What is Yoga?
Yoga is recognised as an ancient system of philosophies, principles and practices derived from the Vedic tradition of India and the Himalayas more than 2500 years ago. It is a system that recognises the multi-dimensional nature of the human person, and primarily relates to the nature and workings of the mind, based on experiential practice and self-enquiry.
Yoga and personal development
By accepting your self in every posture, you learn to accept yourself in life. By opening your heart in 'heart opening' postures, you learn to let go of the resistance in your heart and let love in. The deep breathing in yoga lowers stress hormones and increases happy hormones, so you will increase happiness and attract more positive experiences. Yoga is the microcosm of your life. The more you love yourself in yoga, the more you love yourself in life. Yoga can be practiced at home or in a group. However you practice yoga, you will learn more about yourself and bring joy and harmony to your life.
There are easy postures for beginners, and more advanced postures for when your body has improved in strength and flexibility.
The added bonus to yoga is it doesn't matter if your young, old, sick or well, you will be able to practice yoga and improve the quality of your life.

What can I expect?
All yoga classes go for one hour and offer beginner-intermediate options. Your yoga instructor will give you alternate exercises if there are some things you cannot do. Please speak to your instructor prior to the class if you are pregnant, or have any injuries or concerns.
Classes begin with a warm up, followed by stronger postures, with softer postures towards the end. Meditation is for about 10 minutes and all you are required to do is breathe and be in the moment. Throughout the class there is never an obligation to do what the instructor or other people are doing. Honour yourself in each moment and do what is right for you. If you are feeling off colour and prefer to lie down or sit in one posture for a while; please do. This class is about allowing you to find your space, health, healing and self-acceptance. Yoga is the tool to get you there. It's not about the postures, it's about you. Love, honour, and accept you are where you are and that's the best you can do. You are already perfect. Stop trying so hard. Just allow yourself to be. You will find the people in our yoga class warm, friendly and accepting. Come as yourself. Come where you are. Give yourself this opportunity. Namaste.
