What is Yoga?

The word Yoga means “union”, which is derived from the Sanskrit roots “yuji”, meaning “to join” or “to unite”.  It is union of a person’s own consciousness and the universal consciousness.

Yoga has been described as a science which is not only practical but a methodical and systematic discipline of techniques which helps us to become Intune with our deepest nature. Yoga is not a religious process but designed to maintain a balance and this is achieved through exercise, breathing and meditation.

Bikram Yoga

Bikram consists of 26 postures and two breathing techniques, in the same order for 90 minutes. It challenges you both physically and mentally. The purpose of bikram is to flush out toxins and manage your weight. Bikram renews and increases flexibility levels, helps burn calories, releases toxins, increases metabolism and improves memory and motor function.

Vinyasa

Vinyasa means the movement synchronised with breath and is a vigorous style based on a rapid flow through sun. It is a continuous flow from one posture to the next. It boosts your immune system, increases your strength and muscle tone, and provides detoxification and lymphatic cleanse.

Yin

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga in which poses are held for five minutes or longer. Even though it is passive and challenging due to long holds, especially if your body isn’t use to it, it helps release mental and physical stress; acceptance of all emotions; increase the circulation and blood flow; and improves flexibility and joint mobility.
