Why do Yoga?


Everyone can do Yoga thanks to its gentle movements. Yoga is a series of stretches and poses that you do with breathing techniques. It is a 5,000 year old discipline from India.

There are different yoga styles but it doesn't matter which one you choose.

People start doing yoga for their body health to improve their health problems such as chronic pain, fatigue, obesity, asthma and more. Yoga can also reduce anxiety and depression changing your brain.

But it's more than a physical activity, it's more than all the things above. It's not only about flexibility and the perfect pose.


We all spend most of our time thinking about the past and the future, regretting things, being sad about what happenend yesterday, months, years ago.

Yoga helps you to concentrate about the present, what's going on in your body and who you are.

You can find happiness in your present. And spread it on your mat and in your social relationship.

It makes possible to feel your entire body, which muscles are active? Where are your legs and arms?

With all the possible movements and pose you can understand the mind and body connection.

Because our true selves is not a result of our jobs, of the things we do, the house we live in. We are not the sensations or emotions we feel.

Strip away the emotions and somewhere deep down inside you will find out who you really are.

With all this smartphones, Social Networks we don't actually understand what is the real life.

With Yoga you can focus on yourself and make the best decision to actually live your life, feelling things and knowing real people.

Connect your body and mind and FEELGOOD.


Yoga reminds you to breathe. You breath deeply to soothe the anxiety caused by the feelings we have to the various situations we deal with everyday.

Learn to breath and gain control of ourselves.


It keeps your desires in check. Let you understand what you actually want and what you actually need.

What we actually want is a lot less than we think we want.


Devastated from the death of a friend, a family member, or a major event can be the factor that prompts people to re-evlaute their lives, and their connections. They question connections with those people they know, friends, family and people they work with.

Yoga helps people re-connect, re-evaluate and bring their lives back and be born again.Some people experienced the connection with the Divine.

So Yoga is about your spirit, your soul and mind.
