Branches of Yoga

At Anahata, yoga is more than physical exercise, it is a way of being, a way of living, an attitude with life and towards life, a yogic lifestyle. Yoga provides the tools to live a balanced, grounded and more centred life. These potentials dwell within you. Discover a stronger foundation of your self, renewed energy and a broader perspective of possibilities for your life.

All modalities are not for everyone, but through exposure to many different approaches, each individual can experience a wholistic range of options suited to their body, mind and lifestyle.
