WHY YOGA

Yoga for Everyone

image40

Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health and well being. Regular practice will help you develop healthy postural habits and improve your breathing and outlook on life. When yoga is done well, you can learn to calm your nervous system by simply applying proper breathing techniques. 

Life Enhancing

Yoga is a great way to improve your overall health and performance in other physical activities. After a run, or heavy workout or mountain bike ride, yoga will balance your body's musculature if done properly. This can protect you from future injuries and leave you feeling fully engaged in your life.

Calm Your Mind

Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to gain clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body and breathing habits. A regular pranayama practice calms your mind and soothes your body.

Testimonials

“Thank you sooo much for a wonderful, inspiring and mind-body opening yoga class on Friday. I appreciate your teaching style and enthusiasm. I realized i haven’t been much into yoga because I hadn’t yet found the right teacher/teachings before. Thank you for inspiring me to learn and practice more. Now I understand why you’re so excited about your practice! My hips received more of a wonderful, grounded workout then they ever have. I could feel my body releasing for hours after class, which felt great. I love the inner focus and discipline the class requires…Thank you for your warm, fun-loving spirit and for your dedication to your path.” W. 5/4/08

“…While attending your class, I was once again reaffirmed that I am right where I need to be right now and all of the time. I love the way the theme was woven all through class. Thank you for all that you teach and your unwavering enthusiasm in your classes.” W. 4/21/08
