During the last ten years, I have made a concerted effort to take control of my health, tuning into my bio rhythms, eliminating certain foods from my diet, changing the way I exercise and keeping a journal of my health including sleep patterns.
I have enjoyed sharing my ideas and my findings with others in the faith that they too can achieve improvements by simply being more aware of themselves.
Yoga keeps us supple, present and mindful.
When we laugh we are keeping fit, letting go of tensions, releasing our happy hormones which in turn allow us to let go of the stress hormones. We are in the present moment when we laugh heartily so we are no longer thinking of the past or future. We feel good. It’s free! If we laugh for 10 minutes or more these actions make a difference to our bodies.
People come to a Yoga class for a variety of reasons; physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual. Many people come along because their health care provider has suggested it.
I am going to address those who will benefit from Yoga to keep their back healthy. Now the body parts are all joined so if there is a misalignment with, for example, the knee, this will affect the way the person walks. This in turn will have that person holding themselves in positions to protect the knee. Over time, if the knee has not been corrected then stress of different parts of the body will be affected.
