VibroAcoustic Yoga is a class for all levels, in which you're invited to expand your presence and awareness of your own mind and body. The asana practice is followed by Yoga Nidra Relaxation, and VibroAcoustic Sound Relaxation.
The class is accompanied by music, sound and vibration coming from our Surround Sound System and our VibroAcoustic floor, which anchors the mind into presence, while providing a powerful Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), an unparalleled tool for mitigating the effects of depression, chronic pain, and epilepsy, through the release of tensions, stimulation of blood flow, and much more.

❈ About the Yoga practice ❈
Rooted in practices like Restorative, Yin, Nada and Hatha Yoga, the classes guide you through a slow yet, full-body workout, accompanied with music and sounds specially composed and selected for your wholesome experience. Each teacher brings their own unique style of “VibroAcoustic Yoga”, so each class varies in style, and how the VibroAcoustics are being used.
The organically transforming music serves as a reference point for the mind, body and breath, to stay present throughout the session, both activating and relaxing.
It assists in the core purpose of yoga - the “yuj” unifying with the now, to such a degree that the mind is often experienced simply enjoying being present.
