Private Yoga Sessions I have learned that there are a lot of people out there would love to try yoga but, feel intimidated to come to a large group class. I totally get it, I was one of those people! Not to mention that it is difficult in group classes to get the attention that you deserve as a new student. With a private lesson(s) you will gain confidence, learn correct alignment and posture, and show you the benefits of using props. I highly recommend making an appointment for your free 30 minute consultation.
Private Meditation Sessions Lets speak the truth...people are curious & want to try but, often I hear I cannot clear my mind/thoughts. Well, the truth is we are not trying to turn out minds off. During my 7 months in meditation training I learned so much about meditation and learned that I had no idea really what meditation was. If you are curious and would like to give meditation a try set up an appointment and lets talk.
Mind-Body Connection ~ What is it? The mind-body connection refers to how the brain and thoughts influence the body and its functions. It is well known that the health of the mind affects the health of the body. Positive qualities, such as happiness, calmness, openness, generosity and so on, relax the mind and that improves the state of the physical body. Yoga & meditation work together to help increase the physical state of the body, while helping the mind create calmness.
Benefits of Yoga & Meditation
When practiced together, the connection between mind and body, thereby improving overall fitness and wellbeing. Many forms of yoga combine meditation with the physical sequences, which use controlled breathing throughout the yoga poses. One can meditate without practicing yoga by simply relaxing, clearing the mind and concentrating on controlled breathing. Both yoga and meditation, when used consistently, have proven health benefits.
Stress Management: Regular yoga practice helps to decrease stress responses in your body. Reducing the inflammatory response to stressors on your body will help reduce your chance of stress-related conditions such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Similarly, meditation is an effective stress reducer that is used to help reduce anxiety, panic disorders and agoraphobia, which is an anxiety disorder.
Improved Flexibility: Today’s society is plagued by sedentary jobs where workers sit for the majority of the day, leading to diminished muscle mass, fitness and flexibility. In addition, office work puts more strain on the neck and shoulder from hunching over in front of a computer all day. Yoga poses focus on stretching and lengthening the muscles to increase flexibility and help you with daily movements such lifting and bending. Many athletes incorporate yoga into their workout schedules to improve or maintain flexibility.
Provide Emotional Boost: Both yoga and meditation improve mental focus and deliver a general feeling of wellbeing. Many yoga disciplines are based around an upbeat theme. Some yoga philosophy seeks the good in all things and is created for an uplifting experience focused on the celebration of the heart. Studies have found that yoga participants are happy, peaceful and upbeat in contrast to the control group who experienced a decrease in general wellbeing. Meditation provides an emotional boost through concentrated relaxation, and it can be done anywhere. You can give yourself an emotional boost by taking a 10-minute meditation break right at your desk by simply shutting your eyes, focusing on relaxing your muscles and practicing deep breathing.
In combining yoga and meditation, you will learn how to relax not only the body, but also about undoing the knots in your heart and mind. If you would like more information regarding how yoga and meditation can help you.
