No matter your background, choice of lifestyle or experience in yoga, balance is an intrinsic quality we all seek....
Please join in an exploration of the yin and the yang, the masculine and the feminine, the sun and the moon which connect, correspond and represent the laws of nature within us.
Through the king of the mind, the breath, and various practices of pranayama we will delve deeper into the mechanics of the respiratory system which hugely impact our state of equilibrium.
This regulation of prana will set the foundation for a physical practice of both dynamic and passive yoga asana; heating the body to energise and cooling the body to calm.
Natures state of homeostasis exists yet living in the fast pace of the world today, we have forgotten some of our most inherent gifts in further cultivating this state of harmony. Control of breath grants us control of body and control of mind which in turn provides the power to create a life uninhibited by emotion and in a state of flow....
Finding balance means reaching our full potential...
I look forward to sharing and providing some tools that will help you to do so.

A little bit more about pranayama:
Pranayama refers to the breathing technique in Yoga, which can work wonders in improving the overall health and the function of all the organs in the body. Pranayam is also closely linked to meditation, a crucial aspect of yoga.
Practicing the proper techniques of breathing can help you become more aware of your breath and therefore pranayama benefits are physical, emotional as well as spiritual. Some of the most common pranayama benefits are:
• Improvement in the rate of breathing
• Reduction in the heart rate as well as the wear and tear of the heart
• Helping the body get rid of excessive fat and weight
• Curing problems that are related to the digestive system
