First of all: What is Yoga?
Yoga is an ancient practice for sustaining your physical and mental wellbeing. It cultivates power, agility and determination. The core components of yoga are postures, breathing and meditation. It originated in India more that 2,000 years ago.
Yoga for the body
Yoga postures provide an excellent form of stimulating physical exercise. They develop muscle, stamina and flexibility. Applied breathing helps you to integrate your movement in and out of the postures. When you practise yoga what you’re really doing is giving your body a thorough workout from the inside-out the outside-in.
Yoga for the mind
Practising meditation calms the mind and expands your awareness. Creating space for clarity and insight. It’s not so much about blissfulness (although it can be). It’s better to view meditation as grounded and positive way of managing your mind. Which also does a great job relaxing your body and helps to maintain a healthy brain.
There’s no other single discipline so good for both your body and mind. Yoga is proven to be effective at preventing or easing the symptoms of physical and mental illness. It has something for anyone who’s willing to learn and practise regularly. That’s where we can help!
