Dynamische Hatha Yoga

Middels het lichaam en de prãna kunnen wij op een subtiele en tegelijk op een dynamische manier onze state of mind beïnvloeden en beheersen. Ons lichaam als innerlijke expressie blootgesteld aan een dagelijkse tsunami van prikkels, proberen wij de balans te vinden tussen de innerlijke rust en de wereld. Deze dynamische Yoga is een instrument welke je dichterbij bij je eigen bron van rust en kracht brengt.
