Yoga and Your Health

"The essence of yoga is practice. The germ of yoga doubtlessly is the inborn human longing to cross the threshold of this phenomenal world, which Meister Eckehart expressed in the following words: ‘Know that all creatures pursue, and act, by nature, to the end to become like God.’ "

- Georg Feuerstein

Yoga works on the whole body, promoting strength and flexibility. It keeps the spine healthy and flexible, lubricates the joints, elongates the muscles, maximizes body control and increases breath awareness. Yoga teaches us how to use the breath as a powerful tool for balance and self-control of body, mind and spirit, helping us stretch more deeply, quiet the mind for more effective meditation, achieve greater relaxation & heal more rapidly.
