What is yoga?
Yoga is a practice where the physical body, mental focus, and spirit of the heart are aligned to strengthen the person through breath and movement.
It is a lifelong “practice” as perfection is not an expected goal. We constantly strive to progress forward, challenging our body, mind, and spirit to attain new levels and reach new places. Through the use of holds, stretches, sequences, and breath, the practice of yoga pushes the person to a healthier place… where the body and mind are stronger, more supple.
There is no competition and it is challenge within the self- to push oneself to the best place without the burden of “others.” The strengthening of the body, mind, and spirit has amazing effects as it encourages happiness, peace, balance, and acceptance.
