What is Yoga?
Yoga is an ancient practice that comes from India. Its name comes from the word ¨YUJ¨ which means union, whose objective is to achieve the connection between body, mind and spirit through a set of physical and mental disciplines and practices.
Yoga is more than just physical exercise or relaxation, it is a lifestyle that heals, cares for and strengthens the body and mind.
The main objectives of Yoga are obtained above all, when you begin to listen to your own body with respect and sensitivity; when you are able to observe the processes of the mind with clarity and objectivity, and learn to live life from your own inner reality.
A class can offer you a very powerful or very gentle practice; very strengthening or very restorative; very static or very dynamic; with high technical precision or fluency.
