Yoga is a combination of poses and postures designed to increase strength
and flexibility. Research shows that by participating in a consistent
yoga practice, one gains not only increased flexibility, strength, balance,
vitality, and energy but also overall physical and mental awareness. Research
also shows a decrease in blood pressure, blood sugar, heart rate, and
overall injury occurrence. According to the
Mayo Clinic, yoga is considered one of many types of complementary and integrative
“The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures,
but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”

Yoga is For Everyone
Regardless of your fitness level, yoga is meant to be healing, strengthening,
relaxing, empowering, and calming. The beauty of Yoga is that it's
modifiable; meaning that any pose done on the flood can also be done in
a chair. If you’ve been interested in trying yoga but feel uncomfortable
about your ability to get up and down from the floor, our yoga instructors
are well-versed in chair modifications. Our goal is to create a comfortable
space for you to explore a yoga practice.
Real Stories from Our Students
Margy has been a constantly wonderful teacher. She keeps us limber &
focused and always takes into consideration people's health &
mobility concerns with real knowledge.
I like that the class is challenging, but not coercive. There are things
I can't do, but I never feel bad about it. Lori is very good at suggesting
alternatives for different levels of proficiency. I also like that she
continues her learning, and teaches us new things.
I have taken at least 5-6 sessions with Kandi. I am so happy with her classes
and patience. I look forward to each Thursday morning at 11 a.m.!
