Yoga is an excellent way to improve your health. A class will consist of postures that are designed to stretch the whole body, improve flexibility, strength, stamina and balance. Through the practice tension and stress are released and a feeling of calm results. Yoga is about balance. Physically it stretches & strengthens where necessary. Emotionally it removes peaks & troughs.
