There are many different schools of yoga but in all it’s forms, yoga is essentially a personal practice.
Modern yoga emphasises the physical aspect of the practice and has the potential to bring many benefits including a stronger more flexible body, less tension and improved posture, so we can live in our bodies more comfortably.
As well as the physical benefits, Yoga encourages us to live more consciously with greater awareness and as such can bring benefits to all aspects of daily life.
Yoga is not a religion but some practitioners find that practicing yoga enhances and supports their own religious or spiritual beliefs.
Developed experientially within the culture and traditions of pan India over the last 3000 years, modern scientists seem to be constantly uncovering scientific basis for the yoga teachings.
Yoga can mean and be different things to different people at different times in their lives. The style of yoga I practice and teach is alignment based yoga, an embodied and practical approach to yoga, breath work and meditation. As well as the physical practices, I use the teachings of yoga in all areas of my life and find my life is all the richer for it.
