People choose to take yoga and/or somatics classes for a number of reasons: to build strength and flexibility; relieve tension, joint and muscle pain; improve posture and muscle tone or to overcome stress and anxiety. At a deeper level, the sessions also help us to develop confidence, self esteem, balance and peace of mind.
Yoga helps us to develop physical, mental and spiritual well being and originated in India over 3,000 years ago. The asanas (postures) we practise strengthen and support our muscles and joints and help to enrich the blood supply to our glands and organs improving their function. Breathing techniques massage our internal body as well as help to calm the mind, preparing it for meditation.
