Yoga is a science. Yoga postures keep the body in the best possible health and give an understanding of how to release tension at a deep level from tissues, organs and joints.
Yoga helps us to restore wholeness in body, mind and spirit.
Stressful living and poor lifelong habits can create various stresses, contractions that impair or block proper flow of energy through channels. Stress inhibits circulation of energy and nutrients while allowing toxins and waste materials to accumulate. These blockages cause discomfort, reduce functioning, resulting in pain and disease. As mind and body are interconnected, physical blockages intertwine with mental and emotional blockages and hold various addictions, compulsions and attachments.
From Asana arises steadiness of body and mind, freedom from disease and lightness of the limbs. Hatha Yoga Pradipika 1.17
The purpose of asanas is to create a free flow of energy within our body (prana), release tension, improve flexibility and maximise flow of energy.
Yoga postures prepare us for pranayama (breathing techniques and practice) and meditation. Prana is life force; the subtle energy of air. While postures are important, prana is perhaps more important. Prana directs our postures. As we use the power of prana, it directs our yoga practice from within and we become aware of prana’s healing power.
Pranic body works mainly through our respiratory and circulatory systems of the physical body. Oxygen is carried through blood to energise our tissues. Yogic breathing gives benefits to both bodily health and mental well being and techniques of pranayama (breathing) help us to meditate effectively.
Yoga is taught in a traditional way of a gentle warm up, asanas (postures) and pranayama(breathing practice) and leads into relaxation or meditation. Everyone is welcome and we cater for all levels. If you have specific health issues we recommend that you contact the teacher prior to arrival to ensure your yoga tuition is appropriate for you.
