Why practice Yoga..?

Yoga will relax you. Yoga will center your mind. Yoga will unravel tension buried deep within. But that is just the beginning… Yoga will give you a stronger sense of who you are. It will develop your awareness of what matters and deepen your resolve and commitment to living consciously. Yoga will free you from limitations, giving you greater ease, freedom and joy for life. Yoga philosophy refers to the union of the body, mind and soul. This is done using the physical body, as well as the awareness of breath, meditation and other techniques. Not only you will physically benefit from the postures, but also you will soon experience positive changes in many aspects of your everyday life.
