Yoga is an ancient practice that some researchers believe began over 5,000 years ago by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India. As it developed within the second century into a form of written text (Patanjali’s Yoga-Sûtras), yoga became a tool for those seeking steps to spiritual enlightenment. By implementing these written series of beliefs and techniques, those practising began to experience a healing effect on the body, mind and soul. These techniques used to rejuvenate the body eventually became popular in the West in the late 19th and early 20th century and has slowly transformed into what many of us experience as yoga today.
Sometimes it may seem like practising yoga is something that only a smaller part of the Australian demographic take part in - particularly those who are younger and using group yoga sessions as a social event. The truth is, yoga is something that everyone can participate in - regardless of their age, gender or social background. Yoga is an incredibly individualised form of personal development and therefore no-one should be excluded. Although certain parts of Yoga lessons may allude to its spiritual origins, this should not discourage those who have never considered themselves ‘spiritual’ people. Instead, the practice of yoga techniques should be viewed in the same way as exercising or meditation - it is simply another tool for our body and mind to feel better as a whole.
Through Superprof you can pick from our large and ever-expanding list of instructors to find the yoga lessons that suit your specific lifestyle needs and requirements. Many of our yoga teachers are fairly flexible with their hours, rates, and lesson location. So, whether you are running low on financial support for the week, or you’re unable to physically get to a face-to-face lesson, our accommodating teachers will be able to adapt to your personalised schedule. Moreover, it is extremely important for the majority of our yoga instructors to be able to teach participants from all levels of experience - This means that you will be taught accordingly no matter your skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced). For example, if you are trying yoga for the first time your yoga teacher will introduce you to the various exercises at a pace that is easy to learn at. Conversely, if you are well-versed in yoga and want to reintroduce yourself to the types of exercises taught, your teacher will be able to guide you at a higher level. At the end of the day, we are here to provide a personalised, stress-free teaching experience that caters to your yoga interests and goals.
Primarily focused on physical posturing, Hatha Yoga is well suited to beginners and those wanting to explore the most basic kinds of yoga poses. Participants will benefit from these poses without having to physically overly-exert themselves.
Relaxation Yoga: Relaxation Yoga, or ‘Yoga Nidra’ is a form of deep relaxation that should help to release physical tension and relieve stress and anxiety. By focusing on each aspect of the body such as hands, legs, the rhythm of your breathing, etc. you can achieve a calmer state of being.
Yoga Flow: A type of yoga that incorporates a series of continuous, energetic postures that should ultimately give participants an overall sense of motion and fluidity. Each pose should transition in a similar way to breathing i.e. slow yet rhythmic. The structure of each pose in addition to its intensity will be determined by the yoga instructor.
Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga involves a series of slow long holds & postures that should stretch out your body whilst at the same time promote an overall ‘cooling’ effect. This cooling effect comes as the result of the focus, control & stillness your body has whilst practising these particular postures.
Still not convinced that yoga is worth getting into? Here are some great evidence-based reasons that are sure to change your mind.
Relieves stress & anxiety
Scientific studies have proven that regularly practising yoga over a short period of time can in fact reduce cortisol levels in the body (the hormone responsible for making us feel stressed out). Furthermore, breathing techniques in addition to a deeper connection with our body’s stress signals can allow us to ease symptoms of anxiety through a far more relaxed state of mind.
Increases flexibility & overall mobility
Yoga poses that target balance and coordination can train the body to adapt to the environment and maintain an overall sense of control. Whether you are an athlete training for an event or you simply wish to feel lighter and more composed, yoga can significantly increase your flexibility over time.
Increases cardiovascular health & reduces inflammation
Yoga that focuses on getting blood pumping to each part of the body can have a significant long-lasting impact on our heart health - including lower blood pressure and minimising the risk of heart disease. In addition to this, calming yoga routines may also reduce higher blood pressure problems linked to stress and anxiety.
Improves overall quality of life
Regular yoga classes every week can get us into a positive routine that keeps our mental and physical health balanced and in check. Moreover, it may provide a social outlet for those seeking to improve their general well-being in the company of others wishing to do the same.
