of Yoga is an ancient and powerful discipline for cultivating physical,
mental and spiritual health. Yoga means oneness or unity (the Sanskrit
word "yoga" means to "yoke or join"). Ultimately,
yoga is about self-realisation and transformation to enable a person
to reach their full potential. The eight limb path of yoga was written
down by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras probably about 300BC.
Focuses in particular on two of these 8 paths: asanas (postures) and
pranayama (breathing exercises). It is a classical form of yoga which
stretches and tones the entire body, enhancing your level of fitness.
The main focus of these classes is asana practice (physical postures)
and concludes with a brief relaxation.
approach to yoga has become very popular in recent years, partly because
of a number of celebrity practitioners like Sting and Madonna. Progressive
techniques of breath, posture and movement, cleanse, stretch and strengthen
the body as well as focus and calm the mind. Ashtanga
yoga is a more physically demanding form of hatha yoga. The
Ashtanga Vinyasa system is based on the Primary Series of postures
taught by Shri Pattabhi Jois of Mysore in India, who is now in his
eighties. A precise series of postures is taught and students practice
the same asanas each time they practice. The system uses a slow meditative
breathing method known as ujjayi and students are expected to move
from one posture to another using the flow of the breath. Concentration
points, or "drishtis" are also taught to encourage inner
awareness and concentration.
