Yoga is for Every Body
Contrary to popular belief, yoga is not just for the young, fit and flexible. It isn’t just contortion-ism and standing on your head. Yoga can be a path to reduced physical pain, emotional well-being and personal growth. At Yoga Community, we know that everyone can do yoga! We use props (straps, blocks, chairs, etc.) to make yoga postures accessible to anyone, regardless of flexibility, fitness level, size, injuries, age, or illness. We even have classes that can be done from a wheelchair. YOU can do yoga.
In addition, we work to balance the physical benefits of yoga with the relaxation benefits. In our modern society, we tend not to get enough exercise and never seem to have time to unwind and relax. We try to make sure we incorporate both into every yoga class. Our focus on making yoga accessible and comfortable, as well as incorporating relaxation techniques, ensures we meet our goal – which is to make sure that you walk out our door feeling better than when you walked in.
