NEW TO YOGA?
Here are a few questions I hear from my clients...
WHAT IS YOGA? or what does yoga mean
Yoga is the science of rightful living and, as such, is intended to be incorporated in daily life.
It works on all aspects of the person: the physical, vital, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual.
The word YOGA means 'Unity' or 'Oneness' and is derived from the Sanskrit word Yuj which means to Join.
Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonizing the body, mind and emotions.
This is done through the practice of yoga postures, breath work, visualizations, inspirational readings, mindfulness meditation, relaxation.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF YOGA?
Physically, a regular yoga practice is one of the best things you can do for your body.
- Stimulates muscles, nerves and organs.
- Releases tightness
- Reduces strain
- Improves circulation
- Strengthening the immune system
- Supports healthy digestion
Yoga has a profound effect on your emotional state.
- Improves concentration
- Increases confidence
- Quiets a busy mind.
- Stress-related symptoms
there's simply nothing better you can do.
I'M NOT FLEXIBLE - CAN I DO YOGA ?
The practice of Yoga can make your body more flexible giving your muscles and your joints a greater range of motion.
A supple, flexible body is less prone to injuries because it can withstand physical stress.
Yoga is a practice….As long as you give your best effort, you will receive the same therapeutic benefits as someone who has practised for years.
Strength - Flexibility - Balance
WHAT TYPE OF YOGA DO I TEACH?
styles include Beginners, Gentle, Kundalini, Restorative & Yin.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO CLASS?
Wear clothes that allow you to move freely. Stretchable fabric is most desirable.
IS IT OKAY TO EAT BEFORE PRACTICING YOGA?
A small snack fruit, almonds, smoothie, 1 hour before class is ideal.
