To feel better. For us it really is that simple, we feel better after yoga than we did before and here are some reasons why.....
We are designed to move our bodies around, to move energy in the form of oxygen in the blood, lymphatic fluid, electrical signals, minerals, proteins, hormones and all the wonderful things that keep us alive and well, our bodies are also full of motor and sensory pathways- communication from the brain to the body and the body to the brain, these signals are really important for our mental and physical health. Yoga is an excellent way to give all these systems a tune up and workout, providing a complete, holistic and therapeutic form of exercise for body and mind.
We are passionate about the benefits of Yoga. A regular practice will tone your muscles and strengthen your joints. Co-ordinating your breath with movement will improve the function of your cardiovascular system. Learning to balance and control your physical body will improve your focus and mental clarity.
These physical benefits promote a deeper sense of peace within us, leading to improved emotional wellbeing. When we can learn to relax our physical body we become calmer, emotionally stronger and more positive in our outlook and confidence.
