Yoga and its benefits

Yoga promotes general good health.  Some of the benefits are:


  • Provides energy and stamina
  • Increases strength and flexibility
  • Enhances lung capacity and breath control
  • Improves circulation and digestion
  • Promotes flexibility in the spine, joints and neck


  • Fosters greater clarity, concentration, creativity
  • Enhances alertness throughout the day
  • Creates mindful present awareness


  • Promotes greater emotional balance and calm
  • Eases depression, lethargy and lack of motivation
  • Enhances positive attitude

One of the best things about yoga as a form of exercise is that it is not competitive and postures can be modified to suit everyone’s ability. An injury, physical limitation or condition can usually be catered for and should be discussed with the yoga teacher before the class.

Remember yoga is not about tying yourself in knots. It does not matter what you can or can’t do, there is no minimum age or skill level required. Yoga is beneficial to children and adults. Yoga is about understanding and working with your own body. All that matters is that you are committed to improving your health.
