The word ‘Yoga’ means ‘union’, to ‘unite’ ourselves with the universe. The connection between mind and body, breath and movement means that by practicing yoga, you can switch off the internal ‘chattering’ in the mind and channel your thoughts into your asaans (postures) and pranayama (breathing).
Yoga is a way to achieving a leaner, more toned, more streamlined body yet it can also become a way of life and a commitment to a new and better way of living. The combination of calming the mind, whilst stretching, cleansing and detoxifying the body can be rejuvenating and a natural stress reliever.. Give it a try.

Gemma came to yoga during pregnancy and credits a daily practice of asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) for keeping her mind and body healthy, and her ability to take life in her stride as a busy mum of four.
Since completing her 200 hour teaching training, Gemma has attended workshops with inspirational teachers such as Coral Brown, Tara Stiles, Kino MacGregor and David Swenson and she firmly believes that "a great teacher never stops being a student ".
