WHY PRACTICE YOGA?
Through working on our physical body and breath we remove energy blocks and tension in the body allowing energy to move more freely. Through continuous yoga practice, the body starts to rid itself of stress, tightness, heaviness and muscular tension, detoxifying, replenishing and rejuvenating all tissues, muscles and organs of the body. The body cleanses and balances itself from inside out. As a result, the energy starts to flow more easily, the mind becomes clearer and more peaceful and the nervous system returns to its natural state of well-being. Once that happens, everything in life starts to flow and the natural state of peace, contentment and well-being comes easily.
