FAQs

Q?

What is Yoga?

A.

The word YOGA means “union” in Sanskrit. Yoga is rooted in the belief that the body and breath are intimately connected with the mind; and, you can experience the mind/body connection using the breath as a bridge. Through out our day, stress and tension cause the body to tighten-up, causing the body discomfort. In yoga, you use the poses and the breath to learn to open every constricted area of the body and mind. This helps to release and erase tension that would otherwise accumulate and eventually be experienced as discomfort and ultimately disease. As the body relaxes and opens, the mind also becomes calm and less busy.
