“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” -Bhagavad Gita
Imagine Mindful Yoga
Mindful Yoga classes include postures (asanas), breath work (pranayama), Rest (deep relaxation) and meditation yoking mind, body and soul. The word yoga can be translated as “yoking” or “union.” We welcome first timers and experienced practitioners in a warm and welcoming well being community.
“These four components are complementary with the outcome of: physical and mental fitness, management of emotions and stress, mind-body awareness/mindfulness, and spirituality. More benefits of yoga include: reduction of inflammation, toning the vagus nerve, amping up immunity, changing the brain, strengthening the left prefrontal cortex, and turning on genes that promote health.” (Harvard Medical School Special Report-Intro to Yoga – page 9)
The unique benefits of Mindful Yoga cultivate self-awareness and compassion through non-judgement, patience, beginners mind, trust, non-striving, letting go, gratitude and generosity derived from the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program used in countless clinics and hospitals around the country.
All of our classes are designed to bring mindful and compassionate attention to the body and the breath yoking Mindful Yoga and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (University of Massachusetts Medical Center) traditions.
