Etiquette

In the spirit of supporting your practice as well as that of your fellow Yogis we ask that you follow a few guidelines to help make everyone's practice more fruitful.

  • Wear comfortable clothing that allow you to move freely. Remove jewelry and wrist watch.
  • Yoga is practiced barefoot. Remove shoes before entering the maloca (the yoga shala). Enter the maloca with clean feet.
  • Please be very mindful of noise. Switch off your phone and other devices that can cause distraction before entering the maloca. We also request that you be mindful of noise when near the maloca. Many students take the time before class to unwind, release their day and practice meditative contemplation. When speaking with others near and inside the maloca, please be aware and respectful of those who are choosing to spend this time in silence by keeping your voice low, and avoiding any unnecessary noise.
  • Bring a light blanket or sarong to keep warm during the final relaxation and a hand towel if you tend to perspire.
  • Yoga is practiced on an empty stomach. It is recommended not to eat two hours prior to class but if you are hungry, you can eat fruit one hour before class. Do not bring food to the maloca. Bring a water bottle.
  • Classes start on time. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the class. For the peace of the entire class, late comers will not be admitted once the class has begun.
  • Communicate your health problems or injuries to the teacher before class begins. You are responsible for respecting your limits and your own pace to avoid injury.
  • Avoid using perfumes and scented hair and body products to class as they can distract others from their practice and their breathing.
  • If using props such as mats, blocks and straps please return them to the shelf in the way that you found them. If you have used one of our yoga mats please spray and wipe it and then return it to the shelf.

Hatha yoga

This course is designed to learn and strengthen the basics of Hatha yoga to establish a solid foundation for your practice. The emphasis is put on the basic principles of body alignment that make your practice safe. The focus is on standing poses. The postures are demonstrated and taught with precision and learning is progressive. Postures are maintained a while in order to improve body awareness and muscle tone. Yoga props are used to improve alignment in the postures.

Yoga flow

Yoga flow is a creative style of Hatha yoga where the postures flow together like a dance with the breath. Yoga flow classes are physically challenging. Good body awareness is a must to make this practice safe. This practice is for experienced yogis and yoginis.

Gentle yoga

Gentle yoga is a style of yoga that is less strenuous than other forms of hatha yoga. In gentle yoga classes simple yoga postures and breathing exercises are practiced to achieve a state of wellbeing. The classes focus mostly on floor-supported postures (seated, on hands and knees, lying down) working movement and stillness, activating muscles and joints, creating space in different parts of the body and most of all creating a deep sense of relaxation. Through gentle movements combined with plenty of time to focus on breathing, one achieves a meditative state that helps relax body and mind.


Gentle yoga classes are appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow paced and relaxing practice. No yoga experience is required. Gentle yoga is accessible to participants of all levels of yoga, in particular, seniors, practitioners who are recovering from injury, as well as those practitioners who are in poor physical condition and those who are simply looking for a more relaxed workout.

Restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is a delightful practice. It is the yoga of deep and conscious relaxation. It is the yoga of "being" rather than a yoga of "doing". It is based on a series of postures during which the body is completely supported (by props and the floor) and each posture is held for a period of 5 to 20 minutes. This practice allows the muscles to relax completely and the body to "sink" into the pose. As the body adapts to the posture, the nervous system enters a state of relaxation, peace and of deep inner healing. When one reaches this level of relaxation the immune system is activated and the body begins to heal. Appropriate to all levels.


Accessible to participants of levels
