Yoga can be incredibly relaxing and also build good health. It is based on bringing together the mind and body for optimal mental and physical health. Physical yoga as we know it, was originally used as preparation for meditation. Once the body is worked through the mind can begin to relax and let go and focused meditation can commence.
Yoga classes are available through most community centres and DVD’s can also be a great place to start. See Resources tab for free online yoga
There are many types yoga. I prefer a cobination of active yoga to build strength and longer held poses (yin yoga) to work the body’s deeper tissues such as joints. It is in these joints that toxins collect just like dust and dirt in the corners.
Pick a class and try it out. Many people say that yoga changes their lives and heals an amazing variety of ailments.
