“The body benefits from movement.
The mind benefits from stillness.”
Yoga is the science of wellbeing. Practising yoga regularly will benefit your body, mind and sense of wellbeing.
Yoga improves all round fitness, making you more physically fit as well as more mentally and emotionally balanced. Yoga is one of the best ways to de-stress and calm your mind. You’re likely to notice that you may sleep better, get fewer colds and generally feel more peaceful, relaxed and at ease.
Yoga postures, breathing techniques and relaxation or guided meditations are a great way to release the stresses of the day. Practising yoga regularly helps to make your body flexible and strong. Yoga postures tone the body muscles and this helps to improve the body’s posture when standing, sitting, walking or sleeping. Better posture has the added benefit of helping to relieve your body of any aches due to poor posture.
