A little bit more aboutYoga

The word ‘yoga’ means ‘unity’, and comes from the Sanskrit word ‘yuj’ meaning ‘joining’. Yoga centres on the attainment of balance between mind and body to discover inner peace. Steeped in history and ancient wisdom, yoga is a scientific system of physical and mental practices that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. Its aim is to help us achieve our highest potential and experience enduring health and happiness.

A unique discipline, yoga improves both the physical body by building strength, stamina and flexibility, and the mental body through concentration, awareness and creating the ability to simply relax.

What is Hatha Yoga?

The word ‘Hatha’ descends from the Sanskrit words ‘ha’ and ‘tha’ meaning ‘sun’ and ‘moon’. Hatha yoga is known to unite these pairs of opposites – the ‘sun’ being the positive and ‘moon’ being the negative.
