Welcome to

More than an escape, it reduces stressby activating your Parasympathetic Nervous System.  Many types of yoga help you relax-especially the specific pose called Savasana-that last blissful pose in most classes. Here are my favorite benefits of yoga, but science is discovering more and more as we understand yoga better.  Which one strikes you?

  • It strengthens your body.  
    • Along with cardio and weight training, yoga can be practiced as part of a well-rounded approach to strengthen your major muscle groups and promote stability around your joints.  
  • It promotes your flexibility and range of motion.  
    • ​Especially the spine, yoga can improve flexibility and mobility in all major muscle groups and joints, help to release stored tension and move with more ease and comfortability.
  • It helps you balance by encouraging stability of your joints & increasing your proprioception.
  • It encourages self-discipline and reflection. 
    • Yoga is an individual practice, whether you're in a class, a group, or alone-you can make each pose passive or active, so self-discipline is given an opportunity to grow each time you're on your mat. Quiet moments create space for reflection and introspection. 
  • It increases your ability to focus. 
    • Each pose has a specific drishti-or unwavering point of focus-to help you stay present and let go of your "To-Do" list, simply allowing the moment to be enough.
  • It gives you well-deserved and needed "me" time. 
    • Life is full of stressors.  There seem to be expectations everywhere you turn.  There are emotional triggers all around.  Your mat can be your retreat. Your safe place to simply breathe. Your break.  Because you deserve it-we all do.
  • It can remind you that you are innately good, perfect and whole.
