WHAT IS YOGA?
The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word “Yuj” meaning to yoke, join or unite. Yoga represents the integration of all the amazing aspects of an individual. To bring one’s awareness to their body and to their breath. To unite the physical body with the mind and the mind with the soul. When taught properly, yoga is as much a meditative exercise as it is a physical exercise. It has been an honor to teach an art that guides it’s students through the path of clearing their minds, releasing their stresses and harnessing the power of their body as it unites with the strength of their mind, spirit and the peaceful energy that surrounds them.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF YOGA?
Decreased blood pressure – The practice of yoga increases the circulation of blood and oxygen through the body. A regular practice of yoga can decrease the overall blood pressure.
Slower pulse rate – Regular yoga practice strengthens the muscle of the heart, which allows it to pump blood more efficiently. A stronger heart requires fewer beats and results in a decreased pulse rate.
Increased blood circulation – Yoga improves blood circulation, transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout your body, yoga practice provides healthier organs, skin, and brain, which has even been known to yield a younger looking complexion.
Respiratory – A lower respiratory rate indicates that the lungs are working more efficiently. Yoga decreases the respiratory rate through a combination of controlled breathing exercises and improved fitness.
Cardiovascular endurance – A pulse rate and improved circulation (both benefits of yoga) results in higher cardiovascular endurance.
Organs – Yoga practice massages internal organs, increasing oxygenation of tissues and removal of toxins. This improves the ability of the body to prevent disease.
Gastrointestinal – Gastrointestinal functions have been shown to improve in both men and women who practice yoga. This can be related to the various twists and bending poses that stimulate the intestinal tract.
