Health implies the harmonious functioning of the body and the mind. A truly healthy person has discipline, a strong will and a strong mind. Regular yoga practice can help us achieve this. Western science is starting to provide some concrete clues as to the benefits of a yoga practice and how it can improve overall wellbeing.
The beginnings of yoga date back to over 5000 years ago in Northern India. The word yoga means to ‘join’ or ‘union’. The yoga practiced today is a system of physical poses leading to health, fitness and well being. About 75 – 90% of doctor visits are linked to stress. A regular yoga practice can improve resistance to psychological stress, relieve anxiety, depression and insomnia. It can also increase strength, flexibility and endurance. It is therapeutic and relaxes both the body and mind while assisting in improving conditions such as high blood pressure or back problems. Any form of exercise is good, however, unlike other forms of exercise, yoga is whole and complete in that it includes:
- protects your spine (you are only as young as your spine is flexible)
- builds muscle strength
- increases blood flow
- improves balance
- builds awareness
- releases tension
- Relaxes your system! (the meditative part of a yoga practice is key to relaxing and de-stressing the mind)
We use props to assist attendees to ease into their postures. We also supply mats. Use of props and mats available at no extra cost.
