About Yoga

In yoga we work to get to a state of concentration through intense physical and mental effort.  It can be seen as an art and a fascinating and helpful pursuit for many people.

Yoga can also be used to help work with the effects of problems and illnesses. In this way it can be seen as therapy.

Underlying everything is the idea of yoga as self-enquiry. Yoga can be used as a tool for understanding more of our deeper patterns by enquiring into and beyond the everyday self. This can allow our actions or especially re-actions to be less influenced by our more usual patterns and their history.

These three aspects of Yoga are mutually supportive in helping to maintain vitality, health and purpose within the commitment and challenges of  life today.
