Yoga for YOU: supporting YOUR health and wellbeing

People come to yoga for many reasons and you will have your own.  You may want to improve your posture or support joint mobility, to move and stretch your body, to learn to relax and let go of stress and the tensions you carry.  Yoga is holistic and supports general wellbeing and all your body’s systems.  

With its body and mind practices, yoga therapy offers a practical and balanced way to help manage your health and wellbeing as it encourages awareness of the body and the mind, promotes calm and a mindful approach to life and helps you feel more connected to your inner life. 

Yoga can also support you if you’re recovering from illness or are seeking help to manage chronic health conditions.  Yoga is proven to help you manage your stress levels and mental health issues, eg anxiety and depression.  The therapeutic benefits of yoga are established and are becoming more widely known.  The good news is that there is no need for you to have any yoga experience to benefit as everything is tailored to suit you.

Your breath is hugely important to your health and wellbeing.  We all breathe and the miracle of the breath is that we don’t have to think about our breath to breathe!  But how well do you breathe?   Do you know how to use your breathing to improve your physical wellbeing and bring calm and balance to your mind?  The power of the breath, if understood and harnessed, can relax and soothe your body, bring calm to the over-active mind and encourage a deeper sense of wellbeing.

One final thing, please let go of any preconceptions you may have about the word “yoga”!  Forget the pretzel shapes, “difficult” postures or the thin and bendy bodies of your imagination.  This is yoga for YOU as YOU ARE: to meet you where you are and help support your wellbeing in a holistic way.  Age is not a barrier to finding benefit; nor is flexibility and mobility (or lack of!).  And be assured your health and other issues will be accommodated.
