Yoga is an ancient physical and spiritual discipline and branch of philosophy that originated in India reportedly more than 5,000 years ago. The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means “to join or yoke together,” – it brings the body and mind together into one harmonious experience.

Yoga uses stretching, movement, breathing methods, relaxation and meditation to exercise your body AND mind.

There are lots of different types of yoga: some exercise the body more and some concentrates on relaxation and meditation.

Ask lots of questions about the type of yoga being taught before signing up for a class.
