WHY PRACTICE YOGA?
Yoga is one of the most well-established and respected
methods of self-care. It is a highly effective set of
techniques to calm the nervous system, increase flexibility
and strength, release physical and mental tension, enhance
sleep, and improve digestion. Yoga includes physical
poses, breathing exercises, meditation, and deep relaxation,
to promote energy flow throughout the body. As body,
mind, and spirit become more integrated through these
practices, we move toward becoming the best version
WHY GARDEN OF THE HEART?
Garden of the Heart Yoga Center's teachers all have extensive experience in alignment techniques, therapeutics, and progressive sequencing. Our classes are taught in a progressive style, with each week's classes building on poses taught the previous week. Over the course of a month, each level class works toward a pinnacle pose, to help you grow and expand into the fullness of the practice of yoga. You will receive individualized adjustments in the poses to facilitate your understanding and learning. All are welcome at the Garden of the Heart, from brand new beginners to advanced practitioners. Garden of the Heart Yoga Center is also recognized as an RYS-200 school for training yoga teachers.
