What are benefits to practicing Yoga?
The benefits of yoga extend beyond your time in class. Physical benefits include improved flexibility, balance and strength. Yoga helps us reconnect with our body and how we move. A regular practice will bring a heightened awareness to how we move, sit, walk and stand and improving our posture and functional movement. Focusing the mind on the breath and the posture helps us quieten the mind, enabling us to move, rest and relax with grace and ease.
