What is Yoga?

Take Time To Pause To Breathe

Be Still Be Present Be Aware

Be Here In this Moment

Translated from Sanskrit, yoga means “yuj”, or to yoke, join or bring union to the mind, body and spirit. An ancient science developed in India over 5,000 years ago, the physical aspect (asanas) was formed as a tool to soften and release stress in the body and to bring stillness to the mind as a preparation for meditation. Stillness in the mind is harmony in action to create a sense of overall peace, joy and wellness.

Consistent and regular practice of the yoga offers numerous therapeutic health benefits. On the physical level some benefits may include: increasing inner strength, tone, flexibility in the body and mobility in the joints, regulating digestion, releasing stress and anxiety, improving concentration and mental clarity, increasing lung capacity, encouraging healthy immune system, alleviating pain in the body, massaging of all the internal organs, glands and cells, balancing cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
