Yoga is thousands of years old. It means different things to different people. To some it is purely a form of exercise – to others a way of life. Neither is right or wrong – it is what it is and can mean different things at different life stages.
In the west many people do not realise that Yoga is not confined to just the physical practise or Asana, and the media has unfortunately made many people feel that it would not be appropriate for them as they do not have the ‘right body’ or level of flexibility or that they are too old.
Here at Body Nurture yoga is suitable for all levels – our classes are small so we can always cater for beginners. Classes may include chanting, breath work and meditation.
Thousands of years ago the great sage Patanjali shared ’The Eight Limbs of Yoga’. These ancient texts are like a guide – showing guiding us along the path for living and experiencing our lives life to our full potential.
