Yoga is a way of life, it changes you and therefore changes the way you relate to other people and influence your environment.

Meditation creates an open space that is free from performance and competition; free from all striving for self-affirmation. A place where we stop fighting ourselves, which will then help us to explore our inner territory and point the way towards a meaningful and creative way of life. We take the time to observe breath and movement, the origin of thoughts and emotions. We practise with patience, care and attention, we become aware of the silence and space, which is the background to all action.
