The Art of YOGA!

Yoga is all about feeling good; feel the blood surging through your veins, the energy pulsating through your nerves, the bliss coursing through your whole being. Yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, color, or religion; from the healthiest to the sickest; from the richest to the poorest. Yoga is for the body, mind, and spirit. You learn to use your body, breath, and mind to stretch, relax, and energize yourself. Yoga is highly therapeutic. So get up and experience the art of yoga!

According to medical scientists, yoga therapy is successful because of the balance created in the nervous and endocrine systems which directly influences all the other systems and organs of the body. Yoga acts both as a curative and preventive therapy. The very essence of yoga lies in attaining mental peace, improved concentration powers, a relaxed state of living and harmony in relationships.

Through the practice of yoga, we become aware of the interconnectedness between our emotional, mental and physical levels. The ultimate goal of yoga is to make it possible for you to be able to fuse together the gross material, physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual levels within your being.

Physicians and scientists are discovering brand new health benefits of yoga everyday. Studies show it can relieve the symptoms of several common and potentially life-threatening illnesses such as arthritis, arteriosclerosis, chronic fatigue, diabetes, AIDS, asthma and obesity. Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness, increases body awareness, relieves chronic stress patterns, relaxes the mind, centers attention and sharpens concentration.
