Yoga Asanas are one of the oldest forms of remedial exercise, the active limb of the eightfold Yoga path aimed to create union between mind, body and spirit. Yoga asanas are designed to promote physical health and stamina and to train the body to sit comfortably in meditation. In todays day and age we spend so much time sedentary, seated, distracted and stressed, often acting against our bodies best interests. Yoga can be useful in counteract some of these stresses that we impose upon ourselves and calming the nervous system. Awareness of body and breath, increased flexibility, tolerance and a relaxed state of mind are some of the benefits that the practice of yoga can bring.
General Yoga classes are open to all levels and are adapted to suit the energy and experience of attendees. Classes emphasize the grounding of poses and the importance of proper alignment and utilise props, small vinyasa sequences and long holds as the occasion arises.
Yoga Therapy uses straps, traction, chairs, bolsters, blocks, blankets, ropes and adjustments to focus yoga poses to the needs of an individual body. It is a therapeutic class aimed at soothing aggravated areas of the body and getting into stiff and inflexible joints. The therapy class has a maximum 1:4 teacher to student ratio.
