The scientific and easy-to-learn exercises provide a practical, natural and holistic way to achieve health and vitality. Yoga is not a religion. Anyone from any faith can practice the techniques.
Yoga and fasting go hand in hand
The yoga classes are suited to people of all levels. The combination of gentle moving, stretching and twisting together with deep breathing, speeds up the detox process. Through the practice of yoga one can find an inner peace and stillness, which reduces the toxic effects of stress and anxiety. Often during a fast, when the putrefied deposits are being eliminated from the system, old and sometimes forgotten emotions may surface. Yoga can help to deal with these.
Today’s life is full of stress. Although we have reached a high level of increasing tension and fatigue.

There is more to Yoga than asanas. Meditation is a systematic and scientific way to gently focus the mind. The body’s response to meditation is just the opposite of its reaction to stress. The regular practice of meditation broadens the scope of your mind, helping you to develop a keener sense of intuition and a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. People who meditate typically experience a state of deep inner peace and harmony, which in turn leads to more intense and lasting feelings of happiness and fulfillment.
There are many forms of meditation, but the meditation taught at our Yoga Wellness Center is based on the principle “as you think so you become”. In meditation one should concentrate one’s mind on a positive and uplifting thought. If one does this on a regular basis it leads to a profound state of peace and harmony.
Our instructors, who have years of experience, will show you how to meditate using proven techniques that will enable you to withdraw your mind from the distractions of the “outside” world and concentrate within.
Meditation quiets the central nervous system, lowers blood pressure by as much as 20% and has a profound effect on physical health. In addition the regular practice of meditation builds up a person’s capacity to pay attention and learn anything, making it the best form of mental exercise.
As the mind is drawn within we experience a deeper sense of peace and harmony with life by concentrating on the infinite. With a calm body, a controlled mind and a blissful spirit, we become more ideal human beings, who are ready to render dynamic social service to the world.
