Yoga is a non-competitive form of exercise for all ages and levels of ability. It has many positive effects on the body. It increases flexibility, limbers the joints, increases lung capacity, encourages physical freshness, calms the mind and body thereby boosting the immune system and giving you a sense of well-being.

Yoga is particularly effective for those who have stiff joints, arthritis, high levels of stress in their daily life, etc. Classes offer gentle stretching, yoga postures, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation. One works at their own level of ability, and there are always modifications that can be done to help one in the poses.

The principles of yoga are “sukha and sthira” which means stable and comfortable in Sanskrit.
