Yoga is an ancient form of whole body & mind practice that boosts physical and mental wellbeing, focussing on strength, flexibility, mindfulness and breathing.
Yoga is a natural de-stressor, relaxing, strengthening and energising in the same measure.
It originated in India around 5000 years ago and focusses on controlled breathing and developing bodily strength. Breathing is at the core of our every day and learning to breathe mindfully results in greater oxygen absorption rates, increased blood flow and energy for the whole body.
On your introduction to Yoga, you may not be able to touch your toes, let alone arm balance, but soon you will notice a gentle loosening of your muscles and an increase in your whole body strength flexibility.
Research undertaken by Professor Richard Davidson of the University of Wisconsin found that through practicing Yoga, the left prefrontal cortex showed heightened activity leading to improved immune function and greater happiness. Countless research has shown the health benefits at all ages of regular yoga practice.
