I can’t get by without my weekly yoga classes!

I have found yoga to be THE MOST healing of all the modalities I’ve tried as a woman in her 60s.

My busy mind can be lured into submission in a yoga class. The flow of my daily yoga practice releases pent-up energy from my body through a series of movements designed to strengthen and tone. Music plays in the background to set the mood and intention I want to bring into my morning or evening yoga session.

It’s not unusual for tears to be rolling down my face as I move through my movements and release the tension and negative energy held in the areas of my body I’m focusing on. It feels like such a release. I love it! My body loves it!

And if you want to mix it up a bit, turn up the heat and transform it into a ‘hot yoga’ session.
