What is Yoga?
Yoga is an ancient practice that involves physical poses (asana), breath-work, concentration & meditation as well as living healthy, kind & mindful lifestyle choices. It is not about touching the toes (although this is a side benefit for some), it’s about meeting yourself fully where you are with kindness and always a sense of self love. It is the unity of breath, mind, body & spirit and connection to all that there is as well as ourselves. Yoga is not a religion, you do not need to have any sense of spiritual belief to practice (although for some it opens you up to endless possibilities). In yoga, you are the temple and it teaches you that everything you need is within.
