Mary's Notes on Yoga
Yoga is a mind-body experience that brings something new each time you practice. I teach in the Vinyasa flow style which means we move through the practice with an emphasis on continuous breath and connection from posture to posture. This uninterrupted flow allows for a deeper experience and a real mental release from the daily stresses. The intensity level is up to you and you will see people of all ages and experience levels joyfully practicing together. My sessions include breath work and relaxation to balance the physical effort, and this combination will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Yoga can be taught in a group, as a private lesson, in studios or in homes. Often new students like to start with a private lesson to become comfortable with the practice and learn modifications for their specific challenges. Feel confident in the fact that we all have challenges and things to work through. Yoga can be modified for every person and all will benefit. The expense of your yoga classes can often be reimbursed through insurance or a flex pay system, so be sure to check with your healthcare provider and I am happy to provide receipts and documentation of attendance. Medical referrals are welcome.
