Benefits of Yoga

How long have you got! This is a very long list…that’s why it has endured for millennia, because it works delivering tangible wellbeing benefits physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. A few of them are in the table below…are there any that would make a difference to your life?

I guess the best answers come from my students who can tell you the benefits they get from their practice:

“Wasn’t expecting a more relaxed state of mind, or the ability to reduce stress through breathing. Fabulous!”

“”Reduced all over body pain (fibromyalgia). Yoga helped me to get back into other exercise, and I have also lost 17kg since starting.

“Am getting the increased strength and flexibility I thought I would, and better, thank you ! And that’s only after one class per week.”

I was surprised about the improvement in my breathing, which has helped with my singing and sleeping! also my posture. Although I still experience a bit of pain with my back I am definitely feeling, noticing an improvement!

Yoga seems to have given me more energy-especially straight after class and the next day.
