Yoga: body, breath, mind and spirit

Author:

Yoga is a journey toward personal integration of the body, breath, mind and spirit. Every person who does yoga, regardless of age or physical circumstances, will benefit from the extraordinary gifts that this ancient practice offers.

The benefits of Yoga are not only physical, but can encourage personal growth and understanding. After a Yoga session, the body is in a naturally relaxed state, which facilitates the deeper processes of Yoga—meditation.

“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of mankind to elevate his/her life by conscious endeavour. It is something to be able to paint a picture, or carve a statue … but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere through which we look…to affect the quality of the day is the highest of arts.” Thoreau, Walden

With the growth of Yoga over the past decade, there is a demand for qualified teachers to guide people safely and effectively in their practice. Nature Care College offers such a course, the Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching.

While firmly anchored in the classical heritage of Yoga, the course is based on a synthesis of the major paths and styles of Yoga, along with an integration of contemporary, well-being practices. It is an aim of the college to give participants a strong foundation on which to build their understanding, practice and teaching of Yoga.

Nature Care College also provides a range of Yoga classes at the college. If you would like to learn more about Yoga, come along to the Nature Care College next Open Day. Held four times a year, open days are a wonderful way to see the college and have the opportunity to speak with students, lecturers and course advisors, as well as attend informative talks. A range of free mini-treatments and a yoga class are also available on the day.
