What is Yoga…?

Yoga is described/translated as a union of the body and mind…I like to think of it as them working together harmoniously.  Through the practice of Yoga (physical movement into postures working with your breath and meditation) one can learn to still the thought processes of the mind, and start to discover moments of stillness within.

What to expect and the benefits of practicing yoga…

Improving the quality, flexibility and range of movement of your body.  Encouraging you to become more aware of daily patterns of movement.

Time for yourself to be quiet and reflective away from busy lifestyles.

Learning techniques to connect to and aid breathing, to encourage quietening of the mind.

Relaxation practice to aid the reduction of tension and effects of stress in the musculature of the body.
