At AYM Yoga School, we are on a journey together
You are seen and heard when you step through that door and onto your mat. This is so much more than exercise. This is a celebration of you as an individual and our community.
In AYM Yoga School’s daily drop-in classes, you can expect to gain a fundamental understanding of postures, learn sequentially, and receive explicit instruction. We are committed to helping you learn to honour your body and develop your capacity to connect with your inner wisdom.
Hatha Yoga is the most common and popular form of the ancient art of yoga, dating back more than 600 years. An ancient art that old must be granted the respect it deserves. Once integrated into your everyday life, Hatha Yoga will help you achieve a natural balance in your mind, body, and soul, leading to a richer, more enlightened approach to life. Many yoga enthusiasts attribute Hatha Yoga to better concentration, higher self-esteem, and healthy digestion.
Hatha derives from the ancient meaning ‘Ha’ for the sun and ‘Tha’ for the moon, insinuating that Hatha will lead to the balance between the solar system.
Astanga Yoga is an athletic yoga style considered by many to be the most advanced of the physical forms. The Astanga practice breaks down its elements to achieve a progression of understanding from Beginning to advanced levels. The whole practice requires moderate physical fitness and a willingness to work hard. Many people have experienced some form of yoga, but postural alignment details are generally lacking. To practice safely, new students, even though knowledgeable of some yoga, should start initially, minimizing the potential risk of injury.
Psychologically, Astanga Yoga develops the attributes of the warrior spirit, balancing strength with compassion and cultivation.
Meditation is a state in which a person can create a deep feeling of peace and calm within themselves. It is a state in which the mind is at ease and can release the unpleasant things experienced and relieve stress. In this state, the brain can alter the frequencies upon which it works and achieve relaxation.
The meditation classes at AYM Yoga School are down-to-earth and valuable, and the procedure is easy to learn and carry out. Our meditation class helps you maintain a more positive, peaceful, and creative attitude as you go about your day.
So, when you meditate, you can holistically reset yourself.

In yoga classes, students must often learn breathing techniques that help calm the spirit and focus the mind. With these techniques, you will be able to breathe fully, and there will be more oxygen going to your brain and throughout the other parts of the body. By practising yoga, you can do cardiovascular exercises for a more extended period since you will not be so quickly out of breath.
