About Trini Yoga Shala
In Trini Yoga Shala we believe that practising Yoga
is an essential part of everyday life.
In a space we created with lots of love, we teach you how to exercise
your body by using breathing techniques (pranayama) and posture sequences (asana),
and your mind by practising focus and meditation.
By cultivating the flow of energy (prana)
we experience the transformational qualities of Yoga.
Through our practice we learn how to observe, to discover and to evolve,
inside and outside the studio.
