The word “yoga” is believed to come from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means “to join” or “to yoke”. It can also be translated into the word “union” in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where yoga originated. We can think of the union occurring between the mind, body and spirit. What is commonly referred to as “yoga” can be more accurately described by the Sanskrit word asana, which refers to the practice of physical postures or poses.
The postures or poses practiced in yoga are designed to stretch and strengthen both large and small muscle groups in order to increase flexibility, mobility, stamina, balance and strength. Most types of Yoga are practiced in slow and gentle movements and is the preferred exercise by a growing number of people in the world because of the benefits for health and over all well-being.
Private Yoga Lessons can benefit you to improve your yoga practice by having one on one yoga instruction.
When you practice and learn Yoga personally under one teacher, it is a completely different experience. You will realize that what the teacher brings to you is not just skills but an involvement and commitment to your health that is intuitive and genuine.
We also offer pilates and tae bo lessons, as well as belly dance and others.
