Benefits of Yoga

Yoga for the Body

Yoga stretches and strengthens the body, creating a leaner physique, improving metabolism and enabling healthy weight management. Bone health improves, countering weaknesses in posture and fragility in bones. Blood circulates more effectively, joints and muscles move more easily, toxins are removed and immunity boosted. Controlled, deep breathing throughout practice increases cardiovascular fitness. Yoga poses develop balance, coordination and motor control. Yoga can ease the pain resulting from certain medical conditions.

Yoga for the mind

Yoga strengthens mind, body and the connection between them. Not only is yoga the perfect antidote to the stresses of urban life, but its long term benefits mean we can live longer, happier and healthier lives. Yoga promotes relaxation, nurturing inner peace and combatting stress. It means we can sleep better, overcome obstacles more easily and achieve more balance in our lives. Yoga is used by many to work through depression, trauma and other mental health issues. The yoga world is a nurturing, welcoming community. Once you become part of it, you'll never want to leave.
