YOGA FOR BEGINNERS

It's never too early or too late
Welcome to yoga!  If you’re new to the practice, check out my FAQ for answers to common questions and misconceptions about yoga.  I would love to answer any of your questions over the phone or by email, so please feel free to call or send me a message!
   Yoga is an ancient (some estimates say over 6,000 years old!) tradition of physical and mental exercises designed to create inner peace, balance, strength, and harmony.  The word “yoga” is from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language, and it means “to yoke” or “to join”.  In yoga, we are “yoking” together three things: mind, body, and spirit.
   Yoga was developed in India thousands of years ago and today is practiced widely all over the Earth.  There are many different types of yoga with different focuses.  Iyengar yoga, which was developed by BKS Iyengar, has a strong focus on alignment and posture.  Yoga Nidra is a restorative form of yoga usually accompanied by a guided meditation or visualization.  There is no one right way to practice yoga; the best way is to find the style that works for you!
No matter which style of yoga you practice, there are many physical and mental benefits you can expect to experience as a result of your practice.  These benefits include:

  • Better sleep
  • Improved mood
  • Improved focus
  • Fewer everyday aches and pains
  • Improved digestion
  • Fewer headaches and migraines
  • Improved strength and balance
  • Improved flexibility and range of motion
  • Reduced perception of stress
All this from just yoga?  It’s true!  In fact, the scientific community has been conducting studies for several decades now that are beginning to “prove” what we in the yoga community have known for centuries: that yoga can have statistically significant, replicable, evidence-based benefits for many, many different problems and conditions. 
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Chronic back pain
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis,
  • Asthma are just a few of the conditions for which yoga has been shown to be beneficial in clinical studies.​​
If all this makes you want to try yoga, give me a call today so we can set up a free consultation and begin scheduling your private classes!  Whatever your current level of fitness, I will work with you to develop a custom practice that will address your personal goals, interests, and desired outcomes.
