Why choose Yoga to improve your well-being?
In this day of deadlines and stress, our general state of health is compromised on a daily basis. Providing equal maintenance of physical, mental and emotional health is the key to relieving stress, to reducing physical ailments and injuries and to experiencing contentment with all that we do.
This union of integrated health is achieved with Yoga. Yoga means “to yoke together” or “to unite.” So with regular practice of Yoga, the body, the mind and the soul unite together to provide a thorough workout and work-in through the heart space to heal unhealed emotions – energy in motion – to restore wholeness to the body and ultimately, overall wellness.
Did you know…
Definition of HEALTH is defined as: “The state of being free from illness or injury.”
Definition of WELLNESS is defined as: Wellness is more than being free from illness…It is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and NOT merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Yoga provides the medium for exercising and balancing wellness on all these levels.
