New to Yoga?

The benefits of yoga are many. Babies are born yogis. Once we were all able to pull our toes up by our ears and laugh about it. Then we aged, got injured, and began carrying stress in our shoulders and back. In short, we lost our balance.

Yoga is an ancient practice that helps create a sense of union in the body, mind, and spirit. It brings us balance. Yoga creates a more toned, flexible, and strong body and improves respiration, energy, and vitality. It helps maintain a balanced metabolism. Yoga promotes cardiovascular and circulatory health and can help to relieve pain.

Mental benefits: Yoga helps you relax and handle stressful situations more easily. It teaches you how to quit the mind so you can focus your energy where you want it to go.

Spiritual benefits: Yoga builds awareness in your body, your feelings, the world around you, and the needs of others. It promotes an interdependence between mind, body and spirit and helps you to live the concept of “oneness.”

Who Can Do Yoga? Anyone can do yoga no matter how old you are. Whether you are a couch potato or a professional athlete, size and fitness level do not matter because there are modifications for every pose. The idea is to explore your limits, not strive for some pretzel-like perfection.
