Yoga is a 5,000 year-old scientific system designed to empower health, happiness, and a greater sense of self. The word yoga means “union” and refers to the oneness of mind, body and spirit. Yoga is not a religion. It supports and enhances all cultural, racial and religious backgrounds.
Yoga helps tone the body and relax the mind. Through various postures and breathing, bones are brought into alignment and muscles are strengthened, stretched and relaxed. This process oxygenates the blood helping to tone the nervous system, improve circulation, promote flexibility and release tension.
It’s beneficial exercise for pregnant women, children, youth and adults of all ages and abilities. Beyond the well-known benefits such as increasing strength, flexibility, and concentration, yoga is non-competitive and fun!
