Kinesiology for Health and Fitness


Yoga

Yoga has been practiced around the world for over 5,000 years, and offers a variety of physical, emotional and mental health benefits. With regular practice, yoga can:
  •     Aid in weight loss
  •     Increase flexibility, strength and fitness
  •     Improve posture
  •     Reduce stress
  •     Tones the muscles
A basic yogic practice is made up of three main components: Meditation for stress reduction, pranayama, breathing techniques that help you to control your body and mind; and asanas, poses to stretch your muscles and increase flexibility and muscle tone.   Yoga is non-competitive and leaves you feeling invigorated, yet calm and relaxed.

Classes will start as a beginner level and progress to an intermediate level. Each class consists of meditation, pranayama (breath techniques), and yoga poses.  Class ends with relaxation. See class dates below.
