It’s considered to be good for mind, body and soul.

Yoga is currently being offered at Kwah Hall in Fort St. James every Monday from 5-6 pm from January until March.

Yoga is an ascetic Hindu discipline involving controlled breathing, prescribed body postions and meditation with the goal of attaining a state of deep spiritual insight and tranquility.

The stretches and positional exercises are developed to promote good health, fitness and control of the mind.

Other physical benefits of yoga include:

  • Increased flexibility.
  • Increased muscle strength and tone.

  • Maintaining a balanced metabolism.
  • Weight reduction.
  • Cardio and circulatory health.
  • Improved athletic performance.
  • Protection from injury.
  • Helps you sleep better
  • Fights food cravings

Things to remember before starting a yoga regime:

–          Yoga can be intense. It’s not just about stretching as much as it is about strengthening.

–          Yoga is a mental and spiritual practice…not simply physical.

–          Find what feels good for you and stick with it. Take it at your own pace.

–          You will gain a sense of self-satisfaction after each class leaving you feeling stronger and relaxed.

The classes are open to the community and anyone can register.
