The word yoga translates to ‘union’. It is a practice that connects the body, mind and spirit through different body postures, meditation and controlled breathing.
Yoga is an expression of life. Yoga essentially means finding the keys to the nature of one’s existence, weight loss, a strong and flexible body, glowing beautiful skin, a peaceful mind, and good health. Yoga is only partially understood as being limited to Asanas (traditional Yoga poses). As such, it is purely a physical practice resulting in our failure to realise the immense benefits of uniting the body, mind and breath.
When you are at harmony with yourself, the journey through life is calmer, happier and more fulfilling.
Yoga is known for its ability to ease stress and promote relaxation.
Importance Of Pre And Post Natal Exercise
A woman’s body undergoes significant changes before and after pregnancy. We design a program to rebuild their strength and fitness levels with proper progression. Many women, in their childbearing year, wish to commence or continue with their exercise programs during and post pregnancy to maintain their health and quality of life. A healthy strong body and positive attitude will allow you to cope with the physical and psychological challenges that may arise during your journey as a new Mother. Postnatal exercises are important after childbirth. They not only make your body fit and alert but are also important for your overall well-being.
Maintaining a physically active lifestyle is a great way for women to support a healthy pregnancy, and for them to return to a normal lifestyle soon after delivery.
