Yoga is a healing practice that cultivates flexibility, strength, and focus through the synergy of postures and breathwork. By honoring one's body and comfort level, participants can achieve a greater level of flexibilty in areas of the body that are otherwise constricted and often a cause of discomfort . Postures encourage the lengthening of the spine, the deepening of breath, and the discipline of relaxation and strength through a series of postures that engage all major muscle groups.
Intended to be a lifelong practice, yoga is a tremendous factor in healthy living that can alter the way that our bodies flow through life!
