Yoga Benefits us Physically by: Benefits us Mentally / Emotionally:
I encourage students to listen to their bodies because you know your body best and what you're able to do. If a pose does not feel good then honor that feeling, stop to rest, modifiy it, or simply experiment how that posture would better work for your body.
- improved body awareness, reduced stress by releasing tension from our bodies
- increased flexibility, balance and strength reduced anxiety and depression
- reduced aches and pains improved self worth through empowering postures
I take into consideration every student’s physical abilities and teach them accordingly. Props (blocks, straps, chairs, bolsters, the wall) are used to better enable one to feel successful in a pose. Working within your limits, you gain a new sense of self and self-confidence as you become more comfortable and stronger in your body.
Yoga is so much more than just "plain exercise". Yoga is a gift we give ourselves- stepping out of our busy days, that will always be busy, and declare that "I deserve this hour to take care of myself!" We are so used to caring for others, and must remember that it is just as important to take care of ourselves- not only because we deserve it, but also to assure that we are "filled up" and have the energy to attend to the important things and people in our lives.
