Yoga

“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization. Yoga means union — the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions.”

-B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga is a beautiful practice of getting to know yourself. Of the multitude of exercise regiments and spiritual protocols known today, yoga provides a personal, practical application for living a holistic lifestyle: uniting the mind, body and spirit.

The term “Yoga” describes a¬†general category of spiritual and philosophical traditions within many Eastern cultures. Here in the United States, the Hatha Yoga tradition is most well-known and studied. Hatha Yoga is a physical movement practice of postures (or Asanas) that guides the practitioner into a deeper self awareness, moving the body in relation¬†to the breath.

Hatha Yoga has therapeutic benefits for the body. Of its many gifts, yoga strengthens and tones the muscles, supports healthy digestive function, decreases blood pressure, stimulates circulation, supports the central nervous system and detoxifies the lympathic system.

Yoga will put and keep a smile on your face!
