Mindfulness seems to be the new buzzword popping up everywhere, Schools, Hospitals and local community centres. Mindfulness is a translation from the Sanskrit word Sati, meaning to be in the moment and aware of the present.

Yoga is not just an exercise.
It is so much more than that. There are so many physiological changes going on as we move and breathe in unison. The steady rhythmical breath is the key to joining the mind, emotions to action.
