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.

How do I get started?

FIRST things FIRST...

Contrary to popular belief - You DO NOT have to be naturally supple or fit to start Yoga!!

It is for EVERYONE ...

... and if practised with sincerity it will not be long before you notice BIG changes!

It is very often because we are not too flexible, or that joint movement is actually restricted, that many people start their Yoga journey.

Simply contact Body 2 Fit on (01642) 680 680 to find out how you can get started today!

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.

A UK-wide CSP survey showed that 32% of people who have desk based work experience physical pain during working hours at least once a week. A further 65% reported back pain as the most common problem. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as back pain are one of the biggest causes of sickness absence on any given day and are estimated to cost society and employers around £7.4 billion a year!

With more and more of us having the option to work from home it's imperative to have the correct seating arrangement to reduce the risk of back pain and other associated aches and pains.
