What is Yoga?

The word "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit root "yuj", which means "to unite" the spirit and physical body together. Yoga has evolved over thousands of years to embrace a wide range of styles and disciplines. Many people who are not familiar with yoga think of it as a means of contorting the body into strange shapes and positions. Moving into positions is only one aspect , another very important part of yoga is the way it can free the mind from confusion, de-stress and restore a sense of calm and peace.

Hatha Yoga

The word “Hatha” means “wilful and forceful”. It is a system of physical exercises and breathing control that is used in yoga.

Traditional Hatha yoga is a holistic path that includes discipline, physical postures (asana), purification procedures, breathing (pranayama), and meditation, it is also recognised as a gentle introductory yoga for people new to the practice. There are many styles of Hatha yoga from gentle to the physically challenging. Working with the physical body is often a preparation for mental and spiritual practices.

Hatha yoga teaches us to use the body as the bow, asana as the arrow and the soul as the target.

Working with the breath during yoga practice is often called Pranayama. The word is composed of two Sanskrit words, Prana, life force or vital energy (particularly in relation to the breath) and ‘ayama’ to suspend or restrain. When used in yoga, it is often translated as ‘breath control. There are many different ways of working with the breath and you will be guided through some of these in your class. Although breathing is a natural bodily function regulated by our physical need for oxygen, our moods and emotional state can affect the breath. Breathing in a conscious and controlled manner allows us to relax, to control our emotions and to help develop awareness of body breath and mind. Our breath is our connection to life and when this connection is unrestricted and strong we are stronger mentally and physically.

True relaxation is experienced by the body and mind when little or no energy is consumed. It is Nature’s way of recharging. Since every action, conscious or unconscious, uses stored energy, relaxation is necessary for good health and peace of mind. Without relaxation the body and mind become overworked and inefficient. Complete mental and physical relaxation come only with an inner tuning to a higher source. As long as we identify with this body and mind, tuning to the divine source brings the realisation that all happiness comes from within. Yoga gives the techniques for this inner tuning, enabling us to break down the boundaries that separate us from each other, and from our own Inner Selves.

Yoga, like life, can be linked to a game with levels of increasing subtlety for the more experienced player. Most people are introduced to yoga through its physical benefits and the accompanying peace of mind. The state of mind induced by Yoga can often lead us on to developing the mind and the spirit through meditation. Mediation Is a state of deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent. Meditation means ‘to become familiar with, and is a way of exploring the inner self. It is the simple exercise to familiarise oneself with the qualities of mindfulness. It is the perfect way of providing the optimum conditions for training the mind to become peaceful, clearer and calmer. It is also a very powerful tool for healing the mind body and spirit.

Yoga postures (asana’s) are physical movements practised with awareness in conjunction with breathing. They develop the strength and flexibility of muscles and joints in the whole body. Asana differ from other forms of exercise in that they are specifically designed to improve the functioning of glands internal organs and the nervous system, they help to remove muscular tension and are especially useful in countering the negative effects of stress. Asana Practice allows a balance between strength and stability. This combined with breath techniques, improves concentration and self-awareness which results in increased mental and physical resilience.
