What is yoga?
The word "yoga" means "to unite" and refers to the fusion of body,mind, and spirit. Yoga increases body awareness,relieves stress, reduces muscle tension, strain, and inflammation, sharpens concentration, and calms and centers our nervous system. Yoga is a great way to care for and love your body. When we take care of ourselves, we can take care of and love others.
