Yoga is an ancient science whose benefits continue to be proven in controlled studies. What makes yoga so unique is that it develops greater awareness of the body, mind and emotions.
Greater body and breath awareness allows you to feel and engage the nervous system and musculoskeletal system in a new and more conscious way.
As you consistently practice you will notice where you can feel and where you can’t. This is important information to help you build strength, flexibility and improve respiratory and cardiovascular function.
