What is Yoga?

Yoga is a holistic discipline which supports health and wellbeing. Yoga teaches that mind, body, and spirit are connected.

Hatha Yoga uses a system of physical poses accompanied by breathing techniques to purify the body while promoting a sense of mindfulness in preparation for meditation.

Restorative Yoga uses various props to allow people to stay comfortable and supported in a pose for a longer period of time without discomfort or stress promoting relaxation and release of tension.

Both Hatha and Restorative styles of yoga are used in session.

The many benefits of Yoga:

  • Stress relief
  • Increase energy
  • Better flexibility and posture
  • Inner peace and a sense of serernity
  • Improves balance
  • Maintains the nervous system
  • Releases tension and eases pain


"In my experience, Pilates is an intelligent and well integrated form of exercise that can be tailored to every fitness level. From athletic conditioning, to post rehab training, or to improve posture, flexibility and strength. Everyone can benefit! It is a great way to practice mindfulness- by being present in your body and breath, which then leads to reduced stress and a feeling of connectedness."
