Why should you practice Therapeutic Yoga?
The ancient yogis wanted to find a way to become one with creation. They lived amongst the astounding beauty of nature and watched the earth, sun, moon, sky, trees, animals, and insects. They developed postures and practices that mirrored nature and thus learnt a way to truly connect with creation. Yoga has survived all the changes in the world, politics and disagreements and is with us today because it is a proven way to guide us back to our true nature. Bringing our body, mind and soul into unity and connecting with our true nature fills us with peace and radiance. It’s then that we start to glow with the life force that sustains all beings. This is the same life force that moves the tides, grows a tree and energises the sun. Therapeutic Yoga aligns you with and awakens you to this life force through its subtle yet powerful energy based movements, affirmations, exploration of the koshas and specific breathing techniques.
