The word yoga originated from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means to bind. There are traditionally eight limbs of yoga. In our Newcastle Yoga Studio, we focus on all areas but primarily asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), dharana (concentration) and dhyani (meditation).
The teachings of yoga are a physical and philosophical practice which focus on developing one’s spiritual wellbeing in conjunction with physical and mental health. There is nothing complicated, unattainable or mystical- it aims to provide a simple and holistic practice that creates a greater connection to one’s everyday life.
The word Om is a mantra, said to be the sound of the universe. Somehow, ancient yogis knew what scientists today tell are telling us- everything that exists pulsates and creates a rhythmic vibration. Chanting ‘Om’ allows us to recognise our connection with the subtleties of the universe around us.
We love Yoga and we love Newcastle. We want to bring peaceful, but vibrant and fun yoga to the Wickham and Newcastle community – including Hot Yoga, Dog Yoga, and the practice of deep Meditation. Come join us!
