Yoga Philosophy

“The subject of Yoga is as vast as the sky, it cannot be bound by the limit of time.  Yet, a course of study may guide a student to know from where to begin and how to proceed further. ” BKS Iyengar

When doing a Yoga practice one begins to bring the systems of the body into balance. Once one’s body has found a general sense of wellbeing one can turn their attention to the practice of Pranayama (breath work) which brings a sense of calm, lightness to life and newer sense of freedom.

Yoga even on the smallest scale of practice will bring improvements in a person’s overall general wellbeing.  It is a non religious practice that brings a human being in contact with their amazing capacities and how we are all interconnected to each other and the earth.

“My body is my temple,

Asana are my prayers”

BKS Iyengar

“Even as the spokes are fastened to the hub of a wheel so on this life breath, all is fastened.  Life moves with the life breath, which gives life to all living creatures” (S. Radhakrishnan: The Principal Upanishads)
