Yoga is an ancient form, having been practiced in India for over two millennia and is now practiced world wide owing to its popularity. Yoga is considered to be a philosophy, a science, and an art. Yoga is a practical philosophy that aims at uniting the body, the mind and spirit for health and fulfilment. A fit and supple body can be developed though the practice of postures, also known as asanas.
Asanas work on all the bodily systems, toning the muscles, stimulating the circulation and improving overall health. The benefits are not merely physical: as the postures are mastered and techniques introduced for relaxation and breath control, you will find that yoga has the power to calm the mind, increase your concentration and give the ability to cope with tension. It is a complete system for personal development, promoting total physical and spiritual well being.
