How does yoga sit with religious faith?
Many people question whether yoga is compatible with having another faith, be it Muslim, Christian or Jewish. Although, yoga shares historical roots with Buddhism and Hinduism, the modern practice of yoga is not inherently a religious activity. Yoga is an umbrella term that encompasses many different forms, some of which are more spiritual than others, for example Bhakti yoga is the practice of devotion. Even when the practice is spiritual, it does not specify a religious faith, and there are many groups around the world that have woven the practice of yoga into their own religious faith, for example, PraiseMoves and Jewish Yoga Network.
What is the Fix approach to yoga?
At Fix, our goal is to share the therapeutic benefits of yoga in a way that is safe, accessible and inclusive. The classes are kept small to make sure you get individual attention and are supported in your practice. Our classes use physical poses (asana), breath techniques (pranayama) and body awareness to develop strength, flexibility and balance. The practice also helps to bring stillness and calm to our busy minds through relaxation and mindfulness. It is the kind of therapy we can all benefit from, whatever your belief system.
