Yoga (Ashtanga)

Ashtanga yoga classes at The Hive Gym, Edgware

What is Ashtanga Yoga?

Yoga is a form of exercise based on the belief that the body and breath are intimately connected with the mind. By controlling the breath and holding the body in steady asanas (poses) yoga creates harmony.

These asanas (poses) can release muscle tension, stretch and tone muscles, lubricate joints, massage internal organs, increase circulation and help in weight control. Other benefits of attending regular yoga classes at The Hive include greater resistance to stress, a stronger immune system, a balanced nervous system, decreased cholesterol and blood sugar levels and lower blood pressure.
