Focusing on body positioning and stretching, yoga is the ideal activity if you want to increase your movement and flexibility. Regular practice assists in preventing muscle soreness by releasing the buildup of lactic acid that leads to muscle pain and fatigue. Yoga helps the body work together by systematically strengthening different muscle groups, minimising the risk of injury and increasing flexibility and movement.
Following the teachings of BKS Iyengar, the experienced yoga teachers at Infuse Health are committed to guiding your yoga journey. Whether you’re a beginner or an old hand, we’re here to support you to enhance your flexibility, everyday movement, recovery and strength.
Finding everyday movement more of a challenge? Yoga is a safe and accessible way to increase your range of movement and your ability to enjoy everyday activities. Concentrating on lengthening and strengthening muscles throughout your body, yoga helps to maintain and improve your range of movement so you can continue to live your best life.
Taking longer to recover following your workouts? Consider incorporating yoga practice into your life, to aid in your recovery between sessions. A great way to release the buildup of lactic acid following training or sport, yoga is a low-impact, yet effective tool in the recovery process. With regular yoga practice, you’ll always be ready for your next workout or training session.
Looking to improve your body’s flexibility? Working on different muscle groups, yoga helps strengthen and stretch your muscles, giving you greater range of movement and increased flexibility. Even if you feel you are not at all flexible, the use of props to support your practice will help you find a level of flexibility you never imagined you could reach.
Yoga builds strength throughout your entire body as you focus on holding and improving different asanas. As you move, stretch and hold different positions, you’ll begin to build more strength and muscle tone. Encouraging you to move in natural ways, yoga is a low impact and highly accessible way to build strength to help you maintain flexibility and movement.

This 60-minute class is an introduction to disciplined breath work. By definition ‘prana’ is breath, respiration, vitality, life, currents of energy and ‘ayama’ stretch, expansion, regulation, control. Thus Pranayama is about breath prolongation and its restraint.
