Hatha Yoga was introduced by Yogi Swatmarama in the 15th century in India, it is one of the prominent types of Yoga. Hatha Yoga is the origin of many other styles of Yoga. The word 'hatha', derived from Sanskrit, means the combination of the opposites - ha (meaning Sun) and tha (meaning Moon). It unites the positive (Sun) and negative (Moon) currents in the system. It is mainly concentrated on the third (Asana) and fourth (Pranayams) in the Eight Limbs of Yoga. It aims to attain a balance between the body and mind, through the physical postures of Asanas, purification procedures (Shatkriyas), poses (Mudras), yogic breathing (Pranayams) and meditation. It also aims to pacify the mind through relaxation and meditation techniques.
This class is open to all.


Ashtanga is a system of yoga made popular by Pattabhi Jois. Linking breath and movement, students move through a set sequence of asanas that purify, strengthen and give flexibility to the body. Ashtanga is a dynamic and spiritual practice all at once.

Yoga Synergy

Yoga Synergy is based on a deep and sound knowledge of anatomy and physiology, modern medical science and traditional hatha yoga.

Established by Simon Borg Olivier & Bianca Machliss in 1984.

The style of Yoga synergy yoga is hatha yoga based derived from the work of Professor T. Krishnamacharya. Sri Krishnamacharya was the teacher of three very influential yoga masters: Sri B.K.S. Iyengar (author of Light on Yoga); Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (who developed Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga); and Sri T.K.V. Desikachar (author of The Heart of Yoga).

This unique style incorporates asanas (poses and postures), vinyasa(dynamic exercises that combine movement with breath), pranayama (breath control) and meditation. It’s a dynamic moving meditation that links postures with breath.
