The practice of Yoga asanas (poses) develops strength and flexibility, while calming the mind. Improvements in joint mobility, flexibility, circulation, digestion, decreasing stress levels, anxiety and fatigue are just some of the benefits of Yoga.
The word yoga means ‘to join or yoke together’. It brings your body and mind together, and is built on three main elements – exercise, breathing and meditation.
The exercises of yoga are designed to put pressure on the glandular systems of your body, increasing your body’s efficiency and total health. Breathing techniques increase breath control to improve the health and function of body and mind.
Because Yoga brings together the body and the mind, improves strength, flexibility and joint mobility, it is a powerful supplement to other types of fitness including HIIT and Pilates.
