What is Yoga?
Thought to be well over 4000 years old, Yoga is an ancient practise that derives what is now modern day Northern India. While Yoga today is often referred to as a type of exercise/stretch class with the odd bit of breathing involved, what the word Yoga actually means is to find union, literally to create a ‘yoke’ between ourselves and the world around us, internally and externally, mentally and physically. Yoga is expertise in action, an effortless flow state that everyone has the potential to experience. There are countless ways to achieve Yoga- be it through meditation, chanting, study, or physical movement – but the basic principles remain the same.
Yoga is a deeper connection within ourselves, a union with the forces around us in the world, and a balance in life that brings us contentment, energy and joy.
A well planned practise of Yoga can not only help to ease aches and pains, it can also leave you feeling calmer, more energised, and more connected with life. Over time, a regular practise of yoga can help you to recognise what you truly value, providing the tools you need to craft a life for yourself that’s full of purpose, passion, and joy.
Suitable for all levels, Roo’s adaptive and modern teaching style means that there is something for everyone, from your first time on the mat to those with decades of experience. Each class is sequenced in such a way that we start from the basics, laying strong foundational techniques, before building and layering to reveal complex methodologies, this is the chance to release your physical prowess.
