Yoga is a practical and scientific discipline that cultivates mindfulness by addressing tension both in the body and mind. Yoga Asanas are physical postures that support people in finding a balance between effort and ease. Practicing asana can alleviate stress and tension by building inner strength and flexibility. Asanas open the energetic highways in the body to allow the energies to flow rather than stagnate, which is the cause of all dis-ease.

Breathing Techniques – Awareness of the breath brings you immediately into the present moment. All of our stress and worries are either about the past or future. When we consciously work with our breath it provides an anchor point to the present moment where peace is available.

Mind and Meditation – meditation isn’t about stopping the thoughts in our mind, it’s about seeing the thoughts, making friends with them and noticing patterns. As we become aware of the thoughts in our mind we begin to see some of what we think doesn’t make sense, isn’t true and sometimes is a repeated pattern. With practice our thoughts can be shifted towards more positive and empowering thoughts that support our well-being. Thoughts are not our enemy. They are not solid; they are impermanent and can be shifted.
