I am a yoga teacher and yoga therapist in Talent, OR where I teach public and private classes in various settings, including Santo Community Center, Medford, Talent Library, and my home studio. The practice of yoga has transformed my life, and I love to share this beautiful practice with everyone—including those who believe yoga isn't for them. Benefits of Yoga
Yoga supports the whole person. It makes you feel better in mind and body, especially with regular practice. Yoga tools—which are not just poses but include meditation, relaxation, and breathing exercises, among others—are, in the words of Timothy McCall, MD, "as close to one-stop-shopping you can find" for overall health and wellbeing. Whatever the motivation, yoga is deeply beneficial for everyone, regardless of age, flexibility, or previous experience, simply because it is so adaptable to the individual.
It is always a good time to start doing yoga. Even a few minutes a day makes a difference. We all want to be as healthy and happy as we can be; the unique power of yoga practices is becoming increasingly well-recognized in our culture as a means to achieving lasting wellness and peace. Yoga develops flexibility, strength, and a deepening awareness of the inner resources available in each and every moment to increase our sense of calm and resilience and natural joy. It's a practice that you can do by yourself, for yourself, any time, anywhere.
