Yoga is a holistic path of health and self-development that is believed to have originated in India over 6,000 years ago. It is a time-tested path for developing a deeper experience of yourself and the world. In Sanskrit the word yoga means, “to yoke or unite”; it can also mean, “discipline”. Yoga is a journey of self- discovery. It is a systematic technology to improve the body, understand the mind, and free the spirit.

Yoga is not a religion; it is a discipline without dogma. A person of any faith can practice yoga.

Yoga is for everyone! Yoga is a practice that anyone, regardless of age, sex or race can use to realize his/her full potential. The strain of modern life often leads to physical and mental pain, illness and suffering. Yoga helps to integrate the mental and physical back to a state of balance and alignment.

Yoga gently rejuvenates the body. Yoga affects every system of the body. It calms and strengthens the nervous system. It increases blood flow to every organ and increases oxygen to all your cells. Practicing yoga tends to make a person more flexible, stronger, more energetic and more youthful.

By restoring the body, yoga frees the mind from negative feelings and emotions. The primary goal of yoga is to restore the mind to peace and simplicity. Yoga is a technology for arriving in the present moment. It stills your mental chatter, which allows you to see things more clearly. The regular practice of yoga can help you face the turmoil of life with steadiness and stability.

“The spirit in me, bows to the spirit in you.”
