What is Yoga?

Yoga has a focus on structural alignment of the physical body. It aims to bring the body, mind and spirit together for health and well-being through the development of ‘asana’ and ‘pranayama’. Asana is the performance of posture with a focus on detail, precision and alignment. Pranayama is the breathing control that is developed through the practice of asana poses and movement. They both combine to develop strength, mobility and stability.

Yoga is suitable for all ages and abilities with the use of props and the ability to modify specific movements depending on injury, illness or ability.
