Yoga & Mindfulness

Yoga is an activity which involves stretching the body and forming different poses while keeping your breath under slow control. This ancient practice helps the body become both relaxed and energised at the same time.

Yoga is thought to be the oldest defined practice of self-development with many people now understanding its benefits not only for physical health, but also for mental health and wellbeing.


There are many benefits of practising yoga for your physical and mental health:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Sounder sleep
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower heart rate
  • Spiritual growth
  • Improved sense of wellbeing
  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Increased strength and flexibility

As you can see, the benefits of yoga are so numerous, it gives a great all-round result for the amount of effort involved – and all you need to do is show up!
