The Power of Yoga

Yoga has been studied in terms of many health conditions and has a host of benefits including: stress relief, pain relief, better breathing, increased flexibility and strength, weight management, improved circulation and healing, and better mental focus and presence to the world around us.

Yoga has been shown to help decrease symptoms of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and even chronic pain. Yoga also can help normalize heart rate and rhythm, increase our resilience to everyday stresses.

Yoga or gentle, mindful stretching can also help us to connect to our bodies on a daily basis and give us insight into our health and well-being.
