence. On a mental and emotional level, yoga can help reduce stress, calm the mind and promote an overall sense of well-being, while enhancing quality of life.
It’s important to note that Yoga 60+ can be practised by people of all fitness levels and yoga experience.
