Yoga Benefits and info: Yoga directly addresses tension in both the body and the mind. Whatever your skill level or abilities, come find out how good you can feel!
Each student works at his/her own pace. Often many of the benefits are obvious during and after your very first class!
A certified instructor is trained to give clear, step by step instructions. Postures are also demonstrated, and modifications often suggested. You are encouraged to "listen" to your own body and proceed at an appropriate pace for you.
Slow, deep breath will keep you energized and calm as you gently challenge your body at it's own level. Concentration on the breath and the details of the posture keep your mind focused. This attention to your practice will release the chaotic thoughts and worries of the mind.
Yoga is a safe method of achieving optimal physical fitness and health. Muscles are simultaneously stretched and strengthened, resulting in a longer leaner appearance. Joints become mobile and well lubricated with no risk of impact-related injury.
It's a fast paced world, and Yoga offers us a rare opportunity to slow down and re-connect. We are rewarded with increased body/mind awareness. Forgotten priorities are revealed. We become satisfied and rejuvenated, and better equipped to tend to our responsibilities.
Stress will no longer consume our precious energy! Small details of our everyday life are noticed and enjoyed. A consistant Yoga practice will impact your mind and body in many positive ways. This ancient practice is a system of complete health. CLICK HERE TO READ ARTICLE ON RECENT STUDY OF YOGA FOR BACK CARE
