Traditional Yoga uses asanas (all those wonderful postures) and movement as the physical part (or limb) of a greater self-regulating system that includes meditation, focused concentration and breathing techniques with an outlook on life to bring health and happiness. It is a practice to bring the mind, body and spirit into a sense of balance, working towards the same goal – YOUR wellbeing.
We would like to take a moment of your time here to dispel a common myth or misunderstanding about yoga. It is not a religion, merely a way of life that follows a set of policies and procedures. P&P’s keep businesses running smoothly and effectively, just as the P&P for Yoga (Eight Limbs) can help us be more balanced and happier.
Yoga is a tool to bring health to all aspects of your life and looks at your body not merely as moving parts, but as a whole being to build strength and flexibility. Some yoga is slow and restorative, holding postures with focus on the breath, other styles are flowing and gentle using movement, others dynamic, powerful (and even sweaty). Grab yourself a pair of Yoga Pants and start practicing!
Pilates is the baby brother of yoga (just 100 years young), developed using the traditional yoga theory and mind body connections for our more modern approach to health. A more mainstream adaptation of yoga, Pilates a series of exercises that focuses on your body’s core muscles. These include the abdomen, obliques, lower back, and glutes. The exercises are designed to improve your strength, flexibility and exercise your mind by pairing the movement with breath control.
