We draw upon the practices of mindfulness, meditation, breath work, the system of Yoga and deep relaxation (yoga nidra) to empower people to create health, vitality and well being while decreasing stress, tension and imbalance. A holistic approach to health involves focusing on the mind not only the health of the ‘body’. By using simple practical techniques to develop a strong, relaxes and flexible mind we also create a healthy well body and stimulate our bodies natural healing response. Practicing can be formal such as sitting, mindful movement practices like walking, sports, yoga or tai chi. Practicing mindfulness also involves inviting an informal aspect to our lives through being aware and present in all aspects of our daily life. Create deep levels of inner freedom, restoration and a revitalized wellness.
Through the teaching and practice of asanas (poses), pranayama (breath), and yoga philosophy, yoga helps promote optimum physical health, clarity of mind stress reduction and a connection between body, mind and spirit. Through the use of alignment, stability in the joints and finding a balance between strength and flexibility for your body, yoga helps you explore a balance between muscular engagement and relaxation. Finally, yoga tunes you into your body with its equal focus on breathwork, aware physical movement and mediation. Practicing a yogic breath allows you to connect the mind with the body creating a sense of calm and increasing awareness thus reducing stress
