The word ‘Yoga’ comes from the Sanskrit term ‘yuj’ which means to merge, join or unit. Yoga is the union of the mind, body and spirit. Knowing oneself, the functions of the body and the ability to look at life evenly is part of living Yogic life. The body is a temple of the mind and by embracing the discipline and tranquillity gained through Yoga we can learn to appreciate and nurture it ever more deeply.
At Yoga with Bunny we practice a mix of different types of Yoga, mainly focusing on Hatha Yoga. “Ha” meaning “Sun” and “Tha” meaning “Moon”. It is a Yoga form full of balance working complementarily to help build flexible, strong and healthy bodies.
Yoga has a long and ancient history as a form of exercise which helps many people to relieve muscle tension, relieve back and neck pain, improve blood circulation, reduce tension and anxiety, reduce fatigue, improve core strength and quality of life, and balance the mind and body as we grow.
Many of us live sedentary lives and do not give our bodies the exercise that they require. Continuing to neglect our bodies can build up all sorts of future harms. Fortunately, regular exercise classes such as Yoga, can continue to support our physical and mental well being in a low impact and relaxed manner. The benefits of Yoga, either from home in your Pj’s or in a class environment are massive for body and mind.
Most people are not aware of their true level of muscular strength and flexibility until they have begun at least a few months of yoga practice. We do not require the use of expensive equipment or expensive classes to get started in achieving that awareness, we just encourage and help you to become alert to your own wellness. Your body and mind will begin to develop throughout your practice, and you will start to see remarkable changes. (Find out more about Yoga)

Consider combining a heavier Yoga practice to drive yourself further. Calisthenics sounds like a scary word but it simply means emphasizing the impact of using the weight of your body to increase your strength, fitness and flexibility.

The aim of Calisthenics is to improve your strength and balance making it a great fit with Yoga, with the flexibility and control gained from Yoga enabling you to push yourself further and vice-versa.
