The Benefits of Yoga

Yoga offers physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages.

For patients going through an illness, recovering from surgery or living with a chronic condition, yoga can become an integral part of their treatment and potentially hasten healing. Yoga can support the healing process and help the person experience symptoms with more centeredness and less distress.

Breathing, yoga-based movement, and mindful meditation, helps children, youth and students bring their attention to the present moment and prepares them for learning time.

Yoga helps elderly people find their centre and strengthen their core, leading to improved balance that can help reduce risk of falling. Group yoga can also provide a space for greater connection and community.

Overall, yoga can be adapted to all types of bodies to bring about physical and mental benefits. Yoga helps individuals to find greater openness in their bodies and confidence in themselves.

I assisted each of them on the Cow Face pose using a strap and few were able to touch their fingers/hands - they were so excited! Everyone tried their best to follow the instructions to perform the poses and I could see improvements in them. A few advised they could feel the stretch in their different body parts during the class.
