Yoga - What is it?
Yoga is a non competitive system of practices working through the body and breath which lead us on a journey of self discovery towards the ultimate aim of stilling the busy mind.
The origins of Yoga stretch back several thousands of years before the birth of Christ, with the teaching of Yoga in the UK being traced back to Victorian times. Since then it has continued to grow in popularity and has formed the basis of many other types of posture practice. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit root ‘Yuj’ which means to unite.

What should I expect in my first Yoga session?
The aim of the class is to be effective but fun and all students are encouraged to work at their own level and pace.
Yoga isn’t rushed so building up and improving along the way is part of the practise.
A session will typically begin by centring the mind and opening up the spine before the posture work (asana) which concentrates on releasing deep tensions in the muscles and joints rather than creating more tension through excessive stretching. Asana work will focus on building strength and increasing flexibility and will include some flowing posture work as well as static asana practice.
Correct breathing is important throughout the posture work but the class will also include specific breathing practises (pranayama).
There will always be a relaxation at the end of the class.
