What is Yoga?

The Sanskrit word Yoga is translated as "Union".  The practice of Yoga helps to co-ordinate the breath, mind and body to encourage balance both internally and externally and promote feelings of both relaxation and ease.  In the West the most widely form of yoga taught is Hatha Yoga.  Yoga classes offer students postures and movements to stretch, strengthen and flex the body, to develop breath awareness, to relax and sometime to meditate.  Some classes may be low impact whilst others may be very demanding.
