Program Information

Who is it for?

 Everybody is affected differently according to their body's needs. If a part of the body is overused it will be relaxed and an underused part will be stimulated. Yoga teaches and gives us tools to help us 'let go' - letting go of thoughts in our minds and letting go of any 'holding-on' in our body. By opening up and letting go in the mind and body we feel refreshed, renewed and released... in today's busy world, that is one of the best benefits of yoga!
