Yoga is so much more than just a physical practice. It is the connecting of the mind with the body, the body with the mind.

Yoga promotes a strength of body and mind that protects you from physical or postural dysfunction, and in doing so minimises the chance of physical injury or the reoccurrence or onset of a physical condition.
