SE Session 7
The foundation of our yoga program lies in Hatha Yoga, a mind/body practice which is an invigorating, non-competitive form of exercise for men and women of all ages. Every class works on developing strength, flexibility, balance, and concentration and emphasizes body alignment, spinal extension, muscular balance, and the subtleties of the breath. The gentle and versatile nature of yoga promotes physical and mental relaxation, increased energy, and enhancement of one’s overall health.
Benefits of Yoga
Yoga addresses many needs for your body and mind. Stretching muscles can improve and ease movement, decreasing feelings of stiffness or fatigue. Many types of yoga are quite physical, improving your muscle tone and strength. Yoga poses strengthen the core, leading to stronger abdominal muscles and a healthier back. A strengthened core and increased flexibility lead to better posture. Paying attention to your breath can help you relax, release stress, and stay calm. Furthermore, yoga has been found to lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate, and has been linked to lowered cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and better immune system function. Source: WebMD
