Yoga is system of philosophy that originated in India over 5000 years ago, developed by hermits as a means to still the mind. Yoga is a holistic approach to mind, body and spirit. The Sanskrit word "Yoga" means union. It consists of various exercises that are mainly based on animal movements.
Practicing Yoga can help provide us with the tools to cope with the daily challenges in life. The movements - asanas - are done slowly and medatively, and are combined with breath awareness - pranayama. Yoga tones the muscles without straining them, promotes healthy blood flow, combats fatigue, balances the neuro-endocrine system, stabilizes emotions and reduces stress. The physical body is flexed and strengthened in order to sit still, enabling us to explore the deeper reaches of meditation.
Everyone can practice Yoga, regardless of age, sex or ability. Yoga can help keep your body supple, helps manage stress and it can provide relief for specific conditions. Yoga is very suitable for less able bodied people. What we practice in class is determined by the needs of those attending.
Making Yoga part of your daily routine brings long term rewards for your body and mind; the combined physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of the individual. Yoga helps you to develop the 'feel good' effect. Yoga practice integrates everything that makes up the whole self and practitioners often have a sense of standing taller and feeling more relaxed, happily and at ease.
