FIND YOUR INNER PEACE AND STRENGTH 

With all the high intensity training and the overall speed of life, sometimes it's nice to simply slow down. In this class, we will move through poses that will help transform both your body and mind ultimately helping you find an inner calmness/peace, strengthen the core, tone muscles, and enhance balance and stability while leaving you feeling stronger and more centered.

Beginners are WELCOME! Whether you’re a couch potato or a professional athlete, size and fitness levels do not matter because there are modifications for every yoga pose. The idea is to explore your limits. ​YOGA is a complement to all exercise programs and healthy lifestyle and a great way to get in tune with your body and your inner self.

Requirements: Yoga mat, towel, and water. Consult your medical doctor if you have spinal or neck injuries.

GENTLE YOGA. Gentle yoga maybe perfect for people with movement limitations, stiffness due to lack of exercise or only strength exercise; relief from disabilities, e.g., arthritis, back pain; recovery from surgery or injury; for seniors, new practitioners, pregnant women and those seeking stress-reduction or weight management. A gentle yoga approach is an important compliment in programs to reverse heart disease or provide relief from the challenging conditions of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, or mood disorders.

BENEFITS OF YOGA.
Yoga is a great tool for staying healthy and focuses on your body’s natural tendency toward health and self-healing. “The purpose of yoga is to create strength, awareness and harmony in both the mind and body. While there are more than 100 different types of yoga, most sessions typically include breathing exercises, meditation, and assuming postures (sometimes called asana or poses) that stretch and flex various muscle groups.

PHYSICAL BENEFITS.

“The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen soon chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis and headaches. “Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.” Other physical benefits of yoga include:
 Increased flexibility
 Increased muscle strength and tone
 Improved respiration, energy and vitality
 Maintaining a balanced metabolism
 Weight reduction
 Cardio and circulatory health
 Improved athletic performance
 Protection from injury

MENTAL BENEFITS.
Aside from the physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind. Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, drug abuse, and an inability to concentrate. Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life. Yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person’s mental well-being. Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration. Body- and self-awareness are particularly beneficial because they can help with early detection of physical problems and allow for early preventive action.
