In yoga, everything is connected. The physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of yoga have long been reported by practitioners and are now being confirmed by scientific research. Yoga is so much more than stretching. It is essential for maximum range of motion and stability in the joints, to increase strength and balance, which is especially crucial as we age. Yoga is not a “magic cure-all.” Yoga is not a religion. Yoga does have a way of releasing built up emotional and physical tension present in connective tissues, joints and muscles. Yoga helps create space in your mind and body. And if you stay with it, it will change your life, one breath at a time.
