About our New Programs
Our Personal Yoga Training and Yoga Therapy Program offers sessions for general wellness and preventative care as well as for specific health conditions.
Join our seminar Personal Yoga Training and Yoga Therapy: What is Inner Balance? on February 3, 9:30am.
Inner balance directly relates to the body’s central nervous system and consequently our body’s overall health. Any form of external or internal stressors (not enough sleep last night, work deadline, upcoming changes in routines and so on) are part of daily life. Our bodies have the capacity to swing back and forth from stressed to relax but often, we become stuck in the ‘on’-mode or what is often described as a feeling of go-go-go. Breathing, movement and meditation are great ways to help bring the body back into balance internally so that externally our physical balance and strength improve as well.
The seminar includes interactive discussion, Q&A and a gentle yoga practice. No mats needed - come ready to breathe and learn! Breathing is the starting point for listening to ourselves and revitalizing our mind-body connection.
