Founded in 1999 in Wangara by Margaret and Keith Willcocks.
Our aim was to create a serene and unique place for people to attend to learn about and practice the ancient art and science of traditional Yoga. The academy is named due to history and association with the practice of Yoga taught by Margaret in her community before moving to Wangara. It seemed only fitting to name the academy Greenwood Yoga Academy to align our evolution from its roots in the local area.
We are a family business delivering family values and we understand the stresses and strains of everyday life. Our philosophy is based on the Yamas (universal law), from the ancient Yoga Sutras by the esteemed yogi sage, Patanjali. The Yamas are:
1. Ahimsa: non-violence, non-harming of all living beings - compassion
2. Satya: truthfulness, non-falsehood
3. Asteya: non-stealing (this applies to people's time too - we always start and conclude on time)
4. Brahmacharya: restraint from harmful influences
5. Aparigraha: non-avarice, non-possessiveness
Our style of Yoga
