 Yoga 

Yoga is a mind and body practice with a 5,000-year history in ancient Indian philosophy. Various styles of yoga combine physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation and relaxation. 

Benefits of yoga:

● Improves flexibility, strength and posture

● Reduces stress

● Increases energy

● Help you to become more mindful

● Improves concentration 

● And much more..

Hatha Yoga 

is a gentle practice with the basic yoga postures.

Yin Yoga 

is a slow-paced yoga style in which poses are held for longer with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. 

Yoga Nidra 

a guided meditation and conscious relaxation practice that aims to induce total physical, mental and emotional relaxation.


Natural Movement 

Have you seen how young children play and move their agile bodies in every imaginable way?

This skill often gets forgotten when we get older. Old injuries, a lot of sitting and weakness in forgotten muscles makes our body's achy and stiff.

In natural movement we move our body in a natural way to strengthen and mobilize our whole body from toes to head! Unlock power, strength, balance and body awareness to find new energy!

You'll learn skills you can include in your exercise regime, use when you play with your kids, and get a body you can feel comfortable and proud in!

Practice these exercises safely under the guidance of a teacher. Antonia understands the importance of conditioning before exercise and getting back to a relaxed state afterwards. This way you'll get the most out of your practice.

"You don't stop playing when you get old. You get old when you stop playing!"
