This system of yoga was devised by Swami Satyananda for the Western mind and body. It has a gentle and meditative approach and balances and harmonises all aspects of the being – including mind, body, breath, emotion, energy, psyche and spirit. The gentlest of practices can be the most impactful and powerful when practised with complete awareness. Strengthening the body, making it more flexible and mobile are not the only benefits of yoga. Learning to relax deeply and completely helps us to settle the mind and solve our problems more easily, giving us increased mental clarity and better concentration. It also helps us to sleep better. Learning to breathe correctly improves our energy levels. The benefits from a weekly class can be felt immediately but this process is accelerated and deepened with regular practice at home. This system is available to all, whatever age, ability, background or belief. All the yoga classes are in Coventry.
