Ignite the internal flame of balance inside and out. Prana is the vital energy or life force. When vital energy (prana) flows freely and unrestrictedly throughout the body, there is physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing.

Kaiut Yoga is all about biomechanical health
Unlike most yoga that stretches muscles in extraordinary ways, Kaiut Yoga works from the joints. As such, it has a dramatic impact in countering the harmful effects of modern living – where most of us sit most of the day – as well as the harmful impact to our bodies of consistent movement patterns such as frequent running or cycling, playing a certain sport for years, or our compensating behaviours for old sports or other injuries.
Kaiut Yoga is about maintaining or returning the body to optimal structure and functionality. It’s about freedom of movement, physical system and energy flow. It’s about keeping us as healthy, mobile and pain free as possible for as long as possible. With more freedom of body comes freedom of mind. It’s about a better quality of life. This class is not heated and is appropriate for beginners, intermediate, and advanced practitioners.
