Yoga originated in ancient India as a spiritual practice of self-enquiry. The teachings of Classical Yoga address the causes of human suffering and suggest that freedom from suffering is possible if the distracted mind can be brought to stillness.
Modern yoga offers a practice based on ethical principles and grounded in the wisdom of the body moving and breathing. Yoga teaches self-awareness and allows us to free ourselves from negative patterns that cause pain and frustration.
Practising yoga brings many benefits: greater strength, suppleness, and stamina; reduced anxiety and stress; a capacity for stillness and peace of mind. Yoga is not a dogmatic system and people of many faith traditions and none find yoga invaluable in their spiritual journey towards simplicity and peace.
‘Yoga’ is most frequently associated in the West with the practice of physical postures, but yoga is also a wisdom tradition containing a wealth of insight on human existence.
Short Courses in Yoga Philosophy run throughout the year offering an introduction to the key texts of the yoga tradition.
