What is Yoga?
Yoga is a very ancient discipline designed to promote self-awareness. It is known to have originated in India, some 5 thousand years ago. Yoga appeared in the west towards the end of the nineteenth century. From humble beginnings yoga has grown to be very widely practiced throughout the world by people from all walks of life.
Yoga has stood the test of time because it is a discipline able to speak to every aspect of the human condition. Yoga postures, breathing and relaxation techniques talk to our bodies, our minds and our souls.
Indeed the very word “yoga” means union, uniting body mind and soul for health and fulfillment.
A yoga practice strengthens and invigorates all the bodies systems,removing toxins and stimulating circulation,toning the muscles ,leaving you feeling strong healthy and more flexible.On the mental and emotional level yoga aids concentration,steadies the emotions and calms the mind. On a deeper level the practice of yoga brings self-awareness leading one towards inner peace
Yoga is suitable for everyone. You don`t have to be young , fit and flexible to begin. Everyone can benefit , men and women of all ages, all sizes can attain benefit from yoga, you simply have to begin and then continue.
The twentieth century saw one man, Yogacharya BKS IYENGAR, totally revolutionize the practice and teaching of Hatha Yoga. Without sacrificing the purity of yoga’s original teachings he has managed through his practice and extensive writings to popularise yoga and make it accessible so that today millions follow his method.
BKS IYENGAR sees yoga as a philosophy an art and a science. On entering an Iyengar yoga introductory beginner course students are introduced first to standing poses (asanas). Here they will find an emphasis on accuracy in alignment of the body and attention to detail. They will understand that these postures are both physically challenging, penetrating every cell and tissue in their body, and mentally engaging. With regular practice Iyengar yoga students find they develop physical strength, stamina, flexibility and co-ordination. They also discover that yoga postures enhance not only physical health but bring clarity and steadiness to their mind and emotions.
Many that come to yoga suffering from a wide variety of disorders, like back and neck pain, stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and digestive disorders to name a few, soon discover that with a regular yoga practice they are able to manage their condition and find relief. Both BKS Iyengar and his daughter Dr Geeta Iyengar have worked extensively on the therapeutic effects of yoga.
In an Iyengar yoga class often props are used and modifications to classical poses made in order to help those with injuries, those with stiffer bodies develop understanding and strengthen their bodies and quieten their minds. Flametree Yoga Studio has a wide range of yoga props for sale including bolsters, mats, foam blocks and belts.
