Hatha Yoga with Bala

Yoga is a life style which allows us to balance our physical and mental health. In our yoga class we will concentrate on Asanas, Pranayama and Meditation. Morning classes will be dynamic and we will use the principles of Hatha and Vinyasa practices, concentrating on movement and flow. Instead, the evening class will be more restorative and relaxed, based on Sivananda style Hatha Yoga. However, every class is organic and the structure of the session will evolve depending on the group of practitioners in that particular class. We will strengthen & relax each and every part of our body: mainly core, hips etc.

These classes do not require advance registration (drop-in) and they are suitable for beginner to intermediate level students. The cost is Rs. 400 for guests, we offer a 50 % discount for Auroville volounteers, and on donation for Aurovilians & Auroville New Comers. If you need more information, you can contact directly Bala by phone or Whatsapp (+91 9892699804) or write to joycommunity@auroville.org.in.
