Learn About Yoga
Yoga, most frequently translated as “Union” is an ancient practice and philosophy that is five thousand years old. It is thought to have originated in India from an oral tradition in which teachings were transmitted from teacher to student. There are several branches of Yoga, each suited for a different approach to life. All the paths of Yoga lead ultimately to the same destination-to union with God or the Absolute and many of them overlap.
Yoga in the twenty-first century has been swept into mainstream Western Life. It is as popular as Aerobics and even prescribed by proponents of Western Medicine. But this was not always the case, especially when I was teaching Yoga twenty-five years ago. So then why do Yoga today, other then for the reason that’s it’s popular?
Hatha Yoga (the Yoga associated with asanas or physical poses) is an excellent non-impact form of exercise that rejuvenates and energizes as well as relaxes the body and the mind. It is an excellent partner to other sports and forms of exercises and I believe, absolutely essential for most individuals over the age of forty. It influences not only the muscular-skeletal system, but also every other system of the body.
Meditation, concentration, and pranayama ( breathing exercises) are Yoga practices that purify and strengthen both the body and the mind. They are essential in helping to manage and reduce stress in today’s fast paced life.

“This has been a very enlightening class. I have really enjoyed it and I am practicing the things we read about and went over in the class. I can see what stress is and isn’t. There were times I thought I was going crazy. I now have a better understanding about stress and how it affects the body and the mind. In addition, I am now utilizing the breathing method taught in class and I have found it to be a priceless gift. I am so pleased that I took this class. Thank you.” – D. Bodkin
