Yoga has no boundaries or borders, no comparisons or judgement. It’s always about what you can do and being okay with what you can’t. Yoga changes your physical and mental perspective the moment you step on the mat, while preparing the mind and body for long-term health.
Yoga is for everyone! Yoga has no limits. It's about breaking through past patterns that have been holding you back.
Yoga works, it's simple and in line with how the body is designed to move and operate. No matter your age, fitness level, flexibility, or state of mind, Yoga IS for you. What's holding you back from breaking through the borders?
1.Strength & Flexibility
Yoga focuses on building strength and increasing flexibility. If you're looking for a reliable "exercise" routine, strengthening your body and stamina, yoga is for you. Yoga's postures are not meant to turn your body into a pretzel, hey are meant to strengthen and tone your body from the inside out, head to toes, leaving you with a stronger core, spine and mind. I always tell people in class "If you see someone next to you that looks like gumby it's just that they have further to go to get to the same sensation" Yoga Journal!
Each yoga pose has it's own benefit and purpose. These postures are designed to reinforce the muscles around the spine, the very center of the body (core) , and the mind. Yoga empowers you with poses (asanas) to use in real life-bending, stretching,lifting, reaching and twisting.

3. Simple Yoga Practices to Bring You Lasting Peace of Mind
Yoga is a tradition that has been traced back for over 5,000 years, but researches think yoga may be up to 10,000 years old and is now practiced by over 11 million Americans. Some enjoy yoga for its physical benefits, while others do it for the peace of mind it brings. Yoga leaves our minds fresh and clear just by reconnecting the body and breath, transcending of the body, and the cultivation of relaxed concentration. The real yoga happens off the yoga mat....yoga is not about how perfect your form is, how perfect the pose looked- its about how you live your life both on and off the mat.... "yoga is a life long moving meditation" A few positions that help bring tranquility to the mind are LotusPose ( a a=simple crossed leg position),Corpse Pose or Svasana which helps relieve depression and headaches, as well as Standing Forward bend which is considered an inversion. inversion benefits
