In 2019 we introduced Yoga to R & R. Our focus is to reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia, physical limitations, and the busy mind, using a well rounded yoga program and meditation classes, adapted to all body types and ages. Yoga is an effective alternative treatment for stress, anxiety, fatigue, depression, inflammation, tension, sleep-quality and overall well-being.
Yoga for anxiety can act as a “moving meditation” that centres the thoughts and can build a sense of calm and wholeness. Others practice yoga to restore the body by increasing strength, improving balance, and enhancing flexibility, but many are dedicated to the yoga lifestyle that includes practice beyond exercise.
Our yoga studio provides a safe place to slow down and step out of the whirlwind of life. A safe place to be reflect and re-evaluate priorities. It may seem odd to connect those dots to the practice of yoga while we are building strength, flexibility and balance, but those are the same tools we need for stability in our daily lives!.
Please join us and try out yoga. You will be surprised at the gift you are giving yourself.
