When practiced slowly and mindfully, Yoga allows you to attune to what’s happening inside, reconnect with a sense of safety, and bring vitality and aliveness in one's body and mind.

Regular yoga practice promotes a deeper connection between the body, mind and emotions.
While there are 8 limbs of Yoga according to Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, Asanas (Postures) and Pranayama (Breathing) form the bulk of practise in most yoga classes.
Asanas serve to not only keep one's physical body healthy but also serve to prepare it for meditation.
Breathing brings one in contact with the present moment, anchors the mind in the body and helps to switch off the minds “chatter”. It prepares the body to be still and turn ones focus inwards.
