Yoga is about just showing up on your mat, breathing, and moving.

Yoga is an amazing inward journey to knowing your true self accurately. It is an internal exploration; a discovery of yourself, by yourself, and for yourself. As your mind stills, you are able to disengage from your endless cycle of thoughts and discover yourself to be completely separate from your mind. Yoga provides the opportunity to tune into that gap where “You just ARE”!

~ [It is] “ultimately a journey into truth; truth about who you are, what you are capable of…how your actions affect your life.” ~ Baron Baptiste

Our nervous system is quite possibly one of the most important aspects of our body. It is crucial for our perceiving and responding to that which we encounter all around us, as well as the vast interior landscape found within each of us. Our nervous systems monitor conditions within and outside the body, sending out electrical signals to respond to all of these conditions.

Yogic Sleep

Yogic Sleep, aka, Yoga Nidra is a systematic relaxation technique that provides the opportunity to restore equanimity between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. When these two systems operate in a harmonized dance of balance, the body is provided with the framework to be able to maintain homeostatic balance. This allows for optimum healing and restoration to occur on a physiological level.
