What is Yoga?



Yoga means “union” of the mind, body and soul to experience a sense of oneness and the practice by which we achieve this inner peace.

 

Hatha yoga uses “asanas” or postures and “pranayama” or breathing as techniques to gain control over the mind and “prana” or energy in the body.

 

Asanas should be practiced by directing awareness to the breath, movement, body sensations and without judgement.

 

Maintaining a regular practice with patience and focus will develop a calm and settled mind producing quality results.
