Yoga is an ancient and powerful discipline which, regardless of age, health or lifestyle, can have lasting benefits on all aspects of our lives when practiced sincerely.
It is a complete system for physical, mental and spiritual well-being, which as well as the physical postures widely practiced today, also includes a healthy diet, pre-meditation breathing and relaxation techniques. The most advanced forms of meditation and self-realisation are also a part of yoga.
Yoga classes focus on the practice of physical asanas (postures) and Pranayama (breathing exercises). They bring about a sense of inner and outer balance in the body, mental clarity and aid relaxation. Correct alignment of the body, and precision in the postures are taught which helps build strength, stamina and improve your flexibility and balance.
Over time you will find your personal experience of yoga or “your practice” will evolve and although the postures themselves do not change, your relationship to them will. In this way, yoga is ever fresh and continually challenging.
