Yoga For Beginners in Overland Park, KS

 

New to Yoga?

Is Yoga for me? What once was a practice only known to those from the eastern part of the world, yoga is now becoming more universal. Evidence of yoga’s existence dates back 5,000 years ago. It is not a religion as some may believe, however it is adherent to all religions and improves a person’s spiritual growth. The word ‘yoga’ is derived from Sanskrit roots meaning ‘union’. The union, or connection, of the mind, body, and spirit, makes it a holistic practice. When doing poses, or asanas, the movement of your body connects with the mind by cultivating focus and awareness through the integration and regulation of the breath, known as pranayama. This moves energy through the body, clears the mind, and allows you to connect to your higher self, or spirit, helping to strengthen your individual faith. Yoga helps you to live fully in the present moment, and live a purposeful life.

Yoga is for everyone, and you start right from where you are. It doesn’t matter your age, gender, state of health, fitness level, weight, etc. You don’t have to be flexible to start, as many believe. You will gain great flexibility through the practice of yoga, but the benefits go way beyond. A variety of classes are offered to allow you the opportunity to begin where you are. This gives you the room to grow your individual practice. Yoga is not competitive. It is all about you and your individual growth.
