Yoga is a celebration of the human body. It stretches, strengthens and cleanses the physical body - improving posture, muscle tone, digestion and immunity. It helps us lead a healthier and more vital life.

During a yoga class a range of physical shapes (poses) are made with the body to strengthen and tone the muscles, improve posture and enhance flexibility.   These shapes move the body in different ways, stretching and strengthening the front, sides and back of the body which in turn positively affect all the body’s internal systems. Yoga has the potential to reduce blood pressure, improve fertility and lots more.
