Yoga for Mind- Body Wellbeing
Yoga to help balance the physical, mental and emotional stresses created by modern day lifestyles
Yoga is inherently therapeutic and the benefits of practicing are extensive. Yoga for mind- body well-being uses traditional yoga, mindful movement and contemplative practices to help balance the stresses created by our modern lifestyles. Integrating these simple tools into a yoga practice can help boost energy, improve flexibility and strength, activate the relaxation response, soothe the emotional body, reduce anxiety and stress, improve depression, stimulate restful sleep and enhance immunity.
I have been in the health and wellness industry for more than 25 years and teaching Yoga for over 17.I have acquired an excess of3000+ hours teaching experience, earning my E-RYT 200 certification .
I took up yoga to manage a back injury. It helped but I was never really without pain or some kind of discomfort until in 2012 I was drawn to Integrative Yoga Therapeutics. This style of yoga led me to understand the aches, pain and discomfort we feel are the result of physiological and emotional patterns within us and are messages the body uses to highlight the need to change. Ignoring these messages can lead to injury, illness, anxiety, depression and low self esteem.
We all have the ability to learn new patterns to change, the key to this - awareness. Awareness can help us tune in and respond to those messages the mind-body network sends. In my case I had ignored those messages in my day to day life always "pushing myself" to be a better wife, mother, yoga teacher. Now my yoga is about an inward listening and feeling into the messages my body sends. I trust that inner wisdom and respond by using simple therapeutic interventions or tools to help bring balance to my body and mind.
I believe Yoga is a powerful, easy to learn method of attaining good health and well- being.It's my passion to teach in a way that EVERY BODY can develop that capacity to connect, respond and change. This empowering way to practice yoga doesn't need to stop on the mat, The tools and techniques can be brought into our day to day life where the real opportunity for transformation can happen.
