Calm, strengthen and unify mind and body.
People have been practicing yoga for more than 5,000 years. It combines deep, rhythmic breathing (pranayama), which invigorates and relaxes the mind with physical poses, (asanas) to strengthen, stretch and align the body. One principle of its success suggests that essential thoughts and messages are delivered more effectively when the body is relaxed and the brain well oxygenated. When you move more, you breathe more, which brings added oxygen and nutrients into every cell.
These yoga practices have tangible benefits that make them immediately rewarding-they increase flexibility, invigorate and restore the body, elevate energy, deepen awareness, support the immune system and pave the way to living a more mindful life. Learn More…
