Yoga is the oldest known art and science of self/personal development. It aids and in some cases solves the problems of health and fitness (both physical and mental) and allows peace of mind. Yoga is over 5000 years old. It is a system of self health care, it utilises Breathing Exercises and Techniques (Pranayama), Physical Postures/Exercises (Asanas) and Deep Relaxation Techniques (Yoga Nidra), working together these elements help to develop the body, mind, heart and spirit harmoniously, bringing the whole body into a state of 'balance'.
Yoga is for everyone, regardless of background, age, sex or physical condition. It teaches you how to improve, condition and control every part of your body, become aware of your body, and how to quieten and relax your mind.
People use and practise Yoga for a variety of reasons and for individual problems, such as: weight control, circulation, stiffness, tension, stress and for relaxation purposes, it also allows the body to become supple and toned through the practise of stretching and strengthening postures/exercises (Asanas).
Yoga awakens our awareness so that we can free and rid ourselves from habituation and learn how to relax, tone and condition the 'whole body', re-establish new levels of health and allows us to achieve that overall feeling and state of 'WELL BEING'.
