Our YOGA STYLES that we offer and different BYS CLASSES are outlined below and a little about the innumerable benefits of Yoga for body mind and spirit…
Benefits of a Regular Yoga Practice:
Yoga has innumerable benefits from the physical body including increased flexibility, energy, strength and mobility and can help prevent injury. Yoga Postures (asana), breathwork practises (pranayama) and meditation (dharana and dhyana) help focus the mind and balance the nervous system helping regular yoga practitioners manage stress better, as well as improve sleep quality and overall well-being. Beyond the benefits within our physical body and mind we can experience, yoga can also help us connect to our spirit or bliss state of being or a deeper sense of Self, calm and centre. Yoga can teach us tools to empower ourselves off the mat too and lead more easeful and balanced lives. We offer a range of dynamic yoga styles and classes to those more still and static with longer holds and believe all classes compliment each other and bring great benefits to the regular yoga practitioner.
For questions please call or contact us. We hope to see you at class soon x
