Yoga has been practised in India for over 2000 years. It is a practical philosophy involving every aspect of a person's being:
• the practice of asanas (postures) and pranayama (yogic breathing) strengthens and invigorates all systems of the body, promoting health, flexibility and bringing a sense of freedom and well-being to the regular practitioner.
• a meditative yoga practice improves concentration which steadies the mind and nervous system. Through focus and self-enquiry we come to understand the nature of our minds.
• In terms of our day to day lives, yoga practice helps us to stay present to our experience as it is from moment to moment. This skill allows us to face the ups and downs of life with greater clarity and acceptance.
We teach yoga in the method of B.K.S. Iyengar. who is the world's foremost exponent of Hatha Yoga and has spent a lifetime in the study, practice and teaching of this traditional science and art.
We place an emphasis on alignment in postures which engages and refines the skills of observation and reflection. The mind and body, more in harmony with each other, begin to function to their full potential.
When needed we use props and adapt postures to the needs of the individual. We welcome students, young and old, of all abilities from beginners to experienced, expectant mothers and those with injuries and chronic conditions.
