About yoga health

Given the increasing number of people living with chronic stress and preventable chronic illness, the need for a comprehensive lifestyle modification program has never been greater. Classical Yoga provides the theory and practice. Properly designed and facilitated group Yoga therapy classes provide individuals with renewed optimism and initiate their personal inquiry into how they can support their own healing process. Following the path of Yoga allows one to achieve optimal physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being.

Yoga can be used as a complementary practice and not as a substitute for health care. Please communicate your intention to begin a yoga practice with your health care provider.
