I’m sure most of you are already familiar since yoga has become so commonplace, but for those of you who don’t know, yoga is an ancient practice of body movement and breathing that dates back over 5,000 years originating in India. The word “yoga” derives its meaning from the Sanskrit word for “to yoke” or “to unite” implying that yoga can unite the body and mind.

We love to practice yoga for so many reasons. There are countless studies proving the health benefits of doing yoga even as little as twice a week. These health benefits include strength, better body image, cardiovascular benefits, and more. Click here for more information.

And if you read our post from last week about “mindfulness” there is a ton of evidence showing the positive correlation between the practice of yoga and being more mindful in your day to day lives. We are hoping to provide yoga classes in house once we get up and running so stay tuned for more information on that.
