“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
- Siddhartha Goutama Buddha

What is Yoga?
Yoga means ‘union’ or ‘connection’. In Sanskrit, the word ‘yoga’ is used to signify a form of bond or connection: Yoga is both a state of connection and a body of techniques that allow us to feel our connection to all life.
Conscious connection to something allows us to feel and experience that thing, person, or experience on a deeper level. The experience of connection is a state of yoga, a joyful and blissful, fulfilling experience.
Awareness is the secret of yoga, and the gift of a full practice.
