Why Yoga?

Is it all sitting cross-legged and omming?

No, not at all, Yoga is an ancient form of exercise, meditation and philosophy combining Mind and Body.

In today’s increasingly stressful world, Yoga can offer an alternative workout that improves the general well being of mind and spirit as well as body. Discover the secret of moving beyond your current mind-body limitations and restoring inner harmony.

Yoga was developed in India some 5000 years ago and is an integrated system of exercise and philosophy. Yoga provides the opportunity to take some time out from the pressures and demands of your day.

It challenges the body through physical postures, whilst simultaneously relaxing, calming and regenerating the mind through controlling and regulating the breath.

Time doing yoga is time well spent as it can help:

Strengthen the immune system – fewer colds and cases of flu, faster recovery from illness.

Add vitality and strength to the spine – back pain is one of the commonest reasons for taking time off work.

Reduce stress and tension – especially around the shoulders and neck from sitting at computer screens.

Expand lung capacity and increase oxygen intake – by oxygenating the brain, yoga increases the levels of endorphins in the blood, which can dramatically reduce feelings of apathy and depression.

In addition, yoga:

  • improves muscle tone, flexibility, strength and stamina
  • improves all systems of the body
  • improves digestion and lowers fat levels
  • improves circulation
  • increases energy levels during the day and helps you sleep better at night
  • enhances concentration and creativity
  • creates a sense of well being and calm and boosts your self esteem

In short, yoga makes you feel good!
