BENEFITS OF YOGA
What Is Yoga?
Yoga is a path towards a holistic & healthy lifestyle which can bring balance to our physical body & delicate state of mind.
It consists of various physical postures (e.g. Asanas pose) and breathing techniques (e.g. Pranayama technique) which incorporates a deep level of concentration & inner focus. These techniques are designed to reveal specific effects on the mind which in turn affect the body.
