  1. I have been practicing since 1997 and have received so much in return. An overall sense of calm, improved breathing which has improved my total health, by focusing on my breath during practice I have been able to take it off the mat and maintain my breath in other stress situations. The most important thing to remember in yoga is your breath. To maintain control of breath while working the edge of physical limit. Off mat this has been huge in remain calm in difficult times and being to quickly work through the problem without any additional stress for me and those around me. Also being able to keep back issues in control and most recently to offset long time periods at the computer. I am committed to my yoga practice and have been practicing now for 420 straight days and can not see ever missing another day.

    Create an excellent day

    I started my practice as a teen and always returned when I wasn’t feeling well or needed a tune-up. I returned to a steady practice a few years ago after a car accident that had me in physical therapy for 15 months with mostly back issues. I could walk again but wasn’t graceful in my movement and still in pain. I went to yoga purely for the physical benefit but my regular practice gave me much more than a physical benefit by bringing me to a more honest place with myself and how I interact with the world. I am much more expressive with my emotions now, and a better communicator.
