Exercise and Physical Activity 


Ashtanga Yoga with the inspirational teacher, Jane Piddington.

"Ashtanga Yoga teaches us that to find concentration and a relaxed, calm state of being, we must first deal with the physical body.  Therefore we take our bodies through a sequence of postures, each one preparing us for the next.  These postures, or "Asanas", stretch each muscle, work each joint and progressively improve the health of the body....With commitment to practise and being prepared to adapt postures to make them enjoyable and comfortable, we can move onto a deeper level, where there are mental and spiritual benefits to be found" (Jane Piddington, 2006).
