Introduction to Yoga

We are naturally fluid.

More than half of our total body weight is water. Yet this fluid power; in our awareness and way of moving, is often an untapped reservoir of energy and joy.

Yoga aims to unite our mind, body and spirit. It helps you to become more aware of your body's posture, alignment and pattern movements. And of course, as we all know, it makes the body more flexible and helps you relax.

Yoga will also benefit you in these areas:-

Physiological - It helps to reduce blood pressure, and heart rate, and it also helps to increase your endurance during activities.

Psychological - It puts you in a better state of mind, as it relaxes you whilst reducing depression and anxiety.

Biochemical - It helps to decrease the glucose and salt in the body. It increases the Vitamin C which is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body

There are many types of yoga to practice so it is important to find out which type of yoga is right for you. The most common types of yoga are;-

  • Bikram yoga

  • Vinyasa yoga (also known as vinyasa flow)

  • Ashtanga yoga

  • Hatha yoga

  • Prenatal yoga (if you're an expectant mother) and

  • Restorative yoga

Remember, you don't need to have previous experience in yoga.

Flexibility will build as time goes on.

You will feel yourself becoming fitter, more energetic, happier and peaceful.
