Are you wanting a more balanced life?
Invigorate Your Body, Awaken Your Mind & Empower Your Spirit!
Your body is your vehicle for your life’s journey…To achieve a vigorous state of health, we need regular exercise, pure food and water, good quality sleep and a healthy sex life. Physical work alone does not yield vitality. Optimal physical performance is multifactorial; requiring strength, endurance, power, flexibility, agility and balance amidst constantly changing conditions. But your health is not just physical……..
You can deepen your mind-body connection ….utilizing mindful movement arts and functional exercise wherein your body is your instrument. Our classes challenge you to be fully present-mentally and physically. Once YOU have attracted your own attention, we ask you to tune inward to become an astute observer of how your thoughts effect your breath, emotions, power , balance , freedom of movement and confidence – your Body Language!
You gradually remember your essential nature is Spirit as you engage in a dedicated practice to invigorate your body and awaken your mind . Spirit is your inner wisdom, life force, source of your creative inspiration and the key to your innate power to heal. Whatever beliefs you hold around your spirit/soul are welcome here and will likely be enriched though your practice.

Your path to life balance: Remembering your 5 treasures…
Yoga practices utilize a wide variety of tools to systematically challenge the body and expand the breath in order to train the mind. Yoga benefits our being at 5 levels (koshas), which translate as treasures. (Click here)
At your physical level, Yoga makes your body stronger and more flexible, gives you better balance and bone density.
At an energetic level, Yoga practice increases breath capacity, digestive function and blood flow to stimulate all of your body systems so you liberate your energy.
At the level of your mind and emotions, Yoga is absolutely your best choice for relieving stress! Yoga improves your concentration and focus, relieves your muscle tension, liberates you from anxiety, elevates your mood and promotes your compassion for self and others.
At the level of your spirit, Yoga is not a religion. It is a contemplative spiritual practice and a life science. In the quieted mind state achieved through Yoga practice, you may come to deeply know yourself and experience your connection with all other hearts and minds. You remember your capacity for a higher state of Consciousness and find your path…. in other words, you Discover Your Potential!
So….what are you waiting for?
Now is your time for Yoga.
