This class begins on the first Monday of each month and is an introduction to yoga practices starting with Asanas for the body – postures to connect yourself to the physical, pranic and mental body. These movements allow our bodies to release accumulated tensions and tightness thereby creating a free flow of energy. Once the body is open, we work with Pranayama, using the breath as a doorway to the mind – to access deeper levels of the mind for relaxation and expansion of the vital energies of the body.

Yoga for Seniors (Free Class)
Monday to Friday, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Classes for seniors fosters a sense of community within the group. As one age, asanas provide the opportunity for creating mobility in all parts of the body to ensure that all systems within the bodywork optimally. Classes focus on areas such as the skeletal system and the digestive system – areas which traditionally need greater attention. Seniors are also encouraged to take part in other ashram activities and to participate in Karma Yoga. Yoga classes for Seniors are free of charge.
Instructions for participants to all classes:
- The practices are suitable for all levels of
flexibility and fitness
- Please wear comfortable clothing for ease of movement
- Ensure that you have not eaten for at least 2 hours
Every Saturday 6:00 am to 7:00 am
Shatkarmas refer to the six cleansing practices which are done for internal cleansing. The most common ones are Jala Neti or nasal wash, Kunjal Kriya or upper stomach wash and Laghoo Shankprakshalana or cleansing of the intestines. These practices help to balance the two main energy flows in the body thus bringing about physical and mental purification and balance.
