Why do Yoga?

Everyone can do yoga. Regardless of your age or current level of fitness, you will become more flexible, stronger and more balanced through doing yoga.

Regular practice of yoga benefits you in many ways:

· Relieve your joints from stiffness
· Tone muscles, building strength and stamina
· Improve circulation
· Improve balance and your whole posture
· Enhance performance in sport and other physical activities
· Reduce tiredness and improve your concentration
· Reduce stress and teach relaxation, creating confidence and
  a feeling of well-being
· Both relaxes and energizes

These effects can be felt after even the first class, and grows with continual practice.

But the real significance of Yoga is in the connection between body and mind. As confidence and sensitivity grow, freedom is found in the body and stillness in the mind. Balance, stability and flexibility are the practical skills which we develop in each posture. These skills can be transferred and used in our daily lives.

As yoga helps in balancing the basic structure of the body, it has a wide range of therapeutic uses too. Kathy has taught people with neck and back problems, during pregnancy, high and low blood pressure, spine misalignment, people with mental health problems, physical disabilities, suffering work-related stress, athletes, musicians, dancers, transition year students, children, and mothers and babies.
