The benefits of practising yoga are well-known - it increases flexibility, relieves stress, helps you sleep better and feel younger and generally promotes well-being both inwardly and physically.
Getting started may be somewhat intimidating. Will you be expected to tie yourself into knots on your first visit? Yoga In Daily Life is ideal in that it offers casual classes at all levels, as well as courses in meditation and various aspects of yoga. You can also take part in special event screenings, dinners and weekend retreats.
As a yoga centre, there's no doubt there is a spirituality here you wont find at your local gym, but there is no pressure or expectation to adopt a particular lifestyle. That also goes for how far you want to push yourself physically. The centre I go to is populated by people of all ages and body types. It's not unusual to see an AFL player stretching and twisting alongside a petite senior citizen.
