Yoga, which means ‘union’ between mind, body and spirit originated in India over 5,000 years ago.
Yoga asana refers to the physical practice of postures or poses.
Hatha Yoga is a holistic approach which improves the flow of energy, increases flexibility, stamina and strengthens and tones the body through posture practice. Yoga practice nourishes and stimulates the major systems in the body including the cardiovascular, respiratory and endocrine systems. It also develops breath awareness – all vital to increase the experience of a relaxed state of being.
Vinyasa Yoga is breath-synchronized movement. It is a series of poses that flow with the breath. It is a rhythmic dance like flowing practice. It has many similar benefits as Hatha Yoga
Yoga can also be a spiritual experience and through the posture practice, creates opportunities for self awareness.
Anyone can practice Yoga, and you dont have to be flexible! The Yoga will do that for you! Just go at your own pace, relax and enjoy it.
