Yoga With Amanda J
The unison of breath, movement, and awareness for physical and mental wellbeing.
Over 2000 years ago an Indian sage named Patanjali is believed to have collated the practice of yoga into the Yoga Sutra. The Sutra is a collection of 195 statements that serves as a philosophical guidebook for most modern yoga practices. It also outlines the eight limbs of yoga: the yamas (restraints), niyamas (observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyani (meditation), and samadhi (absorption). As we explore these eight limbs, we begin by observing our actions in the outer world, and then we focus inwardly until we reach the ultimate goal, samadhi (enlightenment).
Most people who wish to try yoga initially do so by practicing the third limb, the asana, which is a set of physical postures designed to purify the body and provide the physical strength and mental acuity required for long periods of meditation.
Who Is Yoga Suitable For?
Everyone! Old, young, inflexible, reduced mobility, athletes, prenatal, and postnatal. Yoga practice can be adapted so there will always be a practice that suits you. Yoga can be rigorous or very gentle and restorative. The practice can be built around you and made accessible to your individual requirements.
