Yoga is not a sport, or a weight-loss program.  It’s a way of life and it’s meant for women to bring into their everyday habits.  In order to get the most out of it, women must carve out time in their day for 10 to 20 minutes of yoga, making it as easy or as challenging as your own fitness level dictates.  

For myself, I practice yoga every single day, twice, and love every second of it.  I’ve been a certified pro since November 2008, and have a lot of other training behind me as well.  It’s not just about what I know though that makes yoga so special.  It’s the effect it has on my body and my emotional well-being.  

Years ago, about 14 to be exact, I began reserving time each day for quiet meditation, making this about 5 or 10 minutes to start, and working my way up from there.  It made a huge difference on how I dealt with all the usual stress, and then I began to notice other differences as well.  My mental focus was sharper, my memory excellent, and I had a better sense of humor than ever.  I laughed more.  I enjoyed my family more.  

Then I began learning more about meditation as a subject, and that led me to yoga. I started out slowly, using only Mountain Pose, Easy Pose and Relaxation Pose to start.  No muss. No fuss.  

So, why yoga?  It improves your body from the inside out, and has a very positive impact on your life.  From deeper, more healthful breathing practices to increased flexibility and range of motion, yoga does a body good!  

Stay well - and nice to meet you!
