Yoga is a science that has evolved over centuries although it means something different to each person it is rooted in oneness or returning to the Source. Throughout history, it has been split into various “schools” focusing on different aspects of yoga. Each branch is of the same ‘oneness’ tree. Yoga means union.

Our yoga classes teach breath and yogic postures to help maintain a healthy spine helping to strengthen the nervous and glandular systems. Each class can help one become aware of much more than just the strength of the body. It helps to facilitate a change physically and emotionally. Practitioners leave class with a deeper connection to their bodies, muscular flexibility, strength, relaxation, concentration, and overall well-being and health.

Yoga is not a religion at all. It is a science of the breath and movement. It gives you more conscious awareness of being you instead of seeking outside yourself for the answers.

You do need to practice on an empty stomach. It is recommended that you do not eat at least 3 hours before practice. If a special condition prevents this, eat easily digested foods, i.e. fruit or yogurt one hour before class.

Entering classes late is disturbing to others. If you do arrive a few minutes, last please enter as slowly and quietly as you can. Please remember to turn off your mobile phone before entering class. Many thanks.
