What Style of Yoga is Offered?
‘Hatha’ is a term that encompasses the living science of Yoga.Hatha Yoga not only consists of physical postures (asanas), but also integrates breathing (pranayama), diet, meditation, cleansing, energies and behaviours. Essentially, it is an age-old art of right living that aims to achieve spiritual growth and a higher level of consciousness by cultivating a healthy body and mind.
Classical Hatha Yoga is one of the few styles that embody traditional and authentic yogic disciplines. In fact, it is the only class in modern culture that comes close to the ancient system of yoga, preserves its cultural roots and advocates its spiritual doctrines.
Who is the Teacher?
Andrea Bobby is a certified Teacher of Hatha Yoga from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in Kerala, India. In addition to being a lifelong practitioner, she also has extensive international teaching experience and conducts classes in English, French or Tamil. Her method of instruction integrates traditional yogic techniques and modified flows for corporate groups (i.e. yoga for the workplace), seniors, mothers-to-be, special needs and students’ individual health requirements.

What Equipment Do I Need?

Tips & Suggestions for Classes at Home
- Choose a space with favourable energy, where you will not be disturbed. You may need to move some furniture aside to ensure that you have enough room.
- Have your yoga mat ready and wear comfortable attire for the practice of asanas.
- Position your phone/tablet/laptop about 8 feet away from you.
- It’s good to practice on an empty stomach, so don’t eat or drink anything at least 2 hours before the class.
Virtual Yoga Class Etiquette
- Book your class at least 24 hours in advance.

- If you are in a group session, ensure that your microphone is on mute throughout the session so that you won’t disturb other participants.
- Remember, you can choose whether you want to share your video or not!
One on One Yoga Classes
Live streaming one-on-one Hatha Yoga classes online with Andrea are tailored for your individual goals and health requirements. Not only will you have the undivided attention of the teacher, but you also choose the time that’s convenient for you!
During the first lesson, regardless of where you are in your yoga journey, foundation and proper alignment is key. You will gradually move through the Hatha sequence (breathing exercises, the Sun Salutation, the 12 Basic Postures and Final Relaxation), planting the right techniques and alignment from the get-go.
As you progress and evolve in your practice, Andrea’s continued guidance will ensure that you connect with yourself on a deeper level, make the most of your yoga journey and allow your own unique light to radiate into the world.
Corporate Yoga Classes
Today, the physical and mental well-being of employees needs more support, attention and care than ever before.Companies that take the time and effort to invest in their team’s wellness find a significant increase in productivity and morale. This leads to improved employee retention, reduced disability costs, a more pleasant work environment and ultimately, better service.
Arranging live-streaming online yoga classes for the team is a thoughtful and effective way to support them during these challenging times. In the place of the full Hatha sequence, these condensed bursts of group chair yoga sessions can easily be held in a boardroom during break times. No equipment required, except what’s already in there!
If your employees are working remotely from home, this is a great opportunity for them to participate in a fun, relaxing virtual group activity. Zoom classes allow all participants to see and hear each other. So this would not only be an exercise in well-being, but also an effective team-building session where they can re-connect with each other.
