At Sattva Yoga, a complete yoga practice comprises centering, breathing techniques (Pranayama), gentle stretches (Joint-Freeing & Somatic Movement), flowing (Vinyasa) & static poses (Asana & Pilates), meditation, deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra) and reflection. The breathing techniques revitalize & cleanse the body, as well as focusing the attention inward. The postures stretch, tone and strengthen muscles, joints, and spine: they also stimulate internal organs, glands, and nerves. By releasing physical and mental tensions, the postures liberate the body’s vast resources of energy. The practice of meditation brings increased clarity and inner peace.
