Introduction to Yoga

Yoga is a complete science of life that originated in India thousands of years ago.  It is the oldest system of personal development in the world, encompassing body, mind and spirit.

The ancient yogis had a profound understanding of man’s essential nature and of what he needs to live in harmony with himself and his environment.

They perceived the physical body as a vehicle, with the mind as the driver, the soul as man’s true identity, and action, emotion and intelligence as the three forces which pull the body-vehicle.

In order for there to be integrated development these three forces must be in balance.  Taking into account the interrelationship between body and mind, the yogis formulated a unique method for maintaining this balance which combines all the movements you need for physical health with the breathing and meditation techniques that ensure peace of mind.

In the Beginning…

Acupressure and Acupuncture have been used China for over seven thousand years and northern Indian Yogis’ up near the Himalayas have been using acupressure mats for yoga for the last 2000 years. These yogis found the effects of the deep acupressure treatment very conducive to meditation. In fact, the inspiration to invent The Acupressure Massage Mat came from a Monk who witnessed the real nail beds being used in Northern India.

The pressure of the spikes on the various nerve endings and acupressure points on the skin releases endorphins and oxytocin into the blood stream and this is your bodies natural healing process allowing you to relax and relieve pain.  You simply lie on it for around 10-20 minutes and you can build up to more time once you get used to it.
