Body. Mind. Spirit. When we take care of one, the health of the others becomes easier to maintain. Yoga is not just a fad or a hash-tag. It is time-tested, scientifically proven to improve physical and mental health and here to stay. It is NEVER too late to start practicing yoga, taking care of your body, eating well, or adjusting your attitude.
It is my deep honor to help people find a greater level of wellness in their bodies, to cultivate better stress-management skills, and develop deeper emotional well-being and wisdom.
At 48 years young, I am learning that life gets more and more challenging as we go on, so having tools to meet life's challenges, with inner and outer strength is necessary and accessible to everyone.
To maintain good health and emotional well-being should be one's highest priority but it is not always easy to find time, energy, or finances to fund it. Are you worth it? YES!
Do you suffer energy slumps in the middle of the day? Do you have trouble with sleep? Are you uncertain how to incorporate healthier food into your daily diet? Do you feel you don't have time to take care of yourself? Do you have chronic pain and stiffness in your body? Do you deal with stress and anxiety on a daily basis? Do you find it challenging to 'relax'? Are you a victim of the Standard American Diet (SAD)?
Wellness is a trinity of fitness (stretching, strengthening and cardio), good nutrition, and relaxation/stress-reduction. Together we can work towards attaining and/or maintaining wellness and alleviate the burdens of the modern stress-inducing lifestyle.
