Yoga: For the Mind, Body & Soul

Yoga has been on an upward trend with more Americans practicing today than ever before. A new study by Yoga Alliance has shown that “Approximately 37 million Americans practice yoga today – up significantly from 20 million in 2012.”

Originating in India over 5000 years ago, the tradition has become a worldwide practice gaining more popularly more so now than ever.

Yoga is intended to strengthen not just your physical body but your mind as well. Benefits include many such as: balance, increased flexibility, protection against injury. As well as higher self confidence, reduced anxiety, depression and mental clarity.

This may seem like an amazing deal for a workout. However, some aren’t too keen in starting their yoga practice. Why? Well some feel as though the yoga community is for those who are already flexible, spiritual or in good physical shape.

Yoga is made for everyone!  “Whether you’re a couch potato or a professional athlete, size and fitness levels do not matter because there are modifications for every yoga pose and beginner classes in every style,” says Dr. Nevins. “The idea is to explore your limits, not strive for some pretzel-like perfection. It is a great way to get in tune with your body and your inner self.”​

There are plenty yogi’s around the valley who wants to help you get in touch with your inner self.
