Class Descriptions
Private Yoga Classes
We offer tailor-made private classes of up to three people and the instructor for beginners and busy individuals who want more privacy and special, attentive instruction. Private Yoga and Dance Classes are held in our private studios.

Andiappan Yoga (Self-Practice)

As taught by Guruji Dr. Asana Andiappan in his yoga school in India, this class is open to yoga practitioners of all levels, particularly those who are interested in improving their postures and developing a discipline of self-practice on their own. Each class starts with a series of warm-up sequences and then followed with students' self-practice. Students execute poses at their own pace under the supervision of a teacher, who assists them individually through verbal instructions and by making physical adjustments. This enables students to make significant improvements to their poses, and also helps them develop a simple routine based on their flexibility. The class’ close-knit and intimate teacher-student environment is ideal for self-practice. For this class, students may arrive any time within the one and a half hour-class.

Andiappan Yoga (B)

A science-based sequence of 34 asanas and four breathing techniques developed by Guruji Asana Andiappan after decades of rigorous research on yoga therapy for various ailments, based on the seminal Yogic text Thirumoolar's Thirumandiram. Specially designed to focus on balancing the tridhosha (Vata, Pita and Kapha) in our body, this sequence enables one to improve their flexibility, strength, coordination, mental concentration and relaxation. This practice also helps stimulate the dormant Pranas (energies) and rejuvenate the Nadis (energy channels) in our body. 

Andiappan Yoga  - Advanced Series 1 focuses on the practice of intermediate-level asanas, targeted toward regular yoga practitioners to challenge their limits. A minimum 6 months of regular yoga practice is required to attend this class.

Andiappan Yoga -  Sun Salutation Series

Sun salutation is good practice for people of all ages, especially for beginners. The traditional sun salutation sequence has one to two variations, and therefore does not address all body movements. Guruji Andiappan has developed a sun salutation series addressing beginner to advanced levels of yoga practices to engage a variety of body movements. Specially designed for busy working professionals and frequent travellers, this series is divided into 12 different sequences. Six sequences for beginners, three for intermediate-level practitioners and three for advanced practitioners. The regular practice of this sun salutation series is a good form of cardio workout, toning up the body and improving blood circulation. The simple routines are for both children and adults to enjoy. 

Andiappan Yoga - Pavanamuktasana Series

The word pavana means 'wind' and 'energy', while muktameans 'freeing' or 'liberating.' Developed by Guruji Dr. Asana Andiappan, this series is targeted for the elderly, and can also be applied as rehabilitative therapy for patients suffering from acute ailments and diseases. The Pavanamuktasana series includes a sequence of 50 simple breathing techniques combined with fluid body movements from head to toe that engage different joints in the body. These help improve a person's range of movement and blood circulation, as well as alleviate muscle and joint stiffness and remove blockages in energy channels throughout the body. The practice is suitable for all age groups and can be executed even on a bed. For decades, the Pavanamuktasana series has been applied to many patients suffering from various diseases - breast cancer, heart conditions, kidney disorders, arthritis, and osteoporosis - and has brought about amazing effects to the mind and body. Even regular practitioners doing advanced yoga can partake in the Pavanamuktasana series for a good warm-up routine before an intensive session, as well as for a cool-down routine to soothe the muscles and joints, preventing injuries throughout the entire yoga practice.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Series 1
The classical form of power yoga as taught in its traditional sequence, Ashtanga Vinyasa is a method of yoga that synchronizes breathing with a progressive series of postures that detoxifies the body and helps tone body-firming muscles, resulting in improved circulation, a strong yet light body, and a calmed mind. Series 1 of Ashtanga Vinyasa particularly includes shortened primary and finishing sequences.
Back Care Yoga
This class involves a sequence of yoga postures and alignment techniques that strengthen back muscles and help attain a proper posture, preventing and resolving back problems. The class is specifically designed for travellers and executives who spend long hours sitting in one position and are prone to lower back pain and stiffness.
Chikitsa Yoga (Yoga Therapy)
This class helps prevent, as well as cure to a certain extent, common physical ailments related to the joints, digestive system, respiratory system, and nervous system - all for healthier living.
Core Yoga
Core muscles are a very important group of muscles that help prevent various back and neck problems. Sports like golf, weightlifting, spinning, and water sports all require strong core muscles, which our Core Yoga classes aim to develop.
Destress Yoga
Yoga is arguably the best way to reduce stress; Destress Yoga, in particular, focuses on deep relaxation, breathing exercises (Pranayama), meditation, and restorative postures that are proven to instantly relieve stress.
Detox Yoga
As its name implies, Detox Yoga focuses on postures and breathing exercises with body-detoxifying qualities. It is a form of yoga that massages the body’s internal glands and organs by gently stretching muscles and joints. This ensures optimum blood supply to various parts of the body and helps flush out toxins, resulting in the long-term benefits of delayed ageing and a stronger immune system.
Flow Yoga
Open to yoga practitioners of all ages and skill levels, Flow Yoga is a full mind-body workout that connects various Hatha yoga asanas (postures) with synchronised breathing. Those who suffer from stiff joints and struggle to hold poses for an extended period of time will greatly benefit from the consistent movement involved in this class.
Hatha Yoga

The word ‘Hatha’ is a compound of the words Ha and Tha, which mean ‘sun’ and ‘moon.’ Hatha Yoga is one of two main branches of yoga that focuses on the physical culture. It offers a good introduction to the basic yoga poses, which attempt to balance the mind and body through asanas (physical exercises), controlled breathing, relaxation, and meditation. Asanas teach pose, balance, and strength, and are practised to improve the body’s physical health and clear the mind, in preparation for meditation in the pursuit of enlightenment.

Hatha Yoga (B) is for all, while (M) and (A) require at least 3 to 6 months of regular yoga practice.

Hatha Vinyasa

‘Hatha’ is a Sanskrit term for the balance between the sun and the moon. It refers to the two polarities that exist within every individual - such as that between top and bottom, left and right; that between our strength against our flexibility, and our mind compared to our emotions; even that of our sense of surrender against our quest for control.

Hatha Vinyasa is a rigorous, dynamic discipline aimed to free us from physical tension. It explores a wide range of poses for increased vitality, strength, balance, and mental focus. A special attention is given to postural alignment, muscle lengthening, and healthy joint mobility. Taking up Hatha Vinyasa, one can expect an active and stimulating session where they may develop grace and poise, and enjoy the longer-term benefit of toning their muscles and overall figure.

Kids Yoga
Anahata Yoga has specially developed a sequence of yoga postures for kids, which are taught in a playful environment that encourages them to use their natural flexibility. The class has been designed to help improve children’s health, concentration, memory, and confidence, as well as enhance their mind-body coordination and performance in other sports.
Kundalini Yoga
Best described as ‘Yoga of Awareness,’ Kundalini Yoga focuses on stimulating and activating the dormant energy force in the human body. It helps develop intuition, increase self-knowledge, and unlock our unlimited creative potential. A sequence of meditative postures (asanas), breathing and energy expansion techniques (Pranayamas), and concentration and meditative techniques (Dharana and Dhyana) are practised to awaken the dormant energy centres (Chakras) inside of us, that we may reach higher levels of consciousness and experience an endless supply of energy. A minimum of 6-8 months of regular meditation practice and experience is required to take this class.
Patanjali Yoga

Sage Patanjali penned the ancient Indian Heritage of Yoga through his treatise, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The Patanjali Yoga system aims to unite the individual self with the Supreme One. According to Patanjali, one can attain this union by controlling and eliminating the ever-arising vrittis, or modifications of the mind. He also suggests that the mind, in turn, can be controlled through the right kind of discipline and training.

This class teaches practical methods for awakening and expanding the higher faculties of the mind, intellect, and consciousness. It explores the true potential of our mind beyond the limits of time and space, and guarantees a transcendental experience.

Prana Yoga

Prana is the physical, mental, intellectual, spiritual, and cosmic energy that makes a life force. We have 10 types of Pranas in our body; out of all 10, there are 5 major types of Pranas responsible for various Pranic activities in the body. These are: Prana, Apana, Vyana, Udana, and Samoan. Out of these 5, Prana and Apana are the most important. According to ancient yogic text, the practice of Prana Yoga increases the level of Prana (energy) and regulates the flow of Pranic energy throughout the body, resulting in higher states of awareness as well as a healthier body and mind. Prana Yoga includes different kinds of cleansing (Kriyas) and breathing (Pranayama) techniques that activate our energy centres (Chakras).

Prenatal Yoga
This class, conducted in a calm and peaceful environment, is specifically designed for pregnancy. It links yoga postures with breathing techniques that enhance awareness of the mind, body, and spirit, as well as that of your new baby, and also help strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid digestion, exercise the spine, and increase overall comfort. Through the class, one can relieve many of the discomforts that come with pregnancy, such as nausea, constipation, varicose veins, swelling, back pain, and sciatica.
Power Flow
Power Flow is an energetic type of yoga with a dynamic sequence of postures. The consistent flow of movement it involves strengthens and tones the entire body, and dissolves bodily tension while building integrated and flexible strength. Power Flow is ideal for those who enjoy a vigorous and challenging workout. It produces great results, and is open to practitioners of all levels.
Power Yoga

Power Yoga is a unique system of yoga that delivers a challenging physical workout. It combines sun salutation with standing postures, forward bends, backward bends, and twists for a complete yogic workout that increases the strength of the body and mind, bringing out the power we have within.

Power Yoga (B) is for beginners seeking to improve strength and Vinyasa movements. Power Yoga (M) is for practitioners who are proficient in Vinyasa movements and knowledge, and regularly practice Power Yoga.

Restorative Yoga
Restorative Yoga relaxes the mind and body with restful postures that help trigger the Parasympathetic nervous system responsible for balancing the body, bringing its response system back into equilibrium. Students get into certain poses with the help of props and wall support, after which they can surrender their mind and body to the pose. Restorative Yoga is ideal for people with medical illness and injuries. (Note: Not all props are used in every class.)
Satyananda Yoga

Satyananda Yoga is a relaxing form of yoga that combines the techniques of Hatha Yoga (asanas, Pranayamas, mudras, Bandhas) and Raja Yoga (Yoga of Meditation), creating a balanced approach to practice. It is highly recommended to those who wish to achieve better physical health and mental peace, especially in today’s increasingly stressful world.

Satyananda (B) is a beginners’ class open to all ages and skill levels. Satyananda (M) is a multi-level class for yoga practitioners with at least 6 months of regular practice.

Slimming Yoga
Slimming Yoga helps improve digestion and, therefore, eliminate constipation, water retention, and bloating. It also helps improve blood circulation to major endocrine glands (such as thyroid and pancreas) that control the appetite, moods, and sleep patterns. Further, Slimming Yoga helps tone, lengthen, and strengthen the muscles, ultimately sculpting the body.
Sun Vinyasa
Sun Vinyasa is a class that offers a step-by-step guide to perfecting the sun salutations with postures that improve cardio strength, flexibility, and the endurance to burn fat in a good yogic workout.
Yin Yoga
Most forms of Yoga practiced today are Yang, which emphasizes muscular movement and contraction. By contrast, Yin Yoga targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Yin postures are held anywhere between 3, to 5, to 10 minutes at a time. The intention of Yin Yoga is to stimulate circulation in less-flexible areas, typically in the joints closest to the core of the body: the hips, lower back, and sacrum area. It is based on the ancient Chinese philosophy that the connective tissues in the body serve as a passageway for the flow of vital, life-giving energy that nourishes the organs. When this energy stagnates or becomes blocked, the body becomes vulnerable to illness and injury. By increasing circulation, Yin Yoga encourages energy flow in the body. Moreover, Yin Yoga is a nourishing practice with similar effects on the body and mind as those of acupuncture. It is ideal for those who are trying yoga for the first time.
Yin Yang
Yin Yang Yoga is the combination of both Yin and Power Yoga. The class starts off with basic postures that involve deep stretching and hip opening, and then moves on to powerful and dynamic movements that affect the connective tissues of the body, bringing about balance, strength, and flexibility. Toward the end, relaxation techniques are done to cultivate a peaceful and meditative mind. Yin Yang Yoga is open to practitioners of all skill levels.
