Yoga practice is a powerful tool to increase your physical strength, stamina, balance, coordination and flexibility. Practicing on a regular basis will help you feel more grounded, emotionally balanced, receptive to new ideas, courageous, mindful, and present in life. Yoga reduces stress and tension in both your body and mind by cultivating awareness, gratitude, and curiosity with compassion. This curiosity allows us to see ourselves more objectively. We become aware of our physical, mental, and emotional habits, and we begin to recognize them with acceptance and love. From here, we can work to create new patterns and live in the present moment with more ease.
