The beauty of yoga is that it is for everyone. You don’t have to be an expert to reap the benefits. Whether you are young or old, yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body. It is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that has become popular as a safe and effective form of physical exercise with poses to promote improved control of mind and body and enhance well-being.
Practising yoga increases strength, flexibility and balance and can help to bring a sense of calm, reduce anxiety, boost mood and energy levels, as well as being a beneficial form of healing.
Breathwork in yoga is an integral part of creating this peaceful state, pulling your mind away from your troubles and worries to the present moment, allowing time to reconnect back to the body and to feel grounded.
Here at Holcombe Health Clinic, we offer yoga and pregnancy yoga classes in our safe and unintimidating space, to help you enjoy this wonderful practice.
