Now begins the study and practice of yoga
~Yoga Sutras of Patañjali~
Welcome to Miyoga in Kintore, Aberdeenshire – check out the current timetable
The benefits of Yoga practice are many, from a stronger more flexible body to a calm and stress-free mind. Health benefits range from reducing the effects of depression, strengthening the immune system, reducing inflammation within the body, aiding weight loss and building a positive body image.
A 1-hour weekly class helps you find relief from general aches and pains
A 1-hour weekly class will help ease the everyday aches and pains caused by poor posture and help you relax. You will stretch & strengthen muscles, reduce stress and anxiety, improve balance & posture, and learn simple breathing & relaxation techniques. For a general, once a week class try Freestyle Flow on a Wednesday evening.
or practice more often with a Mysore pass for regular 3 times a week practice
For something more focused try Ashtanga Mysore. This traditional practice works best when done more regularly. A set sequence of yoga postures is synchronized with breath in continuous flow, a process that increases strength & stamina, improves flexibility and balance, and builds deep core strength. You will learn how to breathe correctly, and how to use internal muscular locks called bandhas. As you become more confident and familiar with the sequence you will think less and feel more, and meditation begins.
for more specific needs try 1:1 yoga therapy before attending a class
If you are coming to Yoga with a specific short or long-term health condition, or injury you may initially wish to consider 1:1 yoga therapy. Yoga therapy is not like attending a class – here your symptoms are the primary focus, and the Yoga is specific to your needs. You will learn techniques that are specific to your condition, that can easily be applied in day to day life.
