Yoga is a discipline of Indian origin, which can be traced back more than 5000 years. The practice of yoga is a way of life whose purpose is to help us achieve a calm mind and to live in peace with oneself, finding fulfillment in one’s life. The most common form of yoga in the west is HATHA YOGA. In Sanskrit, the language of the ancient texts, ‘hatha’ means sun/moon, the ha is ‘sun’, representing positive energies, the ‘tha’ is ‘moon’ representing negative energies. The word ‘yoga’ means union. Our quest is to come back to a place of harmony within ourselves by calming the mind and reconciling the duality which exists in our nature. A yoga class A yoga class will typically include 3 elements : 1. Postures (ASANAS) 2. Breathing techniques (PRANAYAMA) 3.

Our yogic ‘toolbox’ includes concrete methods to help us lead a more serene life, in harmony with our true nature and with others. The benefits of regular yoga practice can bring a sense of balance not only to your own life but for those close to you.
