The beginners journey

For many, yoga starts as a form of physical exercise to keep the body toned, supple and strong. But these are really just the positive side affects of yoga. We then master the breath, calm the mind and access deep relaxation and in time the impact of yoga starts to ripple out beyond the mat into all aspects of our lives.
