*This info is to help you make an educated choice about the right class for you
-Every class is 60 min (except Classic Level 2, which is 90 min) but may be expanded by 10-15 min.
-Class, like an orchestra's performance, there is a connection through the flowing.  For a greater satisfaction and effect, don't miss the beginning and ending rest time.
-Before class starts, watch your condition and emotional state today. Also, if you have a disease or injury, tell the teacher immediately.
-So that your body can rest and so that you are comfortable during practice, wear lose and light clothes :) More than anything, come with an open mind. Forget the things from yesterday, let go of your depressed state today. From yesterday's worries and anxieties, come back to here and now. Open your heart, so that this time that you chose becomes a chance for you to grow and transform. Into the special break that Ayurveda gives to only you ~

Classic Yoga- All level
Ayurveda's Signature program! It is based on traditional yoga, Tantrism, and it consists of about 20 important postures, which are the very basic among the 84,000,000 yoga asanas that exist. You can improve your strength to allow you to find your BodyMind balance on your own through a repeated regular practice. The easy postures have strong healing effects. Body scan and Chakra tuning at the beginning of class lead the practitioner from the complex outside world to the special healing space of yoga by awakening body sensation, and bringing consciousness back inside. During the breathing practice time, with Ayurveda's 15 years of know-how, we can watch the energy flow of our body and subtle parts of the mind.
We recommend this class for yoga beginners and practitioners who want a deep taste of traditional yoga, yoga teachers who want traditional Hatha yoga practice after practicing modern yoga techniques.

Allow your exhausted BodyMind to stop for a while and experience self-healing in deep relaxation that brings you the possibility of infinite transformation, like: a comfortable mind, moments of no-thinking according to the experiences of yogis.
Firm- steady. The repetition of the long-holding of several important Classic yoga postures, focusing awareness on sensation of the body, and learning proper usage of the body are the goals of this class.
