The name Yoga comes from one of the Sanskrit translations for; 'Union' this union can be understood as combining the practice of the physical body as well as the mind with the use of our breath to allow us to move through a mediative flow, preparing our bodies to find comfort and stillness in our lying meditation 'Savasana'. Ultimately a chance to find the benefits we create to the body, mind and spirit on the mat which we can carry off into our daily lives. 

Yoga is Union, Freedom, Connection, Truth and a chance for us to find our Truth as we move and breath in a way that encourages a deeper listening to what's happening within.
