What is Yoga?
Yoga is a healing system of theory and practice. It is a combination of breathing exercises, physical postures, and meditation that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. Yoga is among the oldest known systems of health practiced in the world today.
One of the premises of yoga is that you are using the weight of your own body for overall strength. It reduces stress and tension in the physical body by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. Continued practice of yoga results in a balance of many hormones and nervous system.
Some of the many benefits of yoga are:
Improves strength, balance and circulation.
Increases flexibility, energy and concentration.
Heightens awareness of posture and breathing.
Compliments sports training.
Relieves joint stress and pain.
Reduces stress and relieves tension.
In short yoga makes you feel better. Practicing the postures, breathing exercises and meditation makes you healthier in body, mind, and spirit.
