Yoga literally means ‘connection’, its main purpose being unifying the body, mind and soul. The positions in Yoga make the body supple and powerful and promote your concentration. In a Yoga class, a lot of attention is given to relaxation and a positive mind-set. All you need are comfortable clothing and an open attitude! The classes are given in groups and the instructors have all had long-term training and the necessary experience, so care and quality are guaranteed.

Natural Movement is a meditation through movement; a search for power through gentleness, body and motion awareness.

We go in search of the physical possibilities of your body and you move yourself away from your comfort zone, with great pleasure. Natural Movement is yoga without a mat and is suitable for everyone.
