Yoga classes help you to become more aware of your body’s posture, alignment, and patterns of movement. Yoga makes the body more flexible, and helps to relax, even in the midst of a stress-stricken environment.
Physiological Benefits of Yoga include:
- increasing flexibility, and relieving stiffness in the back and neck
- increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons, helping to prevent injury
- muscle toning, increasing strength throughout the entire body, including the spine
- improving postural alignment and correcting round and sluggish shoulders
These enormous physical benefits are just a “side-effect” of this powerful practice. Yoga harmonizes the mind with the body, relieving the detrimental effects of stress upon our physical, endocrinal and emotional systems.
Our Yoga classes are taught by participants in our Yoga Mentoring Program. Applicants for this program must have a 200 hour certificate, and be a Registered Yoga Teacher (“RYT”).
The Mentoring program is designed to help our Yogis discover, develop, and practice, their own unique styles of Yoga. We start from the premise that some Yoga teachers are more inspiring than others, and that our Yogis would like to have a style of teaching that is unique; that would develop a following for them.
We provide workshops for our Yogis with a “mentor” (a Yogi with an ERYT designation from Yoga Alliance) which cover formulating class content and teaching techniques.
The Mentoring program contributes to the extraordinary quality of our Yoga classes. Our Yogis are motivated and exceptional, and the classes embody distinctive content.
