What is Yoga?
The word “Yoga” means to unifying the body with the mind – “yoking” them together.
It is an eastern science developed and evolved over thousands of years and deals with the physical, moral, mental and spiritual well being of those who practice it.
From a biomedical perspective, it is one of the finest forms of physical therapy in existence. It is able to accomplish many positive changes in our health.
From a physical side, it is capable of reversing bone and joint deformities, lowering blood pressure, increasing strength and vigor, balancing the endocrine system, stimulating weight loss, correcting spinal alignment, and aiding in recovering from chronic pain.
From a mental perspective, Yoga is an effective meditative therapy, capable of:
* reducing the chatter in the mind (monkey mind)
* stabilising the emotions
* inducing a feeling of peace and harmony
