Yoga, meaning union, fosters wellness by connecting the body and the mind. Numerous studies have shown that yoga measurably affects the nervous, musculoskeletal, circulatory, and endocrine systems of the body. Using specific asana or postures, we can take charge of our well-being and tap into our body’s wisdom so that we can heal what ails us. Yoga builds strength, flexibility, and balance without the risk of injury common to high-impact activities.
