What is Yoga?

 

Yoga is an ancient system of physical and mental exercises designed to instil a sense of tranquillity and wellbeing in the practitioner. Yoga is learning to come back to yourself. It’s finding your limits, expanding your boundaries, developing your potential and being able to truly relax into who you are. Yoga means “unity” or “oneness” and on a practical level this means integration of the body, the mind and the heart.

 

It is important to note that Yoga is not a religion, rather it is a science of harmony and positive living that has been used for millennia and it will give rise to health and happiness to anyone who incorporates the basic principles into their daily lives.

"The point of yoga is not to stick your foot behind your head... The point of yoga is to reconnect you to the deepest part of you – to rediscover who you are, and then carry that out into the world. Yoga is awesome physical exercise, and yes, it’s going to help you lose weight, get strong, and feel great. But yoga also helps you get still, find peace, and remember who you are, why you’re here, and what you want out of life. And if you can bring that stillness, peace, and confidence from your practice into the rest of your life, life is going to change in amazing ways."
