The name Yoga originally comes from the Sanskrit translation for ‘Union’.
Yoga specifically relates to combining the practice of the physical body and the mind, by using our breath to create unity as we flow through dynamic sequences. This action allows us to end with a meditative practice to give the body and mind chance to find comfort and stillness. Yoga offers us practical methods to explore a subjective experience of self-enquiry. A practice where we can build strength, awareness and harmony to the mind and body. While there are many types of yoga, most sessions include asanas (postures) that breathing exercises and meditation. The main benefits of yoga are designed to increase strength, balance and flexibility and mental health wellbeing.

What to expect
Whether you are an experienced yogi, a first-time caller or anywhere in between, yoga offers everyone options to challenge and reward. The type of Yoga we offer is Hatha Flow practice. This style of yoga combined classical hatha postures that flow from one to another with some pauses added to ensure there is time spent in postures to enable the strength and flexibility adaptations. This practice is suitable for all levels with modifications offered for both beginners and advanced yogis. Throughout class you will be guided in and out of postures working to your own capability knowing that there is no competition in a yoga practice. Hatha flow allows you to connect your body and breath whilst we gently flow through rhythm sequences building some heat yet remaining grounded.
We have showers and changing facilities, please wear gymwear (ie. leggings or shorts and a t-shirt and a towel are ideal). You are welcome to bring your own matt if you have one, however everything is provided at the session. You may also want to bring a bottle of water.

What our patients say about us
Peter did some great work on my
neck in recent months and cannot recommend him enough.
Hope the new venture is a success.
Peter is everything one needs from a sports healthcare professional. He knows his onions, cares about his clients and, in my case at least, consistently and effectively solves the issues that bring me to him.
