About Yoga

What is yoga?

Yoga is an ancient eastern practice that blends gentle, yet powerful, exercises and stretches with breathing and meditation techniques. Yoga practice benefits the whole body and mind. Yoga has something for everyone no matter your age, fitness or flexibility. With regular yoga sessions you’ll become stronger, fitter and more energetic. Your posture and balance will improve, your aches and pains fade and the stresses of modern life simply melt away.

In contrast to most disciplines, yoga doesn’t get more complex as you become more experienced. The poses and sequences were set thousands of years ago and have changed little since. The same moves are practiced by beginner and expert alike. You simply practice the poses at a level that suits your experience. Your teacher will move among the class, gently adjusting and guiding, and helping you develop.
