"Yoga isn't linear. It's creative. It's about breath. It's about alignment. Yoga is meditation: stilling the waves of the mind, opening the heart, and learning to be brave and humorfull in the face of life's inevitable obstacles" - Waylon Lewis
Yoga translated means "to yoke" or "join together" which essentially can translate to a union of the body and mind. It has been practiced for thousands of years and there are many different styles and disciplines of yoga. Yoga is not a religion, but an aid to a healthier way of living and can be practiced by Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and atheists. It is a beautiful way to bring unity to many different people with varying backgrounds.
When you first think of yoga, you may initially think about a person doing a pose where their foot is over their head or they are doing a pose that seems nearly impossible for the average person. However, Yoga is more than just a series of poses or asanas. It is a practice that exercises the mind, body, and spirit. It can be practiced by all age groups, all different sizes of people, and you don't have to have any prerequisites to do it except to have an open heart.
When you join us in our yoga classes or yoga workshops we will encourage you to put your hesitations aside from things that you think you won't be able to do. Yoga is not about who is the strongest and most flexible, it's about finding yourself and your inner peace. We will be there to guide you through the practice to make sure you leave feeling like you connected to yourself and learned something new about who you are.
