Do yourself a favour and attend these yoga classes
There are many places you can do Yoga, of course, some are better than others, but for people living in the Northern Beach suburbs of Perth, this one is ideal, as it is at Hillarys.
Yoga Australia describes yoga an "ancient system of philosophies, principles and practices derived from the Vedic tradition of India and the Himalayas."
There are several different types of yoga, all of which promote wellbeing and are designed to cultivate health and happiness and a greater sense of self-awareness with higher consciousness.
Making this happen is a regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, and meditation.
In recent years, there have been a growing number of excellent studies into the health benefits of yoga. These show that the practice of yoga is safe, useful and very cost effective for a wide range of conditions and at various life-stages.
Yoga is a gentle form of exercise as they do not believe that pain is gain, and therefore, it is suitable for very many people regardless of their age and physical abilities or limitations.
Yoga generally involves an introduction, which sometimes includes some breathing exercises and/or relaxation; a physical warm-up; yoga postures, movements and stretches; and lastly, some relaxation and/or meditation.
