HEALTH, WELLNESS & YOGA
Yoga refers to a group of physical, mental and spiritual practices that are primarily designed to bring a permanent state of peace.
The healing properties of stretching, the mindfulness benefits of focus and the breathing techniques for meditation combine to create a complete wellbeing experience and one that can easily be incorporated into your wellness routine.
These are some of the wider holistic benefits that you’ll enjoy from regular and effective yoga practice:
Whether you’re a seasoned fitness enthusiast or you’re just discovering the benefits of physical movement, yoga will improve your flexibility and transform your toe-touching capabilities.
The prolonged and concentrated movements of yoga build the muscles and provide a beautiful definition.
Yoga helps reset the misalignments in the spine and neck that are brought about by our lifestyles. Sitting or driving for hours and using a computer impacts our posture and yoga counteracts this.
Yoga enhances your joints by taking them through the full range of motions. This can help prevent degenerative arthritis or painful joints.
Many postures in yoga require that you lift your own weight and this repetitive weight-bearing exercise strengthens bones and helps ward off osteoporosis.
The physical movement and relaxation techniques incorporated into yoga practice get your blood flowing – getting more oxygen to your cells, which function better as a result.

The word ‘spa’ is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase ‘Sanus Per Aquam’, which means ‘health through water’ and ‘wellness’ refers to our state of good health and combines the concepts of wellbeing and fitness together.
