About Yoga

Yoga, from the Sanskrit word ‘to yoke’ or ‘to join’ is the ancient practice of joining mind, body, and spirit through yoga poses, controlled breathing, and meditation.

Through the physical practice of yoga postures you will develop an increased body awareness, better posture, improved balance, a stronger core, and greater flexibility.

Just a few of the physical health benefits include: lowered blood pressure, improved blood circulation,  more efficient lung capacity, higher cardiovascular endurance, increased lubrication of the joints, ligaments, and tendons, improved gastrointestinal functioning, a more efficient metabolism, and a stronger immune system.

Mentally and emotionally, yoga will help reduce stress, improve concentration, increase calmness, and help develop an overall positive state of mind.
