It is simply a tool to help us lead a healthier, more fulfilled and content life. Our idea is that yoga is for everyday life. It can be challenging but should never be laboured or painful. Each student works to their own level. It should be simple but stimulating. The key is to find the correct yoga method for you. Something that resonates with you, that leaves you feeling good, both physically and mentally. The beauty of this tool of yoga is that while one of its primary goals is this deep sense of wellbeing, some of the byproducts include strength, tone, vitality, flexibility, relief from many aches and pains, a greater ability to deal with stress and a sense of grace and calm throughout your day. While some fundamentals of yoga can be found more and more in sports, yoga includes specific elements such as: * stretching which relieves tension, * twists which help spinal rejuvenation; aid digestion and help to detoxify the body; * inversions which aid the lymphatic system * balance and regulated breathing which calm the nervous system and * heart openers which invigorate the adrenal system and strengthen the back muscles. Regular practice balances all the systems of the body, activating and toning the muscle, bones and organs. It corrects posture, restores energy and stamina, clears the body of toxins and soothes and calms the mind.
Yoga has been part of our lives for over 18 years. We have practiced, studied but mainly enjoyed yoga with many teachers over this time and undertaken formal training with Yoga Works, Max Strom and Jamie Elmer, all in California, Green Lotus Yoga, Rainbow Kids Yoga, New York and Yoga Therapy Ireland.
