Benefits of yoga
Yoga teaches us about who we are and how we constitute the ultimate proof of life lived in freedom.
It is through asana (posture) and Pranayama (breath work) – that we learn to listen to ourselves and we start the process of undoing.
To me yoga is a unique therapy where we have the opportunity to listen and communicate with the self and most of all we learn to be honest (Satya) and non harming (Ahimsa)
Benefits of Asana (posture)
The internal dance in the form of asana (posture) helps to keep the body strong,flexible and relaxed.Working with the postures helps to strengthen the nervous system, massages the internal organs , aids metabolic function, lymphatic and circulatory activity helping to improve conditions including constipation, water retention and digestive disorders.
Improves respiration, energy, and vitality. Promotes cardio and circulatory health.
Benefits Of Pranayama (breath)
Better functioning of autonomic system improves the working of lungs, heart, diaphragm, abdomen, intestines, kidneys and pancreas.
Digestive system improves and diseases pertaining to digestive organs are can be cured.
General irritability due to lethargy/fatigue vanishes.
With the practice of pranayama the internal organs receive more oxygen thereby helping to facilitate the removal of toxins from the body.
Benefits of our well-being
We become more focused and relaxed and therefore we are able to cope better with stressful situations. The mind becomes still and our intentions become clearer, encouraging positive thoughts and working towards self- acceptance.
The awareness of the “un-doing” between the mind,body and soul. Helps you live the concept of “oneness”.

“The ancient self help system of yoga promotes mental and physical well- being and balance, which is vital during times of transition or uncertainty. Your experience of being pregnant and giving birth will involve great physical and emotional changes and knowing how to use and adapt yoga techniques to breathe, move and relax during this time will help you to lay deep foundations for decades of mothering.”
