Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit.
The practice of yoga makes the body strong, supple and flexible, it also improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal systems. Yoga brings about emotional stability and clarity of mind. The continued practice of yoga will lead you to a sense of peace and well-being.
Yoga is distinctly different from other kinds of exercise. When practiced correctly, it generates motion without causing strain and imbalances in the body.
When practiced regularly yoga can be a quite demanding, yet an immensely rewarding type of exercise. While Viniyoga is not aerobic, it involves almost every muscle in the body and challenges the body to work in a different and often more passive way, unlike other conventional forms of exercise.
A consistent yoga practice can still and quieten the mind, refresh the body, bringing health, vitality and better sense of self.
