“Yoga is an holistic practice that brings life and awareness to our bodies and so is suitable for every body. Yoga encourages relaxation, flexibility and strength in a completely gentle and non competitive way. Yoga improves posture and helps to release stiffness and tensions in your muscles and joints. It can help alleviate common problems such as backache, tiredness, constipation, insomnia and anxiety. It will increase your vitality, reduce stress levels and bring greater awareness of body, breath and mind.”
