We practice yoga to address anxiety, tension, physical pain, and health issues. But more and more
in this modern world, emotional disturbances and spiritual obstacles disturb our peace of mind. They prevent us from living life to the full.
Asana, pranayama and the study of yoga and its philosophy teach us how to transform our physical,
mental and emotional patterns. By deliberately focusing on those parts of the body, such as big toes, little toes, or collar bones that normally function unconsciously, we can stabilize bones and strengthen muscles and ligaments, creating a strong, steady body which will provide a sound
foundation. In the face of conflict and challenge we can then connect with that deepest wisdom, release our greatest fears, and move beyond our limitations to act with courage, grace and compassion.
