Yoga means Unity or Wholeness.
Yoga is a science that understands how the body and mind work together. It is not just a series of exercises to make you look good on the outside but will also give an inner feeling of wellbeing.
Yoga is the original holistic health practice, it is not a religion.
Yoga incorporates conscious awareness, postures, movement, breathing and relaxation techniques that bring about strength, flexibility, vitality, peace of mind, good health and wellbeing.
Practising Yoga regularly develops a strong connection to your body’s wisdom. You will learn to move fluidly with an awareness of your breath, you not only see and feel results, you will also enjoy being present in your body.
Yoga strengthens and realigns the muscles, enabling energy to flow freely in your body. Your posture will improve naturally to allow more freedom and ease in the body and breath. The muscles will become flexible, toned and strong.
Yoga is not about who can be the best, perform the most difficult contortions or struggling with a stress workout. It is about working at your own pace, respecting your body and its abilities and doing the best you can, which only you can judge.
