Through conscious movement, students open and strengthen every part of
their body. Through breath and mindfulness practices, students calm their
mind and empower their spirit. The result? Inner peace, happiness and ease
in the way you experience life.
One study found that a consistent yoga practice improved depression and led to a significant increase in serotonin levels. Students enjoy greater levels of energy, joy, and a better immune function with all the fun poses we do.
From improved strength, flexibility, balance, and deeper sleep to releasing tension in your body and mind, yoga can both prevent disease and help you recover from it.
Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious and explore who you are. It's
not about touching your toes; it's what you learn on the way down. Yogis
learn to be flexible and balanced in their body and mind, as well as
accepting of themselves and others.
An important component of yoga is focusing on the present. Studies have found that regular yoga practice improves coordination, reaction time, memory, and even IQ scores.
Everyone has a monkey mind, always jumping from thought to thought to thought. Yoga encourages you to relax, slow your breath, and enjoy the present moment during your practice and in everything you do in life, thereby helping you to enjoy life to the fullest.
Yoga reduces the fluctuations of the mind. It slows down the mental loops
of frustration, regret, anger, fear, and desire that can cause stress.
Since stress tends to cause so many health problems, if you learn to quiet
your mind, you're more likely to live longer and healthier.
Yoga poses help to balance the two parts of our nervous system, the fight-or-flight response and the relaxation response. The latter is calming and restorative; it lowers breathing and heart rates, decreases blood pressure, and increases blood flow.
A regular yoga practice gets you moving and burns calories, and the spiritual and emotional parts of your practice may encourage you to deal with any food and weight problems on a deeper level. It may also inspire you to become a more conscious eater.
