How Does Yoga Work?
Some translations of the word Yoga are “harnessing” and “Union”.
Studies have shown that shifting your physiology dramatically shifts your emotional and mental state; Yoga is the art of harnessing your body, mind and emotions to bring them into unity.
Our Yoga classes provide a path that leads to better physical health and mental well-being, it is an array of techniques associated with simple movements, breathing, concentration, relaxation and meditation.
Iyengar Yoga (a form of Hatha Yoga) is a very precise and dynamic way of practicing “Asanas” (postures and positions). You will gradually be introduced to the Asanas through sequence, timing and the use of props such as blankets, blocks, straps, walls and chairs. Props are used to perform the Asanas correctly and more precisely, minimising the risk of injury or strain and making the postures easily accessible to both young and old.
An unhealthy body can be a burden to your mind making your thinking cloudy and continuously keeping you in a bad emotional state. Likewise an unhealthy mind has the same effects on the body by keeping muscles tense, influencing our posture and the way we breathe. As you continue with your Yoga sessions you’ll notice the increased control you have over your mind and body which ultimately allows you to have a better quality of life.
Benefits of Yoga
A short time time after starting your Yoga classes you’ll notice your body will begin to function more effectively because:
- Your body is brought back into balance
- Weak areas of your body are strengthened
- Your chest and lungs become more open
- Your muscles lengthen and relax releasing unhealthy toxins
Through regular practice of Iyengar Yoga, you will build strength and flexibility as well as inner and outer balance of your mind and body.
In western culture people have treated the mind and body as separate but, we are quickly adopting the knowledge that ancient cultures have known for millennia, that the mind and the body are inseparable. This is important when you want to increase your fitness because working towards a healthier mind will increase the results from your other fitness sessions, you will have a higher awareness and connection to your body which will enable you to learn what your body needs in order to be in your optimum physical and mental condition.
Yoga is a holistic approach to health and fitness and works in the opposite way that we have been conditioned to deal with physical problems and the stresses of life. Instead of curing ailments, yoga shifts your mind and body into a new place of health and wellness. When you live in a place of health and wellness; sickness, injury, stress and ailments will be significantly minimised due to the increased strength of your mind and body.
