Staying connected now is more important than ever, not only for the physical relief of tension that your yoga practice offers but for maintaining a positive mental outlook. With your studio Yin Yoga classes now offered online in "The Virtual Yoga Studio" you can combat social distancing the right way and maintain connection.
Maintaining your yoga practice is a way to practice self care during this challenging time. Caregiving for loved ones and continuing to work in these different circumstances it is more important than ever to allow yourself a window of time daily, or several times a week to unplug. It is vital to your good health.
Mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. Traditional Hatha Yoga coordinates breathing and physical movement, improves focus and concentration, and help participants regain control of their body and mind.
Traditional Hatha Yoga/Yang Strength and Movement classes help clear the mind of racing thoughts while improving mental concentration.
The Ghosh system of yoga is known for improving the health and flexibility of the spine with each posture while cleansing the internal organs and glands with backbends, forward folds, twists, and stretching. There is stillness between the postures, this is not a "Flow"or "Power Yoga" class. This is a full body practice with postures sequenced for the practitioner to build internal heat in a natural, progressive, and efficient way. The variety of standing postures increase stamina, strength and improve cardiovascular conditioning.
Deep breathing(pranayama) which is practiced in Traditional Hatha Yoga has the ability to clear toxins from the body. Once these toxins are no longer contaminating your body, you will be able to feel your mind is free. It is then much easier to see life in a positive way.
This is the perfect time to begin a "Stand Up" yoga practice. You’re in the comfort of your own home, you can work at your own level without performance anxiety, respecting what is an appropriate movement for each practice.
I urge you to make a New Beginning, start where you are and experience BIG benefits.
