Mindful Yoga is ...

The word “Yoga” means “union” and implies a harnessing together and a unifying of body, mind and spirit. Yoga is a practice of meditation in motion, and when done regularly, is an excellent mind/body practice for people who wish to move towards greater levels of health.

Mindful yoga is about practicing with awareness of physical sensations, breathing, emotions, and thoughts from moment to moment with unconditional acceptance. If yoga is practiced regularly you will notice many benefits to your physical and mental health. Regular practice will increase your musculoskeletal flexibility, strength, and balance, as well as help you to enter states of deep relaxation and awareness. Many people experience greater serenity about life in general after consistent yoga practice.

In this class we will be engaging in simple, gentle yoga postures. We start with a brief centering and then move to warming up different areas of our body in preparation for the main yoga postures. We will always end our practice with deep relaxation.
