One can not describe the value of yoga, one must experience it, B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga is a former Indian holistic system of exercises for the development of body, mind and consciousness. The combination of physical exercise, breathing, relaxation and meditation has a strong psychosomatic effect. The body is flexible and firm, the organs and glands are stimulated in their function, the mind is calmed, refreshed and trained. The subsequent deep relaxation and meditation help to find inner peace and serenity. Total Yoga helps to gain a more conscious, more positive outlook on life.
Anyone can practice yoga, regardless of age, mobility, lifestyle, religion or state of mind. Here, the exercises can be adapted to the trainee. The range of hatha yoga instruction ranges from quiet and static to dynamic and fluid, from gentle to vigorous.

Yoga means unity, harmony.

Hatha Yoga

Traditional hatha yoga is a holistic yogic path, including disciplines, postures (asana), purification procedures (shatkriya), gestures (mudra), breathing (pranayama), andmeditation. The hatha yoga predominantly practiced in the West consists of mostly asanas understood as physical exercises. It is also recognized as a stress-reducing practice.
Hatha yoga is one of the two branches of yoga that focuses on the physical culture, the other one being raja yoga. Both of these are commonly referred to as sadanga yoga, i.e., yoga of six parts ('sad' meaning six and 'anga' meaning limbs). Svatmarama emphasizes many times in his Hathapradipika text that there is no raja yoga without hatha yoga and no hatha yoga without raja yoga. The main difference is that raja yoga uses asanas mainly to get the body ready for prolonged meditation, and hence focuses more on the meditative asanas: Lotus Posture (padmasana), Accomplished Posture (siddhasana), Easy Posture (sukhasana) and Pelvic Posture (vajrasana). Hatha yoga utilizes not only meditative postures but also cultural postures. Similarly, raja yoga's use of pranayama is also devoid of extensive locks (bandha).
Rishikesh yoga is a non-proprietary form of hatha yoga in which the training focuses on preserving the health and wellness of the practitioner. Sivananda Yoga teachers are all graduates of the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course, and students widely range in age and degrees of ability. Unlike Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga's more athletic program involving Bandhas, Sivananda training revolves around frequent relaxation, and emphasizes full, yogic breathing.

Restorative yoga 

Restorative yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body. While some restorative yoga poses are beneficial to the entire body, others target specific parts of the body, such as the heart or the lungs.

Restorative Yoga is suitable for all ages, no matter how healthy or sick you are, anyone can join! You too!
