Yoga is delightful and deserves a place in everyone's life. It is about becoming in tune with your body and creating a dialogue between one's physical and spiritual beings, creating awareness and unity.
Yoga is about becoming strong without having to lift a single bar bell, using one's own body as very adequate resistence. It is about achieving overall fitness in a peaceful, tranquil environment. No grunting, sweaty men strutting around, flexing their muscles and dropping weights. No plastic barbie dolls in lycra drawing attention to themselves.
This is fitness for the introspective. This is a regimen for those seeking true health; striving for well-rounded wellness of body, of mind, of spirit.
And I like it.
Not only do we isolate groups of muscles to strengthen them, but built into every workout is improved breath control, oxygenating the body, sufficient stretching and toning to reduce post-workout pain and stiffness. Each session also ends with a relaxation and wind-down portion. This allows one to catch their breath, remember why they are there, and rejoice in a renewed frame of mind and an invigorated body.
This is about wholeness.
And That's what it's all about!
