They are dedicated and profound. Their yoga classes are specifically designed and each class has benefits for different purpose yet all classes complement each class. Initially I was doing only Hatha and Yin yoga. With online classes I experienced all types of classes and I realised that all classes meant to be practised equally. The founder and teachers are just amazing and I am grateful for every class that I practise. Most importantly they maintain the quality of classes. So you can trust them to go for a long term practice.
