The word yoga, is from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means to yoke or bind. It is often translated as a union of the body and mind, or a method of discipline.

The origins of yoga sutra can be traced back to 2000 years ago and it remains a philosophical guidebook for most yoga that is practiced today. The sutra also outlines the eight limbs of yoga: the yamas (restraints), niyamas (observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyani (meditation), and samadhi (absorption).

Today, most people practicing yoga are engaged in the third limb, asana, which is a programme of postures designed to purify the body and increase physical strength.

The word hatha means wilful or forceful. Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as postures) and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles and bones.

The postures aim to open the many channels of the body, especially the spine, so energy can flow freely.

Hatha yoga is a path towards increased strength and flexibility, creating a powerful tool for self-transformation. We bring our attention to the breath to still fluctuations of the mind and become present in each moment.

Om is a mantra or vibration traditionally chanted at the beginning and end of each yoga session.

It is said to be the sound of the universe. Nothing in the universe is still, instead it pulsates, creating a rhythmic vibration ancient yogis acknowledged as the sound of Om.  

Chanting Om allows us to recognise our experience as a reflection of movement of the universe — from the setting sun to the rising moon, flow of tides and beating of our hearts. As we chant Om, we journey through our breath, awareness and physical energy to sense an uplifting universal connection.
