Yoga is a centuries-old practice that includes postures (asanas) and breathing techniques (known as pranayama). These techniques can lead to fundamental benefits across the entire spectrum of body, mind and spirit. As a result of practice, people have reported feeling more focused, connected and settled, less tense, stressed and anxious, and having increased concentration and creativity.
While there are many types of yoga practice, it has an overall harmonising effect and stimulates 'right brain’ function - which brings us more into our sensory awareness of the world around us, as well as pacifying the ‘inner chatter’ in your mind. This essentially alleviates the sense of division between you and your outer world and relates to the archetype of how yoga makes you feel at ‘One’.
There are many other documented facets of yoga and to some degree, each individual will have a unique experience of the class as it uniquely impacts your own inner world!
