The Benefits Of Yoga

The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means ‘to join”.

Roots Of Yoga

Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of the development for the body, mind and spirit.

The continued practice of yoga will lead us into sense of peace and wellbeing, and also a feeling of being at one with our environment.

Relationship Of Yoga With Life

Historically yoga was more than just a method of teaching, it was a way of life.

With yoga, you dedicated yourself to a lifestyle and culture that surpassed meditation techniques and included healthy eating habits, bathing habits, social interaction and work.

Yoga's philosophy is rooted in a physical culture of health and well-being that is still emphasised today and explains why over 15 million people in the world now practice this ancient tradition.

What Are Yoga Postures?

Every yoga asana (pose) has a different name and includes standing postures, seated twists, backbends, arm balances, inversions and core holds.

The downward facing dog for example, is in itself said to calm the brain, energise the body, improve digestion, strengthen arms and legs and be therapeutic for high blood pressure.
