Phangan Yoga Classes
Our Yoga Shala is fully equipped with Yoga mats and props to holistically facilitate all styles and levels of Yoga, from beginners to advanced students.
Yoga House is in a magical setting with beautiful gardens, surrounded by lush coconut groves and a tranquil stream. We are conveniently located in Bantai.
We offer the following Yoga classes at Yoga House:
Ashtanga Yoga ~
a traditional Yoga system, as taught by Guru-ji Sri K Pattabhi Jois. This dynamic style of Yoga has the power to transform through a detoxifying internal heat, that purifies the body and the mind. At the root of Ashtanga Vinyasa (breath and movement system) is a strong focus on integrating the subtle energy of Ujjayi Pranayama (victorious breath), Bandha (energy valve / lock) and Drishti (looking point)
Deep Flow Yoga ~
a deep Vinyasa (flowing) Yoga journey with an emphasis on alignment, guided towards a more gentle Yin (restorative) ending, creatively sequenced to an eclectic mix of inspirational music.
Yoga Philosophy ~
a study of the more subtle and spiritual path of Yoga, with a focus on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali including the 8 Limbed Yoga Path and Samkya concepts of Purusa (soul / pure consciousness) and Prakriti (nature / matter), the Krisnamacharya Yoga lineage and the origins of Ashtanga Yoga, subtle aspects of the Ashtanga Yoga practice such as Vinyasa (breath and movement system), Ujjayi Pranayama (victorious breath), Bandha (energy valve / lock) and Drishti (looking point), Prana (lifeforce) and the Vayus (movements of lifeforce), the Nadis (energy channels) and Chakras (energy vortexes), the Koshas (layers of the body), Hindu mythology and Sanskrit chanting
Pranayama and Mantra ~
a candle lit evening class, inspired to guide our senses inward towards the gentle circulation and resonance of sacred lifeforce. Pranayama is the expansion and control of vital lifeforce, and involves various breathing techniques that assist in soothing our nervous system. Mantra is the use of sacred sound vibration, through chanting from ancient Sanskrit texts, to heighten our personal and collective energetic vibration.
once per Month we offer our students an opportunity to intimately deepen their exploration of a specific aspect of Yoga though a 3 hour long class. Kindly ask about the upcoming date and topic at our receptions desk.
