What we think of as yoga today is actually just one small part of a system developed in India over 3500 years ago. In Sanskrit, “yoga” means “yoking” or “oneness” a reference to the desire of ancient sages to unite the body, mind, and spirit into a cohesive whole. Yoga poses (asanas) are one of eight components that the sages implemented to attain this unity. Combined with specific breathing techniques (pranayama), the poses were designed to open energy channels in the body and allow energy (prana) to flow freely.
For modern practitioners, yoga has a variety of meanings. While for many the practice is deeply spiritual, for others it is simply a low-impact form of exercise and a way to increase flexibility. Still others practice yoga to deepen and understand the connection that exists between the body and the mind. Yoga is not a religion. Today it is practiced by individuals from all backgrounds and belief systems. 
A regular yoga practice has been shown to ease stress and improve relaxation, to improve both body image and body awareness, even to aid physiological problems like depression and substance addiction. On a purely physical level, yoga postures improve balance and coordination, increase flexibility and muscular endurance, and aid in both the prevention and repair of injuries
A typical yoga class will include time exclusively for breathing work and relaxation, with most class time devoted to instruction in a variety of yoga poses. The categories and difficulty of the poses performed will depend on the type of class and the ability levels of students attending.
Healing Hands’ Body-Mind Wellness program offers a variety of classes, private lessons, and workshops designed to enhance your health not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Our classes give you the tools to get healthy not just during class sessions, but outside of class as well. More information is available at http://www.healinghandsnh.com/yoga.html
