A few words

Hygia was the ancient Greek goddess of health. She was the daughter of Asclepius, god of medicine. While her father was more directly associated with healing, she was associated with the prevention of sickness and the continuation of good health.

In Greek ‘hygeia’ meant ‘soundness’ or ‘wholeness’. Hygiene in medicine was about maintaining the ‘wholeness’ of the body and keeping it fit. This is called health.  

Hygia Yoga aims to help people have a healthy body and mind in order to prevent sickness and maintain a good health.
