Meditation is usually built-into yoga and together they form a fantastic tool set for remedy as well as restoration of body and mind. They each function to calm the effects of stress and restore our peace, tranquility and internal balance. When used with one another they can not merely enhance physical wellness but in addition lead to substantial boost in joy, peace and love of life. For the keys to a healthy body and mind why not try this powerful combination of yoga and meditation.
If you really want to enjoy yoga, be sure to know your body's limits and don't push yourself past them. So, even though you might feel ready to proceed to the next level of poses, don't do it quite yet. Give yourself a little time. Your first poses should be relatively simple and relaxing before you proceed to the intermediate level.
Today, yoga is commonly practiced throughout the world and holds a prominent place in the emerging field of mind/body medicine.
We have recently started to add yoga classes to our group fitness timetable.
We will be adding additional yoga classes as the demand increases.

Students learn to focus on the physical and psychological reactions caused by various postures to develop their awareness of mind, body, emotion and spirit. You work according to the limits of your individual flexibility and strength.
