September is National Yoga Month, and as always we’ve got lots of fun yoga related events planned at the spa. Whether you’re new to yoga or a long time practitioner, it’s a great time to get motivated and inspired! Why yoga?
FEEL GOOD Simply put... Yoga will make you feel better! And not just right after you finish a class or your own practice. This feeling carries you throughout your day inside out, improving your mood, your relationships and your own sense of inner peace.
MORE THAN JUST TONED The benefits to Yoga are many; however mainly the two important areas are detox and increased flexibility. Over the course of our lives, our bodies accumulate numerous toxins daily from many substances we ingest or are otherwise exposed to: from foods to chemicals, to environmental pollutants.
Cleansing is increased as we sweat more, with a purifying effect on all tissues of the body. The body heat and circulation increases and allows us greater flexibility and greater range of motion to deepen our practice and truly stretch into the depths of an Asana (yoga pose).
Yoga alone burns fat, builds core muscle, increases overall muscle strength, increases balance, allows for more normal sleeping patterns, decreases stress, restoring the condition of our joints when practiced safely-while detoxifying the body.
Added benefits we love: · Increased Strength · Better Focus and Concentration · Overall Sense of Well Being and Satisfaction · More even and even elevated Moods · More balanced emotions · Empowering insights into ourselves, allowing for more freedom and satisfaction. · Better quality of Sleep and mind recovery
