One of the oldest and most practiced forms of self-development, yoga is a very comprehensive system that also aims to balance and strengthen the body and the mind. Originating in India, and evolving as a way of relaxing the body to enable deeper meditation, a series of different postures (Asana) and breaths (Pranayama) were devised.
By using a mixture of the postures - which will vary depending on your flexibility - individually or in sequence, with some simple breathing techniques and patience, it is possible to work the whole of the body and mind, helping to create and maintain strength, flexibility, fluidity and softness. Because of the huge range of different postures, and because it doesn't matter how far you stretch, yoga is accessible to all ages and abilities.
As practicing even a little yoga brings many positive results, most people feel improvements to their posture and health almost immediately.
