Yoga

Yoga is a practice that integrates the mind, the body, and the spirit. This is balanced by emotion, intelligence, and action. Practicing yoga relieves everyday stress and improves your general health and well-being. Practicing yoga develops strength and flexibility. Yoga helps mental calmness by using meditation techniques to clear your mind in a calming way. Yoga also helps body awareness; you are at one with your body. This helps how you feel with your body, helping to improve your posture and also improving your self-confidence.

If you can breathe you can do yoga.

Helps with flexibilty, strength, and balance, linking breath with movement to join mind, body, and soul.

Mental Calmness: Yoga as a practice is intensely physical. Concentrating so intently on what your body is doing has the effect of bringing a calmness to the mind. Yoga also introduces you to meditation techniques, such as watching how you breathe and disengagement from your thoughts, which help calm the mind.

Stress Reduction: Physical activity is good for relieving stress, and this is particularly true of yoga. Because of the concentration required, your daily troubles, both large and small, seem to melt away during the time you are doing yoga. This provides a much-needed break from your stressors, as well as helping put things into perspective. The emphasis yoga places on being in the moment can also help relieve stress, as you learn not to dwell on past events or anticipate the future. You will leave a yoga class feeling less stressed than when you started.

Body Awareness: Doing yoga will give you an increased awareness of your own body. You are often called upon to make small, subtle movements to improve your alignment. Over time, this will increase your level of comfort in your own body. This can lead to improved posture and greater self-confidence.
