Why do Yoga?

I started taking Yoga classes at the gym after injuring myself during a spin class.
I continued my pursuit of Yoga because it made me feel better, calmer and less likely to erupt
in angry outbursts.

Yoga has really simple yet powerful techniques that quickly reduce tension and stress, along with addressing a whole host of challenging health conditions.

One of the things I love most about yoga is that anyone regardless of their abilities can benefit from
the yoga postures (asanas) and breathing practices (pranayama).

I teach yoga to people of all ages. One of my older students, had open heart surgery and missed class for several weeks. When she came back to class, she told me that what she had learned about breathing in our class time together helped speed her recovery!
