Our instructor Francesca says:

Practicing yoga has numerous benefits for both the mind and body. Here are some reasons why yoga is good for you:

Reduces stress and anxiety: Yoga is known to have a calming effect on the mind and body. It helps reduce stress and anxiety by promoting relaxation and reducing the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol.

Improves flexibility and strength: Yoga involves a series of postures and movements that help improve flexibility and strengthen the muscles. This can help prevent injuries and improve overall physical performance.

Enhances mental clarity and focus: Yoga involves focusing on the breath and being present in the moment, which can help improve mental clarity and focus.

Boosts immune system: Certain types of yoga, such as restorative yoga, can help boost the immune system by promoting relaxation and reducing stress.

Now, let's take a look at the different types of yoga:


Hatha yoga is a gentle and slow-paced style of yoga that focuses on breathing and basic postures. It is a good option for beginners.


     Vinyasa yoga is a more dynamic and fast-paced style of yoga that involves flowing from one pose to another in sync with the breath. It is a good option for those looking to improve their cardiovascular health.


  Ashtanga yoga is a more intense and physically demanding style of yoga that involves a set sequence of postures. It is a good option for those looking to improve their strength and flexibility.
