Through the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), you will stretch, align and calm your body.
Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.
Many people think they need to be flexible to practice yoga, but that's a bit like thinking you need to be able to ride a horse before taking riding lessons! Instead, yoga helps you lead a more flexible life.
Yoga provides you with an opportunity to switch off from the stresses of daily life as well as improve your physical strength, co-ordination, balance and cardiovascular health. Classes also encourage relaxation, enhance feelings of wellbeing, and help you to feel more emotionally and spiritually connected.
Classes flow steadily with a focus on synchronising movement with the breath. They help you to develop your awareness so you have time to slow down, tune inward and focus on maintaining proper alignment.
As you develop your practice, you will have the opportunity to explore the far-reaching benefits that simply bending, breathing and being can bring you.
