Yoga is an ancient science, developed thousands of years ago, but no more relevant than in today’s modern life.
The word YOGA comes from Sanskrit root YUG, and translates as UNION. The aim of a yoga practice is to unite Mind and Body and Spirit, to create balance and a sense of contentment (Santosha)
The methodology behind Yoga can become a way of life which may occur for anybody interested in self-development and self-healing. It is a combination of physical and mental exercises linked in with correct breathing thus promoting flexibility and increasing stamina and strength within the body.
Yoga can be the way forward to a healthy mental attitude in a busy, stressful world.

Yoga is not just about time on the mat, moving, stretching and relaxing; Yoga is a lifestyle. The lessons you learn on the mat, in a yoga class, settle like seeds in to the heart of your soul, and changes occur on a deep level- physical, mental and emotional changes, that bring resilience, patience, joy and contentment.
