Designed to instil enthusiasm and discipline in aspiring yogis, as well as inspiration to maintain one’s own self-practice, Ganga’s yoga sessions bring precise alignment of the physical body, awareness of the breath as well as the prana, clarity to the mind, balance of the three gunas as well as the male/female energies within, opening of the chakras and a heightened connection with the natural and supernatural universe around us.
