Yoga combines physical postures with breath-work to help increase overall body awareness, strength, rest, and balance. Each pose is held for several breaths and is taught with many modifications and variations to create the best practice for you. It can be practiced at any age and is beneficial for all physical backgrounds. It is an excellent exercise to help fight stress, maintain better posture and create healthy habits for a more balanced body.

Some health benefits to yoga include, but are not limited to:

  • improved posture
  • ease of back pain
  • increased circulation
  • better functioning immune system
  • improved digestion
  • increased muscular composition and bone density
  • improved mobility of joints and ligaments
  • increased focus, relaxation and body awareness
  • aids in burning unnecessary fat
