All About Yoga

WHAT IS YOGA?
The word yoga means "union" in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where yoga originated. We can think of the union occurring between the mind, body and spirit.

WHY DO YOGA?

The body
:
Yoga
reduces stress in the body. Through physical postures, yoga helps you develop a balance of strength and flexibility, creating energy, vitality, and an enhanced quality of life.
 

The mind
:
Yoga
develops clarity of the mind and the ability to focus. Unnecessary and unproductive thoughts are washed away with every breath. Having a clear mind can bring perspective and insight into your daily tasks and decisions.

The spirit: Yoga helps you experience moments of great inner peace, and allows you to nourish your heart and soul.
