When yoga is taught safely, authentically and intelligently it serves as a natural medicine for the body, brain and nervous system. For me, yoga is an innovative fusion of movement, breath, strength, awareness, presence, self love, neuroscience, biomechanics, spiritual connection and ancient philosophy. You may have arrived here with your own perspective on yoga and what it means for you, or perhaps you are yet to experience the magic, either way know this; the practice of yoga is scientifically supported - and it's also bloody ancient. It was originally developed some 5,000 - 10,000 years ago by men! Old men. Old men who's aim was to discover the most effective way to maintain their health and longevity of life. The physical aspect of yoga (asana) was created by Monks to increase strength and stamina in the physical body thus enabling them to sit and meditate for longer periods of time working towards their ultimate goal of 'enlightenment'. MRI scans now demonstrate that regular yoga and meditation practice can change the structure of our brains and significantly improve overall wellbeing. Yoga is beneficial for everybody - EVERY BODY! Whoever you are whatever you do - yoga is good for you!
