Yoga

The origins of yoga lie in ancient India, where the physical movement with which it is associated was only a small component in a more complex spiritual system. Yoga, meaning 'union', endeavours to unite us with our true, higher selves; that which is deeply connected to all beings. It directs our attention inward, to our breath, and physical sensations in order to synergise mind, body and soul. 

By default, yoga is an excellent form of physical exercise, but its surging popularity can be attributed to the feeling of clarity and well-being that is cultivated through harmonious mind-body balance.

          Slower paced strands of yoga are enjoyed for their de-stressing and grounding effects. They include...

          Hatha: The mother of all yoga styles; expect classical postures performed at a slow to moderate pace.

          Restorative: Props and bolsters are used to support the body completely, allowing it to relax fully in the asanas, which are held for up to 20 minutes.

          Yin: Classical poses are held for extended periods of time in this meditative practice.

          More vigorous strands of yoga offer rejuvenation, increased energy levels and a good workout to boot.

          Ashtanga: Possibly the most athletic style of yoga, ashtanga aligns each inhale and exhale with a specific movement, creating a continuous meditative sequence. 

          Vinyasa: Vinyasa yoga applies ashtanga principles to a less structured flow of movements.

          Dynamic: Athletic and challenging, dynamic yoga combines static posture practice with energetic flow.
