An introduction to the practice of YOGA by Sharon George
(RYT, RMT, IWCA, ICRT)
What is Yoga?
Yoga is a complete health and fitness programme. It is not a religion, more a way of life.
Yoga is a holistic system for creating inner and outer strength. It uses tools and techniques such as physical postures ( asanas), breathing techniques ( pranayama ), philosophy (Yamas/Niyamas) and meditation (dhyana ) to meet our lives with more harmony and joy.
Yoga originated in India 5,000 years ago. Yoga means ‘Union’ and joins mind, body, heart and soul. It has brought enjoyment to people & has joined communities together worldwide.
