Every body can learn to practice yoga. It is a practice that can nourish and support us throughout every stage of our life.
Yoga works by training our minds to pay attention to what is happenning in our bodies. For example we feel how the position of our arms and shoulders affect our neck and our ability to lift our chest and to breathe. We learn to work with the legs to engage the spine which in turns improves our posture and levels of energy.
When students learn how to position their mind (attention) as well as their bodies, the practice of yoga supports homeostatic balance in the body. Thoughts and emotions alter the chemical environment of the body as does organ function. When we work mindfully within postures we both support organ function and teach the mind to release from tensions and worries.
Without intrinsic meaning, actions feel empty. We become discontent and unhappy with the emptiness of our efforts. Yoga is very much about finding purpose and meaning.. it is about creating space so that our unique contribution to life comes forth from within us.

The intention is that the physical body act as an instrument through which we can experience clarity and wisdom. Students develop great internal peace from Yoga.
