Benefits of yoga

Through tried and tested techniques distilled over thousands of years, yoga provides a holistic way to overall health and happiness.

Physical benefits include strength, stability, flexibility and joint mobility. Yoga also improves the functioning of internal organs and systems, including the circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system, nervous system, and detoxification systems (egs: liver and kidneys).

Mentally, yoga cultivates concentration and discernment, patience and determination, confidence and humility. At Ziva, we focus hugely on breath, using it as key connector between mind and body. The idea is that mind and breath are inextricably linked – For example, stress results in short, irregular breaths, while calm may be associated with deeper, more even breathing. Through yoga we learn to control the breath as a means of controlling the fluctuating states of mind (vritti).

At Ziva Yoga, we offer a wide range of classes to suit your practice.
