The word Yoga means union of body, mind and spirit and offers a truly holistic approach to life. We place great emphasis on assisting the person to strengthen their spiritual connection by aligning body and mind. Yoga practiced in this manner builds greater levels of conscious awareness and presence which transforms all aspects of our daily lives, leading to a state of inner peace.
We teach Hatha Yoga which is based on the ancient Ayurvedic Indian tradition that is over 5000 years old.
A typical Yoga session consists of:
breathing exercises - gentle stretches - Yoga postures - relaxation/guided meditation
We are flexible in our approach and sessions can be tailored to suit particular individual needs.
Within Yoga there are many different breathing techniques which can be used to train the mind to focus, to build up concentration, to relax, to increase awareness and to release stress. Controlled, focused breathing can be used to boost health and vitality and to increase energy levels. Indeed, learning to work with the breath is an extremely valuable tool on its own.
We teach a form of focused, gentle stretching to build up flexibility within the body and to further prepare body and mind for the Yoga postures.
The postures taught can be adapted to suit all levels of proficiency, from beginners upwards. The emphasis is on helping the individual to access a relaxed, focused "flow" of movement and to work with their body, rather than insisting on perfect execution of the particular posture.
Yoga postures work on many different levels: they strengthen the physical body by working on the spine and the bony framework, the muscles and connective tissue and the internal organs.
Combining breathing techniques with the postures further increases their effectiveness.
When executed in a focused, flowing manner, yoga postures clear and strengthen the mind and assist in bringing about a state of inner harmony.
By clearing and balancing the Chakras (energy centres), yoga postures can help the person align with their inner essence.
Relaxation & Guided Meditation
To maximize the benefits of the session the teacher typically concludes with a relaxing guided meditation the content of which can be structured around the particular needs of the individual.
