MESSAGE FOR YOGA BEGINNERS
Not flexible? Don’t worry! Just come with a smile and a flexible mind haha!
Many of our students hesitate to start yoga as they think they not flexible enough for yoga. Rest assured, you are not the only one thinking this. Yet we all know that for one to become flexible, one must start some kind of stretching excersise.
Why not start with yoga?
Yoga for the body
Yoga is a great way to both gain flexibility and strength, therefore it is beneficial for both men and women alike.
Some of the benefits of flexibility are:
- Improves your performance in physical activities.
- Decreases your risk of injuries.
- Increases muscle blood flow.
- Improves your ability to do daily activities.

Yoga is a physical and mental practice that originated in ancient India, dating back to the Indus Valley Civilization (c. 3500-1500 BCE) in the northwestern regions of South Asia.
The term “Yoga” in Sanskrit language means “to Unite”. There are many interpretations as to what what we are uniting and the answers may vary in accordance to the level and understanding of ones yoga practice.
Yoga practice includes poses or postures known as Asanas. Some of the famous Asanas you might recognize are Warrior poses (Virabhadrasana) or Downward facing dog poses (Adho mukha svanasana). In B. K. S. Iyengar’s 1966 Light on Yoga over 200 asanas are mentioned.
Another important component of yoga practice is the breathing or Pranayama. This can coincide with the Asana practices but also can be practiced individually. Pranayama helps one to be energized or relaxed.
Together with the Asana (physical excersise) and the Pranayama (Concentration on breathing), one is able to attain a state of self-realization.
