Yoga is essentially a practice to bring about ease- Ease in the body, Ease in the mind = Ease in living. A tool for bringing about ease is through conscious breathing. Therefore breathing is at the heart of the yoga practice. Yes- we love the postures (asana) and all the benefits this physical part of the practice can bring, but at the end of the day, I think it’s fair to say that extra element people are often looking for when they slip their shoes off and roll out their mat, is a connection to something steady, still and centered. Connecting with the Breath has the capacity to for an array of balancing effects to steady and soothe, or to fortify and energize- it is an amazing tool in our practice. Come to our classes and see how we … Just breathe ….
We would love to share our breath-centered yoga classes with you. Join us, be curious, open and connect with Cammeray Yoga- a dedicated yoga space.
FAQ’s about getting started with yoga which we hope inspire you to give it go!
