What is Yoga?
The term Yoga is derived from Sanskrit and can be translated as Union. The tradition of Yoga can be traced back to the Vedas - Ancient Indian texts composed over 2500 years ago.
Yoga has many health benefits and has been embraced by the West as an exercise system with increasing vigour since the 1980s. Yoga is a vast all encompassing science and the physical postures or asanas are just one aspect. Pranayama or breath control and Dhyana - meditation often features in a Yoga classes too.
There are many different types of Yoga class - some focused on fitness others on relaxation. Gemma aims to blend the various aspects of Yoga with her own experiences to inspire classes which are accessible, fulfilling and fun.
