YOGA

Yoga is a form of mind and body exercise designed to build strength and flexibility.

History
Yoga originated in India, but there are many variations of the activities that are practiced across the world today. 


Where
Yoga can be practiced anywhere there is enough room to stretch out and there is a flat surface to sit or lie on: studio, house, park, dock and more importantly at Movement Park.

How to play

Yoga is typically guided by an instructor who leads the class through a set of movements and/or exercises to offer students stress-relief, increased flexibility and strength. The best part is that yoga is friendly to people of all ages, abilities and skill levels, which makes it awesome. 

Suggested equipment

- Comfortable clothing                                                                                                  
Adaptations

Movement Park includes everyone, regardless of any ability or circumstance. Some sports and activities may, however, require a few adaptations to make them as accessible as possible. With a positive attitude and a little ingenuity, any activity can be made enjoyable for all.

"Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one's being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union - the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one's actions."
