Our body is a living vehicle that we have abused and misused, and it shows wear and tear and all the experiences we have gone through. Gentle yoga helps you realize that you should not take your body for granted. It’s a gift!!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,It’s the main character in your life’s movie….SO BE KIND TO IT!
We all know of yoga’s numerous benefits. In gentle yoga, you take time to feel your body move. Breath and movement are pathways to keep the organs healthy and the joints lubricated. We are made of energy, and gentle yoga makes you listen to your own words and slow your pace a little.
You stay in a pose long enough to enjoy that you are not pushing yourself. Gentle yoga equally strengthens and stretches, increasing flexibility and repairing muscles that are in need of love.
Gentle yoga keeps the atmosphere free of competition and comparison. The energy of the class is generally happy and calm.
Most importantly, people are becoming aware of their body and how it works individually. And seeing them return for more every week is rewarding.
The yoga I teach is extremely gentle, and my preference is to give verbal cues of modifications rather than hands-on adjustments. It is suitable for beginners and a very friendly class.
