about health


Western lifestyle puts a high demand on the ability to perform and give of ourselves. Time to rest and restore is often neglected. Disregarding of physical and emotional needs over time can lead to dis-ease. Good health requires a balanced lifestyle.


Yoga balances and purifies the body and mind. Its preventative and curative effects reaches deep into the connective tissues, digestive system, circulatory system, glandular system, nervous system and all the major meridians that runs through our body. It balances the body on many levels of being.


The idea behind the “Unni’s Healing Yoga” is that everyone has the ability to self-improve personal health. All it takes is an open mind and a desire to improving your  health at your own ability and your own pace.

Yin yoga addresses the connective tissues in the spine, hips, pelvis, and joints. Gravity is used to give moderate stress to the connective tissues (tendons, fascia and ligaments) with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Poses are held up to five minutes.

restorative yoga


Restorative Yoga is a wonderful way of letting  yourself rest and renew. This passive practice helps reduce fatigue, lower blood pressure and improve immunity and digestion. The class is a welcome respite and helps prepare the mind and body for deepened awareness and meditation.


yin/restorative flying yoga


This passive practice involves variations of seated, supine, and prone yoga poses typically held from 3-10 minutes. A hammock suspended about a foot from the floor is used as a prop. Poses are held inside the hammock (flying) and supported by the floor. The hammock allows gravity to apply moderate stress to the connective tissues in the body, accessing the deeper layers of fascia, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. This practice provides space for safe and effective inversions. Socks and yoga mat are required.


yoga for eyes


Many vision problems stem from a gradual loss of flexibility and tone in the eye muscles, which leads to inability to focus at different distances. Eye yoga exercises have existed for centuries and have helped many improve and even regain natural eyesight. Come and learn yoga poses and exercises that help improve your eyesight.  Bring a mat, and an eye pillow.
