Benefits of Yoga & Meditation

Yoga & Meditation provides a route to healing for the body and the mind. Our classes offer a Mindfulness practice that is especially helpful in reducing stress and tiredness that results from the pressures of everyday life.

Yoga poses included in the class help to trigger the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) or the body’s ‘Relaxation Response’. The PNS is responsible for balancing the body and bringing its Stress response system back into equilibrium. Stimulating the Relaxation Response helps to lower heart rate and blood pressure; it helps to healthily stimulate the immune system and keep the endocrine system operating healthily.

Classes leave you nourished, soothed, deeply relaxed and well rested. Classes also help manage depression and anxiety. Some of the reported benefits include:
