AEROBICS, YOGA & KUNGFU CLASSES.
Regular physical activity over a lifetime may overcome the effects of inherited risks such as coronary heart diseases, cardiovascular diseases, stroke, high blood pressure (hypertension), peripheral vascular diseases, some forms of cancer, osteoporosis and others.

We breathe in and out over 21,600 times a day. In normal or controlled habitual breathing most people do not breathe efficiently, and a results, use only a fraction of their lung capacity. When people are stressed or anxious they breathe from their chests, taking rapid shallow breaths or worse they hold their breaths. Without sufficient oxygen, we become fatigued and lethargic.
Yoga induces a “relaxation response” associated with reduced nervous system activity and a feeling of well being probably due to an increase in antioxidants and lower levels of stress hormone cortisol, they suggest.
Yoga not only helps in prevention of lifestyle diseases, but can also be “a powerful adjunct therapy when disease arise,”
Yoga positions are practiced to gain steady posture, health and lightness in the body.
All yoga positions are intended to directly or indirectly quiet the mind.
Students should also be encouraged to take part in relaxing activities and sports. These activities are a useful resource for combating the adverse effects of stress and may also have a beneficial effect on learning and concentration.
Taking care of oneself has been proven to be effective in increasing the psychological well being of the individual.
