Hatha yoga Gita style
Through working with all the body systems, glands, major organs and the seven chakras (energy centres), Gita yoga addresses the stresses and tensions that can contribute to, or even cause imbalances that lead to illness and disease. Yoga is characterised by it’s effect, not by perfection of postures and therfore is suitable for people with all levels of fitness and/or flexibility.
Benefits of Hatha yoga
Yoga exercises, such as gentle stretching, breathing and guided relaxation, release body tension and calm the nervous system and emotions.
Concentration, attention and focus are promoted by a yoga practice of mindful movement and body awareness. Balancing postures, in particular, build concentration.
Holding yoga postures creates isometric exercise which tones every part of the body, including the internal organs.
Yoga exercises the glands, organs and the endocrine system, massaging, toning and increasing circulation to stimulate, heal and eliminate toxins from the body.
Yoga postures gently stretch the muscles in the body, increasing flexibility and lengthening the muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Slow gentle movements with deep breathing energise the body rather than tire it. This, in combination with yoga’s relaxation and healing benefits, allows daily renewal and nourishment of the body-mind-sprit.
