Yoga is a bodywork which allows us to peel away the layers of tension, restore the muscles to their resting length, lubricate the joints and strengthen the bones, thereby bringing balance physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. For more details about Yoga classes in Arborfield see my About page.
Scientific research has shown that yoga improves balance, reduces fatigue, decreases anxiety, cuts stress, lifts mood, improves sleep, reduces pain and improves general well being.
Yoga is not about achieving the perfect posture, it’s about being as perfect as you can be at that given moment; it’s about being yourself. Perfect just the way you are.
The yoga philosophy incorporates breathework (pranayama), chanting, postures (asana), awareness, meditation and relaxation and its intention is to bring balance to the body and mind.
In modern life, we live in our head most of the time, thinking, planning, remembering, worrying, anticipating, imagining. Yoga allows us to bring awareness to our bodies, opening up our sensations to the present moment, here and now. It helps us to realise, that the mind and body are interconnected, in the process of being, working in harmony to achieve balance.
As we connect to our body with the breath, we bring calm to the mind and find a place of inner peace. Learn something new or deepen your Yoga practice at Arborfield Villiage Hall. For class times and what to expect see here.
