One possibility is that it involves cells containing iron-rich magnetite crystals, which are found in the brains of many birds and other animals (including humans).
172 million days are lost each year in the UK to sickness, costing the economy over £13 billion*. Minor ailments such as colds and flu are the most common causes of short-term absence followed closely by muscular skeletal problems such as back pain. One answer to reducing sickness levels is to improve general wellbeing.

A seasonal tune up can also provide a boost in energy levels, lifting mood and improving a person's sense of wellbeing.
Not only the sea is influenced by the power of the moon, we are too. The human body is approximately 80 % water and this means the moons impact on our body and emotions can be strong.

Zodiac Yoga works with the moon phases and the astrological signs and provides you with the tools to counterbalance this impact.
