Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice. Some practice purely for the physical benefits, others for the mental, and some want to explore deep spiritual values. People come to yoga when they’re ready, when the time is right. Everyone has their own unique combination of reason that lead to a yoga mat.
It’s not necessary to put your foot behind your head.
With yoga we use breath and body to access the mind. Inside a more quiet mind we observe thoughts that arise. Through the observations we can better understand ourselves and others. The practice becomes a moving meditation, a heartbeat of energy to ignite our breath and ground us into the present moment. With each conscious breath we move into the moment… this moment, this breath. It all begins with an inhale…
My personal yoga journey began in 2002 when a friend brought me to my first (and much needed) yoga class at Yoga Center Mpls. The practice promptly became my personal medicine and catalyst for positive life changes. It humbles me to share the teachings and healing power of yoga with anyone is ready and willing to receive.
