Benefits of Yoga


Yoga is a powerful self- healing practice that when done mindfully, can be restorative, rehabilitative and meditative. It is a practice that asks us to remain silent, breathe and move. In that place we learn to be more present, we become more aware of our physical bodies. We become more aware of our thoughts and the space between thoughts. We learn what movements and postures support healing and which do not.
