Let’s bend, so we don’t break physically and mentally
Yoga is not necessarily standing upside down, or twisting our body in weird positions; it is neither for reducing belly fat or ceasing away some pain in the body. The word “yoga” means union, bringing harmony between mind and body. Yoga joins physical activities, meditation and breathing exercises to gather the body and the mind. Yoga is also commonly understood as a therapy or exercise system for health and fitness. While physical and mental health is the natural consequences of yoga, the goal of yoga is more far-reaching.
Sivananda Yoga: relax and practice positive thinking
Sivananda yoga (name of its inventor) was created in India in the 1960’s. Nowadays, this discipline is known everywhere around the world. This practice is based on 5 fundamental principles. The postures or asanas help the body to be flexible, help for a better circulation of the blood and stimulate certain parts of the body often left aside. Breathing exercises, meditation and a healthy diet are also very important in this discipline because they complete the postures.
The combination of meditation and physical exercise is essential for this discipline but there is one more fundamental principle: the positive thinking. Through the regular practice of Sivananda yoga, you will incorporate serenity and calm in your daily life. It will also help you to keep your problems in perspective. In other words, this yoga is beneficial for the body and for the brain in the same time!
At SITA, yoga is for everyone!
With our yoga teachers, if you cannot do certain postures or keep it during a long time, don’t worry! They will adapt the postures to your level. It is the same for people used to do yoga. Our goal is that every participant does yoga at their own pace and find the correct placement adapted for its own body. We don’t propose a fitness class, there is no competition and everyone respects its own body. Pretty cool and comforting, right?

At SITA, we propose morning and evening sessions to practice during sunrise and sunset. The classes will start with soft postures, then sun salutations, a set of 12 postures with multiple benefits.
