Restoring Balance Yoga Glasgow

Principal Yoga teacher Deborah Kennedy – who trained at Balance Yoga, Glasgow’s foremost Teacher Training School gaining a diploma to teach hatha yoga – guide students to develop their practice, celebrate their bodies, improve their wellbeing, advance their postures, and explore yoga in its widest sense to balance the body and mind through movement and stillness.

At Restoring Balance Yoga Glasgow, our principal style of yoga is Hatha. Hatha, as a general rule or classification, contains all of the main postures (asanas) and breathing techniques (pranayamas) used in most other derivative forms of physical yoga such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Kundalini etc.

If you are new to yoga, Hatha is ideal, as it introduces the fundamentals of the postures and breathing techniques to provide a basis for which continued development is based. It’s also perfect for those familiar with yoga to deepen their physical, mental and spiritual practice.

About Our Yoga In Glasgow

Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means to yoke or bind and concerning the physical postures we practice in yoga class, we aim to bring together the body and mind, through the use of the conscious breath.

Yoga originated in India and its’ philosophy encompasses moral codes by which to lead a virtuous life and practices that offer to lead the disciplined to a heightened state of true self-awareness.

However, the yoga that we in the west recognize and more readily grasp, is the physical practice of yoga asanas (postures). These postures will be sequenced to develop physical strength, flexibility, balance, muscular and aerobic endurance, and importantly, body awareness.

What differentiates yoga from being simply an exercise class is the therapeutic value it offers when taught and practiced with respect to body alignment, making it beneficial and accessible to all participants, irrespective of physical ability and increasingly important in today’s age of desk-bound workplaces and sedentary lifestyles.

Furthermore, the weaving together of breath to movement gives yoga a meditative quality which serves to harmonise the body and mind, leaving participants feeling open, strong, balanced and calm.

Our ethos is simply to “restore balance to the body, mind and emotion” through regular practice.
