There are countless benefits to taking regular yoga classes, including stress reduction, increased circulation, flexibility, strength, toning, weight loss, improved sleep patterns, relaxation, the list goes on and on! A regular practice (at least 3 times per week) can reduce the symptoms of many chronic diseases not only through the physical practice, but also through the mental benefits of awareness and focus. The yoga poses are meant to touch and maintain as many parts of the body as possible. Just as you brush and floss your teeth every day, physical wellness is dependent upon the frequency with which you mindfully move, stretch and tone the body. Research is indicating over 80% of diseases are linked to stress. Yoga is a fantastic way to get physically and mentally healthy. Your time on your yoga mat gives you a much needed opportunity to unplug from the hecticness of life, to get out of the rat race, to calm and quiet your mind, to focus on breathing and to mindfully work through any tension you are experiencing in your body. Yoga is truly life-changing if you commit to a regular practice (and we hope that you do!).
