What is yoga? .... a union of mind, body and spirit.
The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word "Yuj" meaning to yoke, join or unite.
Yoga is a discipline which originates from India and uses breathing techniques, physical postures and meditation to improve health and happiness. Yoga encourages a present state of being that is based on body and mind awareness in order to fully experience your wonderful (and wondrous) existence here on earth.
The benefits of Yoga range from improving health to achieving a more balanced lifestyle. Yoga acts in a wholesome manner on the various body parts in a truly holistic way. It massages the internal glands and organs of the body, which in turn help facilitate the nourishment of cells, bring more clarity and calm to the mind and improve quality of life.
My style and philosophy of Yoga?
I teach Vinyasa Flow. The word Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement." I personally see Yoga as a moving meditation, a breath-synchronized series of movements done in full awareness of the present moment.
There are many varieties of yoga and it is important to pick the right one for you. In my classes I mix: Ashtanga: a challenging physical practice made up of a series of about 75 poses Vinyasa: these forms of yoga are derived from Ashtanga and are flowing, dynamic and physically challenging styles of yoga. Anusara: this style of hatha yoga integrates heart opening poses with the principles of body alignment
