What is yoga and its benefits

The word 'yoga 'comes from the sanskrit word yuj, which means 'yoke or union' it is believed the practise of yoga can lead to a balance of body, breath, mind and spirit.

Yoga can benefit everyone, whatever your age, ability or experience. Yoga is non-competitive and is a unique way of exercising. You don't need to be flexible to do yoga there is a level for everybody in my classes. Yoga is about learning to listen to our body, accepting and noticing how we feel each time we come to our mat.
