Hatha Yoga, which has been practised for thousands of years, exercises every part of the body, both inside and out, maintaining radiant health. It can offer excellent stress release, can energise and revitalise, as well as leaving you feeling calm and refreshed. Yoga keeps the body strong and supple and can offer relief from backache, asthma and migraines as well as helping in many more ways. Anyone can practise yoga. It is not a religion, although it develops us spiritually.
By focusing upon the breath, we begin to develop an understanding of our true self. It all begins from within. When we learn to love and respect ourselves, through honesty and truthfulness, it becomes reflected in everyday life.
The purpose of developing a sound body is to ultimately develop a sound mind, a still mind. To practise yoga is to release oneself from the mayhem of material life. Dance with the breath and unite the mind with the body, the body with the soul and the soul with divine consciousness. Be present, release yourself from the past and fear not the future.
