Why Yoga?

Yoga is deceptively powerful… Gain strength, flexibility and an insight into yourself, while learning tools to help you heal your body and mind.

This centuries old practice combats stress and helps the body to become strong, supple, healthy and mobilised, providing a great antidote to the strain of today’s lifestyle.
More and more people are realising the benefits of practicing this discipline, which has stood the test of time as a system of “right living”.

The benefits of Yoga are more than just physical.
While focusing on the breath and the postures one is able to free the mind from everyday worries and emotional and mental stress, in the same way that creative endeavours allow one to get “lost” in an activity. Yoga filters into one’s life in a ‘sneaky good’ way, enabling a new perspective and way of being.
Whether on its own or as a “cross training” tool along with other pursuits, yoga is sure to enhance your life.
