Yoga is an ancient art and science whose benefits are innumerable! In fact, yoga & meditation are at the top of the list for stress relief. The physical postures help to increase inner and outer strength, flexibility, range of motion, and overall health. Mental focus and clarity are increased, as well as stamina, endurance, organ performance, personal empowerment, heightened awareness, and higher consciousness. Yoga uses breath work and relaxation techniques which can reduce high blood pressure, ease chronic tension and stress, and strengthen immunity. The practice consists of centering with breath work, dynamic physical postures, guided visualizations, and meditation. In certain classes, affirmations are used to help uplift and reprogram the mind in a positive direction. Even though a little goes a long way, and most individuals feel results after just the first practice, we suggest taking a minimum of 2 classes a week in order to discover the many gifts of Yoga. By becoming a disciplined practitioner, you will be amazed at what this ancient practice unveils!
