1 Read about the Yoga that Shanthi Bhavana teaches...  

It is essential that you are aware and understand the type of Yoga you wish to practice. All forms of Yoga are YOGA... there is only ONE Yoga, however Yoga is made up of various wonderful practices that all combine to be called Yoga. Different teachers teach different forms of Yoga. 

There are various forms of Yoga and its practices that are suitable to a person at various stages of their life. For instance, a practice that may suit them when they are a teenager or in their 30's may not be suitable to them when they are in their 50s, 60s, 70s, etc. The appropriate Yoga must be given to a person according to their age, fitness and wellness level and experience, etc. 

Shanthi Bhavana Meditation & Yoga specialises in offering a service in authentic traditional classical Hatha Yoga, particularly in its Restorative form, and as a form of Yoga Therapy... as was taught by the legendary Indian Yoga master, Sri T. Krishnamacharya (regarded as the "modern father of Yoga").
