“Yoga is both ancient and modern. Yoga is both a ‘state’ and a means to attaining it. At the heart of all styles and approaches to yoga is the recognition that we are more than just a body and a collection of thoughts in the mind. The practices of yoga help us to transcend the physical and mental limitations and come to the easeful state of simply being true Self.
Yoga cultivates health and well-being (physical, emotional, mental and social) through the regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation.
Yoga is an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on balance and harmony, within each person and with each other.
The most widely recognised form of yoga today is an integration of several yoga practices, primarily body movement, traditionally known as postures or asanas. They serve to strengthen and invigorate the body, helping all physical systems to work properly. These include the skeletal and muscular structures as well as the circulation, respiratory, glandular and nervous systems. The postures are performed with awareness, with a focus on the breath and the internal experience, leading to greater mindfulness and mental ease.
Yoga is a remarkably effective practice on its own or can be part of other physical training such as aerobics, weight training, running, swimming or other sports. Yoga at its heart is a practice of mindfulness and with regular practice, this mindfulness can be incorporated into other activities and areas of life. ” ~ Yoga Australia.org
Absolutely! It’s important to understand that yoga is a personal practice, one that is about listening and respecting where your body’s capabilities are at on any given day. Challenges will present themselves and you are always the one in control of what level you choose for you. We promote a competition free atmosphere and we use props to assist you to find your ease in the postures.
