Yoga for Every Body, Mind, and Soul!
Yoga practice encompasses physical movement, breath development, and mental focus, or mindfulness. While Yoga has its roots in India, Yoga is not a religion, nor does its practice conflict with established expressions of Faith. Rather, the practice of Yoga has been reported to develop an overall sense of wellbeing, improved mobility, and expanded cognitive function while offering the student unique methods of developing spatial awareness and confidence in a variety of functional ways. These “tools” are of particular importance to the student living with a movement disorder (as well as for their care-partner!)- a delightful way of exploring new possibilities for body, mind and soul.
A physical yoga practice that includes postures, or asana, may range from simple chair-based postures to standing, balancing, and strengthening moves. In fact, all postures may be modified to each student’s unique requirements. Studies have reported exciting results in individuals of all ages that incorporate Yoga and mindfulness meditation (intentional concentration) as part of their regular exercise and wellness programs.
