What Exactly is Yoga?

Want to know a secret...if you can breathe...you CAN do yoga! You really can! Yoga is much more than just the practice of poses (asanas). Though traditional pose practices can be very beneficial, when they are combined with the other aspects of the yoga philosophy, wholeness can be achieved. Meaning...your body, mind and spirit can start to feel healthy! Yes, even in today's busy world that we live in.

Yoga is an ancient method used for spiritual and physical development. The word literally translates to yoke or union. So now, what exactly are we trying to yoke or create a union with? For a very simplified answer, we are working to create a healthy joining or union of our mind and body. This in turn can pave the way for strength, vitality and peace of mind. Sounds nice, right?! It certainly is doable. I invite you to give a few classes a try and check in with yourself to see how you feel!
