Are you new to yoga? HATHA YOGA is a classic yoga style of gentle physical exercises and breathing control. Our hatha-class is a slow-paced stretching class starting with a short seated meditation and simple breathing exercises. This is a good place to learn beginners' poses and become comfortable with yoga. Hatha Yoga simply makes you feel great!
Do you want your yoga class fast and sweaty, like a great workout? This dynamic yoga style allows the body to continually flow from one pose to the next becoming a complete body exercise. This style of yoga requires physical energy and for your mind to be focused and present in the body. If you like to keep moving, this style is definitely worth a try.
This 60-minute class will lead you through what is commonly called half of the Primary Series of ASHTANGA YOGA. It is a fast-paced, intense style of yoga beginning with sun salutations. This powerfull, athletic style of yoga appeals to those who like a sense of order and have already some yoga experiences. Be prepared to flow!

sun and represents the vital prana and
moon and represents the mind and the lunar qualities. The main object of hatha yoga is to create an absolute balance of the interacting activities and processes of the physical body, mind and energy (Prana). When this balance is created, the central force (Sushumna nadi) will push impulses upwards and evoluate consciousness. As you practice you will become more aware of your body, you will be able to overcome stress and cure various negative conditions such as stiff shoulders, back- or head ache, insomnia, stomach problems, autonomic ataxia, menopause, etc.
Your mental and physical well-being can improve your quality of life.
Vinyasa flow is a workout that will change your life, if you can survive it.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements. A Vinyasa class flows from one pose to the next without stopping to talk about the finer points of each pose. A really hard, advanced vinyasa flow class will be the hardest workout you’ve ever had. It’ll involve intense cardio and strength-building exercises, as well as some core work and a handful of asanas to increase flexibility. Your class will start with a series of Sun Salutations. That way, students come away with a good workout as well as a yoga experience. If you're new to yoga, it is a good idea to take a few classes in a slower style as Hatha Yoga first in order to build up the foundation of flexibility and strength necessary for the more difficult asanas.
In this Ashtanga Primary Series, we want to inspire people to find their yoga path so you can also practice at home. Ashtanga yoga involves a set sequence of poses that a practitioner follows in the exact same order every class. We will start with Five Sun Salutation A, Five Sun Salutation B, following by the Standing Sequence, the Primary Series (Seated Postures), and the Closing Sequence. Once you hit the seated postures, you're doing what's called vinyasa (mini Sun Salutations) between each posture. This keeps your body warm, which enables you to get deeper into poses. Vinyasas are the link between postures that make this type of yoga more like a fluid dance, and the constant moving not only works your muscles but also helps to quiet your mind. This means you'll probably get pretty sweaty, so it's best to wear long pants to absorb your sweat.
Ashtanga Yoga is one of the most powerful, popular and proven methods of yoga first introduced to the west by K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. It involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures that produce intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that in turn detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
If you're not a touchy-feely person, it might shock you when you show up to class and the instructor press, pull, and twist your body to help you get deeper into postures. Don't worry- our instructor has magical hands and experience and these assists will feel amazing, and they might be the reason you keep coming back.
Once you memorize the sequence, you can practice on your own at home.
Yoga for Kite & Windsurfers
If you're a kiteboarder, windsurfer, diver or just full of high-energy, a can't-sit-still kind of personality, sign yourself up for this custom made Yoga class. This type of yoga is challenging, quick-paced, and just the thing to open your tight hamstrings, hips, and shoulders. Practicing yoga awakens the body, increases spacial awareness and keeps the limbs flexible areas often ignored in daily activities and sport. Yoga lengthens and strengthens your muscles and keeps the body movements fluid with greater balance skills. This reduces the risk of injury and forms a strong foundation for all especially kite & windsurfers to nurture their skills. These yoga classes can be joined either by participation in the Windsurf Kite Yoga Camp or on an individual basis. The yoga classes are an added bonus keeping everyone active even on non windy days.

Instructor for HATHA-Yoga, 5 Tibetan and Lu Jong (Tibetan Healing Movements)
Yoga has given Marc a healing journey. Born 1958 in Luzern, Switzerland, he suffered at age two, a polio infection that resulted with a right leg handicap. This handicap lead to a life of daily pain as he got older. At the age of 38 his doctors advised him to have a major back surgery. Instead he decided to look for alternative ways to relief his symptoms and this lead him first to the Five Tibetans exercises. These 5 Tibetans helped him a lot, and at last he felt he could achieve more in life then just living with pain. During his exercises he learned from a friend about Lu Jong (Tibetan Healing Movements). To find a trainer for this his quest lead him further to India, where he found a Lu Jong teacher Lama Lobsang from Tibet. Lobsang introduced him to the tibetan healing movements and certified him in Lu Jong 1 and 2. This strengthened his body and brought further relief.
In 1997, Marc moved to Boracay and was introduced to Sivananda and Hatha Yoga through Mo-ching Yip. His yoga practice lead him to participate in a yoga teacher training program, so that he could share with others the healing power of yoga. In 2009 he graduated from a yoga teacher training course with Clayton Horton from Greenpath Yoga and now teaches Hatha Yoga at Boracay Yoga.
By special request he is happy to introduce all interested persons to the 5 Tibetan or Lu Jong movements.
