Yoga in the Satyananda Tradition - A Holistic Approach

What is YOGA?

The word ‘Yoga’ means ‘Union”. It is an ancient system that includes, physical postures - asana, breathing practices- pranayama, relaxation techniques – yoga nidra, meditation and mantra, all aimed at bringing balance (union) and health to body, mind and spirit.

Why do YOGA?

The practice of Yoga leads ultimately to increased calm, concentration and personal awareness bringing about greater health and wellbeing. These effects may be experienced as a greater sense of contentment and ability to go with the flow of life, a more balanced lifestyle, a happier home and more productive in the workplace

Who can do YOGA?

Anyone can benefit from Yoga. Yoga is practised at your own level of fitness and expertise with no competition with yourself or others. Yoga practitioners vary from school students to elderly people, may be male or female, sick or well, very fit or very unfit. There is no limitation on who can practise and benefit from Yoga. You are not expected to embrace any particular philosophy.

What to expect in a YOGA class

My Yoga classes are gentle and relaxing. You work at your own level and tune in to your intuition and the wisdom of your own body. Questions are encouraged.

What to bring to a YOGA class

  • or cushion, meditation stool (if you have one), blanket for warmth and a mat to lie or another blanket

  • loose comfortable clothes

Classes are conducted with the school term.
