Yoga is a process of self-transformation. The mind is engaged to develop awareness of and transform one’s physical and mental state. The body, in the form of various postures (or asanas), is used as a tool to achieve this.
At our school the poses are taught in the tradition of the Iyengar system. They are done dynamically so as to make the body strong and supple. Instruction is given on how to align and fine tune the postures as this brings more energy into the body, focusing the mind and developing understanding and clarity.
Aside from this process the poses in themselves, when done correctly, have various physical, physiological and psychological effects, improving health and maintaining an overall sense of well being.
You don’t need to be flexible to do yoga. The most essential thing is to be open-minded and willing to learn.
The key to progress is practice.
