I first started doing Yoga and Pilates classes over 10 years ago to help improve my flexibility, strength, and provide a time where I could stop and relax (we all need a bit of this don't we). Beingtrained in the Soloman Yogalates™ method I am able to share the best of both Yoga and Pilates. Soloman Yogalates™ is a mat based method that utilises resistance bands to emulate the resistance training of Pilates.
The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word 'yuj ' meaning to 'yoke' or 'bind' and is often interpreted as 'union' of the body, mind, breath and spirit. Around 2000 years ago the Indian sagePatanjali is believed to have compiled the practice of yoga into a collection of statements or threads known as the Yoga Sutras. These serve as a philosophical guide book for most of the yoga that is practiced today.
I hope that you find all you need to know either contained here or through suggested links. Yoga is an ancient discipline, that has been passed down, through thousands of years, in a tradition ofteacher to student. There is an exchange of energy, warmth and humour in that learning process that cannot easily be drawn from a book. Classes help to supplement and aid our own self practice.

With the pace of the world getting faster and faster and increasing levels of stress we all need something to keep us centred and grounded and to bring us peace and calm. When we become caught up inthe rush of life then we need a little time to take a step out, move into stillness focus on the now and just be. Just a little time put aside for your yoga practice brings numerous benefits both physically and mentally. Stress affects us in every way - mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
