What is Yoga?

Yoga means unite – integrating mind, body and spirit.

While many yoga studios avoid the ‘spiritual stuff’, we don’t. We honour the ancient tradition who’s goal is to quiet the mind, connect to our higher Selves and experience the bliss of uniting with higher consciousness. We just happen to use the body and breath as tools to calm the mind.

Yoga isn’t just about the shapes we make with our body, to us, yoga is about the shape of our lives.

And more and more people are turning to yoga to calm their mind and deal with the stress of their daily lives.
