Why Yoga? Yoga is for everyone! New 6 week session begins the first week of April. Take a look at the schedule and choose a gentle class, and evening “time to unwind” class, or a more vigorous class. You’ll be glad you did!
Yoga, with its 5,000 year history, could be considered the “original” exercise program. Why, when other things seem to come and go, has yoga lasted this long? Perhaps the key is yoga’s unique combination of physical, mental, and emotional benefits.
On the mat, yoga improves flexibility, muscle strength, physical endurance, and balance while providing beneficial weight bearing exercise to help strengthen bones. Yoga has been shown to help lower blood pressure in those with hypertension and lower blood sugar levels in those with non-insulin dependent diabetes.
Off the mat yoga encourages mindfulness, reduces anxiety, and encourages the development of a positive body image.
