Yoga, as we teach it, is a system of health and nutrition maintenance that is long lasting and cultivates a sense of happiness and fulfillment. We can help you to achieve this by teaching you how to tap into inner energy reserves and generate health and happiness from within. True happiness is a result of a daily investment in health. Through a regular practice we can help you to counter general physical decline due to aging, negligent care of the body, use of medical prescriptions and/or the accumulation of excess tension.
Our Yoga methods meet you where and when you need it. We are concerned with your over-all health, indicating where the imbalances need correction. We address your lifestyle, immune system and organ strength. We look at your whole well-being, on the physical, mental and spiritual aspects that make up who you are. We guide you to increase your vital life force, the powers of healing that reside within each of us.
Our sessions give you more overall comfort in the body and the mind, improve the posture, encourage deeper breathing, balance energy, improve concentration, and nurture a sense of inner calm.
The focus of this yoga practice is on breath and spinal aligning postures for better health, mental clarity, and inner peace. The benefits of these balanced routines are numerous. The body can maintain increased energy, flexibility, ease and awareness, to allow the internal workings of the body to function optimally.
Through consistent practice with our programs it will lead you to delayed aging, increased energy and a remarkable zest for life.
