The science and philosophy of yoga offers
- poses for the body which stretch, strengthen, and bring a new life and awareness into the body.
- breathing exercises and techniques have the potential to awaken a new way of being with oneself and understanding ones own mind-body connection.
- active relaxation techniques, how to center and meditate, and self-inquiry and reflection exercises to support an individual in moving inward, allowing for a new way of being to begin.
From here, we slow down and begin to observe the patterns and habits that drive us.
