Yoga, by definition, is the union of the body, mind and soul to achieve well being, contentment and happiness. 

The word ‘Yoga’ comes from the Sanskrit meaning "to yoke" or "union". Yoga refers to the communion of the body, mind and soul.

Hatha Yoga uses a blend of poses (asanas); breath control (pranayama), relaxation and meditation to energise the body and focus the mind.

Yoga is for everyone; any experience, age or gender and helps to produce good health and well being for all.

Beginners start with asana, working on body control which builds strength, balance and suppleness, helping to correct postural alignment. 

Guided relaxation helps to still the mind creating calmness, relieving tension and reducing stress.

As you develop, Pranayama increases breath control; developing clarity of the mind and, when synchronised with the flowing sequences (vinyasa), increasing flexibility. 

The practise of yoga increases energy, creates calm and focus, awareness of body and mind, promoting happiness with positive mental attitude.

Exactly when Yoga began is uncertain but it is generally believed to be a least 5000 years old.  What many in western society see as Yoga today is a series of exercises and a chance to seek sanctuary from their busy lives.  Traditionally, the Yoga postures (asanas) are only one part of the eight limbs of Yoga which describe actions and behaviours to achieve enlightenment.
