Yoga s History & Background
Yoga is an ancient system of exercise from India. Yoga means union, to join, to bind together to yoke. It is the union of mind body and spirit, a holistic approach to your physical and mental well being. Yoga combines breathing and stretching with a relaxed awareness, resulting in a beautiful toned body, glowing complexion and a positive attitude towards life. Everyone can practice Yoga. It is for everybody. This thoughtful practice promotes a mental and physical flexibility that students find beneficial in all areas of life. It is a mindful approach to exercise rather than a mindless one, an approach that that will pervade a persons whole being. Reducing stress and tensions and developing vitality, strength and a calm mind.
Traditional Hatha yoga should be easy and taken gently. Practiced slowly, mindfully, with a free flowing breath and a quiet mind. The movements called Asanas (postures) are designed to work each muscle, joint and ligament in the body, increasing the circulation and nourishing each cell for optimum health and vitality. The breathing rhythms of Yoga enable us to access the life force within us, creating vigor and a feeling of well being. Calm breath; calm mind. Hatha Yoga is a purificatory process of cleansing the body and mind. It is practiced as the first step to all Yogic disciplines. Its aim is to cease the constant chitter chatter of the mind, so the light of your true self will shine.
Yoga is non-competitive it is about you working steadily gradually and mindfully during practice. We are all different and our individual practice can vary on different days and times of day. Most importantly Yoga is not supposed to hurt! you should feel comfortable working to your own capabilities without comparing yourself to others.
So awareness of the self, listening to and respecting your body ensures a steady gradual progress. Enjoy your Yoga
You will be amazed with the results you achieve.
