The Way Things Ought To BeWe believe that Yoga is an effective method of body movement that can help to maintain a healthy spine.  By keeping your muscles long and flexible, it places much less strain on your joints.  This will help maintain better posture through the aging process.

Now, do we expect you all to be able to turn yourselves into pretzels? Not likely, but it’s nice to have something to aspire to.  The old adage is true, if you don’t use it you loose it. So we believe that moving your body in very specific ways to maintain your flexibility is one of the most important things you can do for your body, your mind and your spirit.  Not to mention that you’ll have more energy to do other things in life that bring you joy.

I hate stretching!  Some people love it, but I actually hate it.  Yoga is not stretching for me, it is the process of following my breathing in and out and while I do that, I find a way to let go of tension that I am holding in a certain area of my body.  Muscle pain often occurs because of guarding and shortened muscles, yoga helps me to let that tension go and find balance in the system again.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to
    get the hang of it!
