‘Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled by the endless stresses and struggles of life’. (B.K.S. Iyengar)
Yoga is an ancient practice of self-enquiry which responds to the contemporary quest for health and wholeness.
The teachings of Classical Yoga address fundamental questions about the causes of human suffering and suggest that freedom from confusion and distress is possible if the distracted mind is brought to rest.
Refined over many centuries by successive generations of teachers, modern yoga offers a practice based on ethical principles and grounded in the wisdom of the body moving and breathing. Yoga teaches self-awareness and allows us to free ourselves from negative patterns that cause pain and frustration.
Practising yoga brings many benefits: greater strength, suppleness, and stamina; reduced anxiety and stress; a capacity for stillness and peace of mind. Yoga is not a dogmatic system and people of many faith traditions and none find yoga invaluable in their spiritual journey towards simplicity and peace.
