Crysterra Wellness Yoga
Yoga can be traced back to northern India over 5,000 years ago. The Sanskrit word “yui” was first mentioned in the ancient Rig Veda texts and translates to “union” or “join”. The practice of yoga involves physical movement (Asana), breathing techniques (Pranayama), meditation (Dhyāna) and deep rest (Savasana), to promote mental and physical well-being.
Yoga is essentially a discipline which focuses on bringing harmony between body, breath, mind, heart and spirit for a holistic life. It is a science of healthy, peaceful and harmonious living with self and others
A regular yoga practice can promote endurance, strength, flexibility, calmness, a reduction in stress and anxiety, improved sleep and overall improved well-being.
Crysterra Wellness Yoga offerings are inspired by these ancient philosophies and have been designed with a modern approach to assist in the pursuit of optimal wellness in our everyday and often hectic lives.

Yoga Nidra promotes the production of low beta, increases and balances alpha and theta, and produces delta brainwaves. 1 hour of Yoga Nidra is said to be equivalent to 4 hours of restorative sleep!
