Why do Yoga?

Todays world is full of stresses, deadlines and a multitude of demands on our time and peace of mind, we sit too long and too often; staring at screens or cursing traffic. Without an outlet for these stresses, the pressure can very quickly accumulate and cause physical and mental ailments and dis-ease within our bodies. Those symptoms can be anything from aches and pains, migraines/headaches, insomnia, digestive disorders and depression to name just a few. Yoga asana gives the body an outlet to release this pressure and stress, not just for the body but also the mind and spirit.

Yoga focuses on balancing the mind, body and sprit, bringing relief, calm and contentment. With yoga’s unique combination of physical exercise (asana), breath science (Pranayama) and relaxation and meditation, you will find yourself living a much happier, healthier and contented life. Your yogic practice will follow you off the mat into your world and help you deal with the pressures of daily life in a more mindful and positive way.

Let’s face it, something that has been around for centuries with no sign of disappearing anytime soon surely must be good for you.
