Course Description:

Medical study after study prove that the ancients were right! Yoga is one of the very best ways to increase health, happiness and overall well-being. A quick web search will show Yoga for just about everything, and it is offered everywhere. Why Peaceful Mindful Yoga? We’re not that hard - fast - workout yoga so many are doing these days. We are offering Yoga as it once was with mindful movement through peaceful postures with lots of breathing. The benefits begin right away, within the first few calming breaths of the session. In time students shed stress and extra pounds, drop medications, strengthen muscle and bones, sleep better, regulate blood pressure, and make headaches history with a lasting sense of well being that just doesn’t happen with conventional exercise. A unique theme is woven through each class that offers Yogic philosophy and life lessons that can help us live happier - freer lives, and feel more connected and in control of our daily lives. Modifications on the positions are taught. Some students do more, some less. If you can breathe - you can do this Yoga. In our increasingly busy times, knowing how to relieve stress is becoming more and more important to our health and quality of life. If you’re brand new to Yoga or just getting started with exercise please sign up for the Monday 6 PM class, you can always switch to any of the other classes if you like.
