Yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind’ (Patanjali Yoga Sutras I.2.).

Following this definition of yoga, this class uses movement (asana) and breath (pranayama) to invigorate and strengthen the body in order to still the mind. Loosely based on the basic principles of Astanga yoga, but infused with elements from other traditions (Yin, Vinyasa Flow and Hatha), the class will help students establish the foundations of a yoga practice in a simple and accessible way. Nini aims to make everyone welcome to yoga, regardless or body type, gender, age or physical ability.

Since all poses can be modified according to the student’s needs, literally anyone can do yoga if they wish to! All you need is an open mind and the willingness to try. Although the class is aimed at beginners, anyone is welcome to join in
