There are many different styles of yoga out there, and it can be pretty daunting to know where to begin. For me, yoga is simply about feeling good. Feeling good in your body - stronger, more flexible and agile - is a pathway to feeling good in your mind, heart and spirit. Yoga is about unleashing the happiness that is already there, inside every one of us - it’s just that we are often too distracted, or caught up in our own stories to feel it. Yoga is the process of letting go of fears and our own self-perceived limitations, and coming to the empowering realization that we are already whole and complete, just as we are.
Everybody can do yoga. Most students come back to yoga again and again, year after year, because it makes them feel so good. After a yoga class, you feel like you have had a great massage. Yoga promotes well-being on every level by:
- balancing the nervous system
- massaging the internal organs
- releasing excess muscle tension
- improving circulation of the blood and lymphatic system
- calming the mind
- leaving you feeling relaxed and energized at the same time
All you need to bring to class is a yoga mat and a positive, can-do attitude. My philosophy is just show up and do the best you can. If you are concerned about your ability, no worries! Everyone works at their own level and there is no competition. Be prepared to sweat, laugh, be inspired and make new friends!
Finding the right teacher makes a big difference. Come to my class or schedule a private session with me, and experience feeling lighter, happier, more at peace. Allow me to show you how wonderful yoga makes you feel, and what an amazing journey of self-discovery it is. You will be so happy you did!
