This when practiced regularly heals all sickness and purifies your body in preparation for deeper advance Yogic practice. Ashtanga means 8 limbs of the body and Vinyasa means breathing and movement system. For each movement, there is one breath. The purpose of vinyasa is for internal cleansing. Breathing and moving together while performing asanas makes the blood hot thus improving circulation.

Sukshma yoga is an excellent relaxation technique that promotes and activates our pranic body. It is a form of yoga comprising of subtle exercises that are simple to practice yet highly effective.

This type of yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides similar physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter. It is usually done in groups, with eye contact and lots of playfulness between participants. Intentional laughter often turns into real and contagious laughter.
