Yoga is an ancient practice that facilitates peace of mind.
Yoga is a system of philosophies, principles and practices derived from both the Tantric and Vedic traditions of India and the Himalayas, more than 2500 years ago. It is a practice that leads to the ultimate goal of self-realization. It is the study of the nature and workings of the mind, based on experiential practice and self-inquiry.
The body, breath and mind are observed in Yoga and the ability to concentrate is developed. Yoga takes into consideration the multi-dimensional aspects of each and every human being. Yoga practice cultivates a connection to our soul (Atman) and this union leads to greater integration of being, clarity of the mind and a sense of peace. It cultivates health and happiness, and a greater sense of self-awareness and higher consciousness.
Through the regular practice of a range of postures and movement awareness, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation Yoga allows us to experience a greater sense of wellbeing.
Yoga teaches us an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on virtuous living, harmony and truth, within each person and with each other, and with the planet.
