Yoga has long been recognised as an excellent form of exercise. This style of yoga is based around the ancient tradition of Kashmir encompassing each of us as unique beings. An empowering and fun wayto restore balance to the body through flowing sequences of deep rinsing postures, cultivating a relaxed centred mind, inner calm and harmony. For some it's a realignment of the body. For some it's a sanctuary from the stresses and pace of daily life.
Respect for yourself and others, developing self awareness, management of emotions and finding a way to deal with the pressures of modern life are all things that young children should be learning inschools and during after school play. It is during the May school holidays. In order for me to schedule the classes by age group, could you please register your interest by telling me the age of your children and where you live and I can book a venue and sessions accordingly.
I had studied with different teachers from other forms of yoga for nine years, moving from one to another. Finding Iyengar yoga in 1996 was a revelation. I quickly realised that Iyengar yoga wouldmake a positive difference to my life. I had stumbled across a senior teacher in Jayne Orton who has visited the Iyengar Institute in Pune many times, and continue to attend her classes. Gradually I saw the way yoga worked positively on the mind and emotions, through the practical tool of the poses.

I came to Yoga as a man in his 40's trying to keep fit, hold down a job and look after a family. The idea of the Yoga was to try to help combat my stiffness and lack of flexibility and to help merelax. I attended my first Yoga class - and that was it, I was hooked. I was moving with a fluidity that I'd just not experienced before and there was a feeling of inner-calm that the class and the relaxation at the end of the session gave me.
In provision of yoga Coventry is continuously growing and evolving, in various forms, through many different methods.

The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yuj which can be translated into English as "to unite, to join or to connect". The unity comes when the mind and body work as one. The word Hatha is composedof "sun" (ha) and "moon" (tha) and conveys a feeling of a balance of complimentary influences.
