What is Yoga?
Very simply, yoga can mean ‘union’ or ‘focusing of attention’ – depending on the tradition of origin. However, through the practice of yoga, we aim to integrate mind, body and spirit, fulfilling our potential for vibrant good health. This includes a strong, supple body, clear and calm mind.
There are many ways in which yoga can be practised. Most people in Western culture begin with postures – asana, and work with the breath – pranayama. When yoga begins in this way it is known as Hatha Yoga. Some well known forms of Hatha Yoga are Astanga Vinyasa Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Vinyasa Flow.
Amanda studied Astanga Vinysasa Yoga for some years: astanga meaning eight limbs, while vinyasa means ‘breath connecting movement’. Flowing movements synchronised with the breath are characteristic of ‘vinyasa,’ and also of Sun Salutations which are practised at the beginning of the Astanga series and in many of Amanda’s classes.
