Yoga itself brings about changes in the the health of the body due to the muscles becoming toned and supporting the skeletal system.
Yoga in the modern day is aimed at more the physical effect, but the nature of Yoga is to develop the mind so that there is a whole health benefit.
The pushing, striving nature of modern day exercise creates a deep contrast from the simplicity of Yoga. Yoga is for your whole personal health.
For many it can be difficult in a gentle posture and it can be easy in an advanced posture… it is only our unique perception and body type.
I try to teach how to enter a pose with the mind engaged, to stay in the pose with integrity, even when we feel we need to move on, and to come out of the pose with the same integrity we came into it.
With Ayurvedic medicine as my other field of teaching, I do my best to help students identify how Yoga will best serve their personal body mind type.
Often the type of exertion and pace we put into our Yoga practice, is creating more of a long term imbalance. Yoga can be created for your specific body and mind type. To find exactly what you need so you do not over do, or injure your body.
Beginners classes explore all the postures, breathing practices, health benefits and contraindications. If you are looking for more flexibility, it really is important to think of Yoga as the long term plan. There is no short cut to bringing suppleness to strong contracted muscles. It takes time and diligence.
