City-caliber Yoga with small town hospitality!

What is Yoga? Hatha Yoga is an ancient discipline that develops and integrates the body, mind and spirit. Yoga systematically strengthens, stretches and energizes the whole body. Internal organs and glands are bathed in increased blood circulation. Muscles and connective tissues are strengthened and massaged. The nervous system is quieted and strengthened; and the mind’s ability to concentrate and focus are enhanced. This comprehensive system of self-care has been known to bring vitality, health, deep relaxation and calmness of mind to those who practice it.

PHYSICAL BENEFITS

FLEXIBILITY– Stretching your body in new ways will help it to become more flexible, bringing greater range of motion to muscles and joints.

STRENGTH: Many yoga poses require you to support the weight of your own body in new ways, including balancing on one leg or supporting yourself with your arms.

MUSCLE TONE: As a by-product of getting stronger, you can expect to see increased muscle tone. Yoga helps shape long, lean muscles.

PAIN PREVENTION: Increased flexibility and strength can help prevent some types of back pain.

BETTER BREATHING: Most of us breathe very shallowly into the lungs. Yoga breathing exercises focus the attention on the breath and teach us how to better use our lungs and even calm the central nervous system..

MENTAL BENEFITS

CALMNESS: Yoga practice is intensely physical. Concentrating so intently on what your body is doing has the effect of bringing calmness to the mind.

STRESS REDUCTION: Physical activity is good for relieving stress. This is particularly true of yoga as the concentration required during the poses seem to melt away your daily troubles. The emphasis yoga places on being in the moment can also help relieve stress.
