‘Yoga’ comes from the Sanskrit word to ‘yoke’ or ‘unite’. At its most basic form we unite our body with our breath and our mind.

There are many paths and strands of yoga, though they all embrace the same ultimate aim; that through the practise of yoga we realise our potential in every sense; our true nature, our unchanging, ever-contented self. You don’t have to know anything about yoga to enjoy its limitless benefits. Yoga enhances life in every way. Through asanas (postures) we find the balance between strength & flexibility, allowing more freedom in movement. Through breathing more effectively we retain more prana (energy) and learn to control our nervous system. Yoga can become a moving meditation, bringing our minds to a calm and focused state. These aspects greatly influence our general wellbeing in day-to-day life.
