  • Be Aware of Your Body

    If you feel any pain or are straining while doing yoga, please back off and take a break. Yoga is one of the most natural things you can do for your body and mind. It should be challenging, yet approachable. There may be times when you feel uncomfortable because you are moving in new and dynamic ways. Peeling away “stuff” that has accumulated within your body and mind over the years is a process.

    Facing these experiences, feeling them fully and breathing with awareness can create new and exciting opportunities for personal growth and transformation. Everyone is unique and has their own boundaries and abilities. Therefore, the key for a safe and fulfilling yoga practice is being gentle and aware!

  • Yoga Practice

    The more you practice yoga, the easier it gets for you to know your truth and what you need at any given moment. And that is why it’s called “yoga practice!”
