RYS 200 Yoga Alliance
We are a team of qualified and experienced professional instructors, being here to share proper alignments and techniques of yoga asanas (physical yoga posture).
We believe that yoga is a process of inner journey and ascent of consciousness. By blending body and soul, meshing the physical with mental and spiritual in the most complex ways, the science of yoga unfolds the infinite potentials of the human body, mind and soul to imbibe the complete essence of The Way of Life.
Thus, by imbibing and upholding the science and philosophy of yoga, along with a series of simple act – ‘Pleasant words, kind deeds and good intentions’, in Yoga Moment, we guide you to discover Your Way of Life.
