Yoga

I believe YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE and EVERY BODY, Yoga means ‘unity’ or ‘union’ and practising Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonising Body, Mind, Breath and Spirit to make us whole.

Hat-ha Yoga is a system of postures and breath for the whole body – the Asanas (postures) are the physical stretches or postures which are designed to put pressure on the glandular systems of the body, thereby increasing its efficiency and total health. The body is looked upon as the primary instrument that enables us to work and evolve in the world. Asanas come in standing, sitting, and inverted forms and are designed to improve suppleness, flexibility, and posture. They also stretch the muscles, and help to build stamina and strength in the body, as well as calming the mind.

Pranayama : Breathing exercises are designed to master the movement of prana (or life-force) within us. The practice of pranayama enhances lung capacity, oxygenating and energizing the body, and improves the circulation. Like the asanas, pranayama also calms the mind, allowing a feeling of tranquility and emotional well-being to develop over time.
Meditation techniques: Meditation allows us to become aware of how our mind works and allows us to accept ourselves. We become more single minded, our concentration improves, and we give up on habitual thought patterns, allowing us to become self-confident, open, and honest with ourselves and others.

Yoga is a very personal practise, even though we work together in a group; each individual works to their own ability and take each posture to their own level of comfort. Everyone is reminded that Yoga is not a competition and you certainly do not have to be flexible to start, you can be any shape or size.

I believe we can all benefit from Yoga, whether physically, mentally, spiritually or hopefully all of these.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Centre.

Om Shanti…
