Yogic Life classes
Yoga for beginners offers people the chance to take 90 minutes for themselves out of a busy schedule. Straightaway students are given a toolkit of practices they can take away and use at home. Attending a yoga class once a week will bring change and benefits, however this process is further accelerated at any level when yoga is practised regularly between classes.

The Bihar School of Yoga in Northern India was founded in 1964 by Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati to impart yogic training to householders and sannyasins alike. The Yoga techniques developed there are a synthesis of many approaches to personal development, based on traditional vedantic, tantric and yogic teachings in conjunction with contemporary physical and mental health sciences.
