Philosopher and linguist Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767-1735) once said, “True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.”
And what better exercise to start with than yoga, which activates your mind through relaxation exercises and meditation, and helps you tone your body and stimulate your physical condition thanks to the different poses it involves.
We can confidently say that the series of poses and the different muscle stretches performed during yoga help make you feel better in your day-to-day life. Practicing yoga regularly also facilitates muscle and joint relaxation. For example, doing a sun salutation every morning when you wake up can improve your mental and physical condition for the rest of the day.
What you probably don’t know is that, when you practice yoga, you’re put yourself at the border between meditation and full consciousness, which allows you to fully let go of all of your negative thoughts and/or stress.
So, how can you do yoga when you live in the Leeds city centre? Leeds, as the second-largest local authority district in the country, is overflowing with places where you can either begin your introduction to yoga or further develop your practice. You can find yoga lessons at the gym, in dance studios, yoga studios, and even with a personal instructor at home.

First and foremost a philosophical and spiritual science, most people think of yoga as a synonym for weird and difficult poses, or torture, for those of us who are less flexible. In reality, though, anyone can practice yoga, no matter your age or your level.
Yoga is an ancient discipline that originated in Indian tradition, from Hindus and Buddhists in Northern India, and which comes from the Sanskrit root “Yug”, which means “to unite” or “to join”. The goal is to free your body, mind and spirit from outside forces and to practice asceticism, meditation and physical exercise.
A millenials-old discipline, yoga and meditation work towards personal development, mental and muscular relaxation and good physical and mental health.
Now widely established in Western Europe, yoga consists of several different forms:
Yoga is thus a fine and complete practice that reinforces your mind, strengthens your core, and helps you manage stress.
Other types of yoga also exist in Indian philosophy; however, the majority of yoga lessons out there focus on hatha yoga:
Hatha yoga is aimed at improving your meditation via a series of breathing exercises, which yogis call pranayama, and over a thousand different poses (called the asanas in sanskrit).
In ancient Indian tradition, strongly influenced by ayurveda, a person’s life expectancy is calculated in number of breaths, instead of days.
In fact, we can easily understand the key role that breathing has in yoga, since it can improve your immune system and help you live longer and healthier.
There are many different reasons why you should take up yoga in Leeds.
Western Europe is currently at the mercy of many potentially pathogenic agents, such as stress, anxiety, autoimmune diseases, low self-esteem, and general unwellness, which can quite literally ruin our lives.
If you add to that the physical and mental pain tied to those different illnesses, then you’ve got yourself a great reason to start taking yoga lessons.
Yoga is a great sport that can help you:
There are many different benefits to doing yoga.
Whether it’s prenatal yoga for pregnant women, a traditional yoga lesson, an introductory class, or a full-on yoga retreat, everyday practice of yoga involves stretching, bending and twisting your muscles.
As a result, your spine will become less rigid and your joints less oxydised. It’s a strong stress reliever that can help prevent most chronic brain, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal diseases and disorders.
Learning to breath well, to develop your own energy, to balance the mind, to obtain a restful sleep, etc. all help you to experience what yogis call the state of samadhi, the final stage of both raja and hatha yoga.
You must have already reached an intermediate or advanced level of yoga to achieve this.
Having a healthy body and increasing your longevity are two of the main objectives of yoga.
And there is no need to convert to Hinduism or Tantrism, or to start meditating with mantras and tantras, in order to take yoga lessons at home.
Whoever wishes to link yoga and wellbeing has a good incentive to appeal to our online tutors, as well as to our face-to-face instructor Alice.
Doing yoga can also be perceived as a type of maintenance of your physical body, where every movement works to relax your muscles, tissue and organs and to help you become more flexible.
All types of yoga are good for your body.
And, thanks to our private instructors on Superprof who have offered up their services to teach you yoga, you can even take individual lessons to advance in a more peaceful environment.
Our yoga classes are open to all and thus give you a bit more freedom than the group lessons offered by the different yoga studios in the centre of town. Here, you’ll have a personal yoga instructor just for you, teaching you the proper movements in the comfort of your own home.
You will first start by learning how to breathe well, and then you’ll move up to the basic poses, like the mudras, which indicate the different hand gestures to adopt during your pose (asana), and focus on your breathing (pranayama).
Each session will further deepen your knowledge of this ancient art form, and you’ll eventually learn to master the specific postural system of the type of yoga you practice:
By continually developing your abs and loosening your muscles with these different positions, touching your toes will soon be as easy as lying down.
However, always make sure that you warm up beforehand, as is key before any type of physical activity.
Besides helping you detoxify your body and get toned, private yoga lessons at home will also allow you to discover Indian philosophy and culture.
And what’s better than taking individual yoga classes in Leeds to prepare for a yoga retreat in an ashram in India that will further develop your practice?
All you have to do is type “Hatha yoga Leeds + Superprof” on Google, and you’ll see all of the different classes we offer appear before your eyes.
