For me, yoga is part of my life. It helps me stay fit and flexible and balanced. When I have a bad day, it lifts my mood, and when I need to get rid of excess energy or stress, it helps me release these.
Yoga has developed over a long time, originating in India and spreading all over the world. In the ancient scriptures it says: Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. The physical side of yoga – as practiced in many yoga classes – is one way of stilling the mind, of letting go of worries and preoccupations, of being in the present. At the same time it strengthens the body, helps you stay healthy and keep flexible, and helps you balance your physical, mental and emotional energies. It can build confidence and offers a much-needed time of calm in a busy world.
I teach modern Hatha yoga, which is based on postures (asanas), flows (vinyasas), breathing work (pranayama) and relaxation. My classes are friendly and welcoming.
