Every week we will be turning the focus on one particular Yoga pose (Asana). We will give you some interesting facts so you can find out more about the benefits of certain Yoga Asanas which you will do regularly in class. We hope this will help you understand more about each pose and perhaps give you some extra guidance on how they can help your body and mind.
