“Go, go, go!” has become our mantra. A little me-time is something most of us don’t have time to think about. Unfortunately this regularly results in health issues such as stress, tiredness and/or physical complaints. Studies have shown 80% of these issues are a result of blocked emotions. But don’t worry, we’re here for you! The Rub raises awareness and will give you insights. We will help you balance a healthy relationship between mind, body and soul.

A deep tissue massage treats the deeper layers of muscle and tissue. The deep tissue treatment is similar to a regular treatment, however, the movements are slower and more focussed on specific pain and tension areas. This treatment will be beneficial if you suffer from chronical tension and tight muscles such as the neck, lower back and shoulder region.

Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to prepare body and mind for meditation.
Yin Yoga is a quiet and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy practice.
It targets our deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body — rather than the muscles. Energetically, yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs. To be healthy, we need healthy organs as well as healthy muscles.
Vinyasa yoga means breath-synchronized flowing movement. You basically flow through positions incorporating the movements along with your breath. The idea is to warm your body up through a series of Sun Salutations and then hold the postures that follow for the duration of the class for 5 deep breaths and then transition directly into the following posture. This helps build focus, concentration, physical endurance and stamina.
Prepare for labor and motherhood these classes. All classes are appropriate for beginner through advanced practitioners. This class will provide guidance in breathing, meditation, stretching and strengthening techniques to allow for an easier transition into motherhood. Postures and sequences are designed specifically for the needs of pregnant women.
