If you’re reading this, you may already have some knowledge of yoga, but, if you’re haven’t, you may be wondering why yoga can be so helpful.

Yoga is holistic and supports the whole of your being.  Yoga helps to maintain and improve good physical health, keep your body mobile and  flexible, stable and balanced, while supporting all the systems in the body.   The management of chronic health issues is often helped by the benefits of therapeutic yoga.

It is not just your physical wellbeing that benefits.   Yoga is great for managing stress which often creates and underlies ill health.  Yoga is also proven to help support your mental and emotional wellbeing and  yoga therapy is helpful in the management of mental health issues.

Yoga teaches you to relax and encourages you to let go of the physical, mental and emotional tensions that no longer support you.   Yoga helps you to live in the present moment, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying unduly about the future.  Yoga fosters inner calm, emotional resilience and mental flexibility, enabling you to concentrate better and embrace the challenges of your daily life.  Yoga promotes self-awareness and inner connection, so you’re more likely to listen to and trust your intuition.  As the chattering mind begins to quieten, you discover inner peace and find yourself discovering the joy in your life.

One final thing, please let go of any preconceptions you may have about the word “yoga” and any ideas of twisting your body into difficult positions.  Your body might not be as flexible as you would like or once were, but that’s not really the point.  However you are, as long as you listen to your body and work within your limits, you can still keep your joints moving, stretch and open your body, learn to breathe well, relax and find some inner calm and re-connect with your inner life.  Looking after your physical and mental health is vital to living as full and active a life as you can, whilst being mindful of any health issues you are doing your best to manage.  Yoga, when it is tailored to suit your needs, can help you do that and there is no need for you to have had any experience of yoga to benefit.   This is yoga for YOU as YOU ARE: to meet you where you are and support your health and wellbeing in a holistic way.

So why not open your mind to the whole of your being, body, breath and mind?  To find out more and discuss your requirements,  please get in touch with Sarah via email at sarah@swan-yoga.co.uk or call on 07867 504539.
