If you frequently get the feeling that life is beyond your control and have difficulty coping with pressures of modern life, you may be suffering from stress, depression or anxiety which could lead to even more serious health problems. What more, stress is also one of the biggest factors contributing to ageing!

We are all very different so it’s vitally important to realise what causes your stress and how to  combat it. The combined science of Yoga & Ayurveda offer one of the most effective and practical self-healing methods to reduce the effects of stress on your body + mind and to bring balance into your busy lifestyle so you can feel healthy and happy again.
