About Yoga Enlightenment 
‚Äč
What is yoga?
Yoga is a practice or philosophy that has the potential to unite the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the whole person. Yoga has been practiced for 5,000 years and was originally handed down from teacher to student. The ancient practices have been adapted to suit the western environment and challenges facing modern day people. The study of yoga incorporates elements of our relationships with others, personal conduct, asanas (or physical postures), control of the breath, use of the senses, focus, meditation and finally, enlightenment. 

Philosophy
People are drawn to yoga for many different reasons. Some may be focussed on the physical practice, others need to improve the control of their breath or improve wellbeing by controlling stress. Yoga can respond to each of these needs and bring great benefits to your life. Yoga Enlightenment students are invited to explore their own practice and pursue their personal goals. By bringing the awareness to the mind, body and breath, students can remove themselves from the stresses of modern life and move the body in a thorough and systematic way. 
Students individual differences, beliefs and objectives are respected at all times. Students will be encouraged and offered suggestions but never forced. Self awareness and correction are valued more than physical manipulation by the teacher. 

Mission
