What is Yoga?


dsc00045smallerYoga is a discipline that means union. It is the union of physical poses (asana) and breathing techniques (pranayama) that combine to bring the body and mind into harmony. Yoga is a path to that illusive center we are all seeking, it’s a path to inner peace.


Most importantly, yoga is a way of life. It is an integrated system of education for the body, mind, and spirit. The physical postures provide the body with a way to build strength and muscle tone, increase flexibility and balance, as well as condition the cardio-vascular system. Integrating the breathing techniques with the postures helps to focus the mind as well as generate enormous amounts of energy.

Yoga is for every body. Yoga can be practiced by individuals of all ages and fitness levels. It is non-competitive; thereby everyone practices at his or her own pace. At ABSOLUTE YOGA, instructors are particularly mindful of the individual needs and abilities of each student. Yoga is a process, not a goal.
