Posture or āsana is the bodily aspect of your yoga practice
Asana practice is considered important since it helps to keep the physical body healthy. Since the body is the vehicle for the soul, looking after the physical body is vital for spiritual development. Asana postures help to increase flexibility and strength, while stimulating physiological systems of the body, such as the circulatory, immune, digestive and nervous systems.
Regular āsana practice will develop mindfulness, discipline and concentration, in turn preparing the mind for pranayama and meditation. On a subtle level, asana can help to stimulate the energetic body, opening the chakras and nadis in order to allow prana to flow freely.
We offer a variety of yoga āsana classes led by certified instructors.
You don’t have to be overly flexible to get started with yoga either, as you might think. The entire reason we do yoga is to become more flexible and to strengthen our bodies. In time, you will be able to practice more complex sequences that focus on different parts of your body. If you don’t have your own yoga mat when you first start out, don’t worry – we always have spare mats that you are welcome to borrow at any time.
