Introduction into Yoga
The ancient science of Yoga is designed to transform, to balance and to awaken the person on a physical, mental and spiritual level. Through various exercises of breath control, meditation and bodily postures, Yoga works on deep layers of the human being, stimulating an energy flow to all meridians and organs of the body.
While physically detoxifying, yoga pushes the mind towards self-realisation. The practice teaches us to learn how to move beyond limitations and towards endless possibilities. From feeling blocked to feeling free.
How can Therapeutic Yoga help you?
Yoga therapy is a type of therapy that uses yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery to improve mental and physical health. Therapeutic yoga is an inherently holistic approach, simultaneously working on the body, mind, and spirit. Various yoga practices systematically strengthen different systems in the body, including the heart and cardiovascular system, the lungs, muscles, and the nervous system. Yoga practices can improve function of the digestive system, foster psychological well-being, and improve oxygen delivery to tissues. Yoga also can help the body more efficiently remove waste products, carcinogens, and cellular toxins.
Our expert yoga therapists are trained in the application of specific yoga postures and practice to complement the treatment of health conditions including stress, weight loss, diabetes Type 2, muscle and joint pains and lots more.

Salt Room at House of Nature
Introduction into Salt Therapy
Also known as halotherapy, salt therapy is a modern variation of the Eastern European tradition of spending time in natural salt caves for health and wellbeing.
Our salt room facility maintains an artificial climate infused with special Himalayan salt particles to give you the full benefit of the anti-bacterial and anti-microbial effects of salt in addition to the natural moisturizing and detoxification properties of mineral salts.
Scientific Benefits of Salt Therapy
Salt molecules are comprised of a positive sodium ion and a negative chloride ion. While you breathe in the salty air of the therapy room, salt molecules enter the moist airways of the lungs and break down, releasing the negative ions.
The negative ions stimulate airway linings, improving mucous clearance and improving immune response to pathogens.
People with chronic respiratory conditions lack sodium chloride in their airway linings and salt therapy helps resolve this deficiency. It alleviates symptoms, helps prevent them from reoccurring, and reduce dependence on medications like nasal sprays and inhalers. The airborne salt that works on airways also clears up a variety of skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema. Furthermore, the release of negative ions can have a beneficial effect on your mood.
Studies suggest that the release of negative ions during salt therapy reduce stress, headaches, lethargy and depression, and improves energy and mental acuity while stabilizing mood and sleep patterns. Salt therapy provides the best results when taken regularly.

Introduction into Aqua Yoga Therapy
Aqua yoga therapy is a type of yoga in which the postures are performed in water. This can be a warm water pool or more natural, open water such as the sea.
It is a gentle and low impact activity and, as such, may be more accessible to those who struggle with physical exercise.
Aqua yoga adapts the postures and principles of yoga, including breathing and mindfulness, to an aquatic environment. It is said to be a particularly relaxing, soothing and restorative form of yoga due to the effect on the body of being in water.
