ABOUT SARVANGA YOGA
The Sanskrit word Sarvanga is made up of two parts "Sarva" meaning all or whole and "Anga" meaning limbs or body. Altogether it can be taken to mean All Limbs or Whole Body and reflects the holistic nature of yoga and the ethos of the studio.
Yoga works in so many ways for so many people that we at Sarvanga feel it is a self-treatment that we should all have the chance to learn. It is something we can grab with both hands and adapt throughout our lives. Yoga changes with us and enables us to change for the better. To know ourselves better enables us to take control, to improve, to treat ourselves well. We do not need to master yoga to enjoy the rewards, we need only open ourselves to exploring it.
At Sarvanga Yoga we are always working to create and maintain a safe space which allows for the deeply personal journey of a yoga practice to be guided with care to the student, community and with respect to the ancient linage of that which is yoga.
This is a place for learning and for personal and spiritual development, and the teachers and practioners we ask to join us in working from this space are committed to maintaining this for you.
