Would you like to improve your balance, flexibility and strength? Are you looking to dedicate time to yourself or to relax and wind down at the end of stressful day or week? Or perhaps you are looking to stretch, be more supple and improve general well being? Or looking for relaxation and meditation?
Practising yoga helps the body to maintain balance, to improve strength, and to boost the body’s capacity to self healing. The most gentler yoga postures can bring strength in the body as well as the mind - just think about 'tree pose' for example. Breathing practices help relax the body, connect to the mind and to the inner-self. A yoga practice should enable us to come to a quiet space, to calm the chatter in our mind and think positively . 'Better control over breathing means better control over the heart rate. The focus on postures, breathing and relaxation in each session lead to relaxation and meditation in the more advanced practices.
Practising yoga regularly helps to:
increase the range of movements in the joints
relieve lower back pain

improve balance, mobility and energy levels
improves alignment and posture
reduce tension and help to manage stress better
bring equilibrium to the muscular and nervous system, to the digestive as well as the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
