Yoga Off The Mat

Bring your yoga off the mat and into your daily life! Reduce tension and stress with something that comes quite naturally, your breath. Simple postural adjustments such as lengthening the spine, moving shoulders down and away from the ears, planting the feet for balance and support allow the inhalation and exhalation of the breath to become more complete which nurtures both body and mind. Whether sitting, standing or reclining we can bring awareness to our own breath to relax a wired mind or overly taxing thought process for renewed focus and clarity.

Gentle stretches to counter the effects of poor postures help relax muscular aches and pains. Moving joints by taking time to attend to their needs throughout the day befriends the body. Finding a balanced stance with a straight spine and uplifted heart is grounding and energizing.

We do not have to have mats to practice and receive the benefits of yoga!
