The word yoga is derived from the sanskrit root yuj meaning to bind join attach and yoke, to direct one’s attention on, to use and to apply. It also means union and communion. So in essence a yogic practice involves a holistic approach and the principles of compassion and an understanding of the interconnectedness of the whole of life. Imagine the effects of a single rain drop on a smooth lake…

I consider myself a cynical idealist, so finding yoga has helped me see the parallels in all the many academic disciplines. Ultimately I see them all as different languages seeking to enquire, discover, document and find meaning to life.where the  metaphorical paths cross is where a sense of peace can be found.

Yoga is a big umbrella term which incoorperates many aspects; the 8 limbs of yoga cover the foundations from which we can develop but it is down to the individual how to apply them. I try to make the yoga I facilitate fun and dynamic,challenging both in the mind and body as well as peaceful and reflective. I encourage openess self honesty and non competitive, everyone is special and unique and developing healthy habits of the mind with asana, pranyama and meditation gives one the awareness to reveal what already existed.
