IMG_1850The ultimate spiritual aim of Yoga is Self-Realisation, understanding our true nature.

In addition, regular Yoga practice benefits at the immediately tangible levels

  • Peace and calmness of the mind
  • Powerful body and improved physical posture
  • Purity and vitality of spirit

The main components of a regular Yoga practice are

  • breathwork – Pranayama
  • physical postures – Asanas
  • developing concentration – Dharana which leads on to meditation – Dhyana

Yoga is suitable for everyone, no matter what your age or how stiff you feel, and there is no particular favoured body type.  As Richard Freeman, the Ashtanga Yogi says “No-one can do all the yoga postures!”, but you will certainly notice the transformational changes as your practice develops.
