What to expect? 

Becoming stronger is rewarding both physically and mentally. It has a positive effect on your confidence and influences how you face challenges in daily life.

We recommend that you practise 2 classes per week for 3 weeks. If you find a particular class challenging, then repeat this class. It may help you to decide beforehand which days you would like to practice and mark that time in your schedule.

In this 6 part program, you'll learn to develop your strength from the inside. You will feel more like you are doing a work-IN than a work-OUT.  Tap into your inner strength, wisdom and intelligence and transform your whole being.

  • Class 1: Core 
    We work from easy standing poses and link them to specific exercises and actions to train your core muscles and become stronger.
  • Class 2: Legs
    Using the most precious tool - your body - to create your own resistance, you will feel how a certain intelligence awakens in your legs to create space, stability and strength.
  • Class 3: Core - the Bandhas
    We need to connect our entire body in order to create steadfast strength. Explore the connection between the legs and the core with the Bandhas.  
  • Class 4: Hip stability
    To build sustainable strength in our body we need stability. This class will give you tools to stabilise your hips, improving the muscle strength of your abdomen.
  • Class 5: Upper back
    A thorough practice to build strength in the upper back. You will also learn the importance of integrating your legs in order to safely access the upper back.
  • Class 6: Shoulders
    Support your own body weight from your shoulders in a safe way. Learn how you need to create space in the joints first before awakening the strength in your shoulders.
