Benefits of Yoga

Yoga STRONG and Sunset Hatha

There are countless benefits of yoga. To me, the main one is to make you both your body and your mind feel good. The main goal of practising yoga is to counter our habitual postures - when we sit at the desk all day, do demanding sports that constantly shorten and tighten our muscles. Yoga practice is there to correct those habits, return our lenght and flexibility to us, combined with stamina and strength.

  • Increases strength, flexibility and balance
  • Promotes mental well-being, addressing stress and sleep issues
  • Helps prevent injuries
Breath

Pranayama

We often think of postures when we imagine yoga but it's the breath the helps us connect the body and the mind. Correct, conscious breathing is a large focus of each class. We also use some of the breathing techniques called pranayama, such as:

  • Ujjayi Pranayama
  • Full Yogic Breathing
  • Nadi Shodhana
Bandhas

Energy Locks

The Sanskrit word bandha means to 'hold', 'tighten' or 'lock'. On a physical level Bandhas are the ‘core’ of core strength - they act as the base, the middle and the ‘lid’ of the core, retaining life force energy. In yoga we use bandhas to stabilise, strengthen, energise and increase stillness and awareness of the body.

  • Bandhas move the energy upwards, thus allowing you to invert and jump more easily, as well as float forward and back more lightly, and twist deeply.
  • Adding the bandhas to poses can instantly create the power you need to go that extra few inches and help you master arm balances and inversions such as handstand.
  • Adding Bandhas can be one of the most transformative aspects of your yoga practice, especially as you get more advanced.
Ralaxation&Meditation

Savasana is crucial

A lot of students often struggle when they start yoga when it comes to the final relaxation - savasana, yet it is the most transformative part of the practice.

  • Calms the brain and helps relieve stress and mild depression
  • Relaxes the body
  • Savasana is a pose of total relaxation—making it one of the most challenging.
