The word yoga describes a variety of Hindu practices developed in ancient India to unify body and mind with universal spirit, thereby encouraging physical and mental well-being.
The most important purpose of yoga is to bring about deep transformation of the individual – an awakening of intelligence that is free of dependencies and romantic beliefs and ready to meet the accelerating challenges of the twenty first century. “Ganga White”
Yoga builds up our energy reserves and can strengthen and awaken as well as relax and centre us.
Yoga postures (asanas) are designed to improve metabolism, digestion, elimination, circulation and the functioning of the glands and nervous system. By working through the muscles, nerves and the breath, we can fine tune our energy and develop a healthy sensitivity to ourselves and the environment.
With regular practice, physical and mental self-mastery can be attained, thereby becoming more self-reliant and self-confident, more at peace with yourself and the world.
Diet is also considered important to this discipline. Yoga increases flexibility, improves muscle tone, and is helpful in the reduction of stress.
