”… It is necessary to have a combination of hearing, thinking and meditation. When you start practising, you should not expect too much. We live in a time of computers and automation, so you may feel that inner development is also an automatic thing for which you press a button and everything changes. It is not so. Inner development is not easy and will take time.” – Dalai Lama, ‘Book of Daily Meditations’
“…You have the power to live each day exactly the way you want to live it.
Think about that – the resources to create the life you desire lie within your mind.” – Unknown
The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “union”.

Benefits of Yoga
All yoga practices work together to increase energy levels, balance hormonal and metabolic functions, increase health and wellbeing.
Many health benefits of yoga also include increased flexibility, strength and lubrication of the joints, tendons as well as toning of the muscles.
Yoga is great for kids too as it helps them become more conscious of their bodies, gain flexibility, build up their strength, improve posture, self-control, concentration and good coordination.
Most importantly, yoga is a non-competitive activity, which, when taught in a fun way, is sure to be of great benefit to your child!
Prominent and influential yoga teacher Krishna Pattabhi Jois said:
“Yoga is 99% practice and 1% knowledge.“
His favourite phrase was “Don’t think, just practice.”
