In our hectic modern world many people are taking ‘time out’ to practice yoga – a system of philosophy that originated in India 5,000 years ago. Everyone can practice yoga, regardless of age, sex or ability. Yoga offers us a holistic approach to body, mind and spirit, which can provide us with the ‘tools’ to cope with the challenges of daily life. Yoga can also complement medical science and therapy for specific conditions.
The Sanskrit word yoga is translated as ‘union’. The practice of yoga helps to co-ordinate the breath, mind and body to encourage balance, both internally and externally and promote feelings of relaxation and ease. In the West, the most widely taught form of yoga is Hatha Yoga which offer students postures and movements to stretch, strengthen and flex the body, to develop breath awareness and to relax.
In my group and private classes I strive to create an inclusive, safe, warm and nurturing environment where individuals learn body positive Yoga through body awareness, anatomy and alignment with an emphasis on finding what feels right or not for for their own body, thus making Yoga accessible and open to all!
