Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to be flexible to practice yoga but by doing so you will become flexible in both body and mind.
Yoga aims to create balance and restoration of the natural condition of a healthy body and mind.
Yoga is an evolution or a science of consciousness developed over 5,000 years ago, these are methods of self-improvement at a physical and mental level.
Practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual's mind, body and soul. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peaceful body and mind; it helps manage stress, anxiety, illnesses/diseases, burnout, fatigue and helps keep you grounded. It also helps in increasing flexibility, muscle strength and body tone.
Holistic is health care that focuses on the health of the entire body and mind and not just parts of the body. This means that having a "holistic view" is having a view where we understand both the whole and the parts of something, and we understand how the parts, when brought together, make up the whole. And when you have the whole picture of something, you have many perspectives (these are the parts of the whole).
When you first come along to ELM yoga, you will be asked to fill in a small enrolment form with some questions relating to what you want to gain by doing Yoga as well as questions around your existing health and well-being. This is so the correct advice can be given so that you do not feel any physical discomfort from the class.
Here at ELM Yoga, the studio has all the equipment you could need to practice yoga; including mats, bolsters, blocks, blankets, pillows, scented eye masks, essential oils, mini massages, hot stones as well as hot cloths for relaxation and meditative yoga. In some classes, you'll also receive tea and organic juices. You just need to come along wearing something comfortable and all Emma asks is that when you arrive on your mat, “you leave your stress, tension, worries, anxiety and ego outside the room” and she will help you do the rest.
All levels, from beginners to advanced practitioners are welcome to the ELM Yoga community and we can't wait to see you on the mat.
