Why Yoga?

Benefits Of Yoga

Builds Strength

Physiologically yoga can support the musculoskeletal system by increasing bone strength, reducing tension in the muscles and improving your posture etc.​

Boosts Mood

Studies show that the brain's gamma-aminobutyric (GABA) levels spike after just a single hour of yoga, which means that yoga can change your brain chemistry and improve your mood.

Protects Joints

Yoga can maximise the strength of joint movement, reducing the risk of injuries and improving performance.

Increases Energy

Studies have found that regular yoga practice has found to reduce fatigue, anxiety and anger, supporting better physical and mental health.

Improves memory & Focus

Yoga promotes self-awareness, and during yoga, the focus is internal. Yoga is a time to shift awareness to become aware of what is going on inside us — allowing us to become more focus.

Improves Sleep

Yoga benefits the nervous system by decreasing the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and muscular tension, which therefore reducing stress, anxiety and improves sleep quality.

The Teacher

I started practising yoga and meditation after my first year of university, where I struggled with anxiety, stress, and I dropped out. Yoga helped me regain my focus and motivation to return to university and complete my degree in BSc (Hons) Business Information Systems.

Yoga and meditation allowed me to graduate with a 2:1 overall, 1st in my dissertation, which was published in a conference paper. After, I was determined and passionate to bring yoga and meditation to those who could really benefit from these practices.

I went on to launch a not-for-profit business called NamasJay, which supports vulnerable children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and who may experience stress, anxiety, low confidence and self-esteem.
