Breathing techniques help us to harness the body’s vital energy and control the mind by regulating the flow of breath. When the breath flows steadily with ease the mind is calm  which leads to a state of quietness.


Relaxation brings peace to the mind and body and balance to all areas of life. Yoga is for everyone at every age and ability. It is a system which, with regular practice will promote good health, endurance, vitality and well being.
