What To Expect

How Yoga Works
Yoga is particularly effective because it is a holistic practice, the combination of physical movement, mindfulness & relaxation allows the body & mind to release tension & become better able to heal.  A regular Yoga practice can promote a firm foundation for general health and well being.

Everyone can do Yoga
Yoga is helpful & enjoyable for all. We do not need to be flexible & fit to practice, even people who feel unfit can start yoga. The most important thing to remember, to practise yoga safely & enjoyably, is that Yoga is an ongoing 'practice'  & we do not need to get into the sometimes complicated looking postures that we see in yoga books to benefit.  Lying down and consciously relaxing is as much yoga as a strong physical practice.

What makes yoga so empowering 
is that it's something you learn to do for yourself
You become responsible for your own health & wellbeing
