Practicing yoga unites your body, mind, and spirit, bringing you into total balance. From a physical perspective, yoga increases strength and flexibility, which in turn improves body balance and your ability to hold specific poses. From a mental and spiritual perspective, yoga encourages self-reflection, emotional regulation, focus, and concentration, providing much-needed balance to your inner self, in addition to a feeling of total balance.
At Infuse Health, we want to help you discover total balance across every domain. That’s why our Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers carefully guide you through every asana, ensuring you have the opportunity to find balance by uniting your body, mind and spirit.
Yoga is an ideal way to learn about your body and how it moves. The natural movements of yoga help the brain better sense where your body needs to be without looking, increasing your physical balance skills. Holding set asanas for increasingly longer periods of time enhances body awareness, assists in everyday activities and improves your physical balance.
As our bodies age, we become more susceptible to falls and physical injury. Yoga is an effective way to maintain your balance and reduce your falls risk. With an emphasis on strengthening muscle and maintaining movement, yoga is a low-impact and accessible activity that is ideal for participants of any age. Reduce the risk of falls as you age with the help of yoga.
It’s much harder to regulate your emotions when you feel stressed and overwhelmed, but yoga can help you stay on top of your emotions and help you find emotional balance. Concentrating on your breathwork and your asana, you’ll learn how to calm your mind and discover a sense of peace, skills that can help you deal with the challenging emotions of daily life.
Yoga is a great way to strengthen your body, mind, and spirit, building your capacity to bounce back from adversity. As you progress and work on your technique, you’ll develop new skills in persistence, determination and resilience. Regularly honing these skills will help you cope better with the challenges of everyday life, working towards building your everyday resilience.
