Find your inner roar with Lion Yoga. I'm a lion and so are you!
Gaining confidence in ourselves starts with finding our breath.
This is the focus of the mainly Hatha style yoga classes, with Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga influences.
Enjoy a slow tempo in challenging poses, allowing time to ease deeper into the stretch.
Hatha is the original style of yoga and where all other styles stem from.
Lead by Melian (My lion), hence the name Lion Yoga.
With 11 years of experience exploring the different styles she realised that Hatha is her favourite form of yoga.
