Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual exercise developed in the 6th century BCE. Yoga means Union; to yoke, or unite. The intention of Yoga is to unite the body and the mind, the physical and the mental, creating a powerful synergy for awareness and healing. By yoking mindfulness with therapeutic movement and postures, yoga acts as a catalyst to release tension, anxiety, pain, Myofascial restrictions, and emotional stress from the body. In this effective and gentle practice, we are invited to quiet the mind, open the heart, and center our attention on the body and the breath. This practice of presence is the foundation for authentic health and vitality and an opportunity to transform the patterns that bind us into nourishing and life-giving habits.
