Welcome to the wonderful world of yoga

What is Yoga
Yoga means "joined together." The word comes from the ancient Sanskrit root word yug, which means "to unify.". Yoga is designed to enable people to begin from their immediate, present state of consciousness and move forward, day by day, into a state of wholeness, well being, and enlightenment.

The goal of Yoga is to the joining of body, mind and spirit, a conscious unification into Oneness.
Even the beginning student is able to shed much physical tension, mental/emotional turbulence, and prepare the way for a life of higher consciousness. Yoga embraces a wide range of disciplines whose ultimate goal is the joining of body, mind and spirit, a conscious unification into Oneness.

How to learn Yoga
Unlike stretching or fitness, yoga is more than just physical postures. Patanjali's eight-fold path illustrates how the physical practice is just one aspect of yoga. Even within the physical practice, yoga is unique because we connect the movement of the body and the fluctuations of the mind to the rhythm of our breath. Connecting the mind, body, and breath helps us to direct our attention inward. Through this process of inward attention, we learn to recognize our habitual thought patterns without labeling them, judging them, or trying to change them. We become more aware of our experiences from moment to moment. The awareness that we cultivate is what makes yoga a practice, rather than a task or a goal to be completed. Your body will most likely become much more flexible by doing yoga, and so will your mind.
Yoga is not a religion. People of many different faiths - Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Jews as well as agnostics and atheists, practice yoga because of its numerous benefits and life-enrichment. Many millions practice yoga for its asanas, its physical exercises, which are regularly acclaimed to be extraordinarily health-giving by many doctors around the world.

Who should learn and practice Yoga
A yoga practice can easily become an integral part of day to day activities and be the continuation of life long learning. You might start by taking a weekly class at a beginner level, but end up studying to become a yoga teacher and open your own yoga center or adopt your own home yoga practice. That's one of the beautiful things about yoga. Not only does it help to stretch and open your body, but it helps your mind and thoughts expand about yourself too.
You can start studying yoga at any age. You might consider yourself overweight and unfit. You may be in the midst of struggling with a serious illness or recovering from an injury. Perhaps you are pregnant. No matter what your physical condition, there will be a natural entry point for your yoga learning to begin.
A Yoga class tends to last from 50 minutes to 90 minutes. You may choose to study yoga in a group setting or take private instruction. Group study is regularly scheduled and cheaper.
There are many styles of yoga to choose from. Our instructor is the best instructor to make every teaching lessen be worthwhile.

Times in practice
Yoga is amazing even if you only practice for one hour a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. The more you practice, the more you have benefits. It is normally starting with two or three times a week, for half an hour, an hour or even two hours. Do it anytime as you wish and don't let time constraints or unrealistic goals be an obstacle to you. You will likely find that after awhile your desire to practice expands naturally and you will find yourself doing more and more.
